Love Making Tips and Passion Secrets

Turn Up the Heat in Your Marriage or Love Relationship in 5 Easy Steps

 By Susie and Otto Collins

You may secretly wish that your love relationship was as close and loving as it used to be.  Many people in long-standing married or committed relationships feel this way. There might be separation or disconnection between you, and the way you look at each other has changed. It is likely that a lot of friendship and cooperation still exists between you, but the passion has dimmed or even died throughout the years.

If this is the case for you, we have good news! You can rekindle passion that has died. With some refocusing and looking at your partner with a new vision, it is possible. And, believe it or not, it starts outside of the bedroom.

If you don't know how to start to turn up the heat and put more life and love back into your relationship, here are 5 easy steps to try...

1.  Never go to bed angry. It may be trite, but it's true:  Of the couples we talk with who have been married 30, 40, even 50 years, this is the most frequent advice we hear. When something comes up between the two of you, take the time to talk it out.

2.  Be generous with heart-felt compliments and gratitude. Sincere compliments and thanks can help draw you and your partner closer and make you both feel uplifted. Too often compliments or words of thanks are followed by criticism. If this is a habit for you, stop doing it.

3.  Don't stop exploring each other.  Even if you have been together for many years, you can always learn something new about your partner. Don't assume that you know everything there is to know about him or her.

4.  Be kind.  It is amazing to notice that many couples say they love each other and then treat the other person unkindly. Using loving words and consideration are two ways to be kind. No matter how many years you have been together, treat each other as you would treat someone of huge importance to you.

5.  Open your heart to your partner, no matter how busy or tired you are.  Taking the time to listen and understand your partner is part of opening your heart. Not making assumptions and sharing what is important to you with your partner are other ways to open your heart.

These 5 easy steps are examples of practices that help bring us closer, make each day special together and keep our relationship alive, passionate and filled with love.

Love is a choice that we open up to in every moment. Where you place your attention is always a choice you make. We hope that you'll join us by choosing love more of the time.
