So there is much being said these days about the state of cohabitating relationships during this Covid-19 quarantine. While some look at the fact that most partners have been able to spend more to rekindle or get to know each other better you of course have the pessimists among us who focus on the negative.
Much of the negative comments have stemmed from the fact that there is no “escape” from the other person because they are also at home (exception of course to our essential service heroes). Where there is a will, there is a way.
Here are three (3) tips for enjoying the time with your partner in close quarters:
- Remember that the person does have interests outside of you and not because they are home you should assume that they are accessible. Sometimes people just need a breather, some quiet time with their own thoughts, time to even process what is going on with the world now. Giving someone space is also a way to love them.
- Set a date and time to do something that is not the mundane. For example, making a special dinner together, have a picnic in your living room, create a relaxing spa like atmosphere at home and just do an act of kindness “you won a massage for just being awesome”. Do something; get creative.
- Sex on the brain? Just because you are home day in and day out doesn’t mean you can’t stir things up. One of the simplest ways to do this is to purchase some new alluring lingerie. You always go for a particular style e.g. babydoll, why not try something skimpier like a hot sexy teddy lingerie.
Thoughtfulness goes a long way. It’s an energy easily felt. Let us know how these tips work for you!
