Re-Romanticize Your Partnership

According to ancient Chinese wisdom, summer is the season for partnership, warmth, joy and passion. Bring summer’s fire to your relationship by doing this exercise with your partner:

  • On separate sheets of paper each write the heading, “I feel most loved and cared about when you…”
  • Underneath, write all the things your partner does – or once did – that make you feel most loved and cared about.
  • Read your lists out loud to each other and then exchange them.

Commit with your partner to do at least two of the items on the list each week for each other, without being asked or reminded.
