Treat each other, and do things for one another like you did when you first met. With adjustments of course due to age./kids..etc..
When couples first get together. It's exciting, it's romantic, things happen that make the heart flutter and make you yearn to be together.. We feel that way, because we actively pursue one another and do things to make each other feel that way. We are trying to "win" someone over. We are trying to show someone that "hey, I am "The one", I'm the one that will make you happy, that you want to be with"..etc.. Once we are in long term relationships. Those things go bye bye in most relationships at some point and time. And one day we wake up wondering "hey, where did those feelings go".. KWIM.. Those feelings stick around, as long as we are actively working towards feeling them and making our partner feel them.
Put in the effort you did in the beginning, and those feelings can/will come back.
