Often when in a long term relationship it’s easy to get a little lazy with your appearance. We like to dress up and look sexy during the honeymoon phase. We wear our designer or hip clothing that makes us feel confident to work. When we get home it’s easy to get into the habit of stripping down and putting on some much need comfy clothes. When both sides start getting into this routine the sexiness, the allure, the chivalry can slow down. The couple starts hanging out with each other rather then being together.
Depending on what you wear to class, the lame 9-5 or the air conditioned office it’s completely fair to want to get changed when you get home. Do get changed. Do get comfortable. But instead of getting into the comfortable cotton shorts, yoga pants or that perfect pair of worn in jeans that may or may not have a hole in it. Put on some nice weekend day clothing. Something you’d wear out to a nice bar for lunch or shopping in a nice shop. You can go as far as even organizing your closet accordingly. M-F day wear, M-F evening wear, going out/party wear, comfy wear. Though that might just be me being anal about closet organization.
The idea is to keep looking good for your partner. Keep yourself feeling confident and comfortable after a long day. While there will be plenty of nights that your yoga pants or cotton shorts will be a must have on. Try to keep this in mind. From time to time turn up your style at home. Dress up. Allure and arouse your partner. This well keep your eyes on each more then on the TV.

Today’s Zoosk success story couple hails from Wentzville, Missouri. Jeanne writes:
“I first winked at Scott on June 28th, but he didn’t respond until 19 days later. I’m 49 and live in Wentzville and Scott is 46 but lives in O’Fallon. We “connected” almost immediately and spoke to each other almost every day. Once we exchanged phone numbers, we talked for 2-3 hours every night. Both of us were quite new to online dating and Zoosk. In fact, I was the first gal to wink at Scott, but it took him 19 days to respond. We’re both dog lovers, both have labs, so it seemed only fitting that our first date was a doggy play date at the dog park. It was raining, but we met there anyway. The dog park was closed, so we decided to sit under a pavilion in the rain and talk. Our dogs became best buds right away and played together in the rain for hours. We were both so excited and nervous about meeting each other that we were shaking. We stayed there for almost 8 hours talking and we didn’t leave until dark. The rain turned out to be a blessing. The park was empty and quiet and it was the most romantic date of my life. Since then, we have both looked forward to the rain and have even had some outdoor romantic dates to remind us of our first date. We both fell in love that day and we know that we will be together for the rest of our lives. Somehow, I have managed to stay single for 49 years and had convinced myself that I never wanted to get married. Thank you Zoosk for providing me with the tools to meet the most wonderful man in the world!” –Jeanne and Scott from Wentzville, Missouri
