Unfortunately, real relationships aren’t all about romance as they are in the movies. Of course, while you can’t expect a relationship that mirrors a movie, you still can make sure that you have some romance in your relationship. Sometimes it’s easy to start getting stuck in the day to day life and all the responsibilities that you have to deal with, which allows the romance to fade away. The good news is that you can find some great tips that will help you keep the romance alive. Here are some great tips you can follow that will keep that romance burning.
Tip #1 – Eliminate Grunge Wear From Your Life
One of the first tips to follow if you want to keep the romance alive is to eliminate grunge wear from your life. Sure, those old sweats are comfortable but they do nothing to create a spark in your relationship. After couples are together for some time, it’s easy to fall into a rut, which includes the clothes you wear. Instead of dressing up and wearing something sexy, it’s easier to fall in front of the television in your grunge clothes. Simply eliminate this grunge wear and start wearing something sexy to start a fire in your relationship.
Tip #2 – Develop a Secret Code of Your Own
Another important tip that will help you to keep the romance alive is to develop a secret code of your own. Come up with something that is special to you two. Maybe come up with an acronym that means something special to the two of you when you use. Another idea is to come up with a word that comes up in conversations and when you hear the word, you have to give a kiss, or another type of touch. It’s fun to have something that is just between the two of you.
Tip #3 – Enjoy a Special Dinner Together
Many times dinners become another rushed time to get through the meal and get on to other things that need done. Instead of just going through the motions and devouring dinner in front of the television, take some time to enjoy a special dinner together from time to time. Use some nice dishes, set nice place settings at the table, and use some candles to set a romantic mood. Turning on some romantic music can help to set the mood as well. Even if you are eating takeout, setting the right mood sets the tone for a romantic night.
Tip #4 – Make Time for Dates
You’ll find that making time for dates with each other is another great way that you can both work to keep the romance alive. When you first started dating you probably looked forward to those exciting dates. Come up with some date ideas you both want to try out and then make some time to go out on those dates. Whether it’s once a week or just once a month, those date nights will go a long way towards helping you rekindle the romance.
Tip #5 – Do Something Unexpected
Last, doing something unexpected can definitely help you to keep the romance burning. Do something for your partner that they won’t expect from you. Send a flirty text while they are at work. Leave a note for your partner in their car or lunch. Send an email that will surprise them. Just doing something that is unexpected can make a big difference.
