Secrets On How To Keep Your Love Alive

By: Jason Roberts

There are those that you don't need to think about how to keep your love alive, or even do anything about it. Some think that love just keeps on going and going and going, just like the Eveready Bunny.

But remember, even that little pink bunny rabbit had to be recharged sometimes. So, then, does your love.

Here, then, are some pointers on how to keep your love alive.

The first thing you want to do is add a little excitement now and then. Pretend it's your first date and dress and bathe and act accordingly. Don't assume because she loves you she won't care that you're slovenly or don't listen to his stories.

Change the old routines a little, liven up your schedule. Add a little excitement, a little romantic night on the town, a cozy winter's night by the fireplace in a cabin in the woods for the weekend.

Set aside one day a week, or at least every two weeks for a few hours alone together, with absolutely no interruptions.

Be spontaneous.

Put your partner back on the pedestal you had her or him on when you first fell in love. Be realistic of course, but focus on his or her unique gifts.

How to keep your love alive is to remind yourself that your partner is special. Buy yourself a journal or a notebook. Write down what he or she does each day that makes him or her sweet or loving or special in your eyes. Write down as well how you felt about your mate when you first met. Look at how those things still exist.

How to keep your love alive is to let your love inside your head and your heart. If you find yourself criticizing, stop. Even if your complaint is valid, it's often about a minor detail that can be overlooked. After all, keeping your love alive isn't minor.

Understanding both of your expectations and realizing what can and can't be fulfilled – what is and isn't realistic is part of how to keep your love alive as well. Sometimes we have disappointments in our life that we blame on our partner, and it's really our own failures – or caused by outside forces.

Sometimes we fixate on what we didn't get to the point that we're unable to see what gifts we do have. Focusing on the positive things that have come from our relationship is part of how to keep your love alive.

Another realization that's important as well, is that our mates, our partners, our spouses are not responsible for our own happiness. We are responsible for our happiness. Putting too much responsibility on our partners to make us happy is not fair and a hefty burden for her or him to carry.

Making a happy and fulfilled bit of life outside of your relationship with your mate is part of how to keep your love alive as well.
