1. Get out of the routine
Invent new plans to avoid falling into monotony. From a break or a trip to a change in the routine of the week. You can spend a night chatting after dinner or watch a movie at home or at the cinema, try new recipes, cook together … And do not forget to have a detail with your partner from time to time.
2. Listen to the other
Sometimes when our partner tells us a problem we tend to give solutions right away. It is good to listen to what is worrying the other and let it vent. Ask how it makes you feel that it is a problem and show your support and understanding .
3. Be interested in your personal projects
Your projects are important to him / her and therefore will influence the relationship. Ask him if he needs help, if you can do something or just find out about it so he can talk about that project with him / her.
4. Boost your sex life
It is perfectly normal that the sexual attraction for the couple decays with the passage of time and the routine is implanted in your lives. However, there are many ways to reawaken sexual interest in your partner. In this sense, erotic products and toys can be a great help to rekindle the flame of passion.
5. Tell him what you feel
At the beginning of relationships everything is “I love you”, “I love you”, “I love this about you” … And then we rarely say anything. Over time we forget to remind them because we think they already know it and it is not necessary. And yes, it is. It is something that we like to hear and that also makes us feel good and gives us security in the relationship.
But it’s not just about saying it, the most important thing is to prove it !
6. Share hobbies
Each one will have their own tastes, as is logical, but surely something in common you have to do together . It is also interesting to accompany the other from time to time to do what he likes. Something, it does not have to be everything, that the space of each one is also necessary.
7. Think before you speak
In the arguments of couple (and in many others) we make the mistake of saying everything that goes through our heads when we are angry and that usually hurts the other . It is normal to lose your nerves but beware of disrespect because they accumulate and then it is too late to solve all the damage caused . The relationship is suffering and we begin to see the other as the enemy.
If you are one of those people who have sudden reactions in times of stress, it is best to stop talking for a while and resume the conversation once calm.
8. Ask for forgiveness and forgive
Do not take for granted that your partner knows that he has been inadvertently or that you have been wrong. Say it and apologize .
Admitting mistakes and apologizing is not easy, so do not crush your partner when he / she apologizes.
And the most important thing: if you forgive, definitely do it . Do not bring up past mistakes in future discussions.
9. Work as a team
In the day to day there are always things to do, individual responsibilities (work) and shared responsibilities . If you live together, the responsibilities of the home are of both. You can distribute tasks or do them together. The distribution should not be equal, but equitable . If one of the two spends more time working outside, the other can do more things at home. You are a team .
Hundreds of times I have heard people talk about helping their partner in housework. This is incorrect . It is not about helping the other, but about working the two for the common good.
10. Respect your opinions
Respect the opinions of the other when you do not share them. Remember that you are a team but not the same person. Each of you is unique and therefore it is very difficult to agree on everything.
