Getting the best out of your relationship means caring for it from all sides. You need to nurture your relationship’s emotional and sexual elements and remember to do it regularly. The easiest way to kill the joy of a relationship is to take it for granted, and unfortunately, the longer we are with someone, the more the risk of taking them for granted grows.
Getting into the habit of expanding your relationship and nurturing it can help keep the romance alive and ensure your bond stays strong throughout your life.
Regularly Spend Time One-On-One
Between work, responsibilities, and personal projects, life can get busy. Add in the distraction of social media and mobile devices, and if you aren’t careful, you and your partner can end up living next to each other, but not together. Avoid this issue by regularly spending time one-on-one. This can be as simple as having dinner together without phones or other distractions. It could be going on a walk together once a day, or at least several times a week so that you can simply talk and enjoy each other’s company without distractions.
Continuously Adapt How You Communicate Your Needs
Communication is often a make-or-break trait in every relationship. Far too often, we get so comfortable with another person that we get used to how they understand us. When that understanding fails, we can blame them. By understanding how you react to bad news or under stress, you can create means of communication that suit both you and your partner. For example, if you find it too difficult to say what is bothering you right away, instead of getting angry you can have a few phrases like “I need time alone to process how I’m feeling” and then come back to the conversation later when the sting of emotion isn’t overshadowing the issue itself. Communicating your needs both in the everyday and in times of crisis is one of the key markers of a healthy relationship. Adapting and learning new ways to communicate better is important if you want to get the best out of your relationship.
Bring Toys into the Bedroom
One of the best and most rewarding ways to experiment in the bedroom is to bring toys into the equation. Toys can not only heighten arousal and pleasure, particularly for women, they can also add new components and a new dynamic to your relationship. There are sex toys for all types of relationships, but you will want to be careful where you buy your products for the best results. The best lesbian sex toy is always going to be designed by a member of that community, for example.
More than anything, however, experimentation and variation can both be used to heighten your sex life and your relationship, and toys can be the perfect way to do that.
A great way to keep the romance alive is to grow together. A great way to grow together is to learn new things about yourself and your partner. Take classes together, try at-home kit experiences, go on trips to new places, and generally get out there and experience more of the world with your favorite person.
