Getting into a relationship is easy but with each passing year, maintaining it becomes quite tricky. You surely love your partner but are they completely aware? Maybe not. In a relationship, it’s important that you convey your feelings to your partner to avoid any sort of miscommunication and other issues.

And for that, you need to spend some quality time with each other. Spending quality time with your spouse goes beyond just sitting while watching your favorite show or eating together. It is more about making them feel special.

Here’s how you can do that. 


Take Them for a Date Night Under the Stars 

Too romantic? It is, that’s why you should definitely try this out. You must have gone together for typical dinner nights but try something different this time. Take your partner to any modern Italian restaurant where there’s an open dine-in setting under the stars and treat them to a memorable night to take back home. You may wish to book a table in advance just to avoid any last-minute issues.

Express Your Feelings 

Now that you are having dinner together under the stars, make the moment more special by expressing your feelings. No matter at which stage you’re in your relationship, there’s always something to talk about.

Make sure your partner knows about your thoughts, feelings, or any other concern that you have. Also, don’t forget to urge them to express their part of the story too. These kinds of conversations will help you build a stronger understanding of each other.

How About Cooking Together?

Dump the thought that only women go to the kitchen! There are many examples of young couples where both partners cook and help each other. Spending time cooking together could build a solid bond between you two.

No worries if you don’t know anything about cooking. Ask your partner to help you learn and you will love their astonishing reaction! It will be hard for them to grasp this new request at first but you make sure they take you seriously.

Go to the Gym Together

This might sound easy when both partners are gym freaks and normal couples might find this hard to try. But you see, that is exactly why you need to work out together. Research suggests that couples who work out together are more likely to follow their fitness routine than couples who hit the gym solo.

Become workout partners and you will end up being each other’s support. What could be better than promoting a healthy habit together?

Watch a New Show Together

If you are a modern young couple, you might already do this often. But middle-aged and older couples might not be much proactive when it comes to watching shows together. Whenever you get free time, ask your partner if they would be interested in binge-watch a movie or show with you.

And if they say ‘No’, don’t take that seriously and make them sit with you. This would also light a spark in your relationship. Watching a show together will give you memories filled with talks, laughter and intimate moments.

Learn from Each Other

This is very important. Learn something from each other every day. Be it how to talk, how to state your point of view, or how to show care – build the habit of conscious learning. And learning is as important as teaching is.

Observe each other and if you feel there’s something that could be improved, don’t hesitate to put forward your suggestions. This might hurt the next person in very rare cases, so make sure you’re being kind while suggesting something.

Plan a Special Vacation

When was the last time you went on a special vacation with your partner? Trying new things in a relationship is very crucial to maintain that spark which normally fades away with time. Got the next weekend free?

Plan a surprise visit to your partner’s favorite place or a new setup where you both have been wanting to visit. Oh and don’t forget to capture your partner’s surprising reaction when you land on the vacation place.

Talk about Your Insecurities 

Everybody faces insecurities. Your partner might not tell you everything that’s bothering them. Initiate conversations that bring up topics like insecurities, problems, priorities and so much more depending on your personal equation with your partner. Talk about these things, you never know how you might end up helping each other.

Also, a bond between two people builds over time. Don’t rush if things aren’t working out in the short term. Give your relationship time and talk over things to understand each other better.

Spend Some Romantic Time Together

Whether you see your partner everyday or you barely get the time to go on date night, intimacy is what maintains that ‘Spark’ in a relationship. Surprise your partner in the most unexpected ways. It could be as simple as giving them a good night and morning kiss every day. You can also ask them to give you a head massage saying that you just want to feel their touch. You might think all this to be way too romantic, but these efforts will surely make your partner feel special.

 Keep it Simple

And, keep things simple and sorted. Don’t expect your partner to do fancy things for you just because you saw a new Instagram trend going viral. This also means not forcing your partner to perform activities that they absolutely take no interest in. Accept each other in the most simple ways. This will help you sustain your relationship for a longer time!

Bottom Line

Nourishing and maintaining a healthy relationship needs a little bit of elbow grease from time to time. If you feel you are not able to give your partner enough time, be sorry and make time to talk over things. Try the above-mentioned tips and you will surely end up having an unforgettable time with your loved one.
