The only way there can be a spark between a couple is if they rub against each other.
Romane killers being laptops and mobiles. There is no intimacy in sitting on the bed with electronics between you. Make television a shared pleasure. Keep aside those gadgets when you are together.
You’ll have to plan for alone time together. Especially in joint families. Two coffees, those cinema tickets, weekend getaways—sometimes it is a waste of money not to spend it.
Promotion, salary hike, appreciation by boss and a new project coming your way. She deserves it all. Just take her out for a drive and dinner and share your happiness. Make her feel part of that success.
A hug, kiss, a pinch on the rear and ruffling of hair, little gestures never go out of style. They don't just show you're interested, but keep the fire of intimacy burning.
(Wicked tip: If ever you feel you’ve seen all she’s got to offer, just picture what she looks like in your neighbor’s imagination. Promise, she’ll be as good as new. Same tip for girls.)
Not that you have to dive into bed like Olympic swimmers at starting gunshot. You can take your time to floss your teeth. Separately.
Point is don’t make it a habit to creep into bed while the better half is snoring. Happy couples can’t resist the temptation to go to bed at same times. Get up early in the morning to finish off the work you got home from office. But get under the sheets at the same time.
A magic trick to be a happy couple is not to be angry at the same time.
When a partner take responsibility for his/her mistake and makes efforts to apologize, the other has less chance of building up negative feelings. This is the opposite of blame and requires an ability to be humble.
Another magic trick, avoid sleeping on a fight.
Studies repeatedly show that couples of all ages who report higher levels of relationship satisfaction also report having good sex lives. So after that ugly fight, steam things up and you will forget what just happened before.
Whether it is your past, dark secrets of your family, office or financial issues, your partner should know everything. Keeping secrets create a sense of insecurity and should be avoided.
Happy couples are pleased to be seen together and are not embarrassed of occasional affectionate contact. They are not showing off; just saying that they belong with each other.
(Not so wicked tip: Know where to draw the line on PDA. Finger in finger is fine in a public park. Tongue in tongue is not.)
