As most of you are aware, it's not easy to maintain a "stable relationship" (this term refers to an emotional balance, not an affinity for barnyard animals). But there are only so many times you can use those three little words before they start to lose their charm.
As an experienced, charming, and darn-right impressive lover, I'm here to guide you back on track with some pointers.
It's true that actions speak louder than words, so put your hand in your pocket and treat your loved one. This applies to both men and women alike:
The cinema is a casual way to kill a couple of hours but isn't it a little too easy? I mean whilst you're sat there wondering why your partner hasn't looked at you yet, the pre-pubescent dork behind you is hell-bent on kicking a hole into the back of your chair. In theatre there is more than just a screen. There is a chance to get reeled into the euphoria of the performance, and you'll likely get more than a peck on the cheek for the thought.
2 - Take Her Dancing
Admittedly more of a head-nod towards the guys, it could be a good idea to let her ambitious side make an appearance. Can't dance? Take her to dancing lessons. Even if you're not the next John Travolta, she will appreciate the effort. Plus, you get to see her move those hips - enough said.
It's very rare that anybody writes an article about love without bringing sex into the equation (God knows I've tried). This is a special tip, considering it's a treat to you both as a couple. It also summons a more personal feel to the relationship and it's - well, it's sexy underwear.

You can probably see this playing out nicely in your mind. She gets home from a hard day at the office, she drops her handbag to the floor and slips off her awkwardly uncomfortable heeled shoes, sighs and makes her way down the hallway - "WAIT!
What was that?" Her eye catches the photo in a gorgeous mirrored frame and she beams a beautiful smile. As a token of her gratitude, she could take you to theatre and then throw on some naughty underwear! She may even take you dancing, as no good deed goes unpunished.
Probably the most traditional of ideas. Anybody can throw some chicken dippers in the oven but why not put your heart into it? They deserve it, right? Go out, buy some recipe books, and slave over a hot stove. It doesn't have to be lobster but try to be creative. Effort is proof that we care!
So, there it is. If these ideas don't appeal to you then I hope they have given you some inspiration of your own.
