3 ways to get back that spark in your relationship
- Missing that spark from your relationship?
- Here's what you need to do
And, yet, that seems like a distant dream when you look at your significant other. Looking for a revive that spark? Well, here's what you need to do.
Schedule Dates: It’s easy to slip into nostalgia mood, and remember the thrill of the early stages of a relationship. But instead of the bygone days, then make an effort to set aside a day to do some kind of activity together.
It could be as simple as taking the dog out for a walk together or going out for a meal to your favourite restaurant. More importantly, make the commitment to restart date night.
Take a break: You know that old chestnut: Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Well, here’s your chance. Opt for a solo holiday or go with your all-girl / all-guy friends. This is not the same as a break-up, either. Else, you’ll be explaining yourself like Ross.
The idea of going on a separate ways, albeit temporarily, is to deviate from the usual humdrum of routine that you’ll have become accustomed to. It also helps you re-evaluate your relationship expectations.
Rediscover touch: Get back to being touchy-feely like when you’ll first started going out. Being tactile is important, and is often underrated. Studies have indicated that people often stop touching their significant others in long-term relationships. It’s not deliberate but it happens because of the familiar and comfort that comes from being in a relationship.
