7 Ways to spice up a relationship

If your relationship is not as exciting as it used to be, what can you do to spice things up? To help you out, here are seven ways to spice up your relationship, whether you been together for two years or 22.

Boredom does not have any place in the bedroom. Regardless of how long you have been together, there are some simple and fundamental rules of making a relationship last. Putting them into practice seems straightforward at first, but it isn’t always easy. 

Relationships are effortless during the initial honeymoon stages and then things inevitably start to cool down. Sexual lulls are a normal aspect of every relationship; even the most passionate and adventurous of partners suffer from boredom every now and then.

The emotional experience of a plateaued relationship can be hard to deal with but impossible to ignore, which means that things must be spiced up to avoid a total breakdown. The problem with most relationships isn’t that the passion starts to fade but it’s that couples are unprepared when the unavoidable finally happens.

The bottom line is that human beings are hardwired to crave adventure, variety, and surprise. So if your relationship is not as exciting as it used to be, what can you do to spice things up? To help you out, here are seven ways to spice up your relationship, whether you been together for two years or 22.

Introduce sex toys

Sometimes we all need a little something to get us revved up and into the mood. When you have done everything there is to do- dimming the lights, lighting the candles, playing romantic background music, and dressing up in your lingerie, you can also take out a sex toy to add a layer of adventure to the festivities.

Adding a little kink in your normal routine can help you reignite your zeal for one another. If you are not sure about adding sex toys to your routine, try shopping for some together. You can do it online or you can visit a toy store to see what’s out there. Just the act of going to an erotica filled store is a fun new activity for a couple to try.

Cook together

Food is a lot more than just nourishment; good food can evoke feelings of joy, passion, and love. When you cook together as a couple, you are making the conscious decision to spend time together, which will strengthen your bond, and deepen your friendship and relationship.

According to Kate Huber at NJGamblingFun, “Cooking together is an activity that requires total cooperation, which can help you fortify your relationship. Preparing food together is also an awesome opportunity to get to know your better half. The more you know and uncover about each other, the stronger your relationship becomes.”

Roleplay everywhere else other than the bedroom

Roleplay isn’t something that should just be relegated to the bedroom. Whenever you can, make time to go out and have special role-playing nights. Ensure that you both dress up in your best get-up and flirt as though you are meeting for the first time.

However, instead of going home, perhaps you can get a room at a local hotel where you can reignite your passion. If you like role-playing and you consider it a success, you should consider making it a monthly thing so that you can always have something to look forward to.

Break out the massage oil

At times, things can get too hectic, which can make it almost impossible to make time for lovemaking. During these dry spells, why not offer your partner a massage, complete with all the right oils. You will find that the experience will relax both of you and the intimate and gentle touching will probably lead to sex. 

Partner massage is an effortless way to demonstrate to your partner your selfless love and fondness. You also express your vulnerability during a massage, which is pertinent for fostering trust. And we all know that no relationship can work without trust. 

Do something out of the ordinary

Rules and routines are great and all, but they are also the worst killers of excitement and spontaneity. If you already know what is going to happen even before it starts, is there truly any way to get excited about it? That is why it is so important to throw in sexy surprises for your partner as a sure way to spice up the relationship.

Depending on how extreme you are willing to go, breaking a few rules can go a long way in helping to make things interesting for you. The more creative you are with your spontaneous activities and surprises, the better the relationship is bound to be.

Adding a little kink in your normal routine can help you reignite your zeal for one another.

Start sexting

Try and think about it; what was the last text you sent your significant other? While sexting may seem like a flirty thing that only individuals on Tinder do, it turns out that sexting and doing it consistently is something that can do wonders for your relationship. 

Sending your partner a steamy text can yield positive results such as improving emotional closeness. It is also an excellent way to jazz your partner up so that you can set the mood for a great day or night ahead. The brain is the body’s largest sexual organ so if you arouse it often, you are more likely to have a great relationship.

Keep sharing your desires and fantasies

As your relationship progresses, passion often starts to fade. If you want to keep things hot and sexy, take control and keep communicating with your partner. If you are bored in the relationship, chances are high that your partner is bored as well. The only way to make things exciting again is to work together.

Don’t be afraid to share with your partner new things that you would like to try in the bedroom or the relationship in general. Sharing your desires and fantasies is a sexy and fun way to stay connected to your partner so that you can keep your relationship and sex life exciting and more fulfilling.

Final Thoughts

Do you feel like your relationship has stagnated, marking time till it eventually falls apart? If so, then you need to spice up your relationship before everything comes crashing down. Sometimes after we have been together with someone for a while, it is easy to find ourselves craving the old romance that brought you together as a couple in the first place.

Fortunately, it is entirely possible to reignite the passion that you once had for each other, but it will require effort from both parties. Finding the lost spark in a relationship involves engaging in activities that can take you back to when you were both madly in love with one another. The activities and tips listed above will help you to create a little mystery and excitement so that your relationship can become spicier than ever.
