Tell your partner how much you love
him/her. Though you think its not necessary coz you are
married and are living together that will naturally imply
that you love one another. But believe me its not enough.
It's often taken for granted but its nice to hear those
magical words 'I Love You' once in a while.
Show genuine interest in your loved
one. Don't take things for granted. Don't think that if
things appear to be ok, they are ok. Show that you care
and reveal to your love that he/she is important to you.
Ask how his/her day was and if there is anything you can
do to help.
There may be many negative points
in your partner and you might hate them but that's no
solution. Concentrate on the positive. Make a list of
what you love about each other. Love can make all the
negative qualities vanish.
Make time to be alone together. Togetherness
is very important in a relationship and even if you are
very busy you ought to spend some quiet time with your
love. What I mean by quiet time is: No television, no
kids, and no distractions. Go out on a romantic date at
least twice in a month. This is very essential for maintaining
a healthy relationship.
Go out on a vacation once in three
months. That way you can forget all the tensions and just
freak out with your love.
Get intimate. Give your mate a long
kiss. I mean a passionate kiss like the ones when you
were dating. Get cosy with him. Be in his/her arms and
enjoy each other's company without worrying about work,
kids, deadlines etc.
Extend a helpful hand and do the household
chores and do it together. This way you will ensure that
it's the family of the two of you and you have to be responsible
Learn to laugh together. Laughter is
the cure of many ailments and it will make you feel good
too. Laughter can reduce your risk of heart disease and
high blood pressure also.
Make every day count. Your being together
is a special thing in itself so make it special in every
way. For a week do something special for the other person.
Whether it is a phone call, special dinner or time alone,
doing something out of the ordinary is a sure fire way
to show your love how much you care.
Surprise your loved one. Cook his/her
favourite meal, go to some movie and pick her/him up from
his/her office, give him/her a surprise gift, plan a date
and make it special.
Make a tape of your favourite songs.
Music is universal and can bring back loving memories
with the first played notes. Remember the music you used
to love and how you felt.
Say it with flowers. Send flowers to
him/her in his/her office. Say that you love him/her with
flowers and it will surely bring all the love that had
faded back into your life.
