Men are simple creatures, they have two modes of operation – Off and On. Either they’re interested, or they’re not. Yet, for all this simplicity, women still wonder how to keep the spark alive in a good relationship.

Once you’ve fallen into a routine with your sweetie, it’s far too easy to fall into a rut soon after. Thankfully it’s pretty easy to kick-start the passion once it starts to wane.
Four Simple Ways to Rekindle the Spark
- Take An Honest Interest – Save the talk about shoes, fashion and makeup for your girlfriends. Unless your man brings up these topics he doesn’t care to hear about it. Instead, make him feel special by knowing a thing or two about the hobbies, sports, and subjects he enjoys. This doesn’t mean you have to become an expert on bulldozering if he’s into construction, it just means you show an appropriate level of enthusiasm when he’s talking about hauling hot asphalt.
- Stay Sexy – It may be tempting to relax your grooming habits and let yourself go a little once you get settled into a relationship. Trust me, I know how comfortable flannel pajamas are, but I also know that sexy and comfy don’t always mix. Show your man you’re still hot for him by actually taking the time to get dolled up and look sensual for him, he’ll appreciate the special treatment.
- A Little Flirt Never Hurt – Surprise your man every once in a while to let him know you appreciate everything he does. Flirty texts, a picture of the sassy lingerie you picked up while shopping because you were thinking of him, anything to shake up his day and let him know you’re looking forward to seeing him will keep the love alive.

- Show A Little Respect – Never emasculate your man in front of his friends, family or co-workers. Heck, don’t emasculate him ever, if you can help it. For all their machismo and bravado, men are surprisingly fragile, they need their egos stroked regularly. Dole out compliments often, and be genuine about it, because dudes can spot insincerity a mile away.
Keep Him Coming Back For More
Few women realize just how much power they have in their relationship, especially when it comes to keeping their man interested. Essentially it comes down to carrying yourself with confidence, and loving your man as you love yourself. Take time each day to show your appreciation and he will go out of his way to be loving in return.
