7. Show appreciation
Another way to keep intimacy alive in a relationship is to always take the time to show appreciation to your partner. This may sound simple enough, but many people tend to overlook this important aspect. Everyone loves being appreciated, most of all by the people who matter. Whether you verbalize it by saying, “Thank you for all that you have done, my love”, or treat your partner to a home cooked meal, show that you appreciate your lover. Even better, take a few seconds every day to look your partner in the eye, thank them and tell them how much you love them.
