Awakening Through Love

Romance



I think that most people like romance.  We each have our own ideas of what words or actions display romance.  When we show romance towards our partners, we are actually showing our love.  It makes the other person feel special and helps to build up their self-esteem and confidence! 

I brought this up to my husband recently and he said that when I went out a few mornings in the cold/snow at 6am to warm up his truck, that he found that to be romantic.

My roommate and I park in the garage...but his Harley has a spot in there also...so he's not totally left out in the cold.

Anyway, through the years I have said that I wished he would be more romantic.  I believe that the more you give of something, the return is multiplied...so...I've started a list of ways that I can be romantic with my husband.

1. While in public, declare "I love you, _________!"

2. When your partner least expects it, give him a great big kiss, even if it's in public!

3. Send a text message or email that says "I love you!"

4. Follow him into the bathroom at a party and make out with him.

5. Invite him to take a bath complete with bubbles, champagne (beer...if he’s like my husband), candles, and music.

6. Surprise him at work and take him out to lunch, maybe a picnic in the park.

7. Cook a special love meal of your partner's favorite foods. Play his favorite music and turn the lights low for a romantic dinner.

8. Give him a pedicure and foot rub.

9. Offer a back massage with lotion.

10. Mail a card and inside write down the top 10 things you love about him.

11. Give him a picture of you for his wallet that says "I love you."

12. King for a Day. Declare that you will dedicate a particular day just to do whatever he wants. Maybe start with breakfast in bed.

13. Make little "I love you" notes and post them in surprising places: the bathroom, in his shoe, the car, under his pillow.

14. Take an interest in your partner's interests. If he likes basketball, watch a game on T.V. with him.

15. Dedicate a song to him on the radio and send him an email telling him when to listen.

16. Find a hotel that has a jacuzzi and book it for a one night getaway somewhere close but fun.

17. Place an ad in the classifieds declaring your love. Then take the newspaper, wrap it in a bow, and put a little note on it saying what page to look on.

18. Make a donation to charity in the name of your love for your partner.

19. Create a small blog dedicated to him. Write a short love message each day for a month...or forever.

20. Complete that chore or favor that he has wanted you to do for a long time.

No matter how small or large the effort, the end result is the same! 

Hope you have a day filled with love!!

Will you find me a husband/boyfriend? I'm serious. I want a man to love and to do all these things for, I love giving (and receiving). I have asked everyone I know if they knew any nice single guys in the age range of 40 - 55 that they could introduce me to. So far, they all say they don't know anyone. I refuse to do the online dating thing again. When I do meet guys they usually like me so I don't think its that I am not a good catch...but obviously there is something wrong because here I am alone.

I'm sorry! I turned your romantic post into my gripe session about being single. I guess the grass is always greener, but I want a lawn like yours! One with a man on it!

Your husband is lucky to have such a thoughtful, sensual wife!

I must say that I have done all but 15, 17 and 18. My husband is one spoiled man but he deserves it and because he treats me like a queen. It took me three tries to find him but he was worth the wait. We will be married for 7 years on his birthday, March 29.

P.S. I love him with all my heart and oh, I have not done 19 (yet). Very good suggestion!
