Flirting in Long-Term Relationships

Group Therapy: Staying Flirtatious in Long-Term Relationships

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

My fiancé and I went out last night to a birthday party for one of his friends. We had a good time and got to see a lot of people we hadn't seen in a while. Both of us are naturally flirty people, not in an over the top or boundary-crossing way but just joking around with friends of the opposite sex.

Anyway watching him with his female friends I realized that since we moved in together six months ago, he really doesn't flirt with me anymore. We have a great relationship, but it just seems like these days it revolves more around cuddling on the couch, on date nights we end up just talking about how to train the dog, the wedding, buying a house, blah blah blah.


We do genuinely have fun together and are deeply in love but I just miss being fun and light-hearted and flirty with him. If I try with him sometimes I feel like he looks at me crazy or brushes me off. I know this is a common thing in long-term relationships, but is it something I just have to deal with or is there something I can do?
