Whether you’re nurturing a budding Dreams, tells WebMD. “Make these private times special by not including others.”

But don’t make the mistake of limiting your interaction to designated couple time. Try to enjoy each other’s company for at least a few minutes every day, especially first thing in the morning, at the end of the workday and right before bed. “At those times talk about positive things,” Wachs says. “It makes a big impression.” Make a special point of greeting each other at the end of the workday. If you’re home first, stop what you’re doing when your partner arrives and spend a moment together. “Act like [he or she] is important,” Wachs advises, “not just the postman stopping by with the mail.”

Touch More Often

It relieves tension and shows your partner that you care. “Physically being in contact with your partner breaks through a lot of ice,” Wachs says. “Go out of your way to kiss and hug during the day. Always sleep together in the same bed. Just assume you’re going to have sex every night. … It’s hard to fight if you’re having great sex.”
