How to Keep Your Romance Alive

Updated on August 7, 2013

Rekindle the Romance

Keeping the romance alive and well in any relationship takes a little work and imagination. Normal everyday life can leave couples tired and feeling stressed. The fast pace of daily life can take away from alone time with a significant other. Work, bills, children, and just the hustle and bustle of everyday living sometimes causes romance and private time to be placed on the back burner. Spending a little quality time together is important to keeping the romance alive in any relationship.

Little things mean a lot in a relationship. Love notes placed where they can be found by a significant other or spouse is a great way to let someone know that you care. Simply spending an afternoon alone together in bed can put some heat back into a cold romance. Alone time is the key. Take time to make time for the one you love. Go for a walk, watch a movie, or just snuggle together for a nap on the couch.

Weekend Getaways

A weekend getaway to a private cabin, or a vacation alone together can really put life back into a stale relationship. Plan a vacation to a destination that neither person has been to before. Some great places for a romantic getaway include: Niagra Falls, Hawaii, or even a local bed and breakfast. Take a cruise and enjoy moonlit walks on deck. Sometimes taking a vacation together conflicts with work schedules or can be too costly. If so, find other ways to spend some time alone together.

A wedding anniversary is a great time to plan a romantic getaway just for two. Children can spend a weekend with friends, grandparents, or a sitter so that the couple can enjoy their time together without worrying about where the kids are and what they are doing. If travel is not an option for an anniversary, simply spending the weekend alone without kids can be relaxing and bring couples closer together.

Celebrate Valentine's Day each year. This doesn't mean expensive gifts, flowers, or chocolate, a card and a candlelight dinner at home can let your spouse know just how much you care.

Plan a Date

Go out on a date together. Yes, a date! Go to a movie, dancing, or dinner, just get out of the house and enjoy each others company. This is an excellent way to forget about all the problems of everyday life, at least for a short while.

Never let your schedules get too busy for sex, because intimacy is important in any relationship. One idea that successfully works for many couples is to have a certain night of the week set aside for love making. It may not sound very romantic, yet you would be surprised at just how much this strategy can improve your love life.

Tell your mate that you love them every chance you get. "I Love You", three small words with a world of meaning. Time is precious, life is short, be sure to let loved ones know how much they mean to you every chance you get!

Say "I love you" daily. No matter how hectic your lives may seem, you are never too busy to tell your mate how much you love them. A kiss on the cheek, saying "I love you", and gazing into each other's eyes are some simple ways to help keep your romance alive.
