3. They Get Away Together
It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when you’re just going through the motions of your everyday life. So one thing Dr. Jackson suggests to couples is to travel as often as you can. “Getting out of the same old environment and routine awakens new energy in couples and allows them to connect or reconnect in a new way without the day to day distractions,” she says. You’ll have fun experiences to bond over and you may even learn new things about your partner that’ll have you falling in love again.
4. They Laugh Together
Having a shared sense of humor can be really beneficial to your relationship. When you can laugh together, you can keep the spark in your relationship alive. As Trina Boice, relationship expert and author of Base Hits and Home Run Relationships: What Women Wish Guys Knew, tells Bustle, “Couples who stop laughing and being silly with each other usually become roommates or business partners.”
5. They Agree To Disagree
“You’re never going to agree on everything, so the sooner you accept that fact, the sooner you’ll be able to diffuse arguments and be OK with differing opinions,” Boice says. The fact is, all couples argue. But those who keep crushing on each other after years of being together know how to solve problems as quickly as possible. They also know that being right or “winning” isn’t as important as the state of your relationship.
