Have you been feeling like you’ve lost that loving feeling in your relationship? Nothing is really wrong, and you aren’t unhappy, but the intimacy and connection you used to have with each other just doesn’t seem the same anymore.
What It Looks Like
He leaves for work in a hurry with a quick “Have a nice day” thrown over his shoulder..almost as an after-thought.
She gets ready for bed at night, turns out the light, and just manages to mumble, “Good night honey” before curling up on the opposite end of the bed.
If these scenarios are more or less the norm in your relationship, then it may be time to rekindle the physical intimacy and that loving feeling between the two of you.
It’s easy to get caught up in our day-to-day lives and to forget about the importance of affection in our relationships. Affection is a natural reflection of the love between you and your partner. Moments of physical affection and emotional connection bring more warmth and connection to your relationship. Taking time to tend to the small chances to express intimacy is key to strengthening your relationship.
How to Get Back That Loving Feeling
If you’ve become used to having more physical distance in your relationship, start off with baby steps to warm things up – begin each day with a kiss goodbye and show the same affection when you both get home from work. When you get into bed at night, try not to turn away from each other, even if you are more comfortable facing the wall on the other end of the bed. Small efforts such as kissing your partner good night and sleeping a little less far apart will begin to chip away at the invisible wall between you and your partner.
Little by little you can bring back that loving feeling into your relationship and keep your intimacy and connection alive. If you need someone who understands and can help guide you through the challenges, don’t hesitate to contact us and schedule a private phone session.
