Tired of dead-end date nights? Is you sweetheart’s idea of an exciting Friday night date a pizza and watching satellite television? I’m not suggesting spending time at home alone together can’t be romantic. But, come on; let’s be honest. I doubt if having remnants of tomato sauce on the corners of one’s mouth or the sound of advertisements for deodorant in the background will lead to anything but a headache and indigestion.
If you’ve been married for awhile, it’s understandable that quite a few Friday nights might be spent going to the supermarket. But, let’s start concentrating on doing something more creative to unleash the “romantic” side of your relationship. If you don’t start putting some creative romantic ideas into the relationship, it could soon end up in the recycling bin.
From time to time, all of us need a few suggestions on how to “warm up” our love life. With the pressures of everyday life upon us, we need to reserve some special time with our sweetheart to promote good mental, physical and emotional well-being.
Do you want to surprise your sweetheart? Do you want to bring back those great Friday night dates you once had when you first met? Try writing a note designating the coming Friday as your “date” night. Leave it in their car before they go to work in the morning. In the note you tell them you have “reserved” this night to have dinner out in a nice restaurant (no take out). Cancellations are not aloud; no movies, no television. Drive somewhere safe and quiet (of course, this could be hard depending where you live) but make an attempt anyway. Just park the car and start holding hands. Try cuddling and start talking softly to each about intimate things. Don’t talk about work, the kids (if you have them) and all the other typical problems you share each and every day. Forget everything for the moment and go back to the time when you had your first date together, without the anxiety of course. Then, let “romance” take its course. Well, where it leads can certainly heat up any dwindling flame. Do it for your sweetheart. They’ll thank you for it many, many times.
