Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes the passion has a way of seeping out of your relationship and love life. Cupid has some ways to put it back:

1. Write love letters: Love letters can be an effective way to share some of the deepest feelings with your partner. It takes time and effort to pour your heart out on a page. A letter is a personal way to show that special person you care. Remind that special person why you fell in love with them. Share your favorite memories and why they mean so much. Sometimes a person needs to be reminded of all the reasons they are loved.

2. Keep the thrills: One of the most common mistakes couples make throughout their relationship is allowing themselves to get into a routine rut. A relationship needs some excitement to keep the spark going. Finding activities that get your hearts racing can help to light that fire again. Plan a spur of the moment romantic getaway for two. Not only will this bring excitement, but it will also help to create the space for quality one on one time.

3. Challenge yourselves: After a while, you have gotten to know your partner very well and feel as though there is nothing else to know. Trying something challenging can allow partners to incorporate each others skills and abilities to overcome a challenge together. The rush of completing the challenge will leave you feeling closer and more attracted to one another. Working as a team to overcome challenges helps build communication skills and opens you up to new sides of one another.
