How can you fix your relationship that you feel has become stale and routine?

The thing with all relationships is that people usually have their highs and lows. In the beginning, it’s all fiery and full of chemistry. But once people start getting to know each other better, they tend to get comfortable. And then the spark goes.

Usually, one of the partners realizes this. And once you do, you need to talk to each other and find ways to make things better.

Tips on improving your relationship.

Spend time apart with friends

If you are spending too much time together and have realized that you are feeling a bit crowded, the best remedy to fix your relationship is to try spending some time apart with friends that you don’t share. This doesn’t mean that you don’t want to spend time together. It helps because you will have different experiences that you can share when together. Plus, absence does make the heart grow fonder.

Spice things up in the bedroom

The bedroom is where things start going south. In fact, the bedroom is what makes people realize that there is something wrong with the relationship. Try new things. Role play, bondage, sex toys, planning a sex rendezvous at some cheap motel… All these are things that can bring that spark back. The trick here is to move away from your comfort zone.

Get out of town and away on a weekend getaway to fix your relationship

Sometimes, being in the same environment every day with someone can also dampen a relationship. As a couple, you need to move away from what you are used to and share some new experiences. Plan a weekend away. Get out of town and enjoy some quality time together

You don’t need to break the bank. Just get away from your day to day activities.

Talk to each other

Communication is very important. Sit down and come up with a game plan on how to make things better. Try discussing why things are going wrong. And you can’t fix things yourselves, seek the help of a professional.
