In the early stages of a relationship, butterflies, nerves and excitement are all common – essentially there is a ‘spark’.
However, over time many people find they become increasingly comfortable with their partner and the first flush of romance begins to fade.
While you may have found the person you wish to spend your life with, real life and stress can have an affect on the romance in your relationship.
If you want to bring back the spark in your relationship and keep your connection exciting, read on and follow our simple guide…
Rekindle your friendship
When you are in a long-term relationship, you can fall into the trap of routine. Every day life can quickly take over and you may feel you are not as close as you once were. One of the most important things you can do is keep your friendship alive and put time aside for each other. Going for a long walk, cooking a meal together or spending an evening out just the two of you will help you reconnect with the qualities that made you fall in love in the first place.
Compromise is at the heart of keeping the spark alive in a successful relationship. By listening to your partner’s opinions, doing things they like to do, and taking time to find a solution you’re both happy with, you can find a middle ground.
For a relationship to stay strong and healthy, communication is key. By being open, honest and sharing your thoughts, concerns and feelings with your partner, you can tackle anything together.
If you feel as though your partner is not listening to you and communication is breaking down, it is time to have a calm and collective conversation. Start by speaking to your partner like you would your best friend – this will make it easier to break down barriers, making the conversation relaxed, warm and respectful.
Think before you react
If you and your partner have got into a pattern of arguing, why not try to tackle conflict differently.
Next time you argue, avoid getting caught up in your emotions and take time to process your thoughts first before reacting. By taking this approach, and walking away from the situation you will do a lot less damage. Only when you feel in control, you can explain your opinion in a calm, composed manner. By talking things through, you can come to a solution together rather than shouting and arguing.
