Does romance need a vacation? Maybe? Sometimes?
I’ve been on vacation the last few days. Yesterday afternoon while driving from New Hampshire to Boston that question came to mind.
We take vacations to take a break, to rejuvenate, to rest. Sometimes there might be a need to take a break from romance.
While this might seem like a strange idea from someone who promotes and is dedicated to encouraging people to bring more romance into their relationships, consider this.
- Sometimes you can get frustrated at trying to romance your sweetheart and those attempts don’t seem to “work”.
- Maybe your romantic gestures become routine and stale.
- It could be that you’ve been working so hard at romancing your sweetheart you need a break to have time to consider other ideas.
If your Romantic Interludes could use a break, take one.
It isn’t a commentary on your relationship or desire to bring romance into your relationship. It could be a useful break, a time of refreshing, a time to consider new ideas.
Approach this romantic vacation like you would a vacation from work. Slow down. Take a deep breath. Open yourself to new experiences. And take time to enjoy some new ideas. If you approach it like you would a vacation, knowing this is a planned break for rejuvenation of your romance, you might return with a refreshed approach to romancing your sweetheart.
Time to board my 6 a.m. flight to Minneapolis.
Robert, a hopeless romantic
