9 Ways To Help Put The Spark Back In Your Relationship

When you first begin dating someone, everything is new and exciting, and you really enjoy each other. Over time, even though your feelings may be even stronger, the newness and excitement seems to disappear, and relationships seem more like work than fun and romantic. A relationship is like anything else you do in life. In order for it to be a success, you need to work at it. Today we are going to take a look at 10 ways that you can put that spark back into your relationship.

Keep a Bit of Mystery – Don’t always be predictable. Make an effort to keep surprising your partner, so there is always an element of mystery in the relationship. This helps to keep things exciting, and keep the desire going.

Ask about Their Day – When your partner gets home from work, ask them about their day. But, don’t just ask for the sake of asking. Really listen to what they have to say, and show that you are truly interested in the things that they do in the run of a day.

Kiss a Lot – When you first started dating, you likely kissed a lot. If that has slowed down, it is time to get back at it. Over time, many couples tend to stop hugging and kissing. The more you do it, the healthier your relationship will be.

Display Your Affection – Don’t keep your affection bottled up, or private. Show small displays of affection by holding their hand in public, or giving them quick kisses every so often just to let them know that you love them. This doesn’t mean that you have to go full-on with public displays of affection. It’s the little things that matter.

Try New Things in the Bedroom – Get a book of kamasutra and go through it together, and make a list of at least 10 new things to try.  Take a look at the things that turn you on. Read an erotic book, or movie to set the mood. Once you know what makes you tick, you can share this with your partner.

Be Adventurous and Active – Always be willing to try new things with your partner. When you can be adventurous together, you are creating lasting memories that are going to help make you even closer to each other in the long run. Try some activities together, like exotic traveling, salsa dance and unusual painting lessons.

Do Something New – Maybe you need to have a new experience together. Is there something that you are both interested in trying, such as a cooking class? Doing something new and exciting will help to boost your dopamine levels.

Turn off Your Phones – Take an hour or so each day to turn off your phones, computers, the television, etc. and just talk to one another. It is all too easy to get caught up in technology and avoid meaningful conversations. Engaging in deep conversation can be great for the mind and soul.

Take a Staycation – You don’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money on a trip to enjoy a little getaway together. Book a room at a local hotel, and enjoy a staycation with each other. Pick up your favorite meal, bring it back to the room, and spread it out on the bed to enjoy it together.
