“Gentlemen start your engines!” Your Romance engines that is.
Let’s talk today about the time you spend focused on your spouse. I am going to give you a simple idea and tell you how it helped me over a rough spot.
Making plans each day to spend quality time together often becomes a hassle due to our hectic schedules going in two separate directions.
Sometimes it’s hard to get all excited making special plans for your time together because life has sapped your energy.
But it can be different for you with just a few slight adjustments.
Romantic gestures are not always the huge date nights where you sweep your bride off to some spa for a massage prior to a lovely dinner out and then to a hotel for hot sex.
Yes that sounds wonderful but I am talking about every day romance. Those tiny little bursts of emotional laden signals between two lovers which keep the home fires burning.
Romance means finding methods to strategically offer romantic gestures to each other every day.
For Instance Try This idea:
Get yourself some erasable markers and exchange lovely messages to each other.
(Please keep these words targeted at your wife’s heart and mind.)
A crude gesture will often backfire on you so be kind to her. You will not need
to become a modern day “Shakespeare”, just be yourself.
Pursue your wife. Let her know you are thinking about her.
As you consider doing this marker suggestion, you might think, I can’t write this sort of gussy stuff.
Please cast off that negativity and chase your partner as though your marriage depended on it. It does you know! Have some fun with this and be creative.
These thoughts can be as basic as “Remember I am thinking about you today!” or “You looked marvelous in that … (name the dress or blouse she was wearing).”
Elaine and I often write notes for each other at many different and seemingly insignificant times without having any specific reason to jot these private messages for each other.
Still there are those special times of needed endearment we will remind each other of our dedication for each other.
One time in particular comes to my mind about my bride’s note to me.I came home to a barren house.
Elaine was on a grand-mom mission unlike any she had ever undertaken. She spent four days with our youngest granddaughter in West Virginia, just the two of them.
Our son and his wife were working their week-end for the Air National Guard. Elaine loved it but I was alone! We are extremely proud of them for serving our nation.
When I walked into our bedroom, I felt close to her even though she was miles away.
Even though she was gone, that empty house filled with sunshine by three simple
sentences written on our bedroom dresser mirror;
“I love you . . . I need you . . . I miss you already”
Elaine wrote this short, touching message for me obviously before she left. I still missed her presence, yet due to her message, I knew she was thinking about me.
These posts are romantic idea starters. Hopefully they give you some interesting initial ideas for you to expand upon. Keep looking thorough the posts under a specific category and read the related other posts.
So look for several methods to apply this erasable marker technique this week.
Here is another way to get a bit more cozy with her.
Talk about some of your past romantic times together.
Here are some questions to generate some quality conversation with her:
1 – What did I do in our past that you felt I was being romantic for you?
2 – Honey, what did you think was cute or pleasant about those times?
3 – Tell me a couple of other ideas you have about the topic of us being romantic together.
These questions are to help get the communication flowing between you two about romance. and get both of your “engines” started!
Let me know how I can help you guys!
