8 Relationship tips: How to keep the fire burning in your relationship?
When you first meet the love of your life, it’s all fireworks and champagne! It’s exciting, new, and it’s wonderful, but then reality sets in and you find yourself waking up to the same person year, after year, after year. So don’t you envy those people that seem to be able to keep that fire burning long after the honeymoon period is over? How do they do it? Here we look at just some of the secrets and relationship tips on how to keep the love and passion in a relationship alive long after the fire, for many, would have gone out:
1. Forget all the small stuff
Just ignore all the little irritating habits and foibles and concentrate on the important things in life. Focus on the things that make him great, things for which you first fell in love with him, so that the flavor of his socks and flatulence won’t seem so bad!
2. Just be there for one another
Let your partner know that, whatever happens, you’ll be there for him. Ask what you can do to make his life better today and work together to make both of your lives just that tiny little bit better each and every day.
3. Stoke the fire with some thoughtful gifts
Don’t let the exchanging of gifts just become a birthday and Christmas routine. When you’re out shopping, keep one eye out for something he’d like and buy it on the spur of the moment. It doesn’t need to be something expensive; it really is the thought that counts.
4. Make time to talk
We all know that good communication is the key to a healthy and happy relationship. Put aside some time for talking and concentrate on what you’re talking about. It’s not just about half listening to what he has to say, while you do the chores; it’s about sitting down together, looking each other in the eyes and really discussing things.
5. Have some fun in the bedroom
Relationship tips would be incomplete without intimacy talk. Don’t let your intimate moments get boring. Buy a book or google for some ideas. Some of the positions will give you a good laugh, at least, if nothing else!
6. Go on a date
Don’t get stuck in the same old routine and go out on a date together now and then. Book a romantic meal for two and finish the night with some champagne in front of the fire at home. You’re never too old for a bit of old fashioned romance.
7. Go on an adventure together
Get out of your home and do something different. Go on a weekend trip to somewhere you’ve never been to before just for the sake of it and break the routine.
8. Don’t stop the love
Relationships take a bit of work to keep the spark alive and one of the first things that couples to stop doing is just saying ‘I love you’. Don’t take for granted that he knows you love him; make sure that he knows!
