Cupid’s Advice:

Especially if you’ve been with the same person for quite some time, you can eventually get stuck into a routine with them. It may seem to you like the desire you had for them when you first started dating isn’t there anymore. You’ve lost that spark, or connection. Well, if you want to revive what you deem a dead relationship, check out our advice below.

1. Take a look at yourself: Do you know how you’re contributing to the lull in the relationship? Nobody wants to admit that they’re personally responsible. You may think that it’s much easier to blame someone else. However, before you start playing the blame game, take a look in the mirror.

2. Don’t think about what’s fair: You’ll probably have to practice guiding your partner to a better relationship. It’s unrealistic that it will come naturally. It’s not fair, and it’s going to take some work on your part, but it’s what will save your relationship.

3. Be positive: Too often, we provide our partners with negative reinforcement. Now, it’s time to change that. Be sure to thank your partner for doing the dishes, compliment them, and smile at them. These small gestures will go a long way.
