how to keep your relationship interesting


Ways to bring Spark back into Your Relationship

  • Remind yourself of the thing that made you to fall in love with your partner. As humans, things are bound to change with time and it is possible to allow the burning spark in our relationship to die down. When the oil in your lamp is low, refill the spark with great memories of the sweet moments when you started. Remind yourself how you felt when it all began.
  • Communicate more and express your love daily. Communication is very important in relationship. Express your love daily and compliment your partner with words and deeds. This should be a routine.
  • Be active and physical together. The lockdown has created opportunity for partners and families to have enough time to engage in sports, exercise, games, etc together. Have fun, take a walk together and enjoy physical contact of each other. This helps in bringing back mutual interest in the relationship.
  • Go for a Date night and remember the good time shared together in the past. Remember your victories and failures together. And have mutual plans and goals together for the future.
  • Be Grateful and appreciative for who your partner is. He or she is human and not an angel. So do not expect your partner to be a perfect person. Listen to your partner to understand his or her point before trying to make your partner understand yours. Do not compare your partner to another person. Every individual is unique.
  • Relationship is give and take. Always think win-win and focus on what will bring mutual peace and happiness to the home and less of who is right. Remember that you should always give what you cherish in a relationship. Make emotional deposits and you will have something in the account to draw from when you need it.

I hope that with these few ideas above, it will help us bring back the spark in our relationships. The knowledge of the fact that we have a great relationship out there is an energizer that motivates us to move on with confidence in this period of uncertainty. It gives us strong hope when we remember that there is a loved one out there praying for us and thinking about our progress and well-being. So please despite the ups and downs in life, strive to be the best partner you can be. Get professional help if needed and remember to help someone by your side in this uncertain period.

Kindly like, comment and share the post with someone out there you love, it might be of help.

Remain Safe and bye,

Cheers,

Joseph.

  1. Great post! This is an excellent post on how to keep your relationship interesting. I am currently in a long-term relationship, and we practice on being the best version we can be of ourselves for one another. 

    I really enjoyed the quotes you chose to put in this article. I feel like it brings a positive perspective and gives the post all the more meaning. 

    I will be saving those quotes so that I can look at them every day. I look forward to coming back and reading more of your posts!

    • Thanks Elise. Please keep up the excitement in your relationship and I am glad you enjoyed the article and the quotes. I appreciate. Cheers.

  2. Hi Joseph

    Nice post. I love the quote from Lillian Hellman  “People change and forget to tell each other.” This is just to say that communication is the key to the success of any relationship. We are not meant to stay the same forever. Our opinion can change due to different circumstances and we need to keep talking to know what is changing in our partner’s way of thinking.

    I think that quote is very helpful for me.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks Adyns68, that quote is so simple yet very powerful. Communication is very important and it is always important to carry our partner along. Thanks and please continue to visit the site and share with friends. Cheers.

    • I am learning every day from your post. This post on how to keep your relationship interesting is another eye opener. personally I have discovered that every relationship that communicate more and express their love daily tends to last longer, and that is what am personally building on cause it looks like my weak point. I have also discovered that relationship is give and take, you don’t expect anything when you are not ready to give. Thanks Joseph for this great post.

      • Thanks very much. I am happy that you are benefiting from the articles. Please help share with someone. Cheers

  3. Hello Joseph, thank you so much for this post, you don’t know how much joy this has brought to me, I have been having him up in relating with my daughter because of the nature of my job, though we used to be best friends before I took on my current job, but just like you said “I remember how it all started” and just the thought of it is making me smile as I’m typing this now, I’ll adopt the steps you’ve provided, and I hope to send you another message that it worked.

    • Thanks Jomata, I am so glad that you benefited from the post. The importance of great relationship to our happiness is huge and every effort we can make to keep it optimal is always welcomed. Please keep the communication open. I will be happy to hear from you again. I am really happy. Cheers.

  4. Nice Post. Very useful for all of us. Most at times the beginning of many relationships are very sweet and interesting but as time progresses the interest begins to narrow down. This has led to breakage in many relationships. Its inspiring to have a post like yours addressing such issues and how to deal with it. 

    • Thanks my brother. It is always sweet at the beginning of many relationships but with time, it may begin to diminish instead of growing. Please help share with your friends, it might help someone and visit for more articles. Cheers.

  5. Hey nice article you have there. When it comes to the matters of the heart it’s very unique. An interesting relationship that is not back by love and trust will definitely fail no matter the adventures, picnic or cinemas you both went , because you will surely have a reason to pick up quarrel from any slightest mistake.

    • Thanks edahnewton1, you are very correct. Love and trust is key. It is also correct that both may also diminish and there is need to always make sure that both love and trust is sustained over time. Please I appreciate your contribution and kindly share with your friends. Cheers.
