Yesterday was the start of the love month, February, when everybody look forward to Valentine's Day. All over the world, whether you have a special someone, looking for that special someone or have been with that special someone but seemed not, Valentines Days is one of the most celebrated occasion. Restaurants by now have been preparing degustation packages for two, have posted gimmicks with romantic-themed activities and have finalized how they're to sell products all for LOVE.
L-O-V-E . . .I would like to write about this more, but then I'm sure we all have different thoughts on how we view this according to our situations. So I will focus more on how we can spark the moment more. Why don't we redefine how we see relationships and revitalize the love we have, even though you don't see it that way. Let's put off any arguments, differences and disgust and tend to what we could do to help each other nurture the love ( for each other of course).
R-O-M-A-N-C-E . . .love evokes romance, bonding and a special feeling of being irresistibly desired.
Whether you are a man or a woman, you have a need to be loved and as Ralph Waldo Emerson puts it, "be a delicious torment."
So with all these clamoring about that very special day, let me give you tips but without selling out tons of money, unless you are to obsess at him or her that you're willing to spend a lot. These are creative ways I have collected which will sure melt your love one's heart. But for me, what counts dearest is how you have put your heart into it. Sometimes one would give too much but it doesn't seem to be that special.
Tip # 1
Here is a story from one guy...
"Last year for Valentine's Day I came across a copy of the children's book How Much Do I Love You. I thought the story was very cute about a big hare and its little hare and how they try to show one another their love. To make the story more personalized, I printed out our "pet" names for one another and glued them over the names of the characters in the book (so now the story was about us!). She was so amazed to open up the book and read the story that she took it to her mother to show what I had done (the book still sits by our two stuffed bunny rabbits in our guest bedroom)."
Tip # 2
Light it up. Nothing sets the mood for romance more than the enticing aroma and flickering glow of a burning candle, so use them to your full advantage. On February 1, light a candle at dinner. The following evening, add another candle and light them both. Continue to add a candle each evening until Valentine's Day. As you add candles, arrange them into the shape of a heart. On February 14, you and your valentine will enjoy a romantic dinner amid the glow of your heart-shaped creation. (This may be a bit overboard and tiresome, but will work magic)
Tip # 3
Think outside the box. Candy and flowers are often a romantic staple for Valentine's Day, but even the darkest of chocolates can get boring after 10 years of receiving the same thing over and over again. Think outside that candy box and get creative. Ask yourself what her hobbies are and what are some of the things that truly make her happy. Take those answers and go from there. Don't take something off the list just because it is simple. Consider the small things and the large ones alike.
Tip # 4
What keeps your partner happier. When it comes to romance, you know your partner the best. Think about the things you have done in the past that have made her happy and do variations those things. If you know she enjoyed getting art supplies for her studio, get her a basket filled with flowers and art supplies and a homemade card.
If you can't take her away for the weekend, give her a day at the spa. You can purchase a gift certificate for her to have a massage before you take her out to a romantic dinner. ou can even go into the spa with her and get a massage together.
Whatever you do, keep her and her happiness in mind and you will create a romantic Valentine's Day for two
