Ten years and still working to romance her, he came up with a great idea.
Why not call her up and invite her out – like it was 12 years earlier.
He called her from a number she didn’t recognize and acted like a young kid again – stumbling through an awkward conversation and finally asking her out to dinner.
” What a way to keep romance alive.
Act like it’s a first date all over again.”
He got ready at a friend’s house. She spent an hour deciding on her outfit, combing her hair and primping.
The doorbell rang. It was him.
She took a quick glance in the mirror to make sure her dress fell just right, makeup ready. She opened the door.
And there he was: ragged old jeans and a torn t-shirt.
Kinda took the romance out of the evening.
I’ve been pondering:
How do you dress for romance?
Does how you dress effect how romantic you are?
I think it does.
Mama said, you dress for the job you want, not the job you have. You’ll feel you belong in that job and others will think you belong there too.
The same is true when you dress romantically. How you dress sends a message to your brain and conveys a message to your sweetheart.
What does it mean to dress romantically?
I think it comes down to this:
1) Dress in a style appropriate for the occasion.
2) Dress attractively.
Following the Platinum Rule of Romance, you’re dressing for your sweetheart. It lets your sweetheart know they are so important to you that you care about how you look.
It isn’t always dress up, dress shoes and dresses. It isn’t always flirty.
It’s comfortable, allowing your sweetheart to relax and enjoy the romantic moment you’re creating.
And it let’s your sweetheart be proud to be with you and be seen with you.
So create the moment – from the inside all the way out?
Would love to hear your thoughts on Dressing Romantically. Robert
