8 tricks to help you fall more deeply in love
When you first began dating, we bet it was no bog thing for you to leave your partner a love note or surprise him or her with a petite present.
1. Try something new together
Doing the same old thing day after day can dull your affections. But doing something new together releases endorphins and serotonin, the feel-good hormones essential for deep love.
When the two of you do 'new' together, you create new bonds between the two of you that no one else is a part of. This is a way to continue to grow and challenge your relationship by creating shared experiences and memories.
2. Learn your partner's love language
To fall more deeply in love, we must learn our partner's love language and then speak it at least once a day. It may be that offering a small gift tells them you love them.
Or using affirmations to let them know why they are so important to you. Maybe doing something for them that makes their day just a little easier or carving out special time just for them will say I love you in a way they can truly hear it.
3. Schedule alone time, together
Even when you're side-by-side with your spouse, it's easy to become distracted from a bustling restaurant. And distraction is a love killer, readers.
Slating time on your schedule for alone time that allows you to focus solely on one another. This is how you fell in love in the first place, and it provides the opportunity to grow that love consistently over time.See More: Marriage Tips 4 reasons to have morning sex
4. Set aside time for intimacy chats
What, exactly, is an intimacy chat? It's a long conversation where you are completely focused on one another and talk deeply about anything or nothing, who adds these talks should be during uninterrupted, unhurried down time, in a place where you won't easily be disturbed.
And with intimacy chats, you'll recreate the spark of dating on the regular. Maybe you remember doing this the first or second time you went out together, where dinner led to coffee and conversation, which led to a nightcap and more conversation, perhaps long into the night. You had so much to say and couldn't get enough of listening to everything he had to share.
