When you’ve been in a long-term relationship, it’s totally normal if you look up and realize that things have become a little stale. While it’s not ideal, it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Instead of wallowing or developing a high level of guilt, some of the best things you and your partner can do involve keeping a pulse on where your relationship is and maintaining a high level of communication in order to navigate through it. As you navigate through the process of livening up your relationship, consider some of the best tips to get started.
1. Experiment in the Bedroom
When you’re in a romantic relationship, your partner is the one who knows you and fulfills you in a way that no one else can. Knowing this, it’s important to keep things fresh, spicy, and interesting. There are various experiences that can happen that will impact the sex life. Experiences like childbirth, depression, or job loss can impact a person’s ability or desire to have sex.
Once you’re able to get to the root of the issue, consider trying new things. Trying new positions can be both fun and exhilarating. Trying new toys and tools can be interesting as well. A wet personal lubricant can provide new sensations that stimulate all of the senses. If you’re dealing with a situation where dryness or maintaining an erection are problems, there are products that can help you two work through the discomfort in order to find relief and pleasure on the other side.
2. Implement Weekly Date Nights
Throughout the course of any given workweek, it’s possible for couples to only connect as they’re drifting off to sleep. If you’re relying on this time to strengthen the relationship, you’re in for some real trouble. This is one of the main reasons why many couples develop weekly date nights. Date nights aren’t set aside to focus on the household chores, bills, or other issues. Instead, weekly date nights are reserved for couples to really enjoy each other.
Think about how date nights were when you first started dating each other. Date nights were probably filled with flirting, kisses, and lots of physical touch. The conversations were electrified in the early years of dating. When people get used to each other, those conversations tend to be less intriguing or interesting. Instead, find ways to have stimulating conversations during date nights.
Do a quick search to find interesting questions you can ask each other on a date. Because you know so much about your partner, it can become easy to stop asking questions or exploring the person they continually evolve into. By connecting in these ways through date nights, you’ll uncover a new side of your partner that makes you excited to connect for years to come.
Remember that date nights don't need to be extremely expensive either. A simple drive to the local ice cream shop for ice cream cones and a walk in the park can work perfectly. Purchasing the ingredients to make sushi at home can be a wonderful way to create your own dinner and facilitate great conversation.
3. Intentionally Work on Love Languages
If you don’t already know how your partner receives love, take the time to figure it out. You two can sit down together in order to work through the book and the quizzes. Once you’re knowledgeable about each other’s love languages, learn how to meet them where they are. One of the most common mistakes people make is that they try to express love in their own love language. In turn, this does nothing for the partner.
While all expressions of love are amazing, work on speaking your partner’s love language on a daily basis. If your partner loves physical touch, this doesn’t necessarily equate to tons of sex each day. Sometimes, sexual gestures, playful touch, and hugs can be some of the best ways to express love through physical touch (in addition to sex).
There are so many factors to consider when you’re looking to improve your relationship. Life will always present its fair share of hurdles such as a loss in the family, a loss of a job or a debilitating illness.
Even though life will present its own challenges that can impact your relationship, it’s essential for you both to remain connected and committed to one another. When you two are able to maintain a high level of communication and connectedness through these tips, you’ll be on your way to developing the most unbreakable bond.
