When you’ve been with your spouse or significant other for a number of years, it’s easy to let the passion in the relationship fizzle out. But if you’re looking for longevity, it’s essential to work towards increasing your physical connection – which will in turn strengthen the overall bond that you share. Here are some tips to help you do just that.
Lack of time is the age-old excuse for letting romance and sex fall to the wayside. However, considering how essential they are for keeping your relationship alive, they should be right up there on your priority list. Wake up earlier, watch less TV, spend less time surfing the internet, say no to other commitments – whatever you need to do to make time for what’s really important.
Turn it into a project you are working on together
If you were given a project at work, you would put some effort into seeing that it was completed to the best of your ability, right? Your relationship needs the same amount of care and dedication. So make it into something you spend time working on everyday. Brainstorm ways to make it better with your spouse or significant other.
Take care of yourself
Put your best foot forward by bringing the best you to the relationship. Take the time to get out of the sweats and into something that makes you feel sexy. Fix your hair, work out more, eat healthier. All of these things will increase your self confidence which in turn can greatly improve how you interact with your partner.
Ask for what you want
One of the many reasons couples get into a rut in their relationship is because they stop communicating and asking for what they want. They resign themselves to a perceived belief that this is as good as it gets. It’s not – and it’s up to you to let your partner know what you want to be different.
Avoid approaching the conversation in an overly critical way – let your partner know that you both shoulder the blame in the situation. Then figure out how you can work together to make it better.
