Feel like roommates? Here are 4 easy ways to reconnect with your partner

Set aside time for check-ins

Setting aside time monthly or weekly is crucial to discuss how you and your partner are doing in the relationship and as two individuals. This time can be used to talk about any needs that might be going unmet by either party. You can even get specific and discuss if there’s something particular you need more of in terms of intimacy, communication, or in your sex life. Use this time to make sure you both have a deep understanding of what’s working for each of you and what isn’t.


Commit to date nights at least one day each week

Date nights are the perfect time to reconnect with your partner. There’s nothing wrong with a spontaneous night out during the week, but there is something to be said about putting in a little bit more effort and being intentional about date night. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant but just make sure the both of you are mentally present and make an effort to relearn one another.
