Stuck in a rut

"People (not just couples) get stuck in a rut when they keep doing the same old thing time and time again," says Ali.

But if you've realized your relationship's in a bit of a time-out, you've taken the first step already, and it's not too late to address the issue.

Try to focus on what exactly your relationship is now missing. Maybe you don't share moments like you used to, or forget to compliment each other.

Or maybe the sex has got too routine, or is not in your routine at all anymore!

By figuring out what you do and don't want from your relationship, you can start working on the issues at hand to bring back that touch of magic.

And you're not alone - Ali says that getting stuck in a love-rut is a common occurrence, and one that can be fixed.

"It is totally ‘normal’ in the sense that it’s ‘common’ but that doesn’t mean it has to be like that," he says.
