5 Ways to Put the Spark Back in Your Relationship


Relationships can sometimes resemble a roller coaster. One minute you’re on an extreme high and the next you’re going downhill. Then there’s always a chance that at some point your relationship suddenly comes to a standstill; the spark in your relationship has diminished a little bit. Maybe you’ve been too busy with your job or maybe you’ve just drifted apart. The love you have for your partner hasn’t decreased, but something just seems off.

If you ever find yourself in this situation, don’t fret. This happens to the best of us and if you are still very much in love with your partner, you need to fight for your relationship. There are a number of things you can try to get your relationship back where it needs to be.


The first thing you should always do is talk out your problems with your loved one. Odds are they will feel the same way and want to do whatever they can to rectify the situation. If you’re both in love with each other, you’ll want to get your healthy relationship back. Talking it out may shed light on where you guys went wrong and help you to avoid making the same mistakes twice.

Schedule Date Nights

More now than ever, it’s important to spend time with your partner. If you feel like you’ve been drifting apart, take this extra time together to reconnect. Stay in one night and have a movie marathon or go back to the place where you first met. Take some time to work on that project you’ve been putting off. Whatever you’re doing, make sure it’s something you can enjoy together.

Take a Trip

Have you always dreamed of going somewhere, but never had the time to plan it? Why not make that dream a reality? It doesn’t have to be a huge trip; even a weekend getaway can bring you guys closer together. The important thing is to spend some time alone away from home and all the stresses of life.

Take a Trip…to the Bedroom

Help reignite the spark in your relationship by reigniting your sex life. If your relationship issues took a toll on your sex life, take this time to put it back in action. The physical intimacy will deepen your emotional relationship and make you both a lot happier.

Return to Romance

Surprise your love with a gift or a even just a peck on the cheek when they least expect it. Again, it doesn’t matter what you do, but do whatever you can to try to keep the romance going. Take it back to the early days in your relationship when you were both trying to impress and woo each other. If you keep the romantic component of your relationship alive and well, you’re actively working to avoid another rough patch.
