Here are seven ways to keep the flame alive in your relationship, just to get you thinking about it.
1. Continue to develop as a team.
There are several ways to accomplish this, but the first step is to develop yourself as an individual. The more you improve as an individual, the more value you add to the relationship. The relationship develops as each partner matures. Share your personal goals, dreams, and development with your partner on a regular basis. Maintain an open line of contact, debate, and discourse. Be open to change — as a community.
(Keep in mind, however, that everybody develops at their own pace.) Your growth spurts may not always coincide with those of your partner. That’s all right. Be patient, caring, and encouraging. Your method will eventually bear fruit, and both of you will benefit.)
2. Make memories with your friends.
Every day, share it with one another. Nothing is too tiny or insignificant to discuss. Of course, this can apply to family time together, with each family member sharing what they did that day. Discuss ongoing endeavors, aspirations, and ventures with your partner beyond the activities of the day. To put it another way, keep engaging your partner in the things that are most important to you on a regular basis.
Plan time together that takes you away from your daily routine on a larger scale. This could include doing things you’re both familiar with and enjoy doing together, as well as trying new things.
3. Be surprised by each other.
Everyone enjoys a pleasant surprise. Small presents, of any form, are greatly appreciated. Flowers, a surprise date, concert tickets, breakfast in bed—nearly everything that reflects special time together and shows your partner that you went above and above to make them happy. In reality, having a regular date night is a time to disconnect from your daily routine and reconnect with your partner. If you enjoy writing, love notes and/or love letters are lovely ways to share your emotions and express gratitude.
4. Express gratitude on a regular basis.
Express your gratitude to your partner for who they are and what they do. Tell them how they make you feel, how they make a difference in your life, and how they care about and help you. Being of service to each other on a daily basis in a very personal way is one of the most powerful ways to show gratitude—not only when they need you to support them or achieve something in the relationship, but on a daily basis in a very personal way. What does your partner need on an individual basis in order for them to be their best?

Also, don’t get too worked up over minor details. We’ve all developed our own habits and quirks. There are inevitably aspects of each of us that others dislike or find irritating. We just need to bring our differences/annoyances into context and let go of what isn’t really relevant.
5. Make eye contact with each other.
This can obviously be sexual, but it does not have to be. Anything that engages any and all of your senses and lets your partner knows that you’re fully present for them signals that you’re “here” with them. Kissing your partner “hello,” smiling and making eye contact, holding hands, anything that engages any and all of your senses and lets your partner know that you’re fully present for them signals that you’re “here” with them. Go to bed together, and never go to bed angry—resolve any disagreements before you sleep.
6. Try something new with your partner.
Introduce new activities and experiences that you can enjoy together, such as holidays, cultural and sports trips, seminars or lessons, spiritual practices, and so on. Learn to play bridge, golf, or take ballroom dancing lessons together. This could not only be enjoyable, but it could also give the relationship a whole new dimension. Many couples share common interests from the start of their relationship and continue to pursue them together. However, several times one partner has a particular interest or hobby and maintaining that interest or hobby is vital to them personally. However, it might be enjoyable for a partner to try their hand at what their partner finds unique and pleasurable.
7. Unplug everything.
Schedule time to withdraw from all types of electronics and social media. Make a special time away from all and everything so that intimacy is not disrupted. Except in the case of an emergency, unplug on holiday. However, make sure the time spent together at the end of the day at meals, or if you’ve agreed you need time to chat and connect, is uninterrupted. Allow nothing to take your attention away from being fully present.
