Does your relationship feel a little stagnant right now? Don’t worry; it can happen to anyone. In fact, it usually does. Sometimes after a while, you find yourself so comfortable with your significant other that you end up missing out on the old spice and romance that brought you both together in the first place.
If that is the case, then fear not. There are lots of ways that you can put the spark back into the fire of your relationship, from romantic surprises to reinjecting some passion in the bedroom.
Here are some suggestions for how you might be able to spice up your relationship.
Do not estimate the power of touch
Remember when you first got together, and you couldn’t stop touching each other? You’d hold hands at every opportunity, steal kisses whenever the moment allowed and cuddle on the sofa every night. Don’t underestimate how important that enthusiasm about being close to each other was to the health of your relationship. Reintroduce that desire to always be near each other with little touches here and there. By learning to hold hands again, you’ll have a closer physical connection.
Go on a date like no other
When was the last time that you went on a date – an actual, proper date and not a quick cinema trip while a friend or neighbor looked after the kids for a few hours? Plan a romantic date like no other. It could be dinner and cocktails at a rooftop bar with stunning views, an afternoon hike through the woods involving just you two and mother nature or a trip to the theatre to see a sold-out show. Organize a magical day, and that magic will rub off on your relationship.
Wear their favorite cologne
There are many ways in which scent drives human behavior. Smell is often the first sign of danger, friend or foe. It can make us angry, or it can make us fall in love. Presumably, your partner likes the smell of the cologne they wear as they chose it. So, surprise them when they come home from work by wearing it yourself, you’ll smell more attractive to them and who knows where that can lead?
Use your imagination in the bedroom
The bedroom is where you can inject some renewed spice into your love life. Use every ounce of your vivid imagination and talk to each other about your wildest fantasies. You might discover that your partner wants to work through the entire karma sutra, that they’re hot for role play or that they even want to try out a device like a whizzinator. By exploring each other’s deepest desires, you’ll be making your relationship hot again.
Wine, the answer to all life’s problems, right? It can certainly help spice up your relationship. Pop open a bottle of wine, grab two glasses and sit and unwind in front of a cozy fireplace or under a blanket in your back garden while looking up at the stars. Wine can help us relax, get us talking and fall more in love with the person we are with.
