This is a Student Love Tip by Sarah Perrott
Many couples will date for long periods of time and begin to feel as though the spark is gone and that their love is dead. However, if you express your positive feelings for one another, you can keep the spark alive in your relationship. For example, saying simple things like, "I love you" and "You look beautiful" are encouraging, and make your significant other feel as though he or she is loved and beautiful. While these feelings might be obvious from the beginning, saying them out loud is key so your partner has full knowledge of how you feel. There are also wordless acts you can do to express positive feelings towards your partner. Taking your partner out on a romantic date that was well thought out and planned based on the things he or she loves is one way to show how well you knows your boyfriend/girlfriend, and how much you care for him/her. Another way to express positive feelings and spark romance and affection is to give each other gifts. The gifts don't have to be big; sometimes the smallest items mean the most. For example, my boyfriend bought a bar of Lindt chocolate when he knew I was having a bad day, and that gift not only cheered me up, but also let me know he still loved and cared about me. Whatever you choose to do, whether big or small, it's important to express positive feelings and romance towards your significant other to keep your spark going strong.
