A long relationship requires work, but it's worth it. No matter how much you love now, you can not only preserve this feeling, but also strengthen it. Isn’t this what every couple wants to experience? Regardless of whether you have been together for a year or decades, you always need to grow and develop together.
But how to keep love and feel it much sharper?
Try something new together
Doing the same day after day can not only get annoying, but also take your feelings to the background. But if you are doing something new together, then your body produces endorphin and serotonin hormones for good health, which are necessary for strong love. When you try something “new” together, you create a new connection with each other, which no one except you can guess. This method helps to warm up the interest to each other and create joint memories.
Learn your partner's love language
In order to fall in love again each time, you must learn the partner's love language and then speak it at least once a day. It can be small gifts that say the way you like it: homemade dinner, romantic surprises or tender words. Or using affirmations to show him why they are so important to you. These will not be just words, but something that will sink into the soul and will never be forgotten, and therefore feelings will not cool down and wallow in life.
Yes, you and so together, but look, do you really together? Even when you are side by side with your partner, it’s easy to distract from him when you are in a noisy restaurant or watching TV. And distraction is the killer of love. Therefore, many psychologists recommend planning time in your schedule, when you can focus exclusively on each other. It’s like getting to know and getting to know each other again, but you’ll have to find out throughout life.
Share your partner's interests
Even if rock is not your favorite musical style, and you expect the upcoming concert of a rock band with horror, then it is worth making concessions. If your spouse can listen to them for hours, it's time to buy a couple of tickets. Joint participation in his hobby will allow you to see your partner from a different angle. And he will be pleased that you show interest in his hobbies.
Dilute your sex life
Like other parts of a relationship, sex can also go into the background because of busy work schedules, noisy social life, or simply exhaustion. But having shown imagination, you will be able not only to take a break from hard days, to unload yourself mentally, but also to get great pleasure from your half. This may include the use of candles, body oils, or a couple of new poses. Be creative, and in return, your passion will flare up to the limit.
Surprise and delight each other for no apparent reason.
When you first started dating, it was not a big problem for you to leave your partner a love note or surprise him with her small gift. But over time, this habit of romance has faded into the background. Bring home dinner from your favorite restaurant, leave a love note on your bedside table before you leave, re-create your first date and more. These little things will mean so much and play an important role throughout life.
Laugh together often
How important is it to share a giggle with your partner? Laughter is more important in relationships than sex. That is why this simple occupation can increase your love: this is a general state of joy, from which any relationship can get better. Laughter also provides protection from anger and resentment - relationship killers.
