After being together for a while, couples can fall into a rut and take each other for granted. But you can re-ignite the romance by making an effort and thinking out of the box.

Here are some helpful tips on how to re-ignite the romance in your relationship:

• Act romantic and you will feel romantic. Set the scene with soft music and candlelight.

• Have a date night at least once a week

• Be creative. Treat your partner to a special place or experience or serenade your partner, even if you lip-sync!

• Kiss and touch often.

• Compliment each other.

• Talk about sex. Drop little sexual hints, ask what your partner wants, or tell them what you want.

• Tell each other about your secret fantasies and make plans to play them out (as long as both of you feel safe to do so).
