Have you noticed?
Christmas passed. The gifts were purchased, opened and evaluated. There was a sigh of relief when the verdict came in that your sweetheart liked his/her gift.
You decide to check out the after Christmas sales and what do you find? Valentine’s candies and cards and stuffed animals and . . .!
Say it isn’t so!
Before your Christmas credit card statement arrives, you’re faced with the pressure of finding the perfect Valentine’s present for your sweetheart.
Then again, maybe not.
Statistically there’s only a 25% chance your sweetheart prefers to be romanced with gifts. It’s more likely you’ll become a Valentine’s romantic without purchasing a single chocolate or rose.
How does your sweetheart prefer to be romanced?
If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you’ll know I believe the best way to romance your sweetheart is utilizing your sweetheart’s romantic preference.
Let’s say your sweetheart, like mine, prefers to be romanced through the gift of focused time. A bottle of cologne or perfume and a dozen roses won’t be appreciated as much as a quiet evening together.
- An hour or two of focused, non-interrupted time speaks to her/his heart.
- A simple dinner in the relaxed atmosphere of your home is cherished.
- Sitting by the fireplace and sharing memories or making plans together is romantic.
And for you, the great thing about this is:
- It doesn’t require hours of planning,
- It doesn’t involve a credit card bill, and
- It’s what your sweetheart really wants.
When you make your Valentine’s plans, consider your sweetheart’s preference for being romanced. Let Valentine’s be enjoyable for both of you. I like that idea. Robert
