There’s no magic bullet or divine secret to maintaining a romantic relationship as every couple is different. But if there’s one thing that’s almost always guaranteed to help, it’s more communication. That communication can be a simple as a flirt.  When it comes to communicating, texting has made it more convenient, especially at work. But usually those texts involve plans for the weekend, who is picking up the kids from school or what sounds good for dinner.  When was the last time you made an attempt to get your loved one laughing?  Enter the maintenance text. The key to a good maintenance text is that it doesn’t convey any important information like directions, plans, requests, or bland questions like “How’s it going?” The text should be an inside joke between the two of you, a funny photo or link you think the other person would like, a bizarre dream you had about them, or anything that simply says you were thinking of the other person. If you’re early on in your relationship, the maintenance text is great for when it’s been a couple of days and you haven’t seen each other. It shows the other person that you listen to them and remember the little things, like how much they like monkeys, or how they can’t stand it when people wear ties with short sleeve shirts, or that you enjoyed watching a certain TV show with them. But it’s also good for longstanding couples who want to rekindle the romance that may have fizzled some in the last couple years.
