How important is romance?
When two people start dating, the chemistry is fun and new. They're both on their best behavior for fear of the other one finding out that they're not perfect and life is filled with late night phonecalls and butterflies in your stomach. Right? He buys her flowers, candy, and cards. She makes him special treats and leaves him love notes. It's all fun and exciting. What happens when the romance dies? Two people get comfortable in a relationship and the things that they once did as a gesture of romance, is forgotten like yesterdays news. This doesnt have to happen. Everyone likes to feel special. Flowers just because, love notes in hidden places, text messages for them to read first thing in the morning on their way to work, Intimate gestures when they least expect it. These are all things that can make you feel special and don't take alot of effort. Men like the little things too but I don't thing its quite as important as it is to women. Their idea of awesome is a Sunday filled with football, other men, and some great food for their bellies. Thats OK, as long as you remember your woman the other 6 days of the week. Besides, a day filled with football is a great excuse to go shopping. If you fall into a rut, do something to spice it up. Don't forget the little things nor take the one you love for granted. Choose a date night and spend some quality time together. You should never stop working on your relationship if you want it to last. When I see old people holding hands while they are walking, it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Everyone should experience that. When two people are in a restaurant sitting across from each other with no eye contact and neither one is saying a word, the romance has fizzled. They have forgotten what it was like in the beginning. Your partner should be your best friend. Make time to work on your relationship and never let your partner question your love. They should know it in your actions as well as your words. Right?
