If the last twelve months has put a bit of a strain on your relationship, then fear not. There are plenty of simple secrets to completely reigniting your relationship when you feel like the fire might have gone out for good.
1. Remind Yourselves Why You Fell In Love
It might be a decade ago, it might be just a few months ago, but think back to that first time you both said “I love you” and reminisce about what it was that brought the two of you together in the first place. Reconnecting in such a way will really help to reignite your relationship and remind you what it is you have always loved about the other person. This can be a really fun exercise and you could even make it into a bit of a game.
2. Plan Regular Date Nights
Having scheduled days of the week for date nights is key to keeping that spark alive in any relationship. If you both work full-time, then this is especially important as the time you do get to share should be spent doing something fun and in each other’s company. Set at least one day aside every week where the two of you cook together and share a bottle of wine, or head out to the cinema to watch the newest blockbuster movie. Whatever you choose to do, just make sure you are spending quality time together and doing something you both enjoy. Consistently doing this is what will reignite your relationship.
3. Spark Up Your Sex Life
If you are both suffering from a bit of a drought in the bedroom but struggling to bring yourselves to talk about then stop tiptoeing around the issue and tackle it head-on. A healthy, happy relationship involves lots of great, regular sex and so if you and your partner haven’t been under the sheets together in a while, then you need to address things.
There could be a whole multitude of reasons why things have dried up. If you think a personal hygiene issue such as the fishy odour caused by bacterial vaginosis could be the issue then BV treatment could be the answer. Alternatively, things may have just got a little stale, and it might be time to introduce sex toys to spark up your sex life.
4. Consider Counselling
If all else fails, then it might be wise to consider relationship counselling for you and your partner. There is a lot of undeserved shame attached to seeing a counsellor to resolve your marital or relationship issues, but the secret is that more couples do this than you might have thought. Counselling can help you open up about your issues in a safe place and having a third party there will enable you and your partner to sensibly work through issues together.
Hopefully, these simple secrets help to get your relationship right back on track. Remember, a successful relationship is built on trust and communication – these are key.
