Fast Ways to Spice Up Your Dates
Some romances start with a bang—flowers, intense conversations and surprise dates—but then quickly melt into a relationship rut. Sure, you’re still into your guy, but comfort can quickly replace the sizzle and pop that ignited your attraction.
Don’t worry, there’s nothing wrong with your relationship, you just need a few sparks to rekindle the fire that’s right under your nose. Here are ways to help bring a little sexy back home.
Sneak a wink in public or flash a white smile at him from across a room—because a cute, bright smile always catches a man’s eye. Secret nudges and hand squeezes that others can't see are other simple sparks that can keep those romantic flames flying high.
Whispers Sweet Somethings
You've probably said plenty of hot things during a heated night, so why not take it out to when you're at dinner or a party. When he does something that brings a little light to your eye, quietly let him know. He'll love the fact that you still think he's hot, and that could pay off later when you're back home.
Groom for Your Guy
It’s great that your relationship is at a point where you’re comfortable zoning out in front of the TV on a Saturday morning, wrapped in your favorite old t-shirt, and sporting a major case of bed-head with your morning coffee. Nevertheless, you still want to have nice hair, wear something cute, and have a white, fresh smile. Keep things neat to show him you still care about the both of you.
Plan a night once a week that the two of you dedicate to the most important thing in your relationship—each other. Have dinner at a restaurant with an intimate atmosphere, or check out that romantic comedy everyone’s talking about. Go out to one of your favorite spots or take a chance on something new that neither one of you has tried before. Whatever you decide, you’ll be spending quality time together and that’s one of the most important building blocks of any relationship.
Whether its tickets to a sporting event or a candlelight dinner at home, keep him on his toes with a sweet surprise he’ll never see coming. Maybe a hand-written note secretly stashed in his jacket pocket or a text that says, “I <3 you…” for no other reason than “just because.” It’s a simple, wonderful way to express your feelings through action.
A little pampering goes a long way. A genuine compliment, soothing back rub, or his favorite dinner will remind him that you still think he’s number one. Cleaning his car, pressing a shirt, or doing any practical chore for him will make his life a little easier and remind him that he’s got a great guy in his life as well.
You obviously care about him, so let him know. Compliment his looks, his honesty, or just let him know you appreciate him. Sometimes we assume the other guy knows, but a few simple words can really bring the point home. Romance is always fantastic, but an ego stroke will perk a man up better than any amount of cocktails or chocolates.
