A relationship sometimes takes a lot more work than the movies prepare us for.
There’s so much more than just the honeymoon phase; the majority of a relationship is spent trying to live your life with another person, which isn’t always easy.
But we love the partner we choose, which is why we stick with them for the good times and the bad.
And the best way to stick with your partner is through love and understanding. When the love starts to get old and passionless, it’s time to reconnect, to bond with each other again at the most intimate levels.
There are many ways to do this: a romantic vacation, fun experiences, a shared success story.
