If you are intent on keeping that romance alive, it doesn’t decrease.
The big mistake that many people make is in becoming complacent and misunderstanding how love and relationships work.
It is natural for you to come back down to earth after a period of time in a relationship.
You can’t always be on cloud 9.
It would be like watching a movie that is all climax.
You can’t watch a movie that is all climax and truly enjoy it.
At some point, you are going to need a breather.
Hence, there is nothing wrong with going through a honeymoon phase and realizing that your excitement has decreased.
This is natural and shouldn’t be feared.
However, the romance doesn’t have to decrease in the relationship just because the honeymoon phase is over.
Where people go wrong is when they feel that simply because they are no longer as excited as they once were, they should ease off on the romance and become complacent.
They may make this decision consciously or not but they do act it out.
The romance in your relationship should always be kept alive and flourishing.
This doesn’t mean that you have to go all out all the time and do things that are really extravagant.
In other words, you don’t need to have a romantic horse drawn carriage ride every time or an expensive dinner.
Romance doesn’t always have to be this elaborate.
In fact, some of the most effective romance is very simple and straightforward.
Romance can be a quiet evening with some wine and fun conversation.
Yes, it can be that easy.
What would this all require?
A quick stop at the wine or grocery store, a trip home and a conversation.
Yes, it can be something this simple.
Once the honeymoon phase ends in a relationship, a lot of partners forget the importance of conversation.
They just stop talking to each other.
They talk “at” each other instead of “to” each other.
This is where a lot of couples fail and begin to see the romance in their relationship decrease.
Conversation is a very important part of a relationship.
Good conversation helps to maintain a strong connection which tends to keep the romance alive in a relationship.
Romance can also be as simple as reading to each other.
This is a practice that a lot of couples are unaware can keep the romance alive in a relationship.
If there is a particular kind of literature that you both like, read it to each other.
This creates an incredible romantic connection between the both of you.
You get to listen to each other’s voice. The sound of your partner’s voice is incredibly powerful.
It creates a sense of togetherness and can be soothing.
After a while, it isn’t so much about the words that they are saying but how the sound of your partner’s voice makes you feel.
This creates a potent romantic connection that stays with you for days, weeks or more.
Again, this is only reading to each other.
It didn’t require much effort from you other than grabbing the piece of literature and opening your mouth.
Keeping the romance alive with your partner can be this simple.
You don’t have to overcomplicate it.
You don’t have to do something so elaborate and difficult to put together.
The most effective romance can easily be the stuff that takes very little effort to put together.
This is what is meaningful.
This is what helps you get through the immediate low when your honeymoon phase is over. From here, the romance stays alive and grows even stronger.
