Falling in love is like having a new toy with lots of secret compartments to discover. It's exciting and it's something you're entirely passionate about.
But over time, the initial passion and spark of an early relationship can sometimes dampen. This may be due to much familiarity.
But what can you do to halt the steady decline in a relationship, put the spark back into it and fall in love again?
Here are ways to rekindle the passion in your relationship.
1. Let go of resentment:
Burning issues and resentment are a sure fire way to kill passion in a relationship. Work out your own feelings first and whether they are justified and then speak with your partner to get things ironed out.
Speak to your partner to check that they aren’t harbouring any grudges. If they are, get them sorted too.
2. Work on yourself:
Think about when you first started dating and you cleaned up before your partner came over. Why? Because they were important to you and you wanted to impress them.
Your partner still wants to feel important to you. Put in that extra effort to impress your partner.
3. Flirt with each other:
Flirting is as much an important part of a relationship years in as it was when you first met. Maybe even more.
A little mutual flirtation can go a long way toward improving your marriage – replacing grumpy resentment and the day-to-day grind of family life with playfulness and lightness.
4. Try something new together:
A lot of the time, relationships lose their spark simply because you and your partner fall into the same old pattern and routine.
A great way to introduce some excitement into a stale/comfortable relationship is to try something new together.
Finding a new activity, tv show, or hobby that you both enjoy can help you budget in some quality time together. Getting too comfortable can make you take your partner for granted.
5. Make small gestures of appreciation:
Small gestures can go a long way. If you feel the spark in your relationship is lessening, consider doing some of the following:
• Surprise outings, like dinner dates, concert trips, and going to museums
• Buy gifts for your partner
• Do the dishes or laundry. Take out the trash. Cook them dinner.
6. Remember what it was like when you first met.
Turn off the TV and reminisce about the fun times you had when you first met. You can talk about your intimate life, dreams, and plans you both had together then.
