Well, as you may know or have heard, that feeling doesn’t last forever… or does it? What if I were to tell you that there were a way to maintain the fun and intimacy of the honeymoon phase no matter how long you’ve been with you s.o.?

Guess what. There is!

All it takes is a little effort, and help from the experts. As a matter of fact, you’ll be able to keep your relationship as hot and spicy as ever in as little as 7 simple steps!

Check out the list and get back to the honeymoon phase today:

Step 1: Flirt as often as possible

Flirting shouldn;t ever feel like a task, but sometimes we forget how important it is to make our loved ones feel…well, loved. Maybe it’s because we just grow accustomed to each other? “It’s human nature to take what’s consistently available to us for granted,” says (the aptly named) Ginnie Love, Ph.D., psychotherapist.

Well, just because you’ve grown used to seeing your husband or wife on a daily basis doesn’t mean the flirting has to die down. In fact, you should strive to keep your flirt muscles in shape! Try sending some flirty messages, make googly eyes over dinner, or anything to replicate that flirtatious mentality you once had when you were in the honeymoon phase.

“Keep it sexy, even if you feel too exhausted at the end of the day to frolic,” says Dr. Love. “Fun is the name of the game. Keep it lively!”

Step 2: Speak your partner’s “love language”

Experts like Marla Zeiderman, Psy.D., and licensed clinical psychologist, believe that “People speak love languages—or the ways we show and feel love—in different ways.”

If you feel like you’ve fallen into a funk or can’t seem to get back those butterflies, try communicating and figuring out what your partner cherishes most. That is, rediscover their “love language”. For some, that’s kissing or hugging. For others, that’s holding hands or cuddling. Figure out and cater to your partner’s love language!
