Make your long-term relationship more romantic
We all want a relationship like in the romantic movies, every day to be filled with tenderness, romantic gestures and warm words. But the reality is very different, at least for most couples.
At the beginning most of the men and women gladly keep the relationship exciting, but over time that enthusiasm fades, and also the creativity of romantic gestures fades too.
To have a romantic relationship in which you will enjoy, you do not need much. You only need to want to make little gestures, because little things can ignite the passion like never before. Here are a few ideas with which help you will save the romance and closeness with your partner:
Celebrate your love every month:
Do not wait for your anniversary to come so you can celebrate your love. Celebrate it ‘monthly’, each month on the date on which you began the relationship. On that day go on a date, or make the dinner more special with candles and a glass of wine. Let this be your little ritual that you will never skip.
Want to try a new recipe? Call your partner to help and try to prepare something special. No matter if you fail to make a good meal, it is important to have fun.
Stay in the dark:
Turn off the TV, PC and all of the lights and light only a few small candles (enough for you to see where you are going). In the darkness start to talk about your relationship. Each one of you need to say things that the other likes. Soon, the conversation can become intimate, and can inflame your passion. In the dark you can concentrate more on your senses of touch and hearing.
Create your romantic playlist:
Make a playlist of all the songs that mean something to you (the song that was in the background when you first kissed, when you made love for the first time…) and add songs that wake up your strong emotions. Every weekend until dinner play those songs. If any of them start to bother you, replace them with new. The music evokes memories and increases the intensity of emotions. Whenever you listen to those songs you will want to fall into a passionate embrace.
Make a lottery of places where you want to go:
Write on a small papers all the places in your city that you wish to go out and put them in a bowl. Every weekend, first get dressed and then get a paper. Getting out will be interesting, and there will be a diversion so you will not be stuck going out to the same restaurant or cafe.
Make unexpected gift:
The little gifts given for no reason are often most interesting because they always hide an element of surprise. Buy him a small gift and give it to him when he least expects it. Be sure that he would like to thank than you in a more romantic way than yours.
Make a collage of photos:
Nowadays all the pictures are stored on a computer, but even though this is more convenient, printed photos are always more interesting. Print 20 photos that immortalized significant moments of your relationship (the first anniversary, the first trip together…) and make a collage.
Small things are very important for the long relationships. When you meet the love of your life, you will never feel like something is missing.
