Spontaneous Moments in a Relationship

A couple who has settled into their long term relationship will often find them are descending into a rut, and they might not know exactly how to get out of it. Looking back at their dating days might be helpful, but their maturity might keep them from reliving some of their early experiences. For those who want to keep the sizzle in their relationship, looking for opportunities at every turn is a good way to rekindle the flame. Spontaneous moments in a relationship that has been active for a few years can be few, so taking advantage of them can open up a whole new chapter.

Planning a date night out of the house is always a good idea, but romance can occur in the blink of an eye. For those who are tired of the planning, taking a few minutes to flirt at breakfast is a spontaneous activity that could work even better. There is no need for agreement, and the effect of the action could take the couple out of their rut with little or no further action.

Many couples run errands together when they have time, and there are opportunities for spontaneous action here. Holding a partner’s hand while shopping might seem unproductive, but it can generate a good feeling for both. It is the thought behind the action that will stir the low spark of love back into a flame of romance, so it might be worth a try.

A long term relationship is one where two people are comfortable with each other, but it does not necessarily mean they need to settle for less than a great life together. Making small gestures spontaneously can turn a dull day into a romantic interlude, and it can keep the relationship from souring. Those who are eager for a little romance will find there are plenty of opportunities available if they just take a few chances.
