After you get over the first few months in a relationship (or the honeymoon period in a marriage) romance starts taking a back seat in everyday life, slowly and gradually. You start falling into a routine and romance becomes the last thing to come into your mind. You go to office in the morning, come back by late evening, have food, talk a little and go off to sleep. And in the morning, the whole routine starts all over again. Then, suddenly, one fine day, you realize that there is hardly any romance in your daily life.
This is a normal phenomenon that takes place in almost every
relationship. And, you need to make conscious efforts to make sure that
you do not fall into this situation. Doing small little things like
treating your partner to a nice homemade candle lit dinner or welcoming
him/her at home in a romantic manner (like with flowers) after he/she
comes from office, etc, are some of the things that you may do to keep
the romance in your relationship alive.
Remember that these thoughtful things are not to be done on a one-time
basis and then forgotten. You need to do them on a regular and
continuous basis to make your relationship more loving. To help you with
this task, we have made an entire section on "ideas for everyday
romance". Read the other articles in this section to bring love and
romance in your daily life.
