If you think that the charm in your relationship always remains the same as the initial beginnings of your bond, then you must come out of that la-la land as soon as possible because the word eternity without efforts is illusional. And unfortunately, most couples don't make efforts to maintain the charm in their relationships. This is the very reason why people often complain regarding their happiness and satisfaction levels with their partners after spending a certain period.
Efforts are the most crucial elements that are needed to flourish a relationship. It's like watering a plant, if you don't provide proper nutrients to a plant, its growth gets gradually reduced and one day it vanishes off. So, if you stop making efforts, you miss the inspiration to appreciate your partner and in the end, you feel like getting apart from the person whom you love. No matter what kind of relationship you are in, your daily routines may make you feel monotonous at one point which indeed demotivates you to recognize and realize your partner's existence with love. So, you need to make a few efforts to transform the daily routine of your relationship into something interesting.
Instead of sending typical good morning and good night, messages, surprise your partner with some romantic poetry, funny memes, and virtual games. Just make sure that you fill the void of your lively absence in your relationship.
Spare some time and have virtual dates for hours and hours on any Saturday or Sunday, at least weekly once to let your partner know that you still crave his or her presence in your life.
Do video calls instead of texting and audio calls. Because sometimes texting and voice modulations may divert the tone of a topic which may make your partner misunderstand you but in video calls, you can match both the tone and expression of a person.
Send surprise lunches and dinners. Or your partner's favorite dessert when he or she feels low at work or his/her place.
Shop for both of you instead of focusing on yourself and your needs. Sometimes shopping together virtually bring you close to know each other's tastes and preferences.
No matter how far you live, try visiting your partner at least on his/her special days. Because it's always good to have special people on special days!
On top of everything, never miss devoting your partner the minimum time you have in your day. Remembering your partner at least once a day is much needed to keep the charm alive in a long-distance relationship!
As a couple, you undertake everything together. You see, talk, sleep with each other, decide, argue, fight, make love, and many more things with each other. This assuredly makes you feel bored with each other too. So, your efforts must focus on keeping each others' world interesting to turn your relationship together into an interesting part of your life.
Cook special dishes for your partner without any need for an occasion.
Don't forget to gift flowers and cards like typical teenagers whenever you feel like giving. Don't forget the special days, though.
Ask, suggest, and if require force your partner to step out and hang out with his or her pals to have some self-appreciation time.
Go for date nights on your special days or at least when your salaries get credited.
Plan for vacations to some calm places where you can spend a good time together out of your abode. And also take a break when needed.
Visit your families together and make sure you keep up with your partner's family regularly if you are open. If you are closeted, host some house parties at your place. The existence of your close people brings you closer together, and you can truly feel like a couple!
Waking up together must not feel like a monotonous thing. So surprise your partner with your romantic moves. And never miss giving goodnight kisses regularly even though you end up having a rough day or a massive fight. One goodnight kiss has the power to heal any kind of situation!
You are kind of less privileged than a live-in couple but more privileged in the aspect of seeing each other than a long-distance couple. So, balancing the act of spending time is one of the important efforts you must make to keep the charm alive.
Dating is all about knowing and understanding each other. So give equal value to each others' tastes and preferences.
Go to movies, places, or restaurants by considering each others' suggestions instead of getting along with one person's mind.
Introduce your partner to your pals and let the world know that you are dating a person you fell in love with.
Be flexible, comfortable, and romantic when it comes to the public display of affection.
Make surprise visits to your partner's workspace or college but not home. Try to develop a routine of picking and dropping your partner whenever you are free.
Just because you meet regularly, it doesn't mean you should take your partner for granted. You must behave and remain the same like the way how you used to be in the initial days. Don't ignore your partner. If you have some work, leave them a text instead of assuming that your partner would understand you.
Plan for weekend getaways and mini-vacations to spark up your relationship.
The best part of typical dating couples is you can still play hide and seek with people around you. Engage in adventures. Go out for ice creams, night walks. Subscribe for a gym partnership together.
Make little changes whenever you feel the monotony of your relationship. These beautiful little things can regain the strength in your bond and bring the glow to your relationship by making you believe that you still love your partner no matter what. Efforts do matter!
