I have been married for about a year and a half to an AMAZING man, and we are consistently working to maintain the same spark that we had when we first met. When you are in a relationship, the beginning phase is always the most intense for most people, because there is nothing more exciting than the discovery phase of getting to know that special someone. In my marriage, we have been successful in maintaining our spark, and I am going to give you just a few tips on how you can too!
Dress up for outings
Now, I don’t have any problems in the dressing up arena, but some people that I know have become so complacent in their relationships, that they no longer take pride in their appearance or outfits. While I understand the need for comfort from time to time, it is important for you to look good in order to feel good. And trust me, he will also thank you for it!
Go on date nights at least twice monthly
Date nights are good to keep things rolling, and there is always a different air when you are out and about, versus cooking and staying in all of the time. Date nights done the right way will make him want to take you home for more fun.
Book a fabulous hotel room for the night
We all love traveling, and I recommend traveling at least every three months if your budget allows. However, just because you haven’t gone away, doesn’t mean that you can’t have the same spicy “vacay sex”! Booking a swanky hotel room locally can easily spice up any dull sex life.
Make it a point to engage in sex more
This one is self-explanatory. Without an active and consistent sex life…sorry to say….your relationship may be in trouble. Sex provides an emotional bond that is necessary to take your relationship/marriage for the long haul.
Plan at least one night a week away from phones, computers, TV, etc.
Doing this will allow the two of you to decompress and spend the night focusing on each other. In my relationship, this day is most Friday nights, and we look forward to this day every week. Who doesn’t like the attention on themselves!
