If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you
Do you identify with the sentiment captured in these lyrics?
Would you enjoy spending time with your sweetheart, just the two of you?
You may not be familiar with the lyrics of Jim Croce’s “Time In A Bottle,” yet you feel like he understood how you feel about your sweetheart.
For you, spending time together might be the most romantic thing that could happen between you and your sweetheart.
Time constitutes one of the four major ways people prefer to be romanced.
Maybe your sweetheart prefers to be romanced with your time above words, touching or even little gifts? If it’s true, here’s something vital to learn.
For your sweetheart, it’s less important what you do together than being together. You don’t have to spend big bucks, make extravagant plans, design an exotic evening or even hire a limo.
It’s all about the simply spending time together.
It could be sharing a cup of coffee on a Saturday morning.
It could be baking cookies together, or flying kites in the park.
Even a Chinese-takeout-dinner at home touches the heart.
Two key things to remember:
- It’s just time just for the two of you, and
- It’s deliberately given
Bypass the dinner at Chez Chien’s. Forgo the ruby tennis bracelet. Give your credit card a rest.
You can be the romantic your sweetheart desires by giving your sweetheart your time: intentionally, cheerfully, uninterruptedly and quietly.
If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you (Writers: Jim Croce, Robin Spielberg, 1970)
