In our over-sexualized, sex-hungry society, it’s no wonder that everyone feels so pressured to get it on, even when the timing or mood might not be right. I mean, it’s supposed to be the best thing about your relationship, right?
The truth is, dry spells are one of the most common and unspoken experiences in our sex lives. It happens and honestly, no one should feel any shame over it. Just like a car in need of some serious maintenance or an interior of a house that needs to be repainted, everyone needs a reboot. That, or just a little tender, love and care. That’s why we are here to tell you not to freak out if you’ve been experiencing a dry spell that has you worried about your future. All you need to take is a few steps in the right direction and you’ll be back in the saddle again before you know it.
Here are 6 ways you can fix our dry spell
1. Have More Time to Reconnect
You know that Indian restaurant you’ve been dying to try for several months? Perhaps now is a good time to grab your partner for a much-needed date night. Take him or her out, order the chicken curry and sit back, relax and use this opportunity to reconnect with your loved on.
Remember those days when you used to wine and dine each other before making a commitment to one another? Sometimes we all just need to rewind and remember why we fell in love with our partners in the first place. Treat each one of your dates like it’s the first date.
2. Focus on Communication
It doesn’t take an expert to tell you that communication is perhaps the most important key to a successful relationship. And it’s not just about texting each other to see who took the garbage out or fed the dog last, but tell each other exactly what you’re feeling at any given moment.
It could be anything from how happy you’re feeling, how much you miss your soul mate or even about how aroused you are by just thinking about him or her. Remember, attraction and lust can be very verbal, too.
3. Buy Gifts
They say money can’t buy you love, but what do they really know? Everyone wants to feel like they are special. It’s human nature. Sure, a bouquet of roses won’t last forever but by walking in the door and surprising your partner with a special gift or token of your appreciation for them, you’ll show them just how meaningful they are to you.
I’m not saying that you have to buy a Tiffany’s present to mark all the important occasions on your calendar, but something simple like your partners favorite brand of chocolate or an old-fashioned card that says exactly what you’ve been thinking can sure go a long way.
