For many, staying attracted to your partner can be hard when you're in a long-term relationship. Even in a new relationship, finding ways to enhance your attraction doesn't always come easily. But having lower levels of attraction doesn't mean that your relationship is doomed. Sometimes it's just that you're in a funk or that you and your partner haven't been taking the time to appreciate each other. When you've been with someone for a long time, that initial spark may die down due to a variety of factors, which is totally normal. And if you're attempting to feel more attracted to a new partner, time is actually important factor too.
"The best way feel more attracted to your partner is to give it some time, especially when it seems like all the other boxes on your checklist are checked off," Lori Salkin, Senior Matchmaker and Dating Coach, tells Bustle. "As you get to know the other person and transition from strangers to friends, the attraction can and often does come."
If you've realized that your attraction to your partner has gone down or not reached the level you hoped, here are some ways to feel more attracted to your partner, no matter how long you've been together, according to relationship experts.
