Remember the Romance this Weekend!
Posted by Love Life on May 29th, 2010 in Dates
There is no doubt that this weekend is all about honoring the brave men and women who have defended our country through the armed services. We salute you and honor you and most importantly pray for you constantly!
I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage couples to remember the romance during this long weekend break. Create your own sparks and watch them fly!
The very first thing couples need to remember is that you need quality time together. Start with setting aside time for each other this weekend that’s just about the two of you. If you have children and your child is an infant and you are not comfortable with leaving the child with a sitter or even family members; make plans for a romantic evening at home. In other words have your date night out, in!
Once the baby is down for the night, light some candles, turn the music down low and share a nice dinner. You can either order in or prepare a nice meal together. Pick up your favorite movie early in the day or on your way home, or find a good movie on cable and watch a movie or just talk after dinner. Don’t make the conversation be about work, bills, household chores or the children. Leave the dishes, and focus on the two of you alone. Turn off all of the electronic devices including the home phone. You don’t want to have any distractions. Don’t even answer the door! Whoever it is should have called first anyway, (before you turned off the phone!)
If you have older children arrange for them to spend the night with family members or perhaps spending the night with friends that you trust. Saturday or Sunday night will do. Then you can plan a romantic night out, or if you’re on a tight budget, keep it simple and plan for a night in! Again, candles, dinner and perhaps a sexy romantic game like twister! Steal a kiss while the game is in play! One of my clients confessed that, “Every once in a while my wife will surprise me with the best possible gift: an at-home sex date. She’ll whisper, ‘The kids are staying at the baby-sitter’s overnight,’ and I’ll know exactly what our plans are that evening.”
The most important thing to re-igniting romance in your relationship is to remember you love this person and you still want to do things to impress them. Their smile is one of the things that you’ll want to work for. Pick up a single rose or carnation or a box of their favorite candies or even a blank card, sign it “I love you, Me.” Be thoughtful, creative and most of all, remember to be in love with each other the same way and with even more passion than when you were dating!
So have a toast to your love this weekend and always remember to put your best foot forward to keep the romance alive and well!
Take time out, and make it the best weekend ever!
