A year ago they’d purchased a new house, at least it was new to them. It was charming and just their size, though it had a bit of an unusual layout.
What to do with this one room?
It wasn’t a bedroom, no closet. Too small for a dining room or office. And it was located down a hall, kinda by itself.
Jake had a plan for this room. It involved a medium size couch, a TV, small sound system and adjustable lighting.
His sweetheart definitely approved.
It was the perfect size for:
- Uninterrupted talking,
- Listening to one of their favorite artists, like Whitney or John Michael Montgomery.
- Snuggling up to watch “From Here To Eternity”.
Does that sound boring to you, just sitting there and not accomplishing anything?
Jake’s sweetheart’s preferred way to be romanced was with the gift of time together. She enjoyed sharing her day with him, which might lead to an intimate discussion of deeply personal feelings, which might lead to snuggling up close.
It didn’t matter if they achieved anything. Didn’t matter whether the conversation got deep or not. She just liked having time dedicated to the two of them being together.
If your sweetheart’s preferred way to be romanced is with the gift of time together, look for Romantic Interludes which may not have a detailed itinerary, Interludes with lots of non-agenda time.
“Activities” might include:
- A quiet, lingering dinner at home,
- A stroll along a stream or in a park,
- A relaxed drive on a backroad to a small café.
You can romance your time-together-loving-sweetheart by slowing down, turning off interruptions and enjoying time for just the two of you. You will create shared memories prized by both of you. And you’ll romance your sweetheart how your sweetheart appreciates being romanced.
