Keep The Love Alive After Valentine’s Day Is Over
Valentine’s Day is a major day for planned displays of romance and affection. Even if you believe that it is a commercially created holiday, many couples look forward to showing their love with gifts, dates and romance. However, a major concern is keeping that romantic atmosphere once the day is over and there isn’t another romantic holiday on the horizon.
Communicate regularly – Take time out of everyday to call and say “I love you” or something sweet to your partner. This reminds them that they are still a priority in your life. If there are any arguments, don’t let it fester but talk it out. This keeps all the avenues of communication open, and builds trust and emotional bonds that will keep you in love with your partner.
Be spontaneous – Plan special dates and times together but every once in a while do something unplanned and spontaneous to keep the excitement in the relationship. You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to bring her favourite flowers, make him a special dinner or go for a drive or walk together. This keeps anticipation high for acts of love even though there are no romantic holidays or birthdays coming up.
Be affectionate – A hug, a kiss and holding hands while walking together are all ways to show love that are small but priceless and endearing. Give your loved ones unexpected compliments, hold her while watching a movie or game, massage his feet after a long day; be affectionate to help maintain the romantic spirit.
Set aside time to be with each other – Sometimes a major reason the romance dies in a relationship is the lack of time spent together. You need to spend time as a couple getting to know each other and basically doing the above three tips to keep the relationship on course. Maintain the contact that is essential for a healthy relationship by planning a date night, a hangout on the weekend or an activity that both of you can enjoy together.
