Below are 10 acts of kindness that can keep the fire burning in your romantic relationship.

1. Compliments

Ensure that you compliment your partner as much as possible. Pay attention to when they make changes to their appearance, for example, so you can offer a genuine compliment about it.

2. Cook a romantic meal

This demonstrates that you care enough about your partner to ensure that not only are they nourished, but that you took the time and effort to contribute to this.

3. Love letters

This is a cute way to make your partner smile. Nothing beats some Keats to let them know that love is your religion.

4. Netflix and chill

Find a series that you both will enjoy watching. The expectancy of keeping up with the drama, in the company of your partner, will bind you closer together.

5. Touch

Embrace your partner at random; touch them in a way that demonstrates your appreciation. It could be a hug or a gentle kiss on the cheek or forehead.

6. Compile a book of love notes and pictures

In the age of technology, most of your pictures will be on your phone, but head to a photo studio to print out a few, buy a scrapbook, and do collages with these pictures and some of the best romantic poems. It is a creative way to retain and treasure memories shared.

7. Music of love

You may not share the same taste in music, but some songs are timeless and will tug at the heartstrings. Let your mate know how deep your love is, with a music set for them to play in the car.

8. Buy a gift

Go out and get something you have been hearing your partner saying that they want.

9. Surprise vacation/trip

Plan a romantic outing to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Even if just for a day, it will be a welcome reprieve.

10. Say I love you

Do this at the times they least expect it, and it will have more meaning.
