Remember the early days, before you were married and you showed your affection in fun and silly ways?
Maybe you’re thinking about a playful shove you gave to your sweetie on one of your first dates.
Maybe you’re even thinking of way back in grade school when you pulled a girl’s hair on the playground.
We all have funny, sometimes awkward, memories of flirting, but far too often these memories are all in the distant past. Flirting isn’t something we typically do once we’ve settled into our marriage routines. It’s something we grow out of and just forget about.
But flirting is important! It’s one way to keep the butterflies you felt early on in your relationship, no matter how long you’ve been together. It reignites the flame and helps you to feel less boring as a couple.
We’ve all been there…the days that you feel more like roommates than spouses. Flirting is an easy way to reverse those uncomfortable and frightening feelings.
Bringing flirting back can recharge your marriage and help you to express desire in a sweet way.
Here’s just a quick list of things to try in your marriage:
Leave a sweet note in the car, in his lunchbox, or on the mirror when he’s showering
Post a note of praise on Facebook to share your affection with the world
Call to check in during the day, just to see how she’s doing
Pat your sweetie on the bottom when they walk by
Send a text letting you spouse know “I just can’t stop thinking about you”
Ask him to pick out today’s underwear
Lighten her load by doing chores around the house that you wouldn’t normally do
Everyone wants to feel wanted and flirting can boost your confidence and your libido. The most important thing is to be sure to keep the flirting in your own marriage!
