Have you and your partner been together a long time? You can keep your passion alive with just a little bit of effort. The team at Hampers 4 Two have come up with a short list of 5 tips to keep the spark in your relationship.
1. Go to bed at the same time
According to relationship experts, sleeping together in the same bed is crucial to your relationship. Go to bed at the same time as each other so you can snuggle—and no, by snuggle we don’t mean sex. Try and find 10 minutes every morning and evening for a cuddle, as physical touch strengthens the connection between couples.
2. Don't stop dating
Remember how you felt on your first date? Somewhere between then and now that initial infatuation turned into long-term commitment the flush of first love faded. But there’s no reason not to keep dating. Scheduling regular date nights is a great way to keep the spark in your relationship.
3. Create a couple's calendar
It’s so easy to get wrapped up in work and family life that finding time to be with your partner gets pushed aside. Don’t take each other for granted. Book time to do things with each other, whether it’s going on a date or just cooking dinner or watching TV together. These days many couples even schedule time for sex. Do whatever you have to but make sure you get some together time.
4. Fight fair
Every couple argues—it’s actually good for your relationship to air your grievances and not keep them bottled up. But how you do it is important. Consider your timing. Don’t launch into an all-out disagreement the minute your partner walks through the door. Similarly, try not to lose your temper and speak to your partner as kindly as you would to a friend or work mate.
5. Recharge your sex life
If your sex life has become routine, it’s about time you spiced it up a little. Initiating sex makes your partner feel attractive and desirable. Why not try something a little different? Give your partner a lap dance to remember or buy one of our hampers and let the fun and games begin!
What's the secret of your relationship? We'd love to hear what you and your partner do to keep your love alive.
