Some great tips for We-Vibe on how to keep the intimacy alive in your relationship…

Life is busy. It’s easy to put the million little things you need to do each day ahead of your partner. Maybe you’ve started taking each other for granted. Maybe the kids are draining all of your energy. Maybe you’ve simply slipped into a rut.

None of these scenarios are unusual. When intimacy starts to fade between you and your partner, you may begin to feel irritable and under-appreciated. Before you know it, arguments are sure to follow.

By following a few simple steps, you can not only strengthen your relationship, but no doubt feel a spring in your step in other areas of life as well.

1. Make it a date night

This is an oldie, but a goodie. There’s a reason you’ve heard this advice before: it works.

Set a time, get a babysitter and make a break for it on a regular basis. It doesn’t have to be weekly; putting aside the time even just once a month to enjoy each other will make a huge difference. You will come back home with fresh eyes and your relationship will benefit from it.

2. Show some appreciation

Simple acts of gratitude for your partner can often get lost amidst the day-to-day hustle and bustle of life. It is important, however, to stop to say thank you every once in a while. It doesn’t have to be bunches of flowers, or expensive gifts; a hug or a simple word of thanks can be just as meaningful.

Try to find something every day, no matter how small, to compliment them on. You will be surprised at how far a ‘thanks for dinner’ or ‘thank you for taking the bins out’ will get you!

3. Share a laugh

Couples that laugh together stay together, right? Don’t forget to laugh with each other. It can bring you closer together than almost anything else.

Find ways to be playful and look for ways to giggle. Humor fosters creativity, which all good relationships need to thrive. Watch a comedy together, share a daggy joke, and try to remember those old things that sparked your relationship in the first place. After all, life isn’t meant to be taken too seriously.

4. It takes two

When it comes to intimacy in the bedroom, remember that it takes two. Nothing kills the mood like routine, so don’t be afraid to try new things with your partner to help you re- connect. Taking things outside of your comfort zone in the bedroom will bring you closer together and give you another experience to share as a couple.

Trying a product like the We-Vibe 4 can help reignite that sexual spark. The We-Vibe offers mutual pleasure for both partners in a non-threatening way, so it can be a perfect fit even for those couples that may be nervous about adding sex toys into the mix.

5. Free up space

Don’t be afraid to say no to the things that drain your energy. If little things are continuously bringing you down, or those around you are always making you miserable, it’s going to impact how you relate to your partner and those you love. It can be hard, but it is important to let those things go!

Try to limit the stressful things and people in your life. This is easier said than done of course, but the more stressors you can eliminate outside of your relationship, the more mental bandwidth you’ll have to deal with problems within it.

    Great article. Hubs and I try to do date night as often as possible, it really does help! It’s easy to forget what it’s like with just the two of you when kids come along.

    Affection is important, and doing little treats for each other unexpectantly is lovely too.
