This is quite a personal take for me it contains three basic rules for keeping your love alive.
Maybe it can help you with reviving the love in your relationship, it worked for mine.
So let's start here.
This isn't just about listening to your partner it's also noticing anything about them that's different and realising when they are making a bid for help.
Listening is just one part you need to absorb what they've said.
If they've told you about an up coming business meeting, a doctors appointment or a play date it's important to remember to ask how it went.
It's all about knowing their world .
Pay attention to how they are looking.
If they've done something different or wearing an outfit that you think looks hot then say it.
Imagine going to an effort to look great and nothing is said, it kind of makes one not even bother in the future.
Ladies guys aren't the only ones who are able to give partners complements. Seriously if his butt looks great in those jeans tell him.
OK now it's time to look up from your phone.
What's going on in your house?
Mine can be a very insane and very hectic at times. Getting kids to do they're homework , bathing them and dinner cooked and lunches made just seems like a never ending battle.
Look up, pay attention and take notice of when your partner needs you without them having to ask.
This is by far the easiest one of all but it's the one that we tend to forget.
It's a very simple thank you even for something that may seem very small.
We teach our children manners but we don't always show them a good example.
Thanks for the cuppa.
That was a great meal thank you.
Thanks for helping me with the house work.
Some really easy examples.
The less that appreciation that a person feels the less they will be wanting to do for you.
Be warned though that if something isn't done the way that you'd normally do it don't put them down for trying, just be grateful that they made an effort.
So I've left the best till last.
This is by far the most mushiest one.
It's the one that ensures a physical connection between partners and if you do the above top two then this will be a whole lot easier to maintain.
Simply take the time to get cosy on the couch or sit together and hold hands.
Kiss each other when you part ways in the morning and then kiss when you reunite, do this over anything else. I walk in the door at the end of my working day and both the kids and the dog are all over me but my husband gets attention from me first 😘.
People often complain on here in regards to PDA well I've got news for you. They're not doing it to show off or shove it in your face they're doing it because they love each other.
It's a real show of unity.
Amongst the madness of a big family mothers day picnic my husband took the chance to hold on to me, kiss me and told me that he loves me. It just gives you that wonderful warm fuzzy feeling inside.
Try to as often as you can to get into bed at the same time as each other .
Cuddle up before you go to sleep, cuddling is a form of connection and sometimes that cuddling will turn into something else if you know what I mean 😍.
Sex make sure that stays regular and keep it great and never stop trying to impress her/him.
