Transcript:Tips for Improving Romance

Hi, I'm Nadia Chapman for About.com. With a little bit of effort from both parts, it's easy to bring back the spark in your couple. Here are 10 ways to improve romance in your relationship.

Make Time for Each Other to Improve Romance

Take time for each other. Go on dates, to a nice diner, a movie, or whatever makes you two feel connected. It can be as simple as going on a walk together at the end of the day, and talk. You make time for sport, kids, work, but don't forget to nourish your relationship too.

Organize long term activities together such as dance lessons, art classes, or setting some fitness goals together. Having a specific goal or activity that you share together will bring laugher in your couple, and support from each other. This is a great way to create a common hobby, and develop a passion for the same thing.

Enjoy Household Activities Together to Improve Romance

Share chores together. Make sure the amount of work around the house is the same for everyone. That way, no one will feel left out, and it will give both of you more time to enjoy doing other things. It's been proven many times that sharing house chores benefit the relationship.

Take time to eat together. With today's busy lifestyle it's easy to forget to take the time to sit down together, and share a meal. Also, take 5 or 10 minutes to have coffee together in the morning, and make sure you don't have distractions such as TV, while you are eating dinner together at night. Once in a while, you can even have the kids eating earlier; that leaves you peace, and quiet to sit down and enjoy a meal together.

Be kind. Compliment often, and make sure to express how lucky you feel to be in this relationship. Say thank you often and show respect to your spouse.

Take Trips Together to Improve Romance

Go to your happy place together, or somewhere for a little get away. Escape the daily routine, and get out of your house. Leave on a camping trip, a road trip, a weekend to a fun place, or to that special place you and your partner like to go.

Touch each other everyday. Don't let a day go by without a kiss, a hug, a pat in the back, holding hands or wrapping your arms around each other. This is an easy way to feel connected, and bring romance between each other.

Talk. Have conversations with each other. Talk about how your day went, things you are planing together, talk about how you feel, talk about things other than the bills, work, or anything else that brings stress into your lives. Think, and talk positive together.

Be Spontaneous to Improve Romance

Surprise your partner. Buy your woman her favorite flowers even if it's not on a special occasion, or simply stop at your partner's work spontaneously and go grab lunch together. Little surprises can go a long way when it comes to improve romance in a relationship.

Give each other some space. Give space, and time to your partner to have hobbies that make him or her happy. Your love one, just like your self, need to spend time alone or with other friends too at times. You too need your "me time" in order to feel good about your self. Be independently happy, and make sure your spouse feels the same. Your relationship needs to be a pleasant addition to your life, but not the only thing that makes you feel good about your self.
