“Our relationship is such hard work. The spark is gone.”

The best long-term relationships are both firmly grounded AND light hearted. Committed relationships need those fleeting moments of enjoyment to carry them through the difficult times of life.

While it’s important to discuss long-term goals and significant issues, it’s equally important to have fun and relax together on a daily basis.

When one partner continuously wants to engage in heavy and serious discussions — about relationship issues or other matters, the personal energetic relationship suffers. As a result, many couples stop being intimate, and even stop looking at each other.

Music, dancing, watching sports together, and having romantic meals are all ways to keep a personal, energetic connection alive.
