How To Reconnect With Your Partner


Relationships have ups and downs, and most of the time, you will get through it all together. From time to time, though, there can be moments where you feel you have disconnected from your partner. 


Sometimes we know the cause, and other times we can’t be sure. There are a few things that you might consider to help you to reconnect with your partner

Relationship first


The tricky thing with life is that many different things happen: work, children, and other family commitments. A lot can come in front of our relationships. 


When you know for sure that there are things in your relationship you need to fix, you’re going to need to make the tough decision to put your relationship above everything else for a while. 


If possible, book some time from work, ask someone to watch the children, and have some time just to be together. 



The older we get, the more health issues arise, and sometimes both our partner and ourselves try to keep them to ourselves. It can sometimes be an embarrassment, worry, or a combination of things. 


However, it can be essential to share these things, and in any case, it can make us even stronger as a couple. If you notice things aren’t quite right, it can be worth considering commons signs of low testosterone and mental health issues.


Instead of forcing the issue, just make sure they know that they can come to you with anything that is worrying them. 



If you have both been avoiding conversations about your relationship and feelings for a while – it can be even harder to start those conversations. 


Talking can help to clarify everything that you have been going through separately, and cast light on anything that you should both know about. 


It can help to head into the conversation with some idea of what you want to say – but be more prepared to listen. We often want to talk but haven’t made space for the other person to say what they need to. 


Think about what is working and what isn’t, and if they feel the same, you can plan to fix it. 

Compliment them


When was the last time you complimented each other, and when was the last time you complimented them? Compliments are small and easy ways to sprinkle your partner with affection – so they know you care about what they do. 


It can often be the case that one partner is the receiver of the compliments and the other is the giver – if you are typically the receiver, then start dishing out more. 

Love language


Everyone likes to be loved a little bit differently, and as we grow up, that can change. Once we needed gifts and hand-holding, we might now need service and support. You might know that the way you need to be loved has changed, but have you checked to see if your partner’s needs have changed? 


It can be fun to take a love language test to see how you can better meet each other’s needs. 


Of course, there is a piece of the puzzle that is often a point of contention within relationships, and is definitely a fun way to reconnect with your partner. Be sure to check out What Keeps My Marriage Sexy? – Ask Dr. Ho
