Every once in a while some extra care is needed to keep that romantic spark alive. Little gestures that require very little effort and won’t break the bank. I have found that it is not about the epic moments that create a lasting relationship; but instead the things we do for our partner everyday that keeps that fire going. If you follow the instructions I have listed below, I am sure that you will improve your relationship in just seven days.
Sunday – Bring Your Partner Coffee In Bed
How wonderful is it to wake up in the morning with a hot cup of coffee ready and waiting… My husband does this for me sometimes and it shows me that he is thinking about me and the long day ahead. He already knows how I like my coffee prepared, showing that he pays attention. I would suggest that before trying this step you already know how much cream and sugar she likes. If not, she will only find herself having to get up to fix it her way. The best part for me in Steve bringing my coffee is the smile that appears on his face. Like a man who knows he is making a sweet gesture. Be proud of yourself for thinking of your partner’s needs.
Monday – Leaving A Romantic Note
Most mornings I pack Steve’s lunch, along with a note handwritten on a napkin. Some of the notes are cute with a joke. Some of the notes are romantic and yes some are a little naughty too. I make sure to instruct him to read these notes in private to ensure it’s not an embarrassing situation. On occasion when he is going out of town for work, I will hide a note in his suitcase. This just gives him a little reminder of how much I will miss him.
Tuesday- Take Your Partner Out To the First Place You Met Or Somewhere That has Special Significance.
In my case this would be of all places the waffle house. Going out to a place where fond memories were made gives you both a chance to think back to that day where your life inevitably changed. Talk about it while you are there. How did you feel the first time you met. If you really want to kick things up a notch men, open the car door for your spouse. Wait to see the reaction on her face.
Wednesday- Take Over One of Your Partners Tasks
Nothing says sexy like a man that will complete the wash and fold it too. Now this one may be harder than you think. It’s important that you do it right. Doing the wash does not mean throwing everything together in one big load and then depositing it unfolded in a laundry basket. This would be a sure way for your kind gesture to instead have the opposite reaction. Most women are particularly fussy about the way their clothes are handled. This is just an example of a task you could take. Find what works for you. Maybe just running the vacuum cleaner would achieve the same result. Women here’s your task… Nothing says to a man that you are in love like a unsolicited massage. Most partners know already where this will lead…
Thursday – Flowers Or Candy Sent To Work For No Reason
I’ll be the first to admit I get secretly jealous seeing bouquets of flowers delivered to a co-worker. Once Steve sent me roses to work for no other reason other than I was having a bad day. Sending flowers to a man is not the best idea, but candy is always a great alternative.
Friday – Tell your Love How much You Appreciate Them.
Verbalizing how much you appreciate your spouse is often forgotten in our busy lives. Sit down and talk from your heart about all the things your partner does on an everyday basis that makes life easier. Those long hours at work, the dinner cooked or even just the balancing of the checkbook.
Saturday – Romance
Be spontaneous and think outside the norm! Romance is not just about sex, its a long drive in the country, a picnic lunch or just running a hot bath for the one you love. There are hundreds of ways to be romantic. Go ahead and show that thoughtful side by thinking outside of the box. Be creative and come up with something memorable. Whatever you do to create a romantic day it’s vitally important that you turn off your smartphone. Nothing will ruin that passion quicker than the constant ringing and text messages coming through a smartphone. I’ll be addressing this in a later post.
