Celebrate with the one you love – it’s National Lovers Day! Here, we reveal five ways for you to be a better lover to your partner.

Take time to be alone together

Whether it is scheduling in a weekly date night, or planning a long trip away together, it is important to make sure you prioritize alone time as a couple. This does not mean cooking dinner and watching TV on the couch. Orchestrate special time for just the two of you outside the house, at least once a week.

Be generous in the bedroom

When you have been in a relationship for a while, it is easy to get used to a routine sex life. Whatever you do, be generous! Put your partner’s needs before your own, and be open with what you are willing to do under the sheets (try everything once, people). If you stick to the spontaneous, you will enjoy it. And so will they!

Challenge each other

Predictability can lead to indifference. Take some time to challenge other in various activities to prevent boredom. Go on an adventurous vacation, or hit the gym as a couple. Decide to develop a joint plan that will take both of you out of your comfort zones and make memories together.

Respect each other

First and foremost respect each other and your individual traits. There is a difference between challenging someone you love, and trying to change them. Accept them for who they are, after all, that is the person you fell for!

Communication is key

Without the love, there is no relationship! Tell the person that you love how you feel every day. Saying I love you doesn’t have to be the only way to show you care, however – leave a note on their desk, text them at a random point throughout a work day. It doesn’t matter what you do, just communicate you care, and you want to be close.
