How to maintain passion in a long-term relationship
Ladies, here are three tips for keeping the sizzle in your relationship. Now you know, lots of times with
primary relationships all that stuff starts to go out the window, but I am telling you it doesn’t have to so here
Number one, be curious. Don’t think that you know him just because you live with him and you’ve been
married for years perhaps. It doesn’t matter how long you are with someone; we are changing every single
Retain your curiosity. Be curious about what else there is to learn and it will keep a level of excitement and
create an environment in which he knows that he can continue to grow as well.
Number two key would be listen, and I don’t just mean with your ears, I mean with every part of you. You
ever go into a party or a barbeque and you arrive late you find yourself hesitating and just getting a feel for
what’s going on and where the conversation is at. Why not do the same thing every day in your relationship?
In those moments when you are sitting down and you are having dinner listen with your whole heart and
soul. If he is having a tough day; if you are having a tough day you lead by example and the more that you
listen, the more that you learn about him but at the same time, the more you listen to him the more you will
find him start listening to you.
And what’s the third key to keep the sizzle in your relationship – surprise him. Maybe there’s a time where, I
know if you have kids it gets a little bit busy but you know what, what if maybe you say, “You know what
honey, we are going to do breakfast in bed later after we put the kids to bed.” If it’s one of those days where
it’s just really, really long, surprise him; do something a little different. Just don’t allow yourself to stay in a
routine day after day after day. You won’t believe how much he will actually respond to that and how good it
will make you feel too.
