The best way to keep love alive in a long-term relationship is to constantly surprise your partner, like Robert Pattinson does GF Kristen Stewart
Gentlemen of the world, take some lessons in loving from Robert Pattinson. Although Valentine’s Day only comes once a year, R-Patz knows to shower lady love Kristen Stewart with romantic gestures as often as possible. In fact, the two have been spicing up their work days while filming the last two Twilight films, Breaking Dawn parts 1 & 2, with seductive, candlelit date nights in Baton Rouge!
When filming is finished, the two vampiric lovebirds head to The Loft at Perkins Rowe for champagne, brie, dark corners and privacy so they can be totally alone for some uninterrupted BF/GF time. Rob also knows that it’s the little things that count, like specially requesting a rare bottle of champagne (the high end brand Ace of Spades) that he knows K-Stew loves.
Too often in relationships young lovers begin acting like old married couples, and yes, there is comfort in that. But when you and your boyfriend act like besties all the time, you should begin to worry. You want to love and be in love with your partner, and not just be his buddy.
So while, like R-Patz, he’s planning romantic date nights for you, there are things you can do to keep your romance fresh, as well. It’s the oldest and most obvious trick in the book, but instead of wearing your usual shorts and T-shirt look to bed (like Bella does in the Twilight flicks), spice things up with some racy lingerie. Leave little love notes where he won’t automatically see them; in his shoes, on his windshield, in his pocket. Don’t make them sappy little sonnets, make them hot little haikus.
Relationships, like everything else in life, are hard work. They require patience, skill and sometimes, surprises. Don’t let yourself become too complacent. Love is many things, but it should never be boring!
