If you think that flirting is just a tool for meeting a partner, think again. When you first fell for your partner, everything about him/her was exciting and lovable. Your relationship was passionate and you loved every moment of it. Now, you have been together for a long time, things might be slowing down a bit, and everything might start feeling like a routine. So, to keep the passion alive, you have to work at it. But how do you flirt when you’re in a long-term relationship? Try these things which you should never stop doing to keep your relationship sparkling.
1. Compliment Them In Front Of Other People
Another thing to do is compliment your boyfriend in front of and to other people. So, for example, if he walks into a room that you are already in, then you can turn to the person next to you, and say “Isn’t he so handsome?” It usually makes both of them a little bit embarrassed but it also makes your boyfriend feel good — and that’s the ultimate goal.
2. Text Him Sexy Messages
Who doesn’t like getting sexy pics of someone they love or reading what they’re going to do to you when they get home? Remember when you used to feel giddy about receiving text messages from him in the middle of the day after a wonderful dinner date? Why not turn the tables around and do it yourself this time! Say: “I’m waiting at home wearing that thing you bought for me, dear.” You bet he’ll get home before five!
3. Having Fun Together
Try and remember the fun you had together. Do not stop doing things that made you fall for each other in the first place. Laugh at your partner’s jokes and share the good old times. Do not turn him/her down when he/she suggests a romantic walk one evening. TV shows and daily chores can always wait. Sometimes, skip a day at work and do your favourite things together.
4. Get Dressed Up For Each Other
When kids and bills pile up – yep, they can be under one category – admit it, you often times forget how it is to look pretty and made up. So why not call in the in-laws or hire a babysitter and tell him you’ve arranged a dinner for two?
And don’t go there in your sweatshirt! Take out that little black dress, pump up your look with appropriate accessories, tie your hair in a ponytail, and put those makeup brushes to work! Dress to impress, lady!
5. Give A Little Kiss
A peck on the mouth or cheek or top of the head every once in a while is a great way to lightly flirt with your significant other.
6. Leave Handwritten Notes Anywhere
No special occasion needed! Leave notes on the fridge, on his bedside table, his wallet, even his car!
Write suggestive and flirty what-nots. Hints?
Maybe: “Waiting for you in #bed tonight?” Or: “You look good in that tie, mind if I take that off later?” He’ll be grinning the whole day thinking of you and the night that will ensue.
7. Touch Them
Grab their butt! Or some other lovely, grab-able part of their body — if that’s something they’re OK with, of course. Take any opportunity to hug, kiss, and squeeze your boyfriend. When you are feeling particularly flirty,just give his butt a squeeze. Keeps the things interesting.
8. Being Intimate
Surprising your partner in the shower because you want some steamy love is a good idea. Sex should not be reserved only for the nights and the bedrooms. Try new positions and new places. Stay up late on a weeknight, just rolling around in bed and behaving like teenagers again.
9. Ban Pajamas For 2 days
They’re comfy and snuggly, but you’ve been wearing them for months! Do yourself a favor and ban them for at least two nights and wear those lingerie and sexy sleeping outfits that have been hidden in the dark corner of your closet. Leave the nightlight on and wait for his entrance in the room of love.
10. Giving surprises
Do the unexpected and seduce your partner in a totally new way. Pick up his favourite beer or her favourite ice cream on your way home. Plan a surprise date or candlelit dinner at home at least once in a month.
11. Try Something New
A new position in bed, a new restaurant, even a new aftershave or lotion or cologne. New is not always bad. It can mark a new chapter in your life as a couple. Break the monotony and embrace change. If it doesn’t suit you then you don’t really lose anything; you gain something and it’s called experience.
