To really remind yourselves of why you fell in love in the first place, get out a pen and paper. That's right; We're doing this the old-fashioned way. Take an hour or a day to write out everything you love about your partner -- from his bedroom eyes and broad shoulders to his sense of humor and ability to create a great meal out of a scant three ingredients. Try to be specific and reach into your memory to pull out the traits with which you first fell in love. When you're done, exchange lists. You'll be hard pressed not to swoon just a little.
If you're feeling less than lovey-dovey lately, wander down memory lane together. Think back to your courtship, first dates, first kiss, first vacation -- you get the idea. Thinking back to what drew you together and kept you connected will help rekindle old feelings and make you look at each other like you used to: with love.
Is there a bed and breakfast you used to love? A bistro at which you shared your first meal? Think about where you've had the most fun and recreate those dates or trips. Once a month, recreate another memorable date as a way to rediscover your affection for each other and get out of your relationship rut.
Here's the scoop on putting the spark back into your relationship.
