Nothing compares to the feeling of being head over heels in love. You can’t help but smile, you have a spring in your step, and you feel like you are walking on sunshine. Then, after you settle into a comfortable routine, you start to feel that your sizzle is starting to fizzle.
There are tons of ways to rekindle that spark or just keep it burning as bright as before. Both men and women agree that a little romance goes a long way to keep that loving feeling.
- Hop on a Plane

Spending quality time together and breaking out of your usual routine will definitely help things to get back to the way it was. There is nothing a white sand beach and crystal-blue water cannot fix.
Dinner for Two
Whether it’s an intimate little bistro or a romantic dinner at home, dining by candlelight is a natural aphrodisiac. The sultry glow of candles sets the scene for a perfect night of kissing and cuddling.
The Small Things
Over-the-top gifts and lavish productions aren’t needed to show your significant other how much you care. It’s the little things that will be remembered. Put on your thinking cap and think about something they are passionate about. Letting them know they are always in your mind, even if every day can’t be like a romance novel, reinforces that loving feeling.
Sealed With a Kiss
Nothing can say I love you more than a heart-felt love letter. Keep in mind it doesn’t need to be four pages long. A simple note found unexpectedly will instantly spread warm fuzzies. Something as simple as writing their name in the sand or spelling out I love you with Fruit Loops is pretty fantastic.
