Living together can be great but, let’s face it; nobody can possibly stay fascinating forever. I mean after being together for a while, the initial excitement that had when you both got together fades away and your relationship can get down right BORING. But, hey don’t think the feeling is just you, it is very likely that the other half will be feeling the same. To overcome this ‘dark stage’ in your relationship there are a couple minor changes Rachel Wilkins the author from Your Love Guru advises you to change a couple of things around the house (which will help you overcome this problem and get things back on lovers island).
Colours of the bedroom!
Are you thinking about decorating anytime soon? Well, here are some things to keep in mind when you do, you see men tend to prefer taupe and beige, while women tend to like red and gold. So it is often a case of what colour goes best? So in order to meet half way and create something you both can agree on and especially in the bedroom it needs to be something intimate but yet fulfil your needs, like chocolate brown or silver blue. That way neither of you is perfect but the quirks you both want are there. So rather than get annoyed, work to each other’s strengths and remind yourself just why you love each other so much. This is a great exercise for those looking to really understand your other half and working for a greater inner peace between you.
REMOVE the TV from the bedroom
Television is a major intimacy killer. I mean save the favourite shows and the football games for another room or even another time. The Bedroom is for 3 things; Sleep, Sex and Snuggle. So every time you’re in bed you know what install and you can focus your attention on what really matters.
Dim the lights, action, TAKE!
If you’re anything like me then you’re a sucker for dimmed lights with soft music in the back ground with maybe a candle or two. I know it might sound cheesy, but this can really set the mood, making your living room feel cosy and giving your bedroom that sexy feel when it’s about it get down.
Your own DOMAIN!
Even though you’re living together it doesn’t mean you can’t have your own space, somewhere you can get away to, a separate area to serve as a little me time area. It might simply be a little corner, a chair, table or if you’re lucky a room. This helps when you want to be a little selfish and do something on your own without being distracted by the other half.
Now, you need understand that the most important decisions are made together, so when you both agree on how the house should be and what things to change, then you’re both on common ground. Using the bedroom colour exercise is a really good way to learn more about your partner, the old saying goes “You never really know someone until you live with them” well, this is a great way to really get to know your other half without a question. These are a few really effective ways on how to get back your boyfriend (or girlfriend).
