Who says the honeymoon stage has to end? Whether you’ve been together for two, five, or going on 10 years, you can still spice up and add sizzle to that relationship. Here are seven ways to rekindle the romance and rediscover the spark.
SHOW YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR PARTNER’S INTERESTS
Is there a band he’s been wanting to see? Or is he an aspiring marathoner? Buy him concert tickets or join him on his next race. Paying attention to his hobbies, passions and interests is a simple but meaningful way to show him you care, and that everything about him matters.
LET YOUR THOUGHTFULNESS SHINE THROUGH
The littlest details always count. Did he come home looking worn out? Give him a massage. Is he running low on his candy stash? Replenish his sweets the next time you make a grocery run. There are things you can do and give without your partner demanding them – and that’s what makes your random acts of romance extra special.
UPDATE YOUR LOOK
This doesn’t mean giving yourself a major makeover. Simply take care of yourself and exert extra effort in looking presentable every time he takes you out. Give him more reason to show you off!
Switch things up a bit by slipping on a LRD(Little Red Dress). He’ll be so impressed and smitten that it might just feel like you’re on your first date all over again.
GET MATCHING FRAGRANCES
Scents aren’t only luxurious possessions to own, they are also pleasurable and sensual tools in creating impressions and locking in special memories
You both can get caught up in your individual busy schedules, so take the time out to stop and take a breather. Either soak in a warm bubble bath together, with lit candles and an open bottle of bubbly on the side, or head to the spa for a rejuvenating couples’ massage.
ENJOY A GETAWAY FOR TWO EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE
Sometimes, you need a change of scenery in order to reignite your romance. Take a leave from work, unplug and head to an exciting new city you can explore together. Touring new places, experiencing unique cultures and savouring the tastiest cuisines – without any distractions – are great ways to bond and be reminded of the many reasons you fell in love in the first place.
SPRUCE UP YOUR BEDTIME ENSEMBLE
Ditch the oversized tee and gym shorts and get yourself a set of lacy lingerie. Hello, sexy time!
