What are all the little things you do, to keep the magic alive?

Have you notice your mate getting less and less interested in th relationship? What do you do to combat this? What are the little things you do or have learned along the way to help keep the magic alive?

My advice would be to delay marriage until at least the late-30's or early-40's to allow better appreciation of attributes.

As silly as this may sound, keep taking her out on dates. At the tail-end of my relationship with an ex (of three years), it was never his idea to go out, and I felt like I actually had to ask him to take me out, even just for lunch or something--I lost my interest pretty quickly. Never stop making her feel like she's the sexiest woman in the world.

And if you can delay that long, why not another 30 - 40 years just to be safe?

Don't keep watching TV when the other person starts fondling any part of you. Sure-fire magic-killer.

Especially don't try to look around them to catch the score.



Oh, yeah, you wanted things to DO, not things to AVOID.

Um, how's this one: when you get home, be happier to see your partner than you are to see the dog.

Follow up statements your partner makes or stories your partner tells with something related to what they said. (e.g. "I had a great day at work today, we finally got some of those TPS reports out the door." "Oh really? I know you've been working on them for a while, that's great news." Not, "Oh. Hey, I think there's a new Titleist driver I want.")

Remember or resurrect or create some little in-jokes, some just-between-you goofiness.

Hot monkey sex can help, if the two of you still remember how.

Little silly notes in purses/pockets/briefcases and/or surprise text msgs just to say Hey.

<traditional> Flowers. </traditional>

#1 reason for a failing relationship is simply taking each other for granted. Always make an effort to compliment each other's day-to-day successes and accomplishments. Make your spouse feel special, especially when they've had a hard day. It's not the gimicky box of chocolates or flowers that will keep a marriage strong, although it's a pleasant distraction, it's the mutual respect you have for one another day-to-day that will keep your relationship strong.

A marriage is NOT a selfish union. It's all about taking care of each other - emotionally, physically, financially & spiritually. I see way too many people screw up relationships simply because they got too caught up in themselves.

Physical contact. A little kiss here and there out of nowhere, a stroke on the arm or back, touching the face, or any little bit of tactile activity. It helps to draw the other person in and increases intimacy and affection.

Having long, interesting conversations. Go and read a book about something that fascinates you and talk about it with your partner. Bouncing ideas off of each others heads gets the creative juices flowing, which in my case tends to get other juices flowing.

Take up a new hobby together, or just get out and do something active together. Physical activity as we all know gets the yummy endorphines pumping. Sharing this with your lover will ensure that you both feel amazing at the end of the day, and that is a great recipe for a romantic evening.
