I hope this can be found well enough and that it's in the right forum area.
I have an interesting question to ask my fellow micechatters that might get a pretty good discussion going here. It's one that might be asked on Dr Phil or Loveline, or any other advice forum.
How do 2 people find that "new love" feeling in their "seasoned" relationship?
So let me break that question down so those will know what I mean. First, by new love, (and some here may know exactly what I mean) is that feeling you get when you're first with someone. When the two of you hit it off so well, there's good chemistry, and you just can't stop thinking about the person. And you can't wait to see them again. This is often found in teen love, but a lot of adults experience it too.
And what I mean by seasoned, is when two people have been together for quite some time. And this can be before or after marriage. So yes, this question applies to both those that aren't married yet, and those that have been married.
Because once you get past that point of "new love" and the two people start to get "comfortable" with each other, their walls and their guards drop. The inside parts of them start to come out, those inhibitions that most people reflexively hide when they're trying to find a new person. And when two people get past that point, where they've been together for some time and their guards drop, whether they're married or not, their relationship can sometimes hit that rut where things start to go dull. Granted, not everyone experiences this. But there are those that do, and perhaps some of those are on here and would also like the answer to that question. It kinda goes along with the saying "How can 2 people spice up their love life?" But it's asked in a more broad way, focused on the beginning of a relationship.
So, how does a couple find that new love feeling again, when they've been together for a long time?
