Once the first flush of romance has passed, all relationships lose their sparkle and passion.

And, if you don’t do something about it, you can easily become strangers and problems can surface.

So check out our┬átop tips to enable you to reconnect with each other and put some life back into your relationship…

1. Kiss each other

It’s one of the most intimate things you can do with your clothes on and will help to maintain and build up the romantic bond between you

2. Leave notes for each other

Get a pack of sticky notes and write little messages you can leave where your loved one will find them. We’re not talking about ones that say: ‘Remember to take the bins out’

3. Go away together

Sometimes, it takes some distance and time together to remind you how much you love and enjoy each other’s company. Get someone to look after the kids and get away for a night or weekend, where you can just do fun things together that you can never do at home.

4. Have a power cut

Imagine that the juice is cut off for a night. This means no TV, no music, no lights. Just you, your partner, some candles and conversation.

5. Cook your favourite meals

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Well, maybe it’s not quite that easy, but cooking his favourite food shows how much you care.
