Once you’ve got past the exciting, nerve-wracking initial dating stage of a relationship and are into the ‘going steady’ bit, it’s quite easy for the romance to die off. You soon find yourself in a routine and all of that excitement of the early days is reduced to little more than a fond memory. However, with a few simple romantic tips, you can keep the spark glowing and enjoy a deep, loving, long-lasting relationship.
Arguably the most important thing you can do for your partner is to look after yourself. You’ve almost certainly been in a room with someone who is unhappy before and felt an uncomfortable ambience or energy – well, the same happens in a relationship, only more so. If you look after yourself and keep yourself happy, that happiness will create the right atmosphere for helping to make your partner happy.
Go on dates
Dating doesn’t have to be just in the early stages of a relationship. Go to a Phuket romantic restaurant or watch a beautiful sunset together – whatever you used to do when you first started seeing each other, keep doing it. Don’t stop just because you’re now seeing each other all the time.
Celebrate the little things
Related to just being happy, positive energy in a relationship will always have a positive effect. If something good happens in your partner’s life, celebrate it. It doesn’t have to be anything significant – maybe they just got a word of praise off their boss at work. No matter how small it is, pop a cork or have a special meal or something. You’ll find that sharing the good times has an even more positive impact on a relationship than being there for the bad times.
Start a different conversation
This particular romantic tip can can be quite, but its worth trying because it’s particularly impactful. Once you’ve been going steady for a while, you might find that your conversations always follow the same routines. You already know each other very well, so there’s nothing new to ask, right? Wrong – ask an unexpected question. Your partner will be happy that you’re interested in every aspect of their life and you might learn something interesting. What kind of unexpected question do we mean? Ask what they think about during their commute to work, what superpower they would most like, or what they look for in a Phuket romantic restaurant. You might even be able to use the information to help you plan your next date.
