10 How To Fall In Love Again With Your Partner
Want to feel the way you felt when you first fell in love with your partner? In this article, Beauty and Tips takes a look at 10 ways to fall in love all over again with your partner.
You’re still in love with your partner, there was never a question of that. But it’s important that you don’t lose that spark that makes your relationship so exciting. This is something a number of couples either don’t get or neglect. After the initial “honeymoon” period is over, we allow ourselves to get stuck into a routine of familiarity that breeds boredom and even resent. Before we know it, the great orange and yellow fire of our relationship is nothing but a flame in the dark. To keep your fire roaring, you have to find ways of recapturing those feelings you felt when you guys fell in love for the first time. Let’s take a look at 10 tips on how to fall in love again with your partner.
Revisit Your First Dates
Where did you guys first meet? Where did you share your first kiss? Where were you when one of you said they loved the other for the first time? Revisiting these places can stir the same, powerful and romantic feelings in your hearts again. While sentimentality is a useless trait in some areas of our lives (and even a dangerous one), it’s a beautiful one where love is concerned. Just visiting those places again will evoke sweet memories, transport you back to where you were all those years ago, and remind you both that you’re more in love than ever.
Reminisce About The Past
As well as revisiting past dates, spend some time telling stories of your favourite times together. This is another great tip on how to fall in love again with your partner. Relive fond memories in bed, recall funny anecdotes, and talk about how you felt the first time you kissed each other.
Spend Time Cuddling In Bed
How much do you cuddle in bed? If the answer is “not enough,” it’s time to get your cuddling game back on. Cuddling reassures us of our partners love. It makes us feel warm, wanted and protected. Couples who cuddle are generally happier than those who don’t. If the two of you both have different sleeping schedules, work something out so that you get to cuddle more.
Take A Spontaneous Break
Don’t book for next year. Don’t wait to take a vacation. Take a spontaneous getaway right now. When was the last time you were spontaneous as a couple? When was the last time you just took off together? Spontaneity is exciting, they keep things interesting. Without it, a relationship becomes strict, routine and predictable. And that can really kill its spark. So book a room somewhere, buy your plane or train tickets and pack your suitcases. Head out together and go exploring. Get away from it all and don’t look back!
Get Your Flirt On
Flirting is another good tip on how to fall in love again with your partner.
Forgotten the importance of flirting now that you’ve been together a while? It happens. But as you’ll recall, flirting is FUN and sexy. Don’t stop flirting just because you’re officially an item. Keep it going! The best way to flirt is via text. When he’s at work, send him some naughty but nice texts. Add some romance, too.
Make Something Together
Doing things together is important for strengthening bonds, whether it’s just friends or couples who work together. When it comes to couples, doing something together means you both have something that you can both pour your hearts and souls into. And when it’s finished, you can both look on it with proud at a job well done. It’ll be a great source of accomplishment for the two of you. There are many things you can work on together, whether it’s a passion product, a business idea, or maybe even a charity. Working on a shared project is a great excuse to spend more time together, and it can bring you close together once again.
Ask Each Other Deeper Questions
How much do you really know about each other these days? When was the last time you asked your partner what worries they have, how happy they are, or what their ambitions these days are? So many of us get caught up in a humdrum routine of familiarity that we forget to ask the important questions that strengthen our bonds with our partner. Each week, set aside some time to speaking meaningfully with your partner. Ask each other meaningful questions about how they’re feeling. Learn more about them. You may not have realised it, but you might have drifted further apart recently simply because you didn’t take the time to find out where your partner is at these days.
Plan Your Future
Best way to fall in love all over again with your partner? Get planning your shared future. If you’ve not done this for a while, spend some time plotting your dreams. Where do you see yourselves in five, ten years time? Dream big, create pictures and make it super romantic.
Do Something New Together
Doing something new together for the first time is another wonderful tip on how to fall in love again with your partner. Remember your first weeks of college? They’re always the most memorable. New things are exciting and challenging. Doing something new for the first time with your partner? That’s even more exciting and challenging. Doing the same thing over and over again, such as watching TV and making small talk, is hardly going to rekindle your that spark. Doing something new that’s maybe a bit scary? It’s such a good way to bring the two of you together and help you fall in love all over again.
Surprise Each Other
Had you forgotten all about the element of surprise? It’s time to introduce it back into your relationship. We all love to be surprised – couples especially. A surprise from our spouse is the best type of all surprises. It reminds us of their love for us, puts a huge smile on our face, and breaks up the sterile predictability that can make a relationship boring.
