This is due to the adulting nature of couples at this stage which causes the relationship to become stale.
Rekindle the honeymoon phase by giving your partner a peck when you part or hold each other as you watch your favorite show on TV.
Once in a while tickle each other and engage in pillow fights. Making out without going all the way to having sex will make you feel like teenagers once again.
This may seem stupid but it reignites the fire in your relationship by helping to establish new connections with your partner, and keep the sexual energy alive.
5. Revisit what you did during your honeymoon phase
Being together for a long time makes you forget things that brought and kept you together.
You also lose track of things that you used to do to keep your relationship fresh like dressing sexy lingerie or doing adventurous things, thus losing the excitement of your relationship.
Relive those good old days and get the excitement back those things you did together at the beginning of the relationship.
It can range from going for a hike to simply looking at the photo album or talking about those good moments together.
6. Take some time off
Being around each other all the time especially in a long-term relationship is not healthy. It brings boredom and a feeling of stagnation which kills the excitement of the relationship.
To avoid this, take some ‘you’ time to practice self-care. Plan a trip with friends, or go on a girl’s or boy’s night out.
This makes you miss each other and appreciate the time you spend together. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. In your case, not only will it do that, but also bring excitement to your relationship.
It is no secret that keeping a long-term relationship exciting and fresh is difficult. However, with these smart hacks at your disposal, it is possible to keep the fire burning regardless of how many years you have spent together.
The ground rule remains that to do this, it will require continuous giving and effort from the two of you to make every moment exciting and fresh.
