Relationships can be wonderful and blissful in the beginning; but sometimes, after a few years, the relationship can lose its spark. When this happens, it comes to a standstill and neither of you know how to overcome this roadblock. You may even begin to forget why you fell in love in the first place or what attracted you to the person. There may not even be anything apparently wrong with the relationship. Maybe it just reached a plateau where you and your partner are just going through the motions. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being “comfortable” in the relationship, but the “comfortable” aspect of the relationship isn’t what brought you two together. You can’t forget the spontaneity that initially set those butterflies in motion.
So of course, when trying to revamp your relationship, the thing to do is bring back that spontaneity. Do you remember what really made him laugh or what gave her that sparkle in her eyes when you first started dating? How long has it been since you’ve seen that laughter or that sparkle? If it’s been too long, then it’s time to get back to the basics.
Instead of the usual night cuddled up watching TV with each other, try a night out at the movies. See something that will make you laugh or start up a good conversation. When couples get too comfortable, the first thing to go in the relationship is the communication. So in trying something new, you can develop a new topic of conversation. It’ll be fun for the two of you to do something out of the ordinary, whether that is a movie, dinner, or simply staring at the stars.
You might not even have to do something new; the key to revamping your relationship may be to try something old. It’s important to remember the magical moments that started the relationship, so re-doing your first date might be a good way to bring back the romance and cherish the old memories. Going back to where you first kissed, wearing a familiar scent, or even recreating that first date could trigger memories and emotions that make you fall even deeper in love.
Maintaining the romance in the relationship amongst the everyday things of life will help keep you both satisfied. You don’t want you or your significant other to be left with thoughts of what used to be or what could be. You will begin to look outside the relationship to fill the void and this will inevitably cause you to grow apart. Just be sure to stop the problem before it even starts. The best thing for a good relationship is to make it a great relationship by keeping it fresh.
