Keep the fun and play, remain active together. Have new adventures often. You’re not old yet, stop acting like it!

Make sure your partner knows how much you value them every single day. Don’t be ashamed if you didn’t get it right the first or second time around. This next relationship could be the last, so make the most of it. Give yourself completely to your partner and have the most authentic and loving connection of your life with them.
