The Magic Sometimes Ebbs
Some couples find themselves getting into a slump even at the extremely early stage of the relationship.
For other couples it can be years before they feel the magic starting to wear off.
The important thing is recognising this when it starts to happen though.
Just because you and your partner get comfortable and feel relaxed around each other, doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with the relationship or that the relationship is stale though.
It simply means you might want to inject a bit of freshness into the relationship that’s all!
Like anything you’ve had for a while (whether it be an old clock or your relationship!) you need to dust it off every now and again to keep it fresh and for it to survive the test of time.
So here are some great tips for adding the spark back into your relationship, you don’t need to try them all (not all at once, anyway!) but finding one that suits you is a great idea.
You’ll feel that spark back in no time.
Meet up after work
Surprise your other half by meeting them after work and taking them out for a drink.
If you’re used to simply meeting up at home and eating dinner in front of the TV then this is a great way to shake things up.
If you’re driving and don’t want to drink – then take yourself out for a meal instead!
Pick a nice restaurant and spend those 4 hours after work doing something a bit different than usual.
Come to bed naked
If you usually sleep in pyjamas or underwear – why not get into bed naked one night?
Sometimes skin to skin contact is all a couple need to get back their spark.
You’ll be surprised how much passion something as simple as skin can conjure up.
Cook their favourite meal
When you know they’ve had a hard day, cook up their favourite meal (start, main course and dessert) and surprise them with it.
Extra points if you rent out their favourite film to watch afterwards too.
Dedicating yourself to showing them how much you care is something which would make anyone feel loved.
Rent a hotel room for the night
Sometimes all it takes to ignite things again is getting out of your everyday routine and your everyday environment.
Renting a gorgeous hotel room lets you escape away just for the night and will ease off any stress or worries you’ve been having.
Do something silly.
Book a last minute holiday together and jet off unexpectedly.
Go and re-new your vows in Las Vegas.
Take a trip to London and take a spin on the London eye.
Doing things last minute make us feel excited and young again – so don’t be afraid to go crazy!
Hold a games night
Getting competitive with your partner can often make the sparks fly.
Buy a board game like articulate and invite some other friends round to play.
As long as you and your partner are on the same team, you’ll see sparks fly as you try and win against other friends!
Buy them a gift
It can be anything (and could cost 50p or £500).
The price isn’t the point – the point of this gesture is to show them you were thinking of them.
Make it something funny or romantic – the idea is to make them feel special.
