Date your partner (in Memphis!)

Keeping things new and interesting in a relationship is important, and we don’t just mean in the bedroom. If you and your partner keep growing and learning together, you will be a strong team for years to come.

Whether you are 25 and living with your boyfriend and your dog, or 45 with a pre-teen and a toddler or 65 and (finally) an “empty-nester,” you need to date your significant other.

Go on a picnic in Overton Park and bring a Frisbee or books to read, ride bikes in Shelby Farms, make a list of restaurants you’ve both been wanting to try and start checking them off! Go to the movies, take dance lessons or a cooking class together, have a day at an amusement park or go skydiving! Do things together that are exciting or relaxing, old favorites or new experiences, but do them together.

Be sure not to limit yourself to romance only on date nights. Bring a playful spirit to your partnership. Flirt with each other every day and kiss when you first see your partner. Try these tips and see who easily romance is triggered for you and your partner. Have fun!
