2017 is just round the corner and most of us are already busy making our resolutions. But, what about love resolutions? Have you made any? Even if you are happy with the way things are going in your relationship, there is always scope to add just a little bit more of fun and excitement to make it even stronger.
So, here we have a list of resolutions that you both can work on to take your love life to a new high.
Leave a love note, give a long kiss, buy some flowers, make a favourite dish, send an email, text, call or bring home something special that you know your partner loves. If your partner has been craving for time, then do just that. Showing that you love your significant other would make them feel more happy and secure in the relationship.
When was the last time you said “You look fantastic in red”, or “you look absolutely beautiful and sexy” to your partner? We are always in doubt about our looks, but a positive confirmation from your better half that you look absolutely wonderful or sexy, gives them the confidence that you still find them attractive.
Remember this dialogue from Mohabbatein, “Koi pyar kare to tumse kare, tum jaise ho waise kare...koi tumko badal ke pyar kare, to woh pyar nahi woh sauda kare...aur saheba, pyar me sauda nahi hota”. So, next time do not pick on your partner’s faults, instead accept them the way they are because nobody is perfect, not even you.
Holding hands, a warm hug, brushing a strand of hair from face, a quick kiss, arms on the shoulder, a kiss on the nape of the neck gives your partner a feeling of surety. In absence of these small acts of physical intimacy, sex would feel like a chore. So, do not forget to hold your partner’s hand when you are going out to the New Year’s Eve party.
Do you often forget what your partner said while you were together? Well, it is time to change that. Put down the TV remote, your phone or whatever it is you are doing, and direct all your attention to one of the most important parts of your life. Let everything else fade out.

Spending time together as a couple is very important in a relationship to keep the romance alive. But, that does not mean you need to plan for expensive outings or fancy dinners, just being there with each other is more than enough. A walk in the neighbourhood at night, watching your favourite show on the TV, working on a project for children, pillow fighting or any other mundane activity would seem fun if you both are together in it.
If your partner forgot your birthday or did something that hurt you, do not just be angry about it. Express your feelings, try to understand what happened and resolve the issue. Piling up on anger and resentment would cause only despair.
