Kiss and hug your partner often. Showing affection is an important step to keep a relationship new and exciting. Almost everyone enjoys affection and when that affection stops, that when a relationship turns sour. Make it a point to touch your partner as often as possible, even in little ways. Brush or touch his arm when he walks by you, pat his butt in a flirtatious way, kiss his cheek when he’s standing in the kitchen, or walk up behind him and wrap your arms around his waist. These brief moments of affection take minutes to do and can keep the passion alive in a relationship. Excitement and newness take only seconds to achieve if you do these things just a couple times a day. A partner who feels affection will want to return affection also, so give it a try.
