Ever been on a flight leaving about 6 O’clock in the evening?
The challenge is eating around that schedule. To make the gate on time you can either eat mid-afternoon or wait until you arrive at your destination – hungry.
Last week I was on that flight out of ATL (Atlanta International Airport). There had been little time to eat before takeoff and I was hungry.
Can you guess the menu? A bag of five, tiny pretzels and a three swallows of cranberry juice.
Not very satisfying!
It was food. Maybe it was better than nothing. Yet after “eating”, I was still hungry.
I see this happen with romance.
Maybe our sweetheart is hungry for romance in the relationship.
Maybe you crave more romance in your relationship.
Then it happens. You create for your sweetheart or your sweetheart creates for you a small romantic event.
You both relish the unique moment together.
You celebrate your relationship.
You cherish the sense of the uniqueness of your relationship.
There’s intimacy in the creation of a shared memory.
Suddenly it’s over . . . and you crave more. The tiny romantic snack left you hungry for more.
If you or your sweetheart are trying to subsist on an infrequent snack of romance, why not change that?
Don’t just plan an occasional five-course romantic event. Small, frequent romantic “snacks” are more satisfying than the rare, full blown, over-the-top banquet of romance.
Create “small” romantic “snacks” for your sweetheart once or twice a week.
- Give your sweetheart an unexpected warm, long embrace, complete with a lingering kiss;
- Leave your sweetheart a handwritten, romantic note;
- Send him/her flowers for no specific reason.
These frequent, “snacks” of romance will fuel the fires of your unique relationship, keeping alive romance and building memories the two of you will share.
