When two individuals fall for each other, during the initial stages, there is a spark and a charm in them and their relationship. But as time passes, that spark somehow; unknowingly fades away and actually affects the relationship in the long run. A point comes wherein there is nothing new left and something new, something more is desired out of it. One of the hardest things that people face over the course of a long-term relationship is that the initial-spark fades away.
A long term relationship doesn’t mean that you’re doomed to watch the spark fade away. You just have to know how to rekindle it.That’s the point when that ‘passion’ needs to be re-ignited. Check out these ways by which you can rekindle your romance and reignite the lost passions of your relationship:
1.Carve out time to spend with your partner on a daily basis
Try a variety of activities that both of you find enjoyable. Have fun courting your partner and flirting with him or her. Don’t forget to cuddle your partner on the couch and surprise your partner with a sudden, short and sweet gesture (such as a kiss).
3. Resolve conflicts skillfully
Don’t put arguments or resentments at bay; that can really harm your relationship in the long run. Experiencing conflict is inevitable and couples who strive to avoid it are at a greater risk of developing stagnant relationships. Try to sort fights out amicably. Don’t let those fights come in your love. Say sorry or just cook something that he or she loves or just give a flower.
4. Increase physical affection
Holding hands, giving a nice hug or a kiss and touching each other actually releases oxytocin, a bonding hormone responsible for reducing stress and causing a calming sensation. Physical affection also reduces stress hormones, what else do you need?
5. Put your sex life on “project status”
Make a decision to recommit to each other and move sex higher on the priority list. Physical intimacy in a relationship deserves a lot of attention. You can start by making small changes. Put your kids aside to bed earlier don’t fall on the couch solo, instead go to the bed at the same time as your partner.
6. Talk to your partner
Speaking your heart out actually gives a sense of relief. Remember to be sensitive when bringing up the subject and pick an appropriate time. Don’t do this in between an argument. If it doesn’t work, urge him or her for a session on couple’s therapy.
7. Keep the mystery alive
No matter how long you have been together, make an effort to be seductive and keep the erotic connection of your relationship fresh. Put some surprise into the relationship as this can help keep desire alive.
8. Stop complaining
Cribbing over small stuff, all over again and again actually makes it irritating to stay with a person. Instead of complaining, appreciate all that you have.
9. Be patient
Try to make things work out for the betterment of the relationship. Good things take time and the rekindling of the romance would surely take some time. Don’t give up all too soon.
It takes two to tango, and you will have to understand that the effort to reignite the passions into a relationship should be made by both of you. If you really want this relationship to continue, then give it your best shot, because at the end, you will get what you totally deserve.
