A vibrant loving relationship is indeed challenging mentally and physically but the feedback from those who put in the hard work and pay the price is encouraging, because they all confirmed the great success that follows the efforts. In their words, the rewards are well worth it! So don’t ‘cop’ out, put in the work necessary.
In the same spirit of being honest, there is no doubt that we all struggle with romance but personally I am finding that the key is in initiating, taking small steps, being consistent and never becoming complacent or insensitive. Some of the insights (tips) I hold dear till date came from David & Anne Frahm’s book, titled “How To Make Love With Your Clothes On” below:
- The firm foundations of a romantic relationship are built upon the delights of surprise
- Little things mean the world to women”
- Catching a woman off guard ‘now and then adds drama to a marriage, that most women crave.
Listed below are 10 ways to make love with your clothes on and I want to dare you to try them out, the results will surprise you.
- Leave a ‘provocative’ message for your spouse on the answering machine
- Open the car door for her, both getting in and getting out
- Call her during the day just to tell her you love her and that you’ve been thinking about her
- At an unsuspecting moment, sweep her into your arms and tell her that she’s your best friend
- Ask her opinion on an important decision you’ve got to make
- Pray with her over her concerns
- Compliment her on her appearance
- Tape a note to the bathroom scale that says “Just Right”
- Surprise her with flowers because it’s true that “Flowers like women, bring beauty into the world and they belong together”
- Make time to talk and listen
I will love to hear from you the ones that worked for you as well as others you are trying out or have tried or heard of. In addition, do you need help in your relationship(s), marriage or life? Remember, you are not alone, help is available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
