Keeping Love Alive
Keeping love alive in a relationship is a task that can be achieved, much of the advice in this article is taken from relationship expert John Gray, as well as Tony Robbins and David J. Lieberman.
In a new relationship it seems as though we are all given several years of “chemical romance” where our hormones keep the passion alive and aid us through the harder times. After this three year or so period reality sets in and this is where the love is lost. Here are a few things, but by no means a conclusive list as to what can help to overcome this.
Understand this happens and be prepared for it
By knowing that this period of the relationship is coming, we can prepare ourselves and be ready for it. Passion alone will sustain the relationship in the early years, after this, communication and co-operation is needed to keep things exciting. Use the early years to develop this and avoid complacency thinking the good times are self sustaining forever.
Remember what caused the spark in the first place
Often when we become comfortable with somebody we change our behavior towards them, little do we know it was that behavior that made us attractive to them in the first place. Keep enjoying the things you once enjoyed together, don’t become lazy, and don’t take the other for granted. If you ate out a lot for example when you met, make the effort to do so on a regular basis.
Get away together regularly
Very important, take as many mini trips together as possible; adventure is very exciting. Nothing like a little adventure to keep the passion alive.
Make a choice
Keeping love alive is ultimately a choice.
It’s a commitment from both people. It will never be plain sailing all the way, understand this and commit to seeing the rockier time through and this will be a great thing.
So there are a few tips, I hope they are helpful. Education is a great thing and the more you seek the more successful you will be, never stop studying the subject and you will end up a winner.
