Whether you have been together for one year or you have been together for over a decade, there will be times in your relationship where things start to feel stale. That new relationship excitement doesn’t last forever. Thankfully, with a bit of work and planning, you can spice up your relationship and get the ball rolling again. Let’s take a look at some ways to spice up your relationship.
- Try Something New Together
- Change Up Your Routine
- Plan A Date Night
- Drop Hints
- Invest Time In Eachother
Try Something New Together
You may think you’ve gone on every date you can possibly go on, but there is always something new you can try together. Maybe you have both wanted to go skydiving your whole lives but never got up the courage to do it. Now is a perfect time! If you aren’t that adventurous, take a road trip to someplace you both have never been and spend some quality time together to reconnect.
Change Up Your Routine
Many people thrive on routine and day after day you probably get up, go to work, come home, take care of household duties and before you know it the day is done. You probably didn’t spend enough time with your significant other.
It is important to make sure you go out on dates and spend quality time together, but make sure you switch things up. Try new restaurants, see movies you normally wouldn’t see and spend time together during part of the day you normally wouldn’t see each other.
Plan A Date Night
Many people are guilty of not going out on dates with each other, especially if there are young children in the home that are busy with school and activities. It is very important to go out on dates just the two of you. This is an adult time that will spice up your relationship the more you go out. You can read more here.
Throughout the day, leave a note or send a text to your significant other and let them know you are thinking about them.
If you feel a little risky, you can make subtle mention of what you might like to happen when you see each other later on in the evening. Drop hints that will generate excitement and spice things up. For more suggestions, you can visit this link.
Invest Time In Each Other
A little bit of effort goes a long way and can really make a person feel special. It doesn’t take a lot of time to connect so in the evening, sit with one another on the same couch and reconnect after a long day. Spend time participating in the hobbies that you each like to show you have an interest in investing time into your relationship.
It doesn’t really take a lot of effort to spice up your relationship. It is incredibly important though, in order to keep both parties interested and excited about the future together. Things can quickly become routine and mundane but this is easy to fix with a little bit of planning and effort.
Long-term relationships are a result of the sheer dedication of two souls, who defy all odds with their will to stay together. Unfortunately, not everybody gets what they crave for their entire lives – an amazing companion. Things often come to an end, and people are left lamenting for the loss they’ve suffered. If you’re here thinking we will help you forget the person you once loved truly like portrayed in the movie ‘Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind’, you’re wrong. And for obvious reasons, you won’t be able to do that either. You can’t just stop loving a person and be okay with it. That’s not how things work.
In case you’ve been feeling very restless, here are 6 tips to get over a long-term relationship and heal your broken heart:
1. Take Your Time:
Once you’ve broken up, the first thing you need to understand is that the healing process takes time. Give yourself some breathing space. If you feel like your home is no longer where you want to be, pack your bags and set out to travel. Travelling is one of the best things that take your mind off from the situations you don’t want to deal with currently.
2. Move Out:
Once your partner moves out, you won’t feel like living in the same apartment any longer. The décor you picked together as a couple won’t bring any joy to you, rather the memories of the times you shared together as a couple will haunt you as long as you stay there. Moving out will not only take your mind off the situation for a while but also ensure a fresh start for you for the days to come.
3. Cut The Bridges:
If you felt it won’t work out eventually and chose to let go, whether it be for their betterment, you need to cut some mutual people out of your life. This, however, depends on the level of maturity you two had as a couple. If you two were mature enough to understand the aftermaths, this isn’t necessary. In case you feel depressed around the people who act as a bridge between you and your ex, you need to let them go as well.
4. Don’t Resist Too Much:
Resistance is futile. If you can’t control something, don’t bother about it. Getting depressed over things you can’t control will only bring further misery to your already broken heart. If you start forbidding yourself from each and every little joy in life just because you had a breakup, things will only get worse than they already are.
5. Understand The True Meaning Of Moving On:
Moving on from a relationship doesn’t actually mean you need to hate each other in order to speed up the healing process. It rather means that you guys came to an understanding and took a unified decision to ensure each other’s happiness in the long run. Don’t block them on social media and Instagram. It won’t do any good to either of you, trust me.
6. Give Yourself Pocket Promises:
In case you feel that you are really addicted to your partner and need to take control of your life, we have got a solution for you. Take a post-it paper and write yourself a ‘pocket-promise’. A ‘pocket-promise’ is a commitment you promise yourself that you’ll keep, no matter what. Keep it with you at all times and whenever you feel like you’re going weak again, read the piece of paper and gather the strength to go on.
I’d like to establish a few things straight. First, you can never forget a person completely with whom you once imagined spending your life and second, you can’t just torture yourself wanting to get back together neglecting the practical aspects of breaking up. If you feel suffocated all the time, see a therapist instead. Talking with your friends will also help in healing the broken heart. Stay blessed!
Are you a speed dater? Falling short of getting good matches? There are some awesome tips that you can follow in order to succeed in speed dating.
4 Tips to Impress Your Date with Speed Dating:
1. Your Dress Should Leave Some Good Impression
I agree that not all of us have the looks of Tom Hiddleston (have you seen him in ‘The Night Manager’?) but we should try and be our 100% at whatsoever is in our control. Dressing in our control is this is the first thing any girl will notice in you if she is meeting you for the first time. You should dress to kill. You have to stand out from the guys she has dated in past. No girl will ever fell for you is you don’t dress nicely for the first date.
Something in a semi-formal and semi-casual combo will do the trick. It will make you look sharp and smart – a complete package.
Also, you have to look confident in whatever you are wearing. Even if you choose to wear a t-shirt and jeans (highly non-recommended), make sure that you carry them on with confidence.
2. Reach Early And Give Her A Surprise
However, not going on those lines, it is recommended that you should go early on the date’s place and set her a surprise. Nothing too fancy or embarrassing. Don’t propose her on the first date goddamnit, if you know what I mean.
You can also get a little warm up and shrug off the nervousness before she arrives.
Reaching early to a spot gives you an added advantage to getting comfortable with the environment.
3. Have A Light Conversation
Speed dating is all about fun and experiences. You can talk to each other about the other dates you have been with.
Share a nice laugh with wine and something to eat. Don’t get too much personal on the first date. Don’t try to extract too much information out of her as it might turn her off.
Seriousness in a conversation might also come as desperation which you don’t want anywhere near you.
She can not think that you are desperate because if she somehow concludes this, the date is done.
Smile but not all the time. That’s creepy. Make her comfortable, touch her hands after you have been here for a while.
Make eye contacts and share some fun stories.
4. Don’t Start Taking Notes in The Middle of The Conversation
Agreed, it is difficult to keep tracks of each other’s personalities when you go on a speed dating event.
This is why people take notes so that when the event gets over, they can recall the personalities of different people.
However, some people have this disturbing habit of taking notes in the middle of the conversation.
This turns off most of the girls. They feel like its an interview rather than a date.
You should always make notes after she leaves.
Yes, you might lose some things to add to your notes but it will be worth it.
