If you have been in a long-term relationship, and maybe you think that it has plateaued a little, there are a few things that you can do. Power of Positivity lists a few great ways to fall in love with your partner all over again.

  • Go to bed at the same time and having a bit of pillow talk before you fall asleep can help reconnect as a couple. If this is impossible (opposite work schedules, etc.), you can try to at least lay with your partner as they fall asleep. Making a small effort like that can do a world of good for your relationship.
  • Try something new together which doesn't have to be expensive or dangerous, if can be something as simple as trying a new cheese as an appetizer before dinner or watching a new genre of movie that normally you would never think to watch.
  • Gratitude goes a long way so even if you haven't said "thank you" for something that your partner has done in a while, begin again, and even consider going the extra step and surprising them with homemade cookies or dinner cooked for when they get home from work.

It is easy to get "used to" your partner being there, and "used to" how things have become. Everyone wants to be appreciated though, and loved, so let your partner know how much you still care and appreciate them, and start to fall in love again.
