3 Romantic Tips

As a married couple, your romantic relationship needs to be healthy, and believe it or not, God desires for both of you to be fulfilled in one another. Here are three tips:

1) Talk about the things you want from one another. Discuss your sexual desires, romantic desires, etc. Your spouse won't know if you don't tell them. Don't expect them to be mindreaders.

2) Make a game out of one upping each other in the area of romance. See who can get up earlier to make breakfast in bed, or who can get home from work first and make the other a bubble or milk bath. Things like that make coming home fun and gets the engines reved up.

3) Take walks together. Talk to one another about something other than bills and kids while you walk. Maybe even hold hands. Think about the last time you saw an older couple holding hands in public. It probably gave you a warm, fuzzy feeling. It's not sexual, but it is romantic and sweet. you need it all in a marriage.

Excellent! If I might add one: fondle each other from time to time. LOL! I've been married for years and it still works at my house.

I think I missed the prize! Thats ok. I just bought a few $$$ from VS a week ago.

It is so true that the non-sexual intimacy so influences the sexual intimacy!

Taking notes. I need them. I'm so out of touch. Sex? What's that? ROMANCE? Get serious! I missed being first because this dumb computer is crashing on me.

I can add another one here that falls right in line with these. Even if you have no chance of having sex for hours--say you're both on your way out the door to places you can't miss--kiss each other as passionately as possile--let the other person know you do desire them--let that kiss carry you each through the day.

Ok, I agree with Joyce too. But, the communication is the best of the tips. All too often we expect our partner, wife, ex-wife in my case, girl friend, to know what we want, without saying anything then we get upset when they don't respond as we expect. TALK! It's important. Breakfast is a great idea, if both eat breakfast and not enough people do.

Wonderful suggestions of nice things to do for each other! In my case, it's my husband being there to pick me up when I collapse on the floor, or to drive me so I can go to choir practice for a while, then he helps me to the car when I can't do anymore. To me, that makes him very romantic and special, and when I'm strong and healthy, I do special things for him!

Thanks for emailing me after all the stuff is almost gone. LOL! Proud of you, girlie. You deserve this time in the spotlight. Oh, was i supposed to leave a tip? None of my marriages worked so... a tip... hmmm... DON'T NAG

If you have a fireplace, read the Bible to one another in front of the fireplace.

I wish I knew how you write all these books, the secret to doign it right.

Marriage is way easier than a writing career.

Try new things. When was the last time you "did it" on the washer or in the winter on the dryer?

Shut up, Lacresha!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is being understanding of one another no matter what. My husband has some health challenges so there are times when relations are out of the question. I know that it frustrates him for me but to me it is more important that he is alive and o.k.


Blessings,

I leave love notes all over the house for my wife. We started 4 years ago after attending a couple's seminar for seniors. It's been beautiful and our sex life is still going strong after 30+ years.

Talk. Refuse to argue. It drains romantic energy.

DMJC said...

Whisper in each other's ears about when and where you want to be intimate that day/night; whisper to each other when the kids are close by or if out in public.
That can really stir up the anticipation and get the heart pumping a bit faster.
Also, wink at your mate from across the room and flirt with them like it's your first time meeting them when you're out in public (grocery store is good for this).
