Life is full
of change, have you noticed that?
great becomes old, stale. Routine. Boring
When your goal
is to keep love alive, you need to keep situations from becoming boring,
predictable, drab and, dare I say it? "lifeless". Keep your couple's life
interesting in ways that you have control over positive changes and how your relationship
grows and matures.
accomplished easier that you think, with some effort and changes to your
simple steps to keep love blooming in your relationship:
Communicate with your partner
The biggest hurdle of any couple is being
able to talk about everyday happenings and keep conversations
interesting and alive. Talking is your first step in keeping your
partner happy and in love with you.
to your partner
If you aren't listening to your partner as you are
talking, you've lost out on the value of your relationship. You'' lose
the intimacy that you once had because you are putting yourself ahead of
their need to be heard and understood.
of small surprises just to say you love them
Love notes on the fridge, in the lunchbox,
stuffed inside pant and jacket pockets are a great way to say "I love
you". And these spontaneous messages will be treasured and remembered.
When's the last time you emailed your partner an email that said how
much you love them or bought a romantic greeting card 'just because it
reminded you of them?'
time to share with your partner
Time is the one constant that we can
never get back. A moment lost is a moment gone forever. Be sure to set
aside some time everyday just for the two of you, even if it's at the
end of a very busy day. Being able to talk, share and cuddle should be
part of your daily routine and when you make the effort of sharing even
the fleeting moments you can get in each other's arms, your love life
will never suffer.
future with your partner
Just because you're together doesn't mean that
you're both traveling the same path. When you have the same goals in
life, whether it's creating and maintaining a family, travel, or
furthering your careers, it's important that the both of you know which
path you are on and can understand why the life path you've both
selected is important to each other. Respect for achievements, future
plans and the combinations that the both of you create in a shared life
is something to celebrate every day.
