Are you frustrated that your relationship doesn’t
have the magic and romance that it once had? Scared
this may affect or eventually end your relationship?
You’re not alone. Living with the same partner for
a long time can become stable and comfortable, and,
as a result, can make things stale and lose the
spark that made your relationship so special in the
first place. Here are some simple, fun and creative
ideas to reignite that magic:
1. Send her a unique gift at work. Get a piece of
paper and some crayons. Draw a bright childlike
picture with a smiley sun and two stick figures
holding hands. Add labels with your two names
pointing to the stick figures. Write ‘I Love You’
inside a heart. Next get a large formal envelope.
Place your drawing inside and type up a formal
address label of your partner's workplace, such as:
“For the immediate and urgent attention of:
Rebecca Jones, Level 20, Collins & Smith
Solicitors, New York.” Mail it to your partner so
they receive it in the middle of a busy day.
2. Fun with water. On a hot summer’s day, buy two
large water pistols and take them to the beach with
you. Pull them out and throw one to your girlfriend
and then have a huge water fight.
3. Bring back childhood memories. Contact your
partner's family and ask if there was anything she
always wanted when she was a little girl. For
example, if she always wanted a porcelain doll, buy
one for her birthday. She will not only appreciate
the gift, but also the fact that you were
thoughtful enough to find out what she always
4. Become kids again. If you are walking by a park,
visit the swings and give her a ride. Might bring
back happy memories from childhood.
5. Organize a backyard picnic on a warm summer’s
night. Spread a picnic blanket on the ground and
get together some snacks, chocolates and champagne.
Lie down on the blanket with your partner and gaze
up at the stars together.
6. Show you’re grateful for your partner. Leave a
long-stem rose where your partner will find it,
with a note on it saying: "Thank you for coming
into my life."
7. Spice up your lovemaking. Probably the most
profound way to rekindle the romance in your
relationship is to spice up your lovemaking.
Surprise your partner with a little gift after you
make love, try a new position, learn to give your
partner a sensual massage before or after, or just
spend some time staring into each other’s eyes and
caressing their bare skin before making love.
Many people underestimate the power these little
things have on a relationship. If things are rough
in your relationship don’t wait for your
significant other to do something. Take action.
Make the first step towards mending your
partnership. It’s all about passionate love. Show it.
