Looking for a bit of romance?
Whether you’re in a long-distance relationship, single and ready to mingle, or looking to spice up your long-term relationship, you’ll be pleased to hear that there are PLENTY of things you can do to ensure romance is on the cards for 2022!
Here are some great examples to get you started!
Work on your communication.
A recent study found that the secret to a healthy and long-lasting relationship is the four C’s – that is, communication, compromise, connection, and commitment. Without these ground blocks, your relationship could be heading for trouble from the word go. Furthermore, there’s a reason that communication is listed first, as it’s often the most important component to your romantic ventures. As a result, if you want 2022 to be the most romantic year yet – it’s time to work on your communication.
- If you don’t get to spend every day together, then set aside some time each day to speak over the phone.
- Surprise your partner with sweet, thoughtful texts that let them know you are thinking of them throughout the day. If you aren’t sure where to get started, here are some great examples of texts to make her melt.
- If something is bothering you, talk about it. Don’t let negativity boil up inside you, as this will only lead to anger and resentment. Speaking candidly about your feelings will allow you to work through any issues you are facing together.
Date Nights are Mandatory.
When you first started dating your partner, you probably had all the time in the world for each other. However, as things progress, you probably don’t make the same amount of effort you once did when it came to spending quality time together. Date nights are replaced by arguing about whose doing the washing up or whose turn it is to have the TV remote . While this can be a sign of comfort, you shouldn’t let the dates die out either. One way you can combat this is by making date nights part of your monthly schedule. Remember, dates don’t always need to be OTT. For example, you could watch romantic movies or take turns to cook each other romantic meals.
Work on yourself, too.
To be a good partner, we also have to be in a good position ourselves. This is because dating requires a certain level of maturity, compassion, and understanding – and if we are going through our own problems, it’s harder to support others. It could also lead to issues with communication further down the line. As a result, if you want romance in 2022 – it’s time to start focusing on YOU. Furthemore, by focusing on self-care, you’ll also be learning to love yourself more – and if there’s something the world needs, it’s more self-love. This can help you set clearer standards for your relationship, as you’ll find it much easier to know your worth.
