It’s a super simple one, but often gets overlooked all the time.
Plan a weekly date night!
It’s simple, just one night that is permanently reserved for just the two of you to reconnect, spend time together, and appreciate each-other. Book the evening off entirely from work, and school, and everything else in your calendar so there are no distraction.
Get ready in different rooms of the house/apartment, and really put in a conscious effort into dressing up, putting on something sexy, and looking your best. Even if you’re just staying in and watching a movie, sure wear comfy sweat pants, but put something sexy on underneath for your partner to discover. If you’re getting all dolled up, don’t let the other person see you until you’re done and ready to wow them!
If you’re having trouble, alternate who’s planning it and depending on your budget set a general ratio of dates staying in to dates going out. Like every third date has to be going out and doing something.
So the first two dates would be staying in, drinking hot chocolate, cuddling up and watch a movie, or making dinner together/surprising partner with dinner. And then the third date would be something like heading to a salsa hall, or out for dinner, or to a local beach/lookout spot for a picnic and being romantic. Just something to get out of the house and create new memories and stories.
