Falling in love is one of life’s greatest gifts. But it definitely has its challenges.

Let’s face it, intimate relationships can be complicated affairs. One minute you’re whispering sweet nothings to each other. The next, you’re squabbling like school kids.

Moreover, the experience of being ‘in love’ doesn’t last that long. The initial swooning, crooning, can’t-keep-your-hands-off-each-other phase typically continues for a grand total of 12 months!

It’s no wonder that many people struggle to know how to maintain a relationship in the long term. Frankly, they’re hard work at the best of times. And now COVID-19s struck, they’ve suddenly become even harder!

Whether you’re isolating together or apart, the current pandemic presents a host of problems for couples everywhere. Are you looking for advice on weathering the storm and coming through it even stronger? Let us help.

Sustain Healthy Romantic Relationships When You’re Isolating Together

Self-isolating with your partner can be tough.

You’re in each other’s space all the time, away from your usual social circles and with little to do. Needless to say, the whole experience can put a strain on the relationship!

Here are a few top tips on dealing with the particular problems you might come up against:

The last thing you want is to leave things unsaid. Frustration can lead to anger, which is the last thing you need in what’s already a tough situation. Having an honest, mature, grown-up conversation will clear the air and ensure you work together better.

Let’s face it, there’s not a lot else to do! You may as well jump in the sack to do something productive with your time!

More importantly, though, physical intimacy is a sure-fire way to bring you closer together emotionally as well. Is Lockdown stress getting in the way of your libidos? There are natural remedies can help restore order and get you back into the groove.

Have Housebound Date Nights

Just because you can’t go out doesn’t mean you can’t go on dates!

It just takes a bit of creativity. You can’t beat a nice home-cooked candle-lit dinner. How about a movie-night, curled up on the sofa together with popcorn?
