Go To Bed Together
All right I can hear all you guys yelling right now. But studies have shown that couples who go to bed to actually sleep at the same time tend to feel closer and have a healthy relationship. The aim here is to just cuddle for 5 or more minutes in the evening and then when you wake up in the morning. This helps create a very nice intimacy between the two of you.
Keep Going On Date Nights
Most couples will fondly remember their first dates, but what about your 103rd date? Couples once they get into a routine are more often than not just willing to spend every night in the house. Make sure you get out once a week for a date night. Go and see a movie, go for a bite to eat. Do something that the two of you love to do together. It can be so easy to take each other for granted when you have been together for such a long time. And if you have kids then get a sitter once a month or ask a friend or family member to babysit for one night.
Have A Fair Dose Of Sex
No doubt many of you guys will read this section first. But sex is a very important part of any relationship. You should be having sex as often as possible. And try to spice things up a little bit. Maybe instigate some early morning, surprise sex or perhaps you can buy some sexy new cloths. You instigating sex will make your partner feel desirable and that you still want them in a sexual way. Sex should not be the only thing in your relationship, but it is very important.
Pencil In Important Dates In Couple’s Calendar
This one kind of ties into date night, but this makes things more official. Now I am not saying you need to sit there with your iPhones making sure you have each other’s whole lives in there. But make sure you have at least one day per month that is for just you two to spend time together. No matter what else happens in the month this day is your time together. One fun way to make this even more neat. Is to have it so you take turns in coming up with something fun to do, but you do not tell your partner what it is until you are on the way there! This adds a great deal of excitement to your date.
You need to keep each other guessing and one of the best way to do that is by doing little things. This can be things like sending them a surprise love you card through the post. Or maybe getting them a little surprise gift. Even something like making them their favorite meal or ordering their favorite take out as a treat does a great job in keeping them on their toes.
