Romance is a beautiful thing. When you’re new in love, even the cheesiest of gestures can feel so romantic. But as the relationship ages, awkwardness starts to set in and the cheesy ‘you-complete-me’ lines start to diminish. Now that doesn’t mean you love your partner less.
It only means your infatuation has passed over and you’re now back in your senses. However, it’s a good idea to learn how to be romantic without being cheesy, so you can keep that honeymoon period alive for a little longer.
1. Give your attention
When you’re out with your partner, don’t ignore them, especially when you’re with others. Just because you’re having an interesting conversation with someone else doesn’t mean you should neglect your partner. Instead, involve your partner and make them feel like they’re the center of your world.
2. Talk about your feelings
Yes, this seems rather obvious at first. But how often do you ever come home at the end of a long day, sit close to your partner,r and talk about your day?
And how often do you ever just spend a lazy Sunday afternoon cozying up and talking about the good old days when you first met, about each other’s likes and dislike,s and about how special and important your partner is to you? Signs of affection may mean a lot in love, but staying connected plays an important role too.
3. Create memories to look back on
Memories last a lifetime. There’s nothing in the world that can feel more romantic and romance-inducing than perfect memories.
As time flies, we forget those stolen glances and those special moments that are so full of love. Create memories often, either by snapping away your cherished moments or by videotaping them.
4. Be nice to each other!
This is especially when both of you are out together. When you treat each other with love and respect, you subconsciously feel better about yourself and the relationship. And when someone’s nice to you, you can’t help but be nice back in return. This is the reason why perfect first dates are so romantic.
Go out of your way to make the other person feel special no matter how long you’ve been in a relationship with each other. It’ll make every moment feel so much more romantic and beautiful.
5. Show off your love
Love is experienced between two people, but is best experienced when the world knows all about it. As much as love may be a private moment, we’re still humans with the need to feel better about ourselves. Your partner may not care about public shows of affection, but don’t stop indulging in them.
6. Hug your partner regularly
Or kiss them when they least expect it. Have you ever felt an overwhelming rush of affection toward your partner?
Don’t stop yourself when you feel love well up inside you. If your lover’s working or cooking, walk up from behind and give them a warm hug and a kiss for no reason at all.
