How to Date Your Husband
By Lisa Daily

After a few years of marriage, a lot of people find they don’t have anything to talk about but who left their toenails under the couch, and what happened on Scandal. If you’re in a long-term relationship that’s lost its sizzle, now’s the time to figure out how to get that sizzle back.

The key to revving up romance is to bring one new element to date night:

Change the Place.
Go to tango class rather than spending another Saturday night at Outback, or get freaky in the guest room (or even the back yard), instead of the usual romp in your own bed.

Change the Subject.
Instead of talking about the kids, what’s for dinner, or what happened on the Spam account, ask questions like you did when you were dating: What was your college essay about? What’s the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you as a kid? Where’s the weirdest place you’ve ever gotten lucky?

Change what you Wear.
Forget jeans and dump the track suit. Get all dressed up for a big night out, even if you just hit the local Denny’s. The act of spending time on your appearance in anticipation of your date will make you feel more romantic before you even get your leggings on.

Change your Color.
Wear red, and lots of hit. Dye your hair or slink out in something scarlet. Wearing red increases your heart rate (and his) and mimics attraction — just enough to kick-start a slow night.

Change your Scent.
A study at the University of Chicago showed men associate the scents of cinnamon and vanilla with love. When you’re looking to cook up a little romance, pop some of those ready-to-bake cinnamon rolls in the oven, or wear a cinnamon-vanilla scented perfume. (We love the Man-Magnet Parfum Glace) Trust me ladies, it works like catnip for men.
