  • How about planning a meal of his favorite food and after that spend the evening watching his favorite movie?

  • lay with him and just talk, or if he has a hard time talking play a sorta truth or dare kind of game and ask the questions you want to. Also this may sound stupid but one of my favriote times with my husband is if we play a board game of some sort with eachother. Also you can put your daughter to bed and have a romantic little picnic in your livingroom on the floor [with romantic music, candlelight and the nice dishes] hope that was a help to you.

  • Go sit on his lap or lay beside him and tell him you love him and you don't want to fight anymore.

  • My SO is way too serious all the time. he's always tense.He's military. I'm retired. We used to fight over stupid things and one day I decided it takes 2 to argue and I stopped. I just started agreeing with him or saying "well that's one way to look at it". I also started doing things like walking out of the bedroom with a bag over my head or dressed to the nines and wearing over stuffed bullwinkle house shoes. Just something to catch his attention and make him laugh or at least shake his head and smile. One time we started getting romantic and he lifted my skirt to see I had on no panties but there was a glow in the dark stick to guide him to the spot in case he got lost on the way! Just have fun. Be spontaneous and silly. Let your inner child come out to play. My SO complains but he keeps coming back after 2 yrs. I also noticed that he is more observant about what I wear or what's in the room. It's like now he expects something fun.

  • Slow down. Be a friend. Would he enjoy having his family over? Plan a get together so he can enjoy all his siblings or friends. Have a bonfire. Would he enjoy a good movie? Have some waiting for him after work, and popcorn or some beer.

  • REmind him why you guys are together in the first place. Ask a neighbour or a family member to take your little one for the night or atleast a couple hours and take the time to remember what made you two fall in love with eachother and TALK about i. Talking is so important to make it work. Tell him everything you love about him, even the little things, like the way he used to smile when ever you did.... whatever. Try those things or something like that, it make him smile and you sound like you could both use that right now!
