How to keep the Romance in your Relationship
In a previous post I heard these words “To the World you are Someone, but to this Someone you are the World" and I sigh. I do not usually write more than once about a specific themed topics in the same week, but with it being Valentine’s Day, I could not pass up the chance. Yeah guys, I got the memo, this is the last one, I promise!
For those who are not with anyone this day, one day soon, someone will walk into your life and you will know why it didn't work out with anyone else.
On this day all romantics get to show their stuff to the special someone who rocks their world. I want to share with you some do and don'ts that will carry you forward through the rest of the year.
- Do not limit the romance to only one day a year. Keeping the romance all year with your special someone does not have to involve a dozen roses, perfumes or dinner at a five star restaurant. Making an effort to remember little things will keep the spark in even the longest running relationship. Remember to look into their eyes, and touch their hand as if it were the first time. Whisper into their ear and tell them how much your care and mean to them.
- Take the time to see your partner. Keep their gaze a second or two longer, just long enough so they know that you truly see them.
- Respect your partner. Allow your partner to be themselves, have their own interests and give them space to express themselves. Do not try to change them but embrace the differences that attracted you to them.
And, now I saved the most important for last.
- Respect yourself. Do not be afraid to speak up and ask for what you want in your relationship. Don't be afraid to say what is not acceptable and what excites you with your partner. Do not lose yourself to your partner but continue to grow as individuals as well as together within the relationship. It is by growing that we truly complement each other.
They say that the little things in life matter in relationship. The above is my list.
Have a day filled with love... and hugs and kisses,
