Treat each other with kindness and respect. Always talking to your partner in a respectful manner will help to keep the relationship exciting and new. Relationships take work and when the newness wears off, you need to strive to keep the passion alive. Remember how much you cared for this person when you first met and think of the reasons you fell in love with your partner. Always keep these reasons in mind. Your relationship will become exciting and new again when you remember the times that brought you to care for your partner so much. What was it that drew you to him (or her)? Was it his EYES his smile, his confidence? Make a vow to tell your partner something sweet at least once a day. Little acts of kindness keep a relationship new and exciting. This is actually easy to do. Leave him (or her) a Post-It note on the table each morning telling him you love him. Write a love note on the mirror after showering so that it shows up when your partner showers after you (using lipstick is great too…very sexy). Pack him a lunch each day and put a note inside wishing him a good day. Try anything little you can think of to your partner know you appreciate him. When someone feels loved, they are bound to return that love back to you. This helps to create instant newness and excitement in the relationship. And just think, it only took you a matter of minutes to do.
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.
Speak up and tell your partner what you need. In order to keep a relationship new and exciting, you need to tell your partner what it is that you’re missing in the relationship. Some partners don’t realize that they are being less affectionate, more irritable, or PAYINE LESS attention to domestic duties. Relationships become comfortable over time and it’s easy to lose sight of the important things you once did. Your partner may not realize that he (or she) has changed. So speak up and tell your partner that you want to work on bringing back the excitement and newness to your relationship. Tell him ways you think this could happen by explaining what you need. Then be prepared to listen to his needs as well. Communication is key in any relationship and will open the doors to a more exciting and happy relationship.
Make love often. This is a tough one to do in a relationship because work, kids, and household chores don’t always leave time and energy for sex with your partner. But, sex is important in a relationship and should be made a priority. Try making a plan to make love at least twice a week: once during the week and once on the weekend.
