How do you cultivate love and keep that spark alive? You nurture and feed it with kindness and adventure. If you are in a long-term relationship or want to be in one, keeping the excitement and mystery alive is key! So how do you do that? You keep learning and growing as an individual. That keeps you interesting to your partner. It’s easy for any of us to become stagnant and fall into our routines. When you recognize that take action – don’t wait. If you’re bored in your relationship what can you do to change it?
Here are a few tips:
1. Talk to your partner about how you are feeling and engage him/her – brainstorm new ideas and activities that will keep you both interested and you will enjoy. Find an interest that you both like to share that experience together. Maybe it’s photography or improv! Be willing to move out of your comfort zone.
2. Don’t blame your partner for not doing enough or not spending enough time with you. It’s ok to talk about it and come up with engaging or thrilling solutions. Is it time for a weekend getaway, or go to a concert? Make it something special you haven’t done in a while or even something brand new.
3. Commit to a monthly date night and build to a weekly date night.
Love matures with time but you don’t want the spark to go out and to do that it needs to be cultivated. Keep the flame alive, burning bigger and brighter and hotter and hotter!
