What would you all do if you lost your spark, passion, and that "in love" feeling! Any ideas or advice!

Well sometimes I just don't like him or have nothing to say to him. Had some uncomfortable date nights in which we just sat there starting at each other. So we read news from various places and pursue seperate interests so when we are together there is still something to connect over.

We have before but just talking about it fixed it almost immediately. It's amazing what communication can do! Talking things through and being honest and open can heal almost anything. It makes you feel like a team and that you can make it through anything. We didn't have any serious problems though... just the usual lack of time together and crappy communication skills, lol.

We had a time when we got in a rut and lost the love.
We were desperate to recapture it so we got friends to stay at the house and way h the kids and we took a weekend away and stayed at a local romantic inn. We also watched FireProof- it opened our eyes a lot.

We have watched it many times.  I have the 40 day love dare and the year long love dare. I can't get my husband to do eithier of them.

Nope.  My ADHD makes me impulsive and unpredictable.  Sometimes that's a bad thing but when it comes to our sex life, it's definitely a good thing.  I will cock tease him all day long and when we go to bed, he practically tears my clothes off.

It's so much more then just sex!

Yeah, we've lost our spark before. Like right now for instance, I'm pregnant... My spark doesn't feel so sparkly...

 I think losing the spark is a pretty common thing, especially if you've been married for a long time.  Spending time, just the two of us, like going out for 'dates' helps us keep it going.  Going out for dinner and drinks, just the two of us, or to dinner and a movie.  What helped recently is watching a bunch of old home movies, in our earlier days.  We didn't do it to try to get any sparks going, but it did it anyway.
