Dating is demanding, but the real challenge lies in creating and nurturing a healthy, long-term, and committed relationship that you and your partner enjoy sharing.
Reignite passion and feel the fireworks with the following five suggestions.
1. In with the new: plan a unique date
Can you recall the last time you and your partner planned a new adventure together? Finding new activities to collectively engage in adds excitement and fun to a relationship. Try something new by taking turns choosing unique dates. Going out to dinner or watching a movie at home gets old. Instead, plan to rent a kayak, picnic at a lake, pick up salsa classes, or anything else that may spice up the mood and abandon your bedroom routines.
2. Romance in the bed: make couple time and don’t rush it
Scheduling time to spend together in a more intimate manner is important. If you’re not the one who usually initiates bedroom fun, take control, and make time to pursue your partner. What makes your partner feel romantic and passionate? Curiosity about what each person enjoys in the bedroom helps each partner feel desired – a sure way to strike a spark!
3. Amplify passion through text: be flirty
Set the mood for a passionate day with sexy texts and flirty messages. Feeling desired is a sure-fire way to increase romance. Tailor your messages so that your partner knows you choose them as your one and only.
4. Setting the mood: serve happy hour in the bedroom
A bedroom is the perfect place to set the mood for your own private happy hour. Prepare your partner’s favourite drink as well as light bites such as strawberries, chocolate, avocado, and nuts – all great aphrodisiacs. To set the mood, choose music, turn down the lights, and use the time to get to know each other again without the stress and burdens of everyday life.
5. Brighter together: fireworks are more dazzling with the one you love
At home or in a hotel out of town, your environment is inconsequential when you watch fireworks together. Remember, the fireworks aren’t what creates passion; it’s the two of you enjoying each other.
