How To Keep Your Relationship Fresh!

Image

There are no two ways about it, sometimes relationships are tough. Sometimes, even those of us in the most blissful domestic situations view the single life with a mixture of envy and wistfulness. Sometimes, you just want to be alone, or start new, or even commit bloody murder. If, however, you’re actually reasonably happy with your loved one, it’s usually easier to try and revive things than break up with your lover! Here are some ways to go about it.

Image

Tell your girlfriend to block off a few hours one day this week, then take her on a secret picnic.

Image

Bake together and then pull what we in the business call “a Violet Blue” — meaning your lover feeds you and you’re not allowed to use your hands.

Image

Write lists of reasons why you think your boyfriend is hot/a genius/the best ever, and leave them in secret places.

Image

Communicate!

Image

Go camping at the beach and tell each other ghost stories

Image

Resist the urge to ‘win’ every argument. (There is no such thing.)

Image

Be vocal about your adoration.

Image

Hold hands when you’re sleeping.

Image

Make up ridiculous names for one another.

Image

Do new things together. Go to the orchestra, the opera, the ballet, little dive bars in Chinatown, the casino, the state fair, art galleries, libraries, vintage clothing stores. Dress up and do it properly, make it an occasion.

Image

Sit in cafes, drink coffee or hot chocolate, and talk. No cellphones, no newspapers, no paperbacks. Just the two of you.

Image

Cook a big meal together once a week

Image

Spend time underneath blankets.

Image

Make sandcastles at the beach.

Image

Keep photobooth pictures of the two of you in your wallet.

Image

Kiss!
