Tip No. 2 For Getting the Romance Back After the Holiday Stress Is Behind You

Patty's back! Check out her second tip on how to bring the romance back after the holiday stress is behind you below:

Make an effort to do little things for your partner. A recent study showed that 83 percent of couples held hands while in the beginning of their marriage versus only 38 percent after a decade together. Compliments, surprise notes, thoughtful gifts, or gestures can go a long way toward keeping you feeling close and connected. So make a New Year’s resolution to change any complacent or negative patterns and become a better, more supportive partner in the years to come.

Yep, little things are often the best things you can do for someone. My guy and I still have a young relationship...two years, however ina previous 4 year relationship, all of the holding hands, etc was gone by year 2. I still have those cute things going on in my holding hands. Too bad I can't get a little note a few days a week! that would be spectacular. I guess he makes up for it in carrying the heaviest groceries and all that manly stuff.
