In order to keep the fire burning, you shouldn’t become too complacent in your relationship. This means never taking what you have for granted, always making an effort to show them how much they mean to you, being spontaneous, having fun together (the kind where you feel like you’re falling in love in all over again and laughing until your sides are aching), trying new things, and exploring together. There needs to be chemistry from the start if you stand any chance of keeping things ablaze for many years to come, and you should look for ways to excite and surprise your partner day after day.
For a guide on how to do exactly this and to keep that all important fire burning away, then continue on.
Plan A Romantic Weekend Away
Be prepared to splash out a little bit, as you need every aspect to be just perfect. Show them you care by going the extra mile and ensuring that you’ve got all bases covered. Romance isn’t dead, and candles, a roaring open fire, cooked dinners, and hand holding will always make the other person feel desired and appreciated. To start planning a weekend away, you should have their interests at heart, so plan the weekend around their favorite things to do and what makes them happy. You’ll be beaming from ear to ear when you see just how excited and impressed they are by your efforts.
Look for places that are secluded and cozy, so that you can enjoy each other’s company and feel connected. Amberley House Cottage Holidays are nestled in the rural Sussex, England and can provide you and your partner a retreat in the countryside to reconnect and explore an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Inject Some Fun
If you’re in search of some good fun, dancing, cocktails, and a late night, then look for more lively hubs in the area. Always be sure to check out how the different areas fair in reviews by other LGBTQ+ members before going, as you don’t want to thoroughly bored. Inject some fun by attending queer events in the city, and going to see lives shows, performances, and concerts. If you’re in the UK for your trip away, and specifically London, then look to go to places like Dalston Superstore, or The Chateau as both have a friendly and anything-goes atmosphere. Soho never fails to disappoint, and you’ll find an inclusive sphere here too.
Don’t Neglect Intimacy
It’s easy to neglect your intimate relationship, especially when you’re both hugely busy at work, stressed, overtired, or have been together for a long time. However, you must find time to have fun together in the bedroom, and it’s essential to ensure that both parties are getting what they need out of your sexual relationship.
No topic of conversation should be off limits, so be readily available to open up the conversation to talk about sex. If you feel unhappy, unsatisfied, or curious about any other areas of your sexuality at any time in your relationship, then talk to your partner immediately. When topics such as these are left unsaid, problems can arise so it’s always best to be open and honest with your loved one.
