Making relationships work and keeping the romance on is a task for both partners.

Making relationships work and keeping the romance on is a task for both partners.

It's really all about working on a formula that makes sense to both of you and committing to it.

Here are some ideas on where to start:

1. Stay intellectually stimulated

Do what keeps you intellectually on your toes and share that with your partner.

2. Be active

Don't let sex be the only physical activity you have, take a walk or a jog, go for dance classes - anything that keeps your heartbeat up.

3. Be romantic

Do  those things you know your partner loved when the two of you were still courting, revisit some of your most exciting experiences together.

4. Cook together

This is a sure way to have fun and nurture one another all at once.

5. Gift an experience

Take your partner to his/her favourite artist's concert instead of the usual dinner and home time gig.

6. Be spontaneous

Closely linked to the above point, while routine is comforting at times, stepping out of that comfort can prove to be just what you and your love need.

7. Inspire each other

Share in one another's dreams, aspirations and vision for the future. Be as interested in his/her vision as you are in yours as they're meant to become one.

8. Laugh it up

Have FUN! Don't lose who you were before you got serious about each other, that's why you fell in love to begin with!
