Plan some 'us time'

Remember when you first got together? All that time you spent alone, just the two of you?

As the first stages of lust cool and we get back to a more normal way of living, it can be easy to get swept along by life's challenges. But to stay strong, relationships need work and their own space and time. The good news is that this kind of work is fun!

Rather than pinning your hopes on a fortnight of holiday bliss months from now when you can be together, try to do something for yourselves at least every couple of days, or plan a 'date night' once a week. 

Go for a romantic walk, switch off your phones and kick back on the sofa, give each other a back rub or have a long lie with breakfast in bed.

And there's never any harm in saying 'I love you'.
