Romance is not something you can simply buy or borrow. It is a state of mind and soul. But if you put some effort in getting to know what your partner likes, it will pay off!
Listen and try to understand
Whenever possible – listen. Ask questions if you do not understand, share your own experience about this or similar problems and stories see what is really important in your partner’s experience. This is very nice way to show affection and you will really become more intimate with your partner.
Find time for intimacy.
Couples who find time for some intimacy once a week report much more satisfaction in their relationship, a recent study shows. Couples who have sex less than once a week report less satisfaction with their relationship. We are not sure if having more sex makes partners happier or vice versa.
Reflect on your relationship
Formal or informal check-ins could strengthen the bond between two of you. Weekly meetings—one to talk about household responsibilities and another dedicated to more intimate issues—may help both partners experience a strong bond with more comfort and respect.
Turn of devices
You know that Steve Jobs did not allow much technical devices at his home. Why? Too much social networking may have negative impact on a relationship. If you try to minimize time spent on Internet, you will have much more precious moments to share later on Facebook.
Sexting is next thing.
The more you keep communication with your partner, the more intimate moments you create – the more trust and deep feeling you will establish in long-term. Besides, sexting may lead to more passionate moments later, when you are together alone.
Never late to date
Even if you are into a long relationship and you already forgot the scent of red roses, it is never odd to appoint a meeting for a dinner, just the two of you, or even a double date with another nice couple, that you usually have lots of fun with, at a bar and dinner or other nice place you like. After the “official date”, you can create more special moments at home or private place.
Be grateful for what you have
Praise for everything nice in your relationship. Even if it is something simple that seems to be his or her task to do. Show respect and love in everything you do. Even when you argue, keep the positive tone and point out good things that you would like to grow. Never criticize in front of other people, even if you feel they know both of you well enough. Wait until there is only two of you, in private. This way, you show your partner that you value your special relationship.
Create your own romantic story
Believe in your special feelings, try to enrich even more. Share what your needs are and do not be afraid to ask for what you really want. Try to see and add fun, joy and romance in your everyday life. Even when I wash dishes, I turn on nice music and wear clothes that are comfy, yet make me feel sexy and happy.
