“Love… is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.” – Nicholas Sparks, “The Wedding”

Any person who is in a relationship, seeks the secret recipe to keep their love fresh and exciting all the time. Usually, a majority of relationships start with the same – you love the same thing, you never have disagreements, you get excited by the mere thought of them, and you don’t leave a single chance to surprise your partners and make them feel happy.

However, with time, things change and you start realising that everything is not perfect. You crave for personal space, and you don’t want to repeat the same romantic activity every day.

Do things really change? Is there any formula to keep the spark alive in relationships? Am I committed to the right person? Such questions may come to your mind when your relationship experiences a bumpy road. Here are some tips to avoid such situations.

Spend Some Time Alone

This is a simple formula every couple follows. But do you indeed spend time alone? Without your phone? Spending some time alone with your partner, at least once a week, can bring a great difference to your relationship.

However, most couples spoil such precious moments by getting hooked on to their cell phones. Don’t do this – and the next time when you are together, put your phones away and appreciate each other’s company. A disconnection from the outside world will make you connect deeply with each other. Isn’t it? Try once and believe us.

Flowers

Is there any disagreement in life which can’t be solved with flowers? Flowers allow you to convey multiple emotions to your partner without saying a word. You don’t need a reason to bring flowers for each other. Surprise each other with sweet blossoms with a romantic note – and feel the warmth it brings to your relationship. Be it roses or hydrangea, flowers will always put a big smile on your partner’s face.

Appreciate One Another

There must be multiple things in your partner which you appreciate. However, it is important to express verbally what you love about them. Frequently showing your love and appreciation to your partners through words and actions will constantly keep the romance alive in your relationship.

Times Apart

Showing your love and affections to each other and spending time with your partners is perfect. However, you also need to give space to each other. Personal spaces are very important – and in many cases, its lack may give rise to a disagreement between couples. Sometimes, it is perfect to get on a trip or night-out with your boy/girl gang. It gives both of you a chance to miss the other and feel each other’s importance in your lives. The time apart often is a booster in a relationship, which will leave both of you wanting for more.

Spare Time For A Date

Relationships often start with plenty of dates. However, with time, they get less frequent. No matter how busy your schedule is, always make room for a ‘date night’, at least once in a month. During this time, keep your phones away and indulge only in some ‘us-time’. It is too easy to fall into a routine and neglect relationships. People often take relationships for granted and stop working on it. This is the biggest mistake couples often commit. Dating should be an indispensable part of every relationship forever. So, spare time at least once a day, where you revive the fun of dating with your partner.

Every relationship has its ups and downs. The mantra of keeping the flame alive in your relationship lies in working on it and sparing time for each other.
