10 ROMANCE IDEAS YOU SHOULD TRY OUT
- Regularly say Romantic words to your partner.
The stress in your daily activities can sure drain the energy out of you and you forget the power of words. You forget to compliment your spouse and let them know that you still find them attractive and beautiful. Everyone needs assurance from their partner. Simple words like “I love you” “You are beautiful” “I can’t do without you” “You look sexy as hell today” “You make me happy” “You’re the apple of my eyes” and so on will do the magic. They will make your partner feel loved.
On the other hand, refrain from saying negative statements to your partner even if you had a bad day.
- Love notes.
Sending your spouse a text is quite easy given that we all communicate electronically. Why not spice things up by taking the time to write them a note and hide it where they can find it easily. It could be in their bag or briefcase or even their pockets. It could also be anywhere in the house.

- Cook Together.
Cooking is one fun activity you can do together especially if you both are on the same level when it comes to that and even if you are not, it can still be fun. Search for a new recipe together or rather, create one yourselves. Wear aprons and pretend You are professional chefs. You get to laugh at each other and also compliment each other. You can also pass down the recipe to your kids if it actually turns out good and if it doesn’t? More reasons to laugh.
More exciting is to make it a competition, each partner showing off their cooking prowess and see who the real Chef is. Also, do not forget to make out at intervals(be careful not to get the food burnt)
This is actually so much fun and you get to bond with your partner more.
- Give Gifts.
Surprise your partner with a thoughtful gift. Buying gifts for your partner will increase your love in their heart because the heart is normally softened by such gestures. You don’t have to wait until their birthday or your anniversary. Just buy them gifts randomly. It could be something they crave for, or something they really need. Just get it for them when they least expect it. This doesn’t mean you should break a bank. Something little and meaningful will do.
