Falling in love is a great feeling. Don’t you agree? Everything revolves around the person you love and life feels so much more meaningful when your partner is around. However, once you get together, it is not difficult to fall out of love as well. Yes, that happens with everyone. However, love can always be rekindled…and here are three ways to do that.
1. Plan Something New To Do, Together
Being with someone for a while can get monotonous to the extent that you might even be in a rut. However, here’s something that will spice things up. A 1993 study that was published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships claims that couples who spent time engaging in new activities like dancing or hiking were more satisfied with their relationship than those who did nothing together or took part in pleasant but ordinary activities like watching a movie. Time to put your dancing (or trekking) shoes on?
2. Don’t Keep Score
It might be time to forget who said the last sorry and focus on just solving a fight. In fact, make sure the bedroom is devoid of this give-and-take format completely. A 2012 study published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science talks about how important it is to be willing to give in a relationship. The three-week study analysed forty-four couples in long-term relationships. They had to answer questions about their sexual activities and how they felt about it. The study showed that people who were more keen on giving in to what their partners wanted were more satisfied and had a greater sexual desire than those who were not. The study spoke about that it's important not to keep a relationship scorecard, especially in the bedroom.
3. Try To Laugh Together
We know this can’t be forced but try to do things that make the two of you happy. A 2015 study that was published in the journal Personal Relationships claims that laughing together indicates the relationship quality and closeness between partners. Researchers analysed 70 couples in a lab and noted how they laughed together. Couples who laughed together had a stronger relationship, according to the study.
With these three effective strategies, we are sure you will be head over heels in love with each other in no time.
