Unexpected and Anticipated Romance

What have you planed for your next Romantic Interlude?

You’ve invested time and energy to understand how your sweetheart prefers to be romanced. You’ve planned the Romantic Interlude, which you believe your sweetheart will enjoy and fondly remember. Now you’re ready to realize it, feeling like the kid with a secret bursting out across his/her face.

Would you like to learn how to make it even more romantic? Here are two strategies to increase the impact of your Romantic Interlude.

Do something very unexpected, possibly frivolous.

Too often relationships devolve into cow paths. The Interludes are familiar and surroundings comfortable. Little thought is given to creating them. It’s the same routine over and over and over again. Autopilot monotony. Devoid of freshness, newness and charm. Dulls-ville.

But going somewhere or doing something unexpected startles the Romantic Interlude out of it stupor. Your sweetheart perks up. What’s going on? This isn’t the usual Interlude – pay attention.

A small change breathes life into romance. A change as small as trying a different restaurant, breakfast instead of dinner, or an evening stroll.

Build anticipation.

This is a wonderfully easy way to enhance a Romantic Interlude. Drop hints about what you’ve planned without giving sufficient information for your sweetheart to figure it out.

You can hint at your plans with:

  • Little comments,
  • Suggested attire,
  • A wry smile,
  • Unfinished statements.

Entice your sweetheart’s imagination to try to complete the thought: “we are going to….” One’s brain will simply not drop an unsolvable problem. It takes control of his/her thoughts.

By creating an unexpected and possibly frivolous Romantic Interlude OR by building anticipation of the upcoming Interlude, you can enhance the impact of the Interlude on your sweetheart. Either strategy will strengthen the memory you’ll create together.

And if you can combine these two strategies….
