Sometimes when people have been in a relationship for a while they’re under the impression that the hard work is done and that things are secure with their sweethearts, when in fact the opposite is true. Complacency is a relationship killer because it can cause boredom and loss of attraction.
Here are a few tips to avoid this:
Don’t be lazy:
Ladies and Gentlemen, would you like it if your partner had sex with you in the first month of the relationship then just stopped out of the blue? – No
Then make sure the things you did in the beginning of your relationship stay consistent throughout your relationship. Why? – Because those combination of things, whether they were taking time to pick out the right dress shirt, wearing that special fragrance, making sure the hair and nails were well done, giving massages to show affection, or enjoying an evening stroll with your loved one, were probably the things that helped you to win your lover’s heart. So why mess with a winning formula?
It’s easy to fall into complacency when you are into a longterm relationship.
Don’t “let yourself go”:
While it’s nice to be loved for who you are, and not how you look, remember what attracted you to each other in the beginning. You don’t have to join a gym to stay fit. Just throw on your running shoes and get out there even if its only for 30 minutes. You get the benefits of keeping yourself fit and making sure you’re the apple of your lover’s eyes. You don’t have to have the physique of an American gladiator. But at least give your partner the impression you’re not a bum. Making the effort to exercise counts for something.
Don’t stop complimenting:
Guys, even when your lover knows that you think they’re beautiful, your partner still wants to hear it from time to time. Compliment your beloved on the things they do well. If they dress nicely let them know, especially if they’re wearing a new outfit. Compliment the body parts you find attractive, even if they are the same body parts you’ve been complimenting for weeks, months, or years. The point is that it still makes your partner feel like they’re wanted by you.
