My neighbors held a garage sale couple weeks ago. My sweetheart and I decided to visit and see what bargains we couldn’t live without.
After pondering over the purchase of an air hockey table, a Christmas lawn ornament and a Nixon campaign coin along with other treasurers, Fred asked me to help bring a couple things up from the basement.
Seven trips later, I returned to see what my sweetheart purchasing two items, neither of which seemed much to me. She, however, thought they might be saleable on eBay.
We’d barely returned home when she set about searching for the answer to one question: “How much had people paid for similar items on eBay?”
What transpired I’ve witnessed many times. These items sold in a few days and her $10 investment earned for over $100.
If you ask her how she knows they might sell, she’ll say 1) she just has a feeling they were valuable, and 2) she got fortunate.
- She’s been doing this over 20 years;
- She puts time into researching what people are buying;
- She’s put her experience to work and learned to spot saleable items.
She’s gone from 10 concurrent listings to hundreds, from 200% margins to frequent 1000% margins.
There are similarities between her eBay skills and learning to be romantic.
To become good at creating Romantic Interludes with your sweetheart, it takes:
- Time and perseverance;
- Intentional learning;
- Trying and failing, trying and failing, trying and succeeding.
If you’ll keep consistently persistent learning how to romance your sweetheart, you’ll improve your romancing skills. You’ll discover new ways to be romantic. And you’ll increase the percent of romantic gesture towards your sweetheart.
Keep at it. Develop your skills. And you’ll cultivate a sense of what your sweetheart finds romantic. Here’s to being a romantic. Robert
