From time to time I’m asked, “Robert, do you try every romantic idea you suggest?”
No I don’t. And here’s why I don’t.
First, Time. Our schedules, like yours, are full. By the time I created the weekly romantic idea, planned it, and then carried it out, I’d miss the deadline for creating the next romantic idea.
Second, Expectations. A constant stream of great romantic gestures would elevate my sweetheart’s expectations for the next. A spectacular sunset every evening becomes passé. An unexpected sunset spectacular of swirled flaming reds, bright golds and deep blues experienced every couple weeks leaves fewer but more intense memories.
The third and more profound reason is my attitude, my “romantic attitude”.
A true romantic attitude will also keep you from trying every romantic idea I suggest.
A romantic attitude actively looks for opportunities to romance your sweetheart. It is an awareness that you can think of many ideas for romancing your sweetheart. These ideas for creating special moments between the two of you can be sparked daily.
But that isn’t enough.
A romantic attitude includes a filter of how your sweetheart prefers to be romanced. It sifts through the romantic ideas and focuses on those which are your sweetheart’s romantic preference.
My romantic attitude develops many romantic ideas each week. Some of these end up as a on this blog.
The knowledge of my sweetheart’s preference strains out those she would not find very romantic. While she might smile and say thank you to all of them, they wouldn’t create those special moments and memories.
You can develop your romantic attitude.
Start by opening your mind to catch ideas to romance your sweetheart. Select and focus on those ideas your sweetheart would prefer. Put these romantic ideas into action.
You’ll both enjoy these special moments and the memories they create. Robert
