Here are some suggestions on how to feel more connected with your partner and ways to rekindle love in your relationship:
1. Communicate your feelings
At a time when you’re together and have the freedom to talk, simply tell your partner that you have something to discuss with them.
For connecting with your spouse, tell them how you’re feeling and how much you truly want to change things.
Reach out in love, without blame or judgment, and simply let your partner know that you don’t want things to continue the way they have been.
Tell them how much you miss the romance and connection that you’re lacking. Take a chance and make that connection. Reach for their hand, and embrace them with a kiss that lets them know you’re serious.
2. Plan a romantic dinner
Set up a romantic dinner and seduction. Don’t play or be coy; simply be direct and let your partner know that you want to rekindle romance, and you want to begin now.
Dress to impress and have all the trappings, food, wine, and soft music. Make no mistake, this is adult behavior, and you are letting your partner know that you’ve been missing your connection.
Two people in love need to have a physical connection. If this has been missing in your life, there’s no time like the present to remedy that.
3. Increase your physicality
If a romantic dinner is a bit drastic way to rekindle romance, you can take it more slowly by starting over in smaller increments.
Begin with non-sexual touch, holding hands, hugging, a back rub, or foot rub. Begin increasing your physicality with each other and work your way back to romantic and sexual interaction.
