For years people observed others in dating situations with great fascination.
Maybe you’ve seen:
- The Bachelorette,
- The Dating Game,
- Love Connection,
- The Bachelor.
Millions of people watch or have watched these and similar TV shows even though we know what usually happens after Hollywood’s contrived setting disappears and these people try to develop real relationships.
Typically, no one wins.
I read an interview with one of these TV-created couples whose relationship continues. Lauren and Ben’s romance not only remains alive; they’re proactively working to keep it growing.
What is different about this couple compared to the majority of their compatriots?
Lauren, who admits she’s not a “morning person”, will sometimes get up early and fixes Ben’s coffee and breakfast. For his part, Ben lets her know verbally how much she means to him.
After the spotlight, traveling and glamour of the TV show has dimmed, this couple continues to do little romantic things for each other. They’ve learned what romantic gestures speak to the other. And as the pressure of real life starts to wear on their relationship, these little things continue to add up in a big way to protect their relationship.
That’s great news for us.
It isn’t big productions or exotic rendezvous that keep Romance Alive. The key is repeated small, romantic actions which:
- Are easy to perform,
- Are repeatable, and
- Add up over time
