Keeping your romance alive is about more than just lighting candles, running a bubble bath, and giving your loved one a foot massage. In fact, studies have shown that doing new things with your partner releases oxytocin in your brains, which is one chemical that makes you feel smitten with your loved one at the beginning of a relationship.

This means that your romance can stay alive if you and your partner take a ceramics class together, or if you finally get around to painting your kitchen as a pair. If you want to maintain your romance, then you have to reassure your partner with love and affection while also finding new ways to keep your relationship feeling fresh long after its first flowers have bloomed.
