"I think that men know how to romance a woman and most do it well, at least for a time, otherwise women wouldn't marry them. The problem is that most of them begin to rest on their laurels."
Amen, Mr. Sparks. So for those of you who are ready to get off your 'laurels', here are 3 more ideas to help you become a romance god...
- Secretly Plan a Date, Weekend Getaway or Trip. Figure out the logistics on your own - who will look after the kids/pets/house if needed? Don't tell her where you are going until you are on your way. Just tell her what to wear and/or what to pack. She already knows all about you, but you can still add that feeling of mystery if you're creative. All that planning will definitely pay off - us girls tend to get a little wild when we get away from our everyday lives...
- Tell her why you fell in love with her in the first place. Maybe it's been so long that you've forgotten, but if you think about it, it will all come back to you. Describe it in detail for her, what you thought when you first saw her or first realized that she was the one. What are all the little things that made you sure about her. What are the ways that she impresses you now?
- Don't be afraid of a little PDA. I'm not suggesting you stick your tongue down her throat at her family reunion. Be subtle about it - hold her hand, let your fingers rest on the small of her back when you walk together, or on her leg when you are at a show together. How did you touch her when you were first dating and you couldn't get enough of her? Yeah. Do that.
Alright, that's it for today. I hope this series of posts have been helpful for you! Drop me a line and let me know how it's going.
I'm off to get ready. My husband planned a date night for us. That man's got game.
