Six ways to keep the fire burning in your relationship

In a relationship, it is almost guaranteed that the enthusiasm will fade off especially if you lead a ‘normal’ relationship. But don’t worry, there are a few things, actually six things,  you can do to keep the excitement in your relationship long

Friendship first

Before you become lovers, cultivate friendship. This way, it is easier to express yourself. Being free with your soul mate creates a firm bond and as they say, a strong foundation results in a strong building, in this case relationship.

Acknowledge it won’t be a smooth ride

Ups and downs are definitely part of relationships. Understanding and accepting this fact does a great deal because you are able to come up with ways of dealing with fluctuations when they kick in. With this, both of you are able to grow in your relationship when you correct and learn from each other. William Shakespeare said expectation is the root of all heartache. Don’t expect that it’s going to be all perfect instead learn to live with the flaws.

Novelty is key

Paulo Coelho said routine is lethal. Doing the same thing over and over is boring and more harm is that it makes the other party want to explore. If you’re bored, the obvious reaction is to look for excitement. In matters relationships, one may end up finding an alternative spouse. Be creative, come up with new and refreshing ways to enjoy each other’s company.

Allow for ‘lit bulb’ moments

You know when a random idea comes to your mind and you let it pass? That is an ideal idea to make happen. Be spontaneous with your partner, it makes the relationship exciting, especially when it comes as a surprise.

Don’t just tell, show!

‘I love you’ may be very easy to say but it does a great deal if you show your spouse you love them. It is possible to say something you don’t necessarily mean, therefore, go the extra mile.

Vacation

Well, you don’t have to travel to achieve this, but if you can, the better. Spend time just the two of you, outside your normal environment, enjoy each other’s company, rediscover and most importantly, have fun.
