Talk, communicate, cultivate new curiosities, make joint projects, surprise the other, seduce again and again...

Here are the secrets of couples in love. Avoiding distraction: When you've been in someone's life for a very long time, you can end up not paying attention to them, not seeing them, treating them like you don't. dare not treat a stranger. Find new reasons to stay together: The reasons that found the couple are not those that make it last. Why do we stay? Escape the routine: The couple's number one enemy is the boredom that comes from routine. Spoil the other: Compliments, invite the other to a restaurant, give him a gift... Put a little fantasy in the couple! Cultivate new curiosities: So that the couple can be nourished by discoveries and contributions drawn from outside, develop the personal activities of each, whether artistic, social or family, in order to arouse the want to meet again. Speaking, communicating: In a couple where no one speaks, love dies. Everyone has their own style: speeches, intimacy, humour, shared silence. But in a real exchange. Facing conflict without fear: It is not a question of avoiding conflict, but of knowing how to manage it. So that the household scene does not degenerate, avoid contempt and humiliation. Start with: "Me, it hurts me to see, to hear..." Rather than: "It's always the same thing with you..." Seduce again and again: Why reserve for visitors or strangers the treasures of charm, listening and attention that we can be capable of? Having common projects: Having memories is good. But having plans is life! Whether it's a trip, a house, a common work. Love is always to live ahead. Cultivate simple pleasures: Small pleasures and great joys. Each age has its own. And the further we go, the more we find: in nature, music, the arts, gastronomy, affection, sexual life.
