Squirrels and boredom

This morning I watched two squirrels run laps around and around the trunk of a large oak tree.

Sometimes they’d be making 15 laps a second. Then they’d stop and look at each other as if asking, “what are we doing?” Then they’d start up again.

One of the squirrels broke the “rules”. Suddenly it ran down a limb, jumping some 15 feet to another tree. It  continued running, leaping in the air and flying to several more trees.

The second squirrel stopped and stared quizzically at the first squirrel. The second squirrel seemed to wonder why the first squirrel wasn’t still running in the same circles? Why did it do something new?

Sometimes that happens in romance.

One person keeps doing the same romantic thing over and over.

Maybe it’s candlelight dinner at the same restaurant every Friday night. Or he/she keeps repeating, “that’s how I feel about you, sweetheart” every time you hear the same song.

Even if you like candlelight dinners, after awhile it gets . . . boring. The specialness fades.

Maybe it’s time to be like the first squirrel. Try something unpredictable, different and new. Romance your sweetheart in a different way.

Just don’t leave your sweetheart staring quizzically at you. Invite him/her to join you in the new adventure.


Had a great time Saturday night at the Romance Alive Experience. The sponsors created a wonderful setting complete with roses and scrumptious desserts. We had a wonderful time.

If you live in the north Metro area of Atlanta, you have another chance to attend a live Romance Alive Experience this coming Saturday night’s at the Living Hope Church on Stilesboro Rd. in Kennesaw, Georgia. Even if you don’t get a chance to sign up, come join us at 7:00p.

As always, I encourage your comments. Robert
