Your relationship is something that is constantly growing and evolving. It needs as much attention in year 10 as much as it did in week 10. You can go on the internet and do a search and do a search on “How To Revive the Spark” and you will get 101 articles. Most of them will have the same advice, break the day to day routine, give each other your undivided attention, make time for each other and surprise each other. A romantic getaway can give you all of these and start those sparks all again.
Just thinking about a romantic vacation away with your sweetheart can lift your spirits. And talking to each other about your time away can get you both excited about the trip and start the sparks.
While on the vacation just getting away from the phone, mail, bills, work, housework, kids asking for stuff, and in-laws calling can be a mood lifter. The time alone will allow you to have conversations, and the rest comes along just like it did when you were dating.
Date each other while on this vacation. Yes, I know you are now in a long term relationship, but remember when you were dating and you put being with the other person first? Yes, you didn’t answer every little call, you didn’t need to take a selfie or picture of every little thing? You left the phone in the purse, you flirted with the other person. Maybe play a bit of footsie. Hold hands at dinner, steal a kiss on the dance floor, and of course take a few extra slow dances.
Surprise your sweetheart with a small gift or jester on your romantic getaway. Rose petals on the bed, or a bubble bath for two. Maybe a locket with your picture in it.
These ideas will get the romance going. When you get back, don’t forget to keep dating and keep the romance alive. There is one idea that I LOVE to remember the romance of your romantic getaway. While you are on your vacation write a love letter on the resort stationary, take it home and save it for your next anniversary. What a wonderful way to remember how you were feeling while you were together alone in paradise. And it can spark the flames again.
That is why I love to plan romantic getaways for my clients. It helps them get that spark back into their relationship without any of the hassle of booking the details.
Remember your romance is not a destination, it’s a journey. Love is the journey.
