Such sadness. Valentine’s over. Guess romance is done for another year.
Do you feel that way? Does your relationship go on a unromantic hunger strike the next 364 days? Is romance flatlining until it’s resurrected by this annual Hallmark holiday?
You can change that.
Kirk and Kim Duncan from 3 Key Elements and hosts of “Royalty and Romance” shared some insights into keeping Romance Alive beyond February 14.
First, speak to your sweetheart using words with deeper meanings, especially if your sweetheart prefers to be romanced with WORDS.
Flirtatious words, double-entendres or short phrases convey the uniqueness of our relationship with your sweetheart. These words can connect you at levels deeper than the regular “I love you’s”. If you’ll whisper these words, things amp up, like sharing a secret meant for only your sweetheart’s ears.
Second, touch your sweetheart and do it frequently, especially if your sweetheart prefers to be romanced with TOUCH.
Neck touches, ear kisses and shoulder rubs are romantic. They’re intimate, bringing you close physically and emotionally. The gentle brush of your skin against your sweetheart’s skin brings warm shivers. These touches are special, unique, and reserved only for the two of you.
Third, sway together. Let WORDS, TOUCH and TIME TOGETHER combine to revive romance.
Find a song you both enjoy. Sit close and gently rock/sway to the rhythm of the music – for the entire song. Let the music take you away, connecting you emotionally. Swaying together creates your world-for-two, excluding all others.
Keeping Romance Alive between February 15 and February 13 isn’t spontaneous generation, happening inexplicably and without design. It’s something deliberate, the result of your decision to keep Romance Alive. Use these suggestions to help your relationship.
Here’s to a happy February 15th and 16th and 17th and . . . and keeping Romance Alive 24/7/365. Robert
