Romance and Dessert

What is your favorite dessert?

  • S’mores Cake in a Jar?
  • Banana Split?
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies?
  • Key Lime Pie?

My grandma used to make wonderful lemon meringue pies. My mom baked a tunnel of fudge cake whenever I came home from college.

Don’t know about you but my mouth is watering. I love desserts. My sweet tooth’s been known to embarrass me with its demands. If I didn’t have some self-control, I might make William “The Refrigerator” Perry look like Twiggy.

We all know, desserts alone aren’t healthy. A whipped cream life comes at a big price.

A healthy diet underpins a healthy life. Our body works best when we consume a balance of fruits, vegetables, proteins and grains. Once the healthy foundation is in place, dessert can be added as the icing on the cake, the paint and trim on our house, the sparkle in the diamond.

People say to me, “Robert, you can’t build a relationship on just romance.” I agree. Romance by itself will not a healthy relationship create.

Romance makes a relationship sparkle best when the relationship has a firm foundation.

Dr. Rich Nicastro writes about never losing sight of the fundamentals of a relationship, including:

  • Communication,
  • Commitment,
  • Compassion.

Marriage Counselor, Allison Mupas talks about fundamentals in successful long term relationships, which include:

  • Willingness to compromise,
  • Expressing love and appreciation for each other,
  • Actively keeping connection.

My view – romance makes your relationship great when it’s built on a healthy foundation of:

  • Respect for yourself,
  • Honor for your sweetheart, and
  • Love for each other.

I hope you will keep the foundation of your relationship strong and healthy. Then you can savor the sweet foods and beverages of romance, the sweet desserts of your relationship.

Anyone ready for Crème Brule, German chocolate cake or Haagen-Dazs Belgium Chocolate Chocolate? Yum! Robert
