Recreate the first days of your relationship...

It’s not about a simple anniversary. It’s not about one day in the early phases of your dating. It’s about reliving those wonderful sensations both of you experienced during the first few encounters. Granted, it won’t be easy, but that doesn’t mean the attempt won’t have the desired effect. Once you embark on reexperiencing -- not reenacting -- those first feelings of interest and attraction, you will be surprised at how rejuvenating those emotions can be. It’s those feelings that should be the focal point of the experiment; your goal is to refresh the current status of your relationship. You can set up a faux blind date. Arrange to meet each other at a location neither of you have visited in the past and seek to experience a second first date. You can even introduce yourselves all over again, attempt new topics of conversation, and in general, proceed as if you’re seeing each other for the very first time. Again, the attempt alone should provide the necessary spark. This tip should help spark the relationship a bit.
