Relationships like blooming flowers need to be invigorated with new water and soil from time to time. Try something new which you have never done before like scuba diving, bungee jumping or snorkeling together. If you are not so adventurous then just an evening together making one of your favourite desserts or visiting a nearby wildlife sanctuary should provide the required stimulus to your relationship. Being thrown together in new situations will help you discover newer things about each other. Be together both physically and emotionally. Throw surprise parties for each other and try to celebrate each other wins with gusto. Go out and meet new and interesting people apart from your regular circle of friends to prevent boredom while socializing together. Send each other text messages to show you love and think about your partner though you may be physically apart. Revisit the past every now and then. Go back to that restaurant where you had your first date and re-read those old Valentines Day cards you had given each other. Travel together and create new memories as memories of spending time together are a bond in themselves.
No man or woman is going to be able to fulfill all your desires and expectations. That typical Mills and Boons hero exists only in print, as does the superwoman who looks like a million bucks after a hard days work and can cook a gourmet meal in thirty minutes flat. Have realistic expectations for each other and try to overcome minor problem areas in a proactive and reasonable manner. Before finding inadequacies in your partner, do a thorough analysis of your own flaws and shortcomings. Films, magazines and perceived lifestyles of celebrities can influence our own expectations and mature individuals should understand that they are far removed from the truth. The grass usually seems greener on the other side, but would most likely be a mirage. Grow up and understand that Prince Charming and Sleeping Beauty are just what they are – fairy tales. The fantasy of perfection can be achieved if you readjust your definition of it. This is the month of love, so go on and celebrate it in its every hue.
