Love isn’t always easy. It takes two committed partners working together to keep the flames of passion alive in a relationship. With so many distractions these days, it’s easy for couples to fall into bad habits. Sometimes we take those we love for granted. We fail to make time for our partner, and things become boring and predictable. We no longer feel the need to make a real effort in building intimacy. However, strengthening the bonds of your relationship doesn’t have to be so complicated.
There isn’t a more simple way of sparking romance than walking together in the cool evening breeze.
Step out into the fresh air, put away your cell phone, and remove all distractions. A romantic walk allows you to concentrate on what’s really important — each other. It’s a chance for the both of you to talk, laugh, hold hands, look into each other’s eyes, and connect in a meaningful way. Walking together outdoors allows all other worries to melt away. It reminds couples of a carefree time when adult responsibilities didn’t control their lives. Stroll leisurely through a park among the songbirds and flower gardens. Take a late-evening walk and stargaze into the night sky. Walk home together after a movie, dinner, or a cup of coffee. Rediscover a place that’s important to your relationship, or explore an area you’ve never been before.
Romantic walks can also be creative! Lead your partner with their eyes closed. Describe the scenery around them, while walking to a place that’s unconnected to the previous spot. The last thing your partner saw was a crowded bistro courtyard. Surprise them with a serene, fountain adorned with lights the next time they open their eyes. Take turns and allow your partner to lead you to a new destination. By sharing these simple, whimsical adventures, couples can build intimacy and strengthen their relationships. Take a walk, unwind and connect — romance has never been so easy.
