Let’s face it, it can be easy for people to get into a relationship but moving on, they are finding it hard to maintain it. Some are diligent enough to do things that can keep the love alive while the others tend to spend a lot when together with their partners. They dine out often, take a vacation somewhere or buy gifts for each other.
The question is, should you really spend just to maintain a relationship? Experts stressed there are other ways that you can spice up your relationship and they don’t even involve money and spending so much time together.
Communication is vital. This is not only sharing your feelings and views with your partner but also thanking him or her for the support and the efforts he or she has done and continue to do. Being appreciative on a consistent basis is an admirable trait. Saying thank you as often as you can even while in an argument can make a difference.
Routine can cause boredom so break it if you can. A tip is to plan ahead of time on what you’d like to do and be spontaneous about it. If you’re used to dining out at your usual restaurant, find a new one. If you’re the type who is not fond of touching, why not try to do it once in a while by giving your partner a shoulder rub while telling him or her how much you love the person.
When it comes to sex, doing it when you’re in the mood can break the routine. It’s okay to plan a schedule but in cases when the mood strikes, don’t hesitate to give your partner the signs and do it while you’re hot.
Being able to argue properly is another important thing you need to remember. Arguing or getting into conflicts should not be misinterpreted as a sign of incompatibility. But if you know how to handle your differences, you will eventually find that it will strengthen your bond. Just remember to listen and respect your partner’s opinions and beliefs. Most importantly, find a solution to your problem.
Maintaining good hygiene is as crucial. Sometimes, people tend to forget to take an effort to look good for their partner. Just because they’re married, they don’t bother to dress up right and maintain good grooming when in the house. This should not be the case because keeping yourself neat and clean is one way of making your partner want you and maintain that little spark in your relationship.
