Romantic resolutions for the new year

It’s the new year. And that’s the perfect time to set some goals and resolutions. If you’ve been feeling like your relationship with your significant other could do with some refreshing, now might be the time for some romantic resolutions.

Being in a relationship means working at it daily. You need to choose to be with your significant other. Choosing to work at it by adopting romantic resolutions means you’re invested in your relationship and are committed to seeing it succeed. Here are some ideas for resolutions to try over the course of this year.


Spend quality time together daily

Spending time with your significant other daily is a major commitment. And this is not sitting on the couch and staring at your phone time. This is legitimate time together. This is sharing a meal and conversation. It’s looking into each other’s eyes and remembering why you fell in love. It’s reminiscing about your first dates when everything was new and exciting.


Decide to discuss a relationship issue

Sometimes, the most important thing you can do for your relationship is make time to discuss an issue. Whether you’re arguing about whether or not to have children, about how to spend money or who deals with certain household chores, this is the time to discuss an issue. And you’re not necessarily going to solve the issue right away. But talking about it is the first step.


Make time for sex

Having sex often is an essential part of your relationship. It’s important that you resolve to have sex often – the kind of sex that’ll remind you of those early days when you couldn’t keep your hands off of each other. It’ll also remind you of how far you’ve come as a couple. As you grow as a couple, you’ll no doubt have learned more about what your partner likes. You know what they’re into and what they’re not. You know whether they’re up to being adventurous and experimenting with role play or sex toys. And, sometimes, adding something new and exciting to your sex life could be just the thing you need to spice things up.


Plan a romantic weekend away

There’s nothing like a weekend away to put the spark back into a long-term relationship. When you’re at home, your conversations are likely focused on your children and house. You spend your time discussing who’s going to pick the kids up and who’s turn it is to clean the kitchen. What you don’t do is enjoy time together as a couple. And that’s essential. You need to see each other in a relaxed situation, far from home and the realities of life to remember why you love each other. Seeing each other in this situation will help you to remember the person you first got together with.


Try new things

Trying new things together is another excellent way to put the spark back into your relationship. You could try taking cooking classes, going skydiving, finding a new favourite TV show to watch or even taking a walk around the block. Whatever it is, just be sure it’s something you’ve never done together before. It could make you see your partner in a new light. It could encourage you to see a side to your partner which you’d never seen before. And it will give you something fun to talk about as you remember the good times (and even the bad) of your new adventures together.


Choose to love your partner

The most important resolution you can make is to love your partner. You have to choose to love your partner every day for this relationship to work. If you aren’t acting intentionally toward your partner and demonstrating your love daily, this relationship likely won’t last. Love is a choice and an action.
