Some people seem to know how to combine the right words into sentences to generate romantic thoughts in the minds of their readers or listeners.
This gift is wonderful – especially if your sweetheart prefers to be romanced with words.
Some of us struggle with coming up with something beyond, “I love you” or “Your eyes set my heart in orbit”.
Maybe you wish your gift was the ability to combine words and music like Bruno Mars, to set thoughts and feelings to rhyme like Elizabeth Barrett Browning, or to create Samuel Clemens-ish witty retorts.
Then reality hits.
While your sweetheart may want you to romance with words, combining words into romantic thoughts isn’t your forte.
Here are three things you can do to successfully romance your sweetheart with words.
1. Choose the type of words you want to use to deliver your romantic message.
- Explicit words, direct statements of fact.
- Picture words, describing events or the effect your sweetheart has on you.
- Anticipatory words, suggestions which allow your sweetheart to complete the thought.
2. Then select the medium for conveying the message.
3. Now the fait accompli, borrow words from someone who’s already created the message you want to convey.
- Find a song telling her/him they looks wonderful tonight.
- Google a poem which creatively tells your sweetheart you want to be his/hers.
- Write a note card with words from a movie like, “”It seems right now that all I’ve ever done in my life is making my way here to you.”(The Bridges of Madison County)
You don’t have to fret over creating the most romantic message ever sent. Use the skills of those more skilled in word-picture creation to create your romantic message, romancing your sweetheart as he/she wants to be romanced. How does this work for you? Robert
