We never flirt with each other anymore. If you've been with your man for a while, you might find yourself saying or thinking this phrase.
But think about the things you do for your husband each day. You haven't stopped flirting; the way you flirt has just changed over the years. Your longing glances have turned into folding your spouse's laundry.
That passion you felt at the beginning of your relationship isn't lost. It's still there, and it's stronger than ever. Keep that passion in your marriage with these 10 adorable flirtatious gestures:
1. Do a double take
Take a second glance as he's getting ready in the morning. Even men can feel insecure about themselves sometimes, so don't hold back on letting him know how handsome he looks.
2. Send a cute text in the middle of the day
Let him know he's on your mind with a text. Make his entire day with a message telling him how much you love him or a selfie of your beautiful, smiling face.
Add a little spice to your relationship by being spontaneous. Go on an impromptu date, even if it's going out for fast-food at midnight for "second dinner." Doing unique things help you break out of your typical routine and can add excitement to your relationship.
4. Do something different for date night
If you aren't able to go on spontaneous dates, switch things up during your planned date nights! Try something new together.
5. Hug him as soon as you walk in the door
Wrap your arms around your husband when you come home. This adorable gesture will remind him how much you care about and missed him.
6. Use words to your advantage
Don't underestimate the power of words. Next time you see your husband, compliment how great he looks (and don't censor any intimate details).
7. Meet up for lunch
Take your lunch break together. Meet up at a local restaraunt or pack a lunch and eat outside. If you have time to spare, take a short walk together (hand holding is a must).
8. Bring home a surprise
Bring home something your husband will love while you're grocery shopping or running errands. It'll catch him off guard and might leave him wondering what it's for. If he asks, answer his curious questions with "I was thinking of you" and a peck on the cheek.
He'll know you were thinking of him when he sees his favorite meal sitting on the kitchen table.
10. Bake a yummy treat
Even if food isn't the way to your man's stomach, a delicious treat certainly won't hurt! Bake something for dessert or as a late-night snack after the kids have gone to bed.
11. Do a chore for him
Simple everyday tasks are constant reminders of your love for each other. Find small things you can do for your spouse, and don't forget to express your appreciation for everything he does for you and your family.
No matter how you and your spouse flirt, whether it's with winks across the room or by cleaning the house together, it's your own way of showing love for one another.
