No matter how much you love someone, it’s inevitable that the explosive excitement of a new relationship will wane a bit over time. But that doesn’t mean you have to settle for a passionless relationship. By taking action each day, you can make your partnership stronger, hotter and more passionate for years to come.
Everyone knows that effective communication is one of the most important aspects of a healthy relationship. People tend to think communication refers to managing (and avoiding) conflicts, but it’s really so much more.
If you want to keep the fire alive in your romance, the first thing to consider is how you communicate with your partner. Couples with passion communicate their feelings in a thousand different ways: through loving words, affectionate touches, seductive gazes. They show how much they care by doing kind things. They make their attraction known through compliments. They share how much fun they’re having by flirting. By communicating – and hearing – these feelings, you’ll be more in touch with your relationship and more turned on by your partner.
One sure sign your relationship has gone cold? You don’t touch each other. Or worse, you don’t feel anything when you do touch each other.
Even if you and your partner are the best of friends, if you don’t stay connected physically, your passion for each other will surely fade over time. Making matters worse, it’s hard to bring physical fire back if the rest of the relationship has also faded.
To avoid the vicious cycle, make your physical relationship a priority. If your sex drive’s not what it used to be, start with smaller physical steps. Make an effort to be more physically affectionate by offering hugs and kisses, holding hands and giving each other backrubs. At night, don’t just get into bed and roll over to your respective sides – spend a few minutes cuddling before you go to sleep. As time goes by, you’ll feel more and more physically connected and your passion for each other will grow.
Find the fun
In the beginning, relationships are all about having fun. You get to know each other by going out on dates and sharing little adventures together. But as time goes by, couples settle into daily routines of cooking, cleaning and raising kids.
Even if you have domestic responsibilities that keep you from adventuring the way you once did, you can still find the fun that’s so vital to passionate relationships. The trick? You have to create opportunities for fun.
Dates don’t plan themselves, so it’s your job to make them happen. Set aside time each week for a fun, romantic date. Take turns planning the date each week – and be sure to shake up your routine by trying new things. If you’re usually homebodies, go for a hike or hit the beach. If you want to really heat things up, consider a sensual date like a couples massage, a karma sutra class or a seminar on tantric sex.
No matter what tactic you take, if you want to keep a relationship passionate, you have to treat it like a living thing. You can keep your love alive with time, care and attention.
