9 Small Mistakes That Can Create Boredom In Your Relationship, Even If You're With "The One"

Andrew Zaeh for Bustle

Many people believe that once they find "The One," their relationship will be 100 percent easy, and they'll never feel bored with their partner again. But that's just not true. All relationships go through boring patches, and all couples need to do things to keep their initial spark alive. And that's OK.

In fact, it's common to feel some level of boredom — even with your soulmate. "All relationships start out as exciting, but some of that fades as you get to know the other person and what used to be 'new' becomes common," Jonathan Bennett, relationship and dating expert at Double Trust Dating, tells Bustle. "This is normal and all couples have to realize that no relationship will always be exciting and new all the time." You're going to have lazy Tuesday nights, and the occasional boring weekend. But that doesn't mean your relationship is a bad one.

All it takes is a little effort to turn things around. As Bennett says "Many relationships turn boring because both partners have stopped trying to inject newness, passion, and excitement into the relationship. All of these qualities are necessary to keep a relationship healthy." Here are a few mistakes you and your partner should try to avoid to prevent your relationship from becoming boring, according to experts.
