After you have been dating your partner for a while, romance and passion tends to take a back seat and according to a recent adult datingstudy, over 60 percent of relationships end because couples don’t know how to reclaim the spark that has dwindled over time in their relationships.

You no longer suck in your beer gut, hold your flatulence or do yourself up like you used to at the beginning of your relationship.  It is imperative to know that this is completely normal in a long-term relationship. However, it is also imperative to know that even small romantic gestures can reignite the spark you both had thought was long gone.

You don’t have to hurt your wallet to show the one you love that you care about them and appreciate them.  Just follow these fifteen easy steps and see how it makes your relationship bloom again:

1. After a stressful day at work or at home, take a walk with your partner in a park instead of just asking them how their day was.

2. Learn to say “I love you” in various languages.

3. Surprise them by buying their favorite magazine or new novel from their favorite author.

4. Write your partner a list of reasons why you love them. Leave it beside their pillow in the morning.

5. Get a frame for your favorite card they have ever written you.

6. Lightly spray your cologne or perfume in their briefcase and purse so they think of you during the day.

7. Surprise them with dinner by using their favorite family recipe.

8. Surprise them with rose petals in the bathtub and candles and wine for a nice bath for two.

9. Recreate your first date with one another.

10. Go to the beach and plan a big picnic.

11. Act like a tourist and explore your city together for a whole day.

12.  Watch the sunset together with a glass of wine.

13. Surprise them at work and take them out to lunch.

14. Exchange your inner most fantasies with one another in bed and re-enact them.

15. Change your home computer’s screensaver to a picture of you and your partner.

Remember that just because you can’t reclaim the butterflies in your stomach you felt when you first started dating your partner, doesn’t mean you can’t reclaim the romance and the passion that made you fall in love with one another in the first place.
