A Dash of Mystery Keeps the Love Alive

It’s been said that mystery is the spice of life. It’s definitely the spice that keeps the romance going! Even if you have been with your partner for years, you can hold a bit of mystique that keeps your lover guessing.

Here are a few tips on how to rev up his interest:

Close the bathroom door. After several years of togetherness, the small, private things you once did can easily fall to the wayside. It’s not uncommon for long-term lovers – or even short-term ones! – to leave the bathroom door open during their shower or while doing the normal, everyday things – such as shaving your legs or combing your hair.

Surprise your lover by closing the door before you do whatever it is you went into the bathroom to do. They will wonder what you are doing behind that door, and when you come out smelling fresh and clean and looking lovely, they will wonder even more. If they ask why you are closing the door after all this time, give them a sweet smile and whisper, “I’m being mysterious” before you shut the door and turn the lock.

Go out with your friends – and don’t tell your man where you’re going. Remember when your lover got a bit jealous of who you might be with and where you might be going? That kind of concern about your whereabouts can do wonders for your self-esteem. Go out with your girlfriends and make it a true “girls night” – even if you’re just going down to the local mall to hit the big clearance sale – and don’t tell your lover where you are going. Keep it a secret and watch him try to solve the mystery!

Flirt with his friends. If you’re the brave type and you know your partner is secure in your relationship, don’t be above a little harmless flirting. Complimenting his friend on that great golf swing or the new shirt he’s wearing won’t hurt anything – but it will make your lover pay a bit more attention to what you’re saying, and who knows? He might try to spruce up his act, too.

Keep a journal – and let him have a peek. Write down your thoughts and feelings. Make a point of keeping your journal out in the open, where your partner sees you write in it from time to time. If he shows interest in what you’re putting down on paper, offer to let him read a page or two. But don’t let him read the whole thing! The thought that you are writing down bits of your deepest thoughts and feelings will intrigue him, and he will want to know more.

There are so many ways to keep the mystery going – what other ways can you think of to intrigue your partner?

  1. Great tips to add an element of intrigue in to the relationship. Especially the bath room one felt so right for me. Every one get the habit of leaving the doors open and go for a shower or shit. Closing that avenue for a few minutes can make a hell of difference in your partner’s curiosity level!!
