Romance is vital to a relationship, it can ebb and flow but not always easy to keep going. Remember in the beginning of the relationship, you both did romantic gestures for each other. Over the years it seems that the romance has taken a back seat to your everyday life. Most couples feel there just isn’t time or some feel now that we are fully in the relationship, romantic gestures aren’t really necessary. Well, I’m here to tell you no matter how long you’ve been together or whatever else you have going on in your life, it’s time to kick the romance back into the relationship. It will help to keep your relationship alive and healthy.
Romance: We don’t have time
We’re too busy, we have too much on our plate, or any other excuse why you can’t make time for romance. I think it’s because people think it has to be some all-out thing that takes a lot of time. Really it can just be a small gesture to let your partner know you are important to them. If your partner loves flowers, you can pick up some at the market, or even pick one from the yard. It’s not the cost of the flowers, it’s the gesture that counts.
If you have children, it makes it harder to find time to be alone together. If you are fortunate enough to have someone to watch the kids, then date night is a great option. Date night doesn’t have to be an expensive restaurant; it can be anything that will allow you two to just enjoy each other’s company. If one of the partners is the stay at home parent, they’ve been with the kids all day, running errands, cleaning house, doing laundry and loads of other chores. A nice romantic gesture would be to take the kids out for pizza and let your partner have time to themselves just to take a nice long bath, read a book or just relax. While you might not think this romantic, believe me your partner will show you the love.
Today in most homes, both partners have to work and that can put a great strain on both of you. This is especially true if one partner has to also do all the house chores and if there are children involved, take care of them too. Don’t be that person that comes home and sits on the couch while your partner does all the work. That won’t get you any points in the romance field because your partner will be so tired, the bedroom will only be for sleeping. While I’m on the subject of the bedroom, keep in mind romance doesn’t always have to mean sex. Sometimes it can just mean romance and if it leads to good sex, well good for you. Jumping in to do a load of laundry, or simply bathing the kids and getting them ready for bed is more of a romantic gesture than you can imagine.
Romance: We don’t need it
If you have the thought just because you’ve been in the relationship for a long time you no longer need romance, let me give you a clue. You are dead wrong and need to rethink this. I read an article some time back about a couple that had been married for over 50 years. When asked what kept their marriage so strong, they both agreed they felt it was because they still had romance in their relationship.
Romance isn’t just for the beginning of a relationship, it needs to continue through the years. You don’t have to do all the crazy things you did in the beginning but you do have to work at it. So often when romance goes out the window, it leaves your partner thinking you don’t care enough to put forth the effort. By the way, it takes two to make a relationship work, so both need to do those little romantic things to keep it going.
Turn on the music and dance, even if it’s just around the kitchen. Tell your partner how beautiful they look no matter if they are having a bad hair day. Cook them their favorite meal even if you feel like just getting take-out. Feed the kids early then make a nice dinner for just the two of you. There are so many little things you can do, it just takes a few minutes of your time, a little thought and some effort.
Keep the romance alive and it will keep your relationship flowing. Remember, romance isn’t just for Valentine’s Day or a special occasion. A little romance can make any day a special day.
