Keeping the romance alive.
For some this can be hard, but I'm here to tell you it doesn't have to be. As a couple don't be afraid to commit to some change. You can change some of the things you are doing. Try some new things that will put some spice into your relationship. If you can't find any motivation in your relationship; look back to all the reasons you and your partner came together in the first place.
As we grow older we transform and aren't exactly what we used to be. Sit down with one another and discuss your current needs. There is nothing stronger than good communication in a relationship. Having a date night once a week can establish who you two have become as a couple and also individually after the years.
While talking about intimacy people tend to move their minds to the bedroom. Now intimacy in the bedroom being kept alive is just as important as outside the bedroom. You two can try new things like some role-play. Maybe setting the mood different with some candles, different fragrances, and even some new lingerie. You can bring foods into the bedroom to spice it up a little. Also, try some different positions and new technique. Figure out what your partner likes and apply it.
Let's move on to some of the romantic gestures. I know that most people see gestures as something for holidays, dates, birthdays, anniversaries and so on. Well you could get them only on these occasions, but sometimes your partner likes to feel appreciated. Do it on a regular Tuesday to let your partner know I was thinking of you. Now it doesn't always have to be a high end gesture. While going to the grocery store getting your other half something they really like to eat even though they didn't ask for it can make a difference. The little things matter much more than the bigger ones.
Letting go of past hurt. You can sit down with your partner and talk to them about the hurt they have caused you in the past. Now do so without blaming your partner. Sometimes people unintentionally hurt you. If you don't express why and how they have hurt you, then they won't know not to do it again. This is another reason why communication is an important part of a relationship.
If you have anything to add that I didn't put in here. I'd love to hear of them. I know I didn't touch base with everything, but these are some ways to keep your magic going.
