Here are some ways you can add a little romance to your relationship –

  • Buy your partner flowers “just because”
  • Add a heart, word or a special image to your partner’s coffee, breakfast, dinner or treat
  • Slip a love note into your lover’s bag, purse or coat pocket
  • Write your mate a letter sharing your feelings of love and appreciation.  If you struggle with expressing your feelings, find a poem, quote or song lyrics that sum up how you feel.  You can deliver the letter in person or send it in the mail.
  • Cook for your partner
  • Plan a special date or romantic getaway
  • Write “I love you” on the bathroom mirror or with chalk on the sidewalk
  • Leave a glass of wine waiting for your partner when she walks through the door.  Place a note next to it asking her to join you outside to watch the sunset.
  • Surprise your partner with a gift
  • Begin and end your day with a compliment or expression of gratitude
  • Read to each other before bed (you can always spice this one up by reading erotica to each other)

Romance is not “one size fits all.” If you aren’t sure what your partner finds romantic, you can always ask. Romance is about being thoughtful, making your partner feel loved or cherished and doing something special for the special person in your life.  Romance is best when done without ulterior motives, however, don’t be surprised if your romantic gestures bring extra loving attention your way!
