Want to keep love alive? Here’s how.
There is an idea going around that you may have heard, that long-term relationships eventually and inevitably become flat and boring. Unfortunately, all too many people believe this myth and act accordingly. That is, they expect this to happen, and when they experience moments in which feelings of attraction, desire, or sexual excitement are not powerfully stimulating, they assume that the flame has gone out and that the future is bleak and uninspiring.
Possessed by this expectation, it’s not surprising that many couples’ relationships can begin an inexorable downward trajectory that all too often may end in separation or worse.
While it is not possible to prevent those moments from ever occurring, it is possible to strengthen the substance of a relationship in a way that minimizes their impact and diminishes the frequency of those occurrences. Not just a little bit, but to a very significant degree.
“What’s the catch?”, you might ask.
There is none, that is, unless you call infusing your life with more fun and pleasure a catch. And yes, that is what it takes to make sure that you keep your relationship fresh, passionate, and exciting; whether you’re twenty or ninety.
