Those were the days my friend—we thought they’d never end.
We’ve all been there. The start of a relationship. That crackling, electric time when you can’t help but just soak up every drop of your new infatuation and every private moment is spent in the throes of passion.
Until it’s one year, five years, 10 years (or more) later. You’re now more concerned about whether he or she picked up toothpaste from the store rather than what position you want to try tonight.
You know which foods give him or her gas. You’re harboring a secret (or-not-so-secret) resentment towards his or her cleaning habits. The mystery has shifted to TMI.
But you still love your partner. You still think they are gorgeous and awesome and you want to rekindle the spark.
So what do you do?
Of course, simply admitting the truth that you are both hungering for more intimacy (as well as any other withheld communications) is a huge step towards increasing the turn-on, but where do you go from there?
In the following video, I’ll share with you 4 of my favorite tips to help rekindle the passion in your long-term relationship.
