How to Maintain Sexual Desire in a Long-Term Relationship
A common perception is that romantic passion between two people will inevitably and significantly decrease after they have spent a long time together.
And, while perhaps this is unavoidable to some extent, there are some ways that you can keep the romance going even many years into your relationship.
For one, simply understand each other’s needs – what works best for your partner? Then, make sure that you’re contributing equally to the relationship, as this has been shown to kindle romantic passion.
- We all generally think that as the years go by, the level of romantic desire and passion in a relationship will fade.
- However, that doesn’t have to be the case, so long as we take active steps to maintain that passion.
- Most important? Simply being there and engaging with your partner, building the necessary emotional connection for romance.
