Getting the spark back has to begin with you.
You have to set an example to your partner by inviting them to try something new with you or encouraging them to start looking at your relationship in a different way.
Many relationships run into the problem that you are currently experiencing.
They reach a point in their relationship where everything simply becomes too mundane and monotonous.
As a result, no one really cares about making any experience exciting because they are complacent in their relationships.
This tends to lead to arguments and disappointment in the relationship.
You don’t have to get to this point.
In order to get the spark back, start taking chances in your relationship.
Do something together that the both of you have never done.
Allow yourselves to experience something fresh and new.
You could apply this to any facet of your relationship.
If the both of you tend to go to the same place to hang out and socialize, go somewhere else.
If the both of you tend to hang around the same friends, make new ones.
If the both of you tend to talk about the same boring topics over and over again, start talking about something new.
Putting the spark back could start with something as simple as addressing each other in a different way when you see each other on a new day.
You could change what you call each other.
Perhaps go from calling each other generic terms like “Honey” to calling each other more interesting and unique nicknames.
Putting the spark back could even be a change in your morning routine.
If you tend to wake up at the same time every morning and stumble to the bathroom to prepare for work, how about changing it up.
Wake up a little earlier together and go on a walk together.
This simple task of waking up a little earlier and doing something together could make a world of difference in your relationship.
How about starting to cook something different for each other in the morning?
Instead of sticking with the same old cereal or scrambled eggs and toast, how about making a ham and cheese omelette roll or making a breakfast casserole?
Yes, something as simple as changing your morning routine could actually put a spark back into your relationship.
It gives the both of you something to look forward to.
Also, a very effective way to put the spark back into your relationship is to start allowing yourselves the opportunity to grow as individuals.
In other words, start giving each other some space.
Many couples think that being in a relationship means that they have to be together at all times.
When they are always together and continue to engage in the same mundane activities, they never give themselves the opportunity to grow as individuals.
Being a unique and dynamic individual in a relationship is important.
When you encourage each other to take the time out to pursue your own individual passions or hobbies, it gives the both of you something new to talk about and allows you to infuse some energy into your romantic relationship.
When you are both feeling like you are individually growing, it becomes infectious.
It gives the both of you a new outlet and allows your relationship to breath.
When your relationship can breath, it can survive. It can start having new life.
You will both be curious about each other and want to learn more about what the other person is doing.
This creates a spark that can stay alive for a very long time as long as you both continue giving yourselves the room to grow as unique individuals.
It also helps to keep the relationship unpredictable in a good way because you will continue to discover new things about each other on a frequent basis.
