Keeping the love alive in a relationship takes work. While the initial sparks may fly with no effort, over the long haul, it takes creativity and initiative to make things work.
Step outside of your comfort zone. Don't do things because they're routine or expected.
Whether you're sending her flowers for no reason or giving him a massage, you send the message that you care. You tell the person that you're not waiting for the perfect "moment" to come along – you live (and love) in the present tense.
We met Max and Mindy at the beginning of this series of articles. You'll remember that Mindy was feeling restless. Max knew that in order to keep her, he needed to step it up.
He started by planning a weekend escape doing all of the things she enjoyed (including antique shopping which he could have done without). The next week, he wrote her a love letter.
Mindy’s interest was sparked. She, in turn, wanted to start doing things for Max. She suggested going to a new French restaurant rather than grabbing a pizza one weekend. For his birthday, she gave him two tickets to the WWF – and said she'd go along with him and didn't even make a funny face when she told him.
As they began to be more creative in their relationship, it spurred the other one to reciprocate. They stopped feeling like they were in a rut. Instead of being in a "go no where" relationship, all of a sudden, the spark was lit. Things began to get exciting and they started to talk about the future.
If you love someone but feel like your relationship is stuck, un-stick it. You have the power to shake things up by thinking outside of the box.
I've given you a number of suggestions in this series of articles for how to do that. But you should think about your particular situation and the person you love. What would make him or her happy? How can you do the unexpected to get a response that will move your relationship forward?
I guarantee you that if you go out on a limb, something will change in your relationship.
