Tia Mowry Dishes On How She Keeps Romance Alive
“I met my amazing husband 14 years ago. There’s been good times and challenges, but in the end, I am blessed and beyond blissful to get to spend the rest of my life with such a kind and Godly man,” Tia writes.
Here are her tips for keeping romance alive in a relationship:
Go on unique dates: After a husband and wife (or even girlfriend and boyfriend) have been together for awhile, dates sort of fade into the background – after all, dates are what you do when you are getting to know each other in the beginning of the relationship, right? Wrong! It’s so important that couples still go on dates, no matter how long they’ve been together. It gives you guys quality alone time to really just focus on each other. If the standard “dinner and a movie” starts feeling routine, start thinking of unique dates to go on with each other. Crazy, adrenaline-rushing activities are so much fun to do with your significant other, but even a low key hike through a trail you’ve never been to before can get you out of a relationship rut.
Show your love: You might not think the little things matter once you’ve been together for a while, but they really do. Small things like flowers or handwritten notes really show your significant other you don’t take them for granted. It also helps remind you of the excitement you felt when your relationship first started. You don’t always have to buy things either – simple touches like surprising them with breakfast in bed or making an old fashioned mix tape are all sweet ways to show your love. I wouldn’t turn down a nice back massage either…
Be verbal: When your hubby looks fine in that suit of his, tell him! A lot of times, all it takes is a couple of loving words here and there every day to keep a relationship strong throughout the years. Especially as women, if we take an hour to get ready for something, then we want to know our efforts are being appreciated! Lol. Don’t be afraid to tell your significant other you’re proud of him, or love him, or that think he looks sεxy after mowing the lawn! Lol.
Get sεxy: After you’ve been with one person for awhile, it’s easy to fall into what I call the “sweats” rut. That is, you no longer feel like you have to impress them and start paying less and less attention to your appearance, and every day becomes a sweats and t-shirt kind of day. Now I’m definitely not saying that you need to be frantically hitting the gym everyday to keep the body you had 5 years ago, but it is important to remember to still make an effort sometimes. Swipe on some red lipstick, sleek back your hair and put on aLBD to surprise him one night – it will not only make you feel attractive (which, I don’t know about you guys, but always puts me in a good mood :) , but it will remind him of his attraction to you! And remember, some sεxy língerie never hurt no one ;)
