New York: Believe it! Striking up a friendship with another couple in which you discuss personal details of your life may bring you closer to your own partner.
Researchers suggest picking a double-date activity that facilitates personal disclosure this Valentine's Day would be a good idea.
Going on a double date may be more effective at re-igniting passion in your own relationship than the classic candle-lit dinner for two.
“Passionate love is one of the first dimensions of love to decrease in couples over time as the newness of a relationship begins to wane,” said Keith Welker, a doctoral student at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.
