When it comes to long-term relationships, it becomes harder to maintain excitement in bed. Mostly because things like routine intervene, or even stress.
However, researchers have recently come up with the answer to this dilemma. Apparently, the key to keeping the fire burning in your love life with a long-term partner is responsiveness. What does this mean?
The study revealed that a deep level of understanding and the willingness to commit to the relationship are crucial.
In other words, our partners must be responsive and show affection and appreciation as well be willing to invest so that our sex lives thrive.
Someone who is responsive to our needs and emotions will definitely not dismiss or ignore them. Instead, they will do everything in their power to solve any potential issues and work the differences that arise.
It also comes down to awareness. If you are more in touch with your own emotions, you will obviously be able to read those of your partner’s better as well. So what lies at the heart of an exciting love life is how deep your connection with your partner is.
Here is what the author of the study has to say about this:
Our research shows that partners who are responsive to each other outside the bedroom are able to maintain their sexual desire.
Professor Gurit Birnbaum also states that responsiveness is a form of intimacy and that it deals directly with the wellness of the other. He adds:
When a mate is truly responsive, the relationship feels special and unique and he or she is perceived as valued and desirable.
If you are able to maintain this over they years, then you may have found your one true soulmate.
