How to keep the fire burning in your relationship
Finding your true love is hard, finding someone that you’ll spend the rest of your life with is harder, but keeping that marriage alive is the hardest.
Girls drool over handsome men, they adore sexy men, but they go CRAZY over men with a great sense of humor! (Lucky me, I’ve got a man that has all those hehe) Raise your hands, ladies if you agree. Who hasn’t had a crush with a guy who makes you laugh?
The first time I met my husband, he already made me head over heels with his sense of humor, and he’s been my crush since then. We’ve been together for almost six years as a couple and 3 years married. He’s the funny guy anyone can fall for so I have to make sure that he sees only me. This is serious talk. I do believe that he won’t cheat on me even emotionally and he assures me that, but I do have to make sure to keep the fire burning in our relationship. This is applicable to all.
How? Always find time for each other. Date nights, conversations and get intimate. Seriously, these three are all important to keep him hooked.
I should know and I am pretty sure most moms here can relate to this: When I gave birth to Olivia, things have changed. I was so focused on Olivia that I rarely find time for my husband. Our marriage kind of went downhill (stress on the KIND OF). Because he felt compromised and unimportant. Slowly, I figured out to balance my time for him, Olivia and everything else.
Ladies, always make time for your husbands. We tend to be so busy with our kids that we sometimes forget about our significant others. Treat them like a king as you always would. It’s THAT important to men. Don’t treat them like crap. If you’ve watched Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd’s A second chance, (SPOILER ahead) remember the part where Popoy said that Basha sees him as crap. That’s when he went out with another lady.
Men want to be adored. They were made that way. And when he wants you in bed, give him what he wants. No one can withstand sex-starved relationships. Yet again, you have to make time for it.
Marriage is a lot of work. It does not end with the wedding. Marriage starts there. We have to exert a lot of effort to make it work, make it strong and make it last forever.
If you cannot go out for date nights because you’ve got no babysitter, then, Netflix could be your life-saver. Why not cook a special meal with candle lights in the living room while watching romantic films to enliven the first time you met, first time you kissed, first date, etc.
Some of the best films to watch that I personally love are:
- 10 things I hate about you
- The ugly truth
- Forgetting Sarah Marshall
- How to lose a guy in 10 days
- Set it up
- Confessions of a shopaholic
- The proposal
- The kissing booth
- When in Rome
- When we first met
And there are just literally thousands more on Netflix! What are your favorite romantic films? Care to share below?
