2. Have two new fun and interesting activities to try each month. Trying new and exciting things will keep that playful spark alive.

3. Listen to each other. Communication is key.

4. Surprise each other with little tokens from the heart. This just shows at least someone in the relationship listens to what they like and care. Guys this will score some big points with the ladies.
