Well, it’s over. Valentine's day has come and gone just as it does every year. Whether you had a romantic night on the town with your significant other, or a sensual evening at home with your partner, we hope your day was a success.
For many, now that the romantic occasion is in the rear view mirror, the question is no longer what to do for valentines to impress your partner, rather, what can we do to keep the love going past valentine's day...
It’s very important to keep the spark going in a relationship, and many use valentine's day as a good excuse to get some love. The rest of the year lies dormant and uneventful. This doesn’t need to be the case. In fact, it shouldn’t!
No matter how long you’ve been with your partner it’s possible to keep the love alive for many years to come. We’ve put together a small list of 7 ways to keep the love going after valentine's day.
This might not sound as straightforward as others on this list. But think about it, when you come home from a long day of work and the house is a mess, you're probably not going to be in the best mood.
The same goes for your partner. Keeping the house clutter and mess free can reduce your stress, and put you both in a better mood. This leaves you both more likely to follow through with tip #6…
Checking in to your partner randomly in the day isn’t clingy, it's an incredibly simple way to stay in touch and let the other person know you're thinking about them.
Our days are often busy and stressful, and it's nice to get a text from time to time asking how our day has gone so far from the person you care about most.
Don’t spend all day telling them about the lunch you just had, keep it short and sweet, and then continue on with your day.
Thats right. You're the one your partner has to look at everyday, why not make it as nice as possible.
Many people are under the impression that they no longer need to maintain their well groomed appearance, and style after being in a relationship for a long time. This couldn’t be farther from the truth.
By spending even just a little bit more effort on our grooming, and style, we can go a long way at impressing our partners enough to keep the spark fresh for many years to come.
Stop in at The Emporium Barber for a cut and shave or beard trim. Our professional barbers would love to help you keep that spark alive and have you look your best for your partner.
Laying in bed at the end of a day is the perfect time to get some personal time in.
Those last few minutes before sleep for many are the only rare minutes where there isn't something else on your mind. It's a perfect time to talk about anything and everything. It also works as a perfect lead into the next point…
Sex is one of the most important parts of a relationship, and something that can begin to slack as relationships age.
It's important to have regular sex to relieve stress, and keep the connection strong. If you find you're not in the mood, there are plenty of tips online to help you find the right motivation. Everybody's happy.
When something pisses you off and you refuse to address it, the problem only tends to grow and eventually you end up resenting your partner.
Just say what makes you upset in a constructive, yet open fashion and work it out together. Countless relationships have needed just because one person couldn’t admit when they were upset, or addressed their concerns in a non-constructive, abrasive way.
Talk openly and consider both sides of the argument. The best way to go about this is in search of a solution, not forcing blame on your partner.
This is likely one of the most important things on the list. Scheduling a regular night to go out to a movie, for a couple drinks, or simply out for a nice dinner takes very little time and effort, but can have a huge impact on the quality of your relationship.
Whether it’s once a week, once every two weeks, or even once a month, having a night that is consistently “your” night, will help you and your partner to spend quality time together on a regular basis. Try the second Saturday of every month for example, or every Tuesday night. Making it a regular plan keeps it simple, and prevents either of your busy schedules from getting in the way of your love life.
