Whether you’re having one of the best days of your relationship or you’re mid-argument, your partner wants to know you’re still in love. Daily affirmations serve as gentle reminders that you’re still passionate, serious, and planning to be around for years to come — hopefully forever.

Here are 7 ways to rekindle the intimacy and passion your relationship on a daily basis:

1. Schedule time for intimacy

Schedule intimacy dates and carve out quality time with your partner. Let your partner know you desire them and make them feel special.

2. Flirt
When you’ve been together for a while, it’s easy to fall into a routine. That doesn’t mean life has to become boring. Flirting keeps the spark alive by reminding partner you have romantic feelings for them.

3. Affection
Physical touch is one of the most tangible ways to show your love. Show your partner affection by rubbing their feet or massaging them when watching a movie or holding hands when talking a walk. Touch each other affectionately.

4. Initiate
Experiment with something fun, and exciting. Take initiative to plan an experience out of your ordinary routine. Introducing something new and sexy will make you both excited.

5. Speak your partner’s love language
What is your partner’s love language? Learn ways your partner feels loved and take action finding ways to express it on a daily basis. 

6. Do the unexpected
Surprise your partner with a kiss and leave his head spinning and her heart happy. Break away from the ordinary and make them a delicious meal or plan an outing that you know you will both enjoy.

7. Give Compliments 
Do you love the way his eyes sparkle when he smiles at you? How about her goofy dance moves that make you roll your eyes but secretly make you laugh on the inside? Pay your partner a compliment and remind them daily why you love them.
