Romantic Tips - Keeping Romance Alive

You've been in a relationship for quite some time and you notice that the romance that was so abundant in the early days is fading fast. You know that you've got to act fast because your relationship is heading for disaster. What can you do to bring back that romantic flare?

It all starts with one simple step! Start putting your partner first in all things that you do. This is one of the most romantic things that you can do for your partner.

Examples:

1. Your partner is sick and has decided to take the day off from work to rest and heal. You surprise him/her and stay home to care for them, tending to their every need. When my husband did this for me just a couple of weeks ago, I was so appreciative and it is something that I will never forget.

2. You meet someone at work that you really like. Think what your partner would think about this person. While it is okay to have friends that our partners do not like, it is always better to consider your partners' feelings before you jump into a friendship with someone else, since our partner is our closest friend. Consider why your partner wouldn't like this person or why he/she would.

When it's all said and done, thinking of your partners' feelings before you do or say anything is one of the most romantic things you can do. After all, romance is at its very nature showing a person that you love them and what can say it more than putting them first in all things you do.
