You might think that making a Christmas list is for children. However making a Christmas list for your partner might just help them find the perfect gift for you. Your list can include things you would like to have that might no buy for yourself. When you are writing your list don't just put on it material things. You can include things on your list that don't cost a thing. Things like a kiss, or a massage, you could even ask for a romantic Christmas eve dinner with wine and candles. This is a great idea if you don't have much money for presents. Giving feelings of love and special favors is just the perfect gift. Make up little coupons for things like kisses or back massages and wrap them up. You still get the excitement of Christmas and your partner will love his/her gifts. This way you don't have to wait in line to return them.

Lack of anything is not good. For example lack of food leads to hunger, lack of exercise leads to being fat, and lack of love leads to feeling lonely. We need to take a good hard look at what our relationship is lacking. Is affection missing? then you need to find a way to get more affection in your relationship. Is trust missing? Then trust is what you need to make your relationship special. Is passion missing? Them the two of you need to find a way to make passion a part of your relationship. What happens is that when you lack something in your relationship you will seek it out somewhere else. That is why I feel there are so many relationship doomed. Instead of searching for a way to find it within our relationship with communication and working together, we look else where when you are not getting what we need. So today take a good hard look at your relationship and find what is missing. Go to your partner and express you feelings, ask for their help, ask for what they feel it lacking and work together to build a wonderful combination of a relationship. You have to give and take to balance your relationship, don't be the one that upsets this balance.

Have you ever found yourself at the end of the day with no energy or time left for your relationship. You worked all day or ran the kids around to practices, school, and all other activities. Maybe you have done housework all day and it gets to the end of the night the kids are in bed and you just want to go to sleep yourself and get rested for the same thing tomorrow. This is so common for many couples as the struggle to find time to fit their relationship into the mix. I bet however if you really look at what you do during the day you will find time bandits that could spare you a lot of time. Start looking around and save time for your partner and your relationship this way. Do you watch television or play online games during the day? Then cut them out and save that time for your partner, do you run multiple times around town? Maybe you could combine your trips to save time. How about even saving time with the housework by giving the kids incentive to help out by giving them special favors at a later time. If you relationship is important it is worth finding ways to make time for it. A dinner out can take as little as an hour, a hour snuggling can be more relaxing then making sure the house is straight and being intimate can help you find a deeper sleep and recharge you batteries not only for your relationship but for the next days hustle and bustle. Use your time for your relationship as a reward and you will find the time you need.

Has life got you down, thing seem to be going bad, or you just don't feel the best. This is most likely stress. That stupid little thing that effects us in such a negative way, that it causes problems the other parts of our life. When we feel stressed we get upset with the ones we love easily, every little problem seems like a major issue, and we actually feel bad. As hard as it might seem this is the time you need to fall into the arms of your lover. Let them bring you up, tell them you are stressed and need their help. Instead of battling this problem by yourself let them give you encouraging words, or help with the problems. Sometimes just talking about your stress can make it seem less, or just spreading it out and letting your partner hold some of it up will help. When you feel stressed most people want to shy away from intimacy and yet this is one of the best stress relievers. So when you feel stressed through some passion at your partner and enjoy something that is pure and natural. Put yourself into the love making and feel the connection and let the stress be gone. Sure the problems will still be there but your mind will look at them differently when you have the love and passion of your partner within you. Don't go it alone use your partners energy to help you, put your pride aside and feel the love.
