How To Extend Your ‘Honeymoon Period’ With Your Lover

Whether you like it or not, the truth about every relationship on the planet is that there is always a honeymoon period during the first 3-6 months, a period of time where everything is perfect. During the honeymoon period, arguments are rare, you laugh at everything each other says, you can spend hours just looking into each others eyes and you love nothing more than hearing your partners stories and earning about their life.


As with anything in life, once you see or hear something repeatedly, you can become a little less interested in it and this is exactly what happens in a relationship, it is isn’t that you are not interested in them as a person, more than the little quirks and nuances become less exciting as you become accustomed to that person. In the bedroom, everything is exciting in the honeymoon period, you are learning about each others bodies and experimenting, soon this too becomes less interesting and there are few things worse than when the honeymoon period is over. The good news is that you can extend this period of your relationship and here are some tips as to how to do it.

Keep the Privacy

Many relationships thrive once the barriers are broken down, seeing each other at your worst, on the toilet, without make up, in your ‘comfy’ clothes, whatever it may be. In order to extend the honeymoon period, try to leave it as long as possible before letting these barriers down.

Stay Spicy in the Bedroom

Variety is vital in any relationship and if you really want to extend that honeymoon period then you need to keep things hot in the bedroom. You need to do whatever it takes to keep your partner happy, take risks, dress up, do ‘that’ thing that they have always wanted. Keeping things exciting in the bedroom will also keep things exciting in the rest of your relationship.

Avoid Boredom

It can be easy to get stuck in a rut with your partner, watching the same TV shows, eating the same foods, going to the same places. Remember that the honeymoon period is about learning about each other and that learning everything about someone in 3-6 months is simply impossible. Keep trying to learn more, keep trying to go for new experiences, doing this will prolong your honeymoon period.

Don’t go Too Quick

It can be easy, especially if you have found someone that you really want to be with, to advance the relationship as quickly as possible and do all the things that long term couples do. Something that you need to remember is that this is the most exciting time in your relationship so take it slow, go for a weekend away by all means but the package holiday can wait, living together is amazing but the time will come for that. There is no rush whatsoever to do any of that heavy relationship stuff, it will come eventually and if you want to prolong that honeymoon period then just keep things nice and slow.
