Let’s get started…
Tip 1: Get Physical
Grab your partner’s butt or rub on their lower back. There’s absolutely nothing morally wrong with showing them some affection. This simple act of touching will remind your significant other just how hot they are.
Tip 2: Kiss Each Morning
A passionate kiss in the morning is the equivalent to having your romantic breakfast. What better way to start the day off than with love. It will positively affect your entire day.
Tip 3: Greet Each Other With A Good Morning
Acknowledgement of each other daily shows how much you care and that you both are grateful for another day on earth.
Tip 4: Make Time To Cuddle
Physical closeness goes a long way to keeping warmth, excitement and love you’re your relationship. So, hug up and watch a great movie together.
Tip 5: Don’t Isolate Yourselves
Make it mandatory to get out at least once a week together with family or friends. Life is short, so do the best you can to go out and live a little. We know that most of us have more tasks to do than we have time to get them done in.
Tip 6: Practice Listening Skills
Couples need to listen to each other as well as be able to communicate effectively. Listening is the one skill that must be practiced, because we’re all so distracted in this day and age.
Tip 7: Share The Household Chores
Sharing chores can keep your relationship on equal footing, because no one in the relationship will feel resentment due to having to do all of the work. As a matter of fact, sharing the housework could create a stronger bond and bring you closer to your significant other.
Tip 8: Be Honest
You should be honest with each other even when it’s not easy. This should be a no-brainer but being honest for some folks are more difficult than you may think. Honesty builds lifetime trust.
Tip 9: Respect Each Other’s Private Space
This is particularly important when you live together. Each of you should have a place to retreat to for a little while to have time to yourselves. Everyone needs some downtime where they spend it alone to reflect and relax.
Tip 10: Say THE MAGIC WORDS
Telling your partner “thank you” and asking “please” shows them how much they’re appreciated. It also prevents you from taking them for granted.
Tip 11: Play The Decision Game
When neither of you can decide which restaurant, you want to eat at or what movie you want to see, one of you can name off 5 choices. The other partner vetoes 2 of these. The first partner then eliminates the last 2. Now you have your decision.
