01 # Be spontaneous
When you have been in a relationship for a while, you and your partner tend to fall into a routine. You become used to doing the same thing and this makes your relationship predictable, hence boring.
Try to shake things up and surprise each other with spur-of-the-moment plans to add variety to your relationship.
02 # Keep the mystery
In a relationship, one wants to feel comfortable around their partner, however there has to be a few insignificant things you and your partner don't know about each other.
03 # Be adventurous
"A couple that plays together, stays together". You do not have to be an adrenaline junky in order to have a little adventure with your partner. Go hiking, sailing, jogging, camping or whatever you two like to spend doing together.
This way, you and your partner experience different sides of each other.
04 # Try new things together
Sometimes, trying new things in a relationship keeps the spark alive. You experience new things together and also get to know your partner more. This way you get to know what they like or dislike.
05 # Secrets of sexting
The concept of sexting can be thought of as crude or unflattering, however when you and your partner text each other sexy little text messages as a way to spice the relationship and your sex life, then there can't be any harm to it.
Just make sure that you're both comfortable with it and not offend each other. That could be awkward.
06 # Keep the romance alive

09 # Fighting and making up
Having a good fight with your partner (when it's necessary) can do wonders for your relationship.

It will just lead to resentment and an eventual break-up, besides, making up after a fight can be quite fun.
In order for a relationship to work, you need to put in all the necessary amount of work to keep it fresh, exciting and new. Try it, who knows, it might be the best thing you can do for your love life.
