Dating/Relationship Advice "Five Tips to keep the Romance"
1. Talk to each other. Best friends talk!!! Once the
initial passion dies down, you are left with conversation. If there is
no conversation then the relationship may only be built on the physical,
and thus, not likely to last in the long-term. Find new things to talk
about every day, even if it is just reporting your day to your
loved-one. Talk about current events in the news, the plot of your
favorite movie or just discuss plans for the next time you go out.
Talking is the key to longevity…don't forget it!
2. Give gifts. Sure, you can survive on love alone - but
why? Don't ever forget the importance of gifts! Don't feel like you must
spend a fortune on gift-giving - after all, it's the little things that
count anyway. A single flower, a picture frame, a magazine….any little
thing that reminds you of your lover….will make your sweetheart's love
3. Make Love Well, this is self-explanatory. Believe it or
not, sometimes in a long-term relationship, sex gets put on a back
burner. Try not to let this happen. Talking openly about the subject and
being genuinely affectionate will help keep the fire lit.
4. Flirt. No, not with other people! With each other! Once
people settle into a relationship, it gets easier and easier to forget
to continuously woo the object of your affection. Don't forget the hair
flips, the coy smiles and the light touches on the arm - they can be
integral in keeping the excitement going, especially after many years
and a few kids.
5. Date. Grab your calendars and set a time each week or
each month for an official "date." Plan ahead and alternate who is
responsible for making the plans. If you have a date night, you have
something special to look forward to - and for parents it could be a
much-needed adult night out.
