When two people start living together as a couple, they gradually get used to each other. Especially men. After all those longed-for dates and endeavors to impress, they can finally relax because they know they are loved for who they are. Partners get so comfortable with each other that they seem more like roommates than lovers. That first-date euphoria wears off and their relationship gets into a dangerous phase of routine and doubts. Is it possible to survive this tricky stage and keep the flame of passion burning? The answer is yes. But both partners should constantly work on their relationship contributing to its development and preventing it from dying out.
Here are some recipes from Russian Brides Dating to help you save that romantic spark of your relationship.
Go out on dates
Don’t just eat out discussing domestic problems but go on real romantic dates and enjoy each other’s company. Choose the venue in advance, preferably those places where you’ve never been before. Dress up for each other. Eat slowly, tasting every single bite. Turn off your phones and be present in the moment. In other words, just have a great time together.
Don’t wait for Christmas or St. Valentine’s Day to present your loved one with a gift. If women regularly get small presents (chocolates, flowers) from their significant others, they feel loved and important. Unexpected gifts are more meaningful and charming. If walking around a store you suddenly spot an item your partner will definitely love, buy it. Don’t save that idea for a special occasion. Spontaneous gifts translate one very important message: “You’re always on my mind and I think about you even if you’re not by my side”.
Take care of your looks
Living together is often fraught with neglecting your appearance. You’ve found your significant other and now you can relax. This is the logic of many couples where partners think that it’s OK to walk in a dirty T-shirt about the house or shave legs/remove nose hair in front of the other partner. Comfort and laxity are two different things and those who don’t see this difference gradually become less attractive to their partners, both emotionally and sexually. That’s why it’s important not to cross that line of “naturalism” even if you feel very comfortable and relaxed.
Admire each other
At the stage of dating, compliments, tender touches, cuddling, and words of admiration are usual things that come naturally without any effort. But with time, people start taking their partners’ virtues for granted. If a woman cooks the best lasagna in the world or parks her car like a pro, her man sees it every day and stops taking it as something really exciting. Is there any point in complimenting her regularly on her talents? There is, definitely. If her man doesn’t praise her, she’ll start to think why she needs that man.
Always remember that “we” is always more important than anything else. Never sacrifice the quality time with your loved one to your job or friends. There should always be time just for you two.
