Can you romance your sweetheart without words?
This past weekend my sweetheart and I watched the DreamWorks’ movie, “A Thousand Words” starring Eddie Murphy.
In the movie, Murphy’s character Jack is a fast-talking manipulator. He uses words to manipulate people he represents as a literary agent, people he meets and his family.
One day Jack discovers for every word he speaks, a “magical” tree loses a leaf. When the leaves are gone, so is he. With only 1,000 leaves left on the tree, Jack only has 1,000 words let in his life.
As Jack tries to reconcile his life, he is challenged to win back his wife Caroline without speaking a word.
How do you romance your sweetheart without using words?
This can be a challenge for many of us.
In the last couple articles I’ve written about words as a preferred way to be romanced for some. But words are only one of the four main ways of romancing your sweetheart.
First, discover your sweetheart’s preferred way of being romanced.
Second, discover how to romance your sweetheart in his/her preferred way of being romanced.
And your sweetheart may prefer to be romanced with words. If that’s their preference, use words to romance him/her.
Third, be sincere, not manipulative.
Jack learned to romance his sweetheart Caroline without fast-talking, without manipulative double-talk and without words.
He learned to romance her by his sincere actions.
Whether your sweetheart prefers to be romanced with words, romance her/him with sincerity, without manipulation and in the way your sweetheart prefers to be romanced.
