When life gets busy for you and your partner, romance likely isn’t at the top of your to-do list. August is romance awareness month, so now is the time to move romance up the list! Keeping the romance alive is vital to the happiness of not only your relationship but each of you as individuals too.
- Movie Date
A movie date is a great way to bring romance back without any pressure. Either take a trip to the theater or rent a movie to enjoy at home. You’ll be close to your partner, mutually enjoying an activity. Make some popcorn, have a glass of wine, and enjoy!
- Take a Walk Together
If a date night isn’t going to fit into your schedule any time soon, find the time to fit in a short walk with your partner. Taking a 20-minute walk at the end of the workday is a great way to communicate and connect with your partner. Stick to the routine of walking after work and you will both be able to look forward to it each day.
- Spend Time Together Without Doing Anything
Sometimes, sharing quiet time alone together is the type of romance you need. Use the time to discuss your thoughts and feelings, or silently enjoy their company. Setting time aside to do nothing with your partner is extremely romantic.
- Dinner Date
The classic dinner date is a wonderful way to get out of the house and catch up with your partner. You will both be able to get dressed up, get into a social environment, and talk over a delicious meal. If you have trouble planning dates, pick a day each week that’s your dedicated dinner date night.
- Take a Class
Classes are an underrated romance idea. Take a cooking class, a painting class, or even a pottery class! You and your partner will get to come out of your comfort zone and bond with one another as you learn a new skill. Cooking or painting with your partner will be fun, but it’s sure to be sensual as well.
Romance is something that takes a little bit of work and planning and that’s okay! Relationship success is dependent on both people being able to feel loved, appreciated, and understood by their partner. Celebrating romance is all about finding new ways to keep the romance alive no matter how much time has passed.
