Falling in love again with your partner every day is critical in a long term relationship. But how do you do that? You need to reignite the spark in your love life with these 12 exciting ways to fall in love again. Remember when you and your partner first fell for each other? Do you remember the excitement you felt with just the thought of each other, thehand holding, the passionate kissing, and cuddling? Do you remember dating and the attention you paid to every detail, and what about the nights you lay in bed just dreaming about being with your partner? Falling in love is remembering these things. Were you one of those couples that could talk for hours and hours on the phone about nothing and yet everything at the same time?! Those were the days when the two of you couldn’t get enough of each other. You spent every moment you could together, dreaming together, talking about the future, and doing little things (or big things) to make each other feel special and wanted. Oh, the expectation! The excitement! The conversations! Now fast forward a few years, sprinkle in some kids, add two careers, toss in some bills, household duties, possible feelings of under appreciation mixed with misinterpretation, and add a touch of complacency and it’s safe to say that “loving feeling” isn’t so exciting anymore. Friendship is absolutely essential for a successful marriage. Here are 12 ways to establish a positive connection and renew your love with your partner. Do these 12 things and you will be falling in love all over again.
1. Focus on the positive
We all love to hear great things about ourselves. Think of positive qualities about your partner, write them down and post them on sticky notes around the house.
2. Flirting is necessary!
Send flirty text messages to each other throughout the day. This can be a fun way to communicate and build the anticipation on being together.
3. Share your heart in 60 seconds
Falling in love again requires you to take the time for it to happen. Each of you take 60 seconds per day to tell each other all the positive qualities you see in each other.
4. Schedule a date
Dating gives you time to just have fun and enjoy each other. Make itmore exciting by planning date night, but don’t tell your partner whatyou’re doing. This will spark interest and anticipation.
5. Foreplay is a must
Make foreplay a priority. Foreplay starts from the time you wake up in the morning, not just right before sex. Touching, kissing, rubbing, andeven flirting with each other should be a priority in your relationship.
6. Start dreaming again
Falling in love again means to bring back the feelings of security and the excitement of what could be. Talk about your plans and goals with each other.
7. Go for a walk
8. Say Thank you!
These two words can go a long way in showing your partner that youappreciate them for all that they do for you and your family.
9. Pay attention
Power off the phone and television and zero in your attention on your partner. Have a conversation face to face! Ask open ended questions and get to know each other again.
10. Remember the good times
Spend time reminiscing about times you’ve spent together that were fun, exciting, super sexy, or amazing. Look at photographs or videos together.
11. Play with each other
Who said playing was just for children? Be affectionate and play with your partner in public and in private. The more you laugh together, the more you will genuinely like each other, and love being around one another.
12. Take a day trip
Get together with a map of local trails and scenic roads and plan some day trips. Go out and kayak on the river or spend a day at the lake or learn something new together.
