5 Easy Ways to keep the Romance Alive

Being in a committed relationship has it's perks. For example, avoiding disastrous blind dates and being seated at the "singles" table at your cousin's wedding. But anyone who's been in a relationship that's lasted longer than six months can tell you that it isn't always hugs and kisses. Long term relationships take work and in order to keep the love alive, you've got to put in a little effort sometimes. Here are 5 easy ways to romance your sweetheart:


Ways to keep the romance alive.

1. Flattery Goes a Long Way

It may sound obvious and unnecessary, but ladies and gentlemen, the simplest way to show your counterpart that you care is to tell them. After you've been together for a few years and things become monotonous, it's common for the compliments to sort of fade away. Don't let this happen to your relationship. Ladies, if you notice that your man's looking good and buff, tell him. Gentlemen, it never hurts to remind your better half that she is beautiful and amazing. If you're stuck at the office and all of the sudden you get a naughty craving, text your lover a sexy message. Dishing out complements and dusting off the old flirting skills can help keep the spark in your relationship.

2. Leave Love Notes

Similar to above, something as simple as relaying your love in writing can do wonders for your relationship. Put what you feel down on paper and in your own hand writing. Nothing is more romantic than an old fashioned love letter. Not so good with lengthy writing assignments? That's okay. A love note can be as simple as writing "I love you" in the fogged bathroom mirror or quickly jotting down "have a good day, xoxo" and leaving it on her (or his) car. Something so simple, yet concrete can put a smile on your loved one's face for the rest of the day. 

3. Be Spontaneous

Now guys, don't let the subtitle scare you away. Being spontaneous doesn't mean you have to whisk your lady away on an expensive, surprise getaway to Hawaii (although, if it is, I wouldn't complain). The kind of spontaneous that can melt a girl's heart is more doable. Flowers for no reason will always knock a girl off her feet. Nothing is sweeter than an unexpected gesture of love. When I was a little girl, my dad used to randomly bring home a single slice of lemon meringue pie, my mother's favorite. This goes both ways ladies. Girls, you can unexpectedly cook your man's favorite dish or surprise him after work by waiting for him in a new piece of lingerie. Remember, simple can be romantic. 

4. Keep Courting Each Other

Most couples who live together for a while eventually get on a daily routine. Wake up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, maybe a workout, then bed. It's what naturally happens when you do the same thing everyday. To keep things from getting boring add something romantic to your routine. My boyfriend and I try to do a single date night, if not every week, at least every other week. You need to make time to simply be with each other and have fun. To keep date night interesting, we try to do something different every time. Dinner and movie will get boring after the tenth date night. Use coupon sites like Living Social or Groupon to get more unique date night ideas. If your routine already consists of a date night, add something different like breakfast in bed every Sunday. You can also take a course together, like paddle boarding, a cooking class, a couple's massage class, or even a dance class. Keep your routine feeling fresh.


Date Night: Bowling 

5. Don't Slack on Sex

Sex is a very important element to every relationship. It may not be the only important element, but once sex goes, the passion and romance follows and soon your wondering how your relationship got so boring. Sex with your partner does more than just satisfy, it also keeps you two connected on all levels. There is a reason why you feel disconnected from your partner when you aren't having sex regularly. Life gets busy and you fall into monotony of everyday life. Don't leave sex on the back burner. If you have to, make specific time in your busy schedule for sex. After all, sex not only keeps your relationship healthy, but helps keep the stress of life at bay.
