Now that the first flush of romance is over, and you’ve gotten used to each other, it can be easy to become complaisant and forget about passion and love. To keep the romance alive even after a few years, take a look at the below tips so that you can both enjoy a long and happy relationship.
Commit To A Dedicated Date Night
Choosing a specific night on which to have a date every week is widely believed to be the key to a successful relationship, so set aside one night a week when you both spend time doing the things you love and connecting with your partner. It doesn’t have to be an expensive meal out every week; a simple date night at home with your favourite film and a glass of wine is perfectly acceptable as long as you both have fun and spend the time remembering everything you love about each other.
Spice Things Up In The Bedroom
After a few years your sex life can get a little stale, so get things back on track by including sex toys such as dildos, clamps and restraints. There’s something out there for everyone, including lesbians, who can use a Wet For Her double dildo to make their relationship even more intense.
Talk Things Over
Communication can drastically decrease in the later stages of a relationship, so make sure that you regularly take the time to talk together. You might choose to have a quick chat after work every day, or you might prefer to have long, in depth discussions about your feelings on the weekend; whatever you choose, make the communication honest and two-way. Listen to your partner and make them feel loved.
Share The Chores
Women often take on a disproportion number of household tasks such as laundry, childcare and cleaning. To help overcome this issue and ensure that you’re both doing your fair share, map out exactly what tasks need doing around the house, then divide them equally. Create a rota for regular tasks so that you both do equal amounts and don’t come to resent each other.
Remember, Emotional Labor Is Still Work
There is a strong consensus that taking on all of the emotional labor in a relationship affects women negatively and can cause problems in their work, social lives and relationships. To avoid this issue, make sure that you and your partner are supportive of one another and try to divide the emotional labor and caring between you as equally as possible.
Change Things Up
When your relationship is getting a little stale make sure that you change things to get it back on track. This might include bringing in new ideas or positions into your bedroom activities, or something more drastic like going away for a short break to reconnect and relax. Making small changes can help you to keep the spark alive for longer, so consider how you can both make things better for one another and really reconnect.
