August is romance awareness month which means now is the time to celebrate all of the romance in your life. If your relationship is lacking a little romance, these tips will help reignite the flame. Relationships with romance are generally happier, more fulfilling, and more likely to survive in the long-term.
Make Time for Romance
Before you can celebrate romance, you have to make the time for it. talk with your partner and find the time between your busy schedules to focus on yourself and your relationship. Rather you choose a time each day, each week, or just promise each other to make the time as you go, romance has to be a priority in your day-to-day routine.
Go on A Date
This may seem obvious, but it’s something a lot of people stop doing once the newness of a relationship is gone. Plan a classic dinner date with your partner. Choose a restaurant you’ll both love and use the time to reconnect. You can even include a movie on your date night – see it in theaters or take a rental home with you!
Take Walks Together
Romance doesn’t always have to come in the form of elaborate plans. If a date night isn’t in your budget or schedule right now, ask your partner to take a walk with you. Walking after work each day is a good way to catch up on what your partner did all day before going home and settling into your nightly routine.
Communicate with Written Words
Sometimes it’s hard to be romantic verbally but communicating with the written word is a commonly overlooked option. Send your partner a nice email or text during their lunch break to let them know they’re on your mind. Sometimes just a simple message says it all and proves that the romance is still there, stronger than ever. If you want to take the romance one step further, give your partner a hand-written letter.
Find a Common Interest
If you’re having a hard time feeling romance in your relationship, it’s time to think outside the box. Find a common interest that you and your partner can enjoy together. Maybe you can read a book together, take a cooking class, or even share music with one another. It doesn’t matter what the common interest is as long as it means you are quality time together!
Keeping the romance alive in your relationship is something that will require work and dedication from both people involved. Don’t be afraid to talk to your partner if you feel like you need more romance. After all, open communication is a form of romance all on its own!
