7 Ways to Keep Your Relationship Juicy This Season

So you found someone you love and who loves you back. Fantastic! Hopefully, you like them enough to want to keep them around for a long time. Unfortunately, it can sometimes be a little too easy to fall into a rut and to even mistake it for routine.

Luckily, there are plenty of things you can do to show your love, keep the romance alive and make you feel special. If you’re looking for a few meaningful ways that don’t require a money, you may find these creative ideas helpful this season:

1. Discuss your fantasies

Show your partner you trust them by sharing your romantic and sexual fantasies with them, and let them do the same. Unless you’re furry, they’re probably not going to get freaked out. It’s important to keep your sex life active and not let it get stale.

2. Don’t let the romance die

Getting comfortable with one another is fine, just don’t let the romance die off completely. You may not always be able to maintain the same butterflies you experienced on your first date, but you can sure as hell try to make your partner feel loved and special every day.

3. Put the devices down

This is particularly important if you’re out having dinner or doing a specific activity together. Not being able to get through a single evening without being glued to your iPhone not only kills the romance, it’s also quite insulting.

4. Engage in activities they like

Make the effort to at least try and appreciate some of the things they love, even if you’re not the biggest fan. It will show that you’re taking an interest, and sometimes you may even be pleasantly surprised. For example, I watch a whole lot more NBA than I ever expected to, but I’ve found myself actually liking it now. I’m not advocating that you should change who you are for someone, but trying new things isn’t bad.

5. Celebrate

Unless you partner is adverse to this, properly celebrate things like your anniversary. Again, maybe the urge to do this will diminish over time, but try igniting that flame again. If this person is the love of your life, shouldn’t you want to celebrate and make a big deal out of your relationship milestones? You can do this in any way that suits you both, the important thing is to show that other person how much having them in your life means to you.

6. Do some chores

This may not sound particularly romantic, but saving your significant other from doing some of the domestic jobs they hate is damned sexy.

3. Cook their favorite meal

Food holds more power than people may think. Sure, we have to eat it to live, but it also has the ability to bring people together. Why else would most major holidays and festivities have a large food-related element? Nothing is better than coming home after a long day and finding someone has not only already taken care of dinner, but that the meal is one of your favorites.
