Keep the Surprises Coming

Think back to the days when you first met. You weren't sure when he or she would call so you anxiously awaited the next conversation. It's this unpredictability that keeps us wanting more.

While we can't turn back time to the days when we weren't so well acquainted, we can create surprises in our everyday interactions. Start by communicating with your spouse even when no communication is necessary. Send a text just to tell him you love him and miss him. Better yet, write a letter. Letters show that you're putting in extra effort. Your love letter doesn't have to be reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet, just a simple note that shows you care.

Send flowers on a random Tuesday. Make your mate's favorite meal on a weeknight. Pick up a nice bottle of wine and cheers for no reason at all. Go out to lunch during a busy work week. Surprises like these keep your partner feeling as desired as he did when you were first dating.

Read on to find out how to court your spouse as if you'd just met.
