Shhh, don’t tell anyone what we’re about to tell you. It’s no secret that to keep a relationship alive and thriving; there’s got to be passion and desire that continues to ignite the flames of love.
If you’re here, that means you’re wondering what the secrets are to a long-lasting relationship? We’ve got the answers you’ve been looking for. Get ready because it might get a little steamy in here.
1. Try a New Kink
You’ve heard the term ‘vanilla’ before when referring to what you and your partner do behind closed doors as far as doing the same old thing. One way that relationships last so long is because couples aren’t afraid to try something new.
Instead of sticking to your usual routine, why not try something out like bondage for beginners or role-playing. You’d be surprised how many fantasies your significant other has had about you being their teacher or the naughty student in the class.
2. Romance is Key
We often get caught up in the hustle and bustle of work, children, and other life stressors. One of the things that unfortunately begins to suffer is the relationship between you and your partner.
No matter what you do or how tired you are, make sure that you continue to perform romantic gestures for one another. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, but something as simple as picking up their favorite food on the way home from work or lighting a candle and running them a bath says everything you need to say and let them know you’re thinking about them.
3. Talk to Each Other
After years of being together, it can be easy to fall into a routine of sitting in silence. Take the time to talk to your partner, whether about their day or something new that you wanted to try.
You’ll be surprised how mentally connecting with your partner can lead to things getting intense in the best way possible.
4. Say Thank You
For a relationship to last long and thrive, both partners must feel appreciated. Showing appreciation to your partner is saying a simple thank you when they do the laundry.
Or it could mean giving them a hug and a kiss after they’ve done the dishes. Showing and vocalizing your appreciation for the things that your partner does shows them that you see and are acknowledging them.
Feeling appreciated in a relationship can help a relationship outlast the burning of a candle.
