5 Easy Ways To Put The Spark Back Into Your Relationship

5 Easy Ways To Put The Spark Back Into Your Relationship

As the years pass us by, some couples, married or not, might feel stuck in the same old song and dance. Those butterflies that you'd get every time you saw your significant other have faded. But don’t get discouraged by the lack of fire in your relationship, just bring some of it back! That doesn’t mean that you have to be the wild and crazy kids you might have been years before, but there are still tons of ways to rekindle your relationship flame.

1. Schedule a weekly date night, and plan something that you both enjoying. You don’t even have to leave the house for this fun date. If you are both movie buffs, watch one of your old favorites. Just make sure to pop some popcorn and grab a oversized blanket. If you’d rather go out, make reservations at the new restaurant in town. Even if the night goes completely awry, at least you’ll have something to look back on and laugh about.
2. Make sure to give your significant other a hug or kiss every time you see them. We’re not talking an enormous amount of public affection, but a little peck might be enough to get your heart racing. Many couples pass up this easy opportunity, and settle with a plain old, “hello.” But a bit affection goes a long way, and it might lead to even more!
3. Not only are surprises fun, but they add a little bit of mystery to your relationship. Even if it’s something as simple as buying your man or woman a box of chocolates or tickets to a play, it could be enough to put a smile on his or her face. What’s even better is that the happiness the surprise will incite in your partner will probably bounce back and hit you, and you’ll both be riding high all day.
4. Try something new. Even though rekindling your flame is often about going back to the activities that you used to enjoy together, starting a new hobby together can bring you even closer. See if there are any interesting classes at the community college, or ask friends and family if they have any recommendations.
5. Have some family time. If you have kids, spending some time with the entire family can bring you and your partner closer together. The fact that you have children, no matter their age, demonstrates that you have already bonded in an insurmountable way. Invite your children over, and talk about the great moments that you’ve all had together. If you don’t have children, reminisce with your significant other about your respective childhoods. Emotional conversations have a tendency to rekindle a loving connection.
