In every relationship, there comes a point where things start to feel less fiery and more friendly.

The truth is, all relationships start to lose their luster at some point or another.

The problem? People tend to get passive. “Relationships grow stale generally because the couple avoids confronting the issue,” says Franklin Porter, Ph.D., a psychotherapist in New York. According to relationship experts, falling in love, or back in love, is an intentional act. In other words, there are plenty of things you can do with your partner to turn things around when a relationship is starting to feel meh.

Here, experts offer the seven best ways to fall back in love with your partner.

“When two people feel their relationship has gone stale, it may feel to them as if they’ve grown apart. But very often the problem is they’ve failed to grow apart,” says Stephen Snyder, M.D., sex and relationship therapist and author of Love Worth Making. The exciting feels you get when you’re first falling in love with someone stem from the idea that you’re getting to know someone who’s totally new and different, he says. Taking that journey together is exciting. “Once you’ve become a couple, the next big risk is to become two separate people,” Snyder says. “It can be quite relationship-enhancing when you pursue a passion that your partner has absolutely no interest in. This gives your partner a chance to truly see you as ‘other.’” Take the cooking class your partner was never interested in, solo. Sign up for a Crossfit gym even if bae is a die-hard yogi. If there’s someplace you’ve always wanted to go that’s not on your S.O.’s travel list, bring your bestie instead.
