5 Ways to Keep Your Relationship Hot
5 Ways to Keep Your Relationship Hot from relationship expert Rachel DeAlto:
Start dating again – Don’t let life get in the way of date night. Make time for each other, get a babysitter (if you have children) and plan a regular night out just the two of you at least twice a month.
Get competitive - Increase your dopamine levels by doing something new that pits you against each other in a playful way. Go play racquetball or go bowling to play on your competitive natures.
Wax poetic – Leaving notes around the home or in your partner’s wallet or briefcase is a sweet and surprising way to remind them that you love them. Seeing the words in written form can make all the difference.
Ask and listen – Ask how your partner feels and about his or her needs. Listen to the answers and make an effort to resolve issues before they develop into problems.
Don’t forget about sex – A good sex life is a must in any relationship you are looking to keep hot. Life can always get in the way of fun if you let it, but make an effort to connect. Be spontaneous and don't ever schedule sex.
