After people have been together for a while, there is a tendency to address the priorities of daily life that take up so much of their time.

Being aware of the necessity of the attention to each other is the first step in reigniting the reasons that you chose to be together.

Date Time

You may have heard about setting aside ‘date time’ and it is something that you can do to demonstrate your attention to each other and the commitment that you have made. Choose something fun that you both enjoy, without the requirement of high expense. Make a vow to establish a specific time within the week and do everything that you can to ensure that it is met.

The goal is to accomplish something that is totally for the other, without you benefiting from it. Keeping the romance in a relationship might be a challenge, but as you will find out, it is so worth it.
