I studied Shakespearean literature and majored in English. I have written for 10 years. I have been published on various websites and books and magazines as well as helped with Texas legislation for Missing and Exploited children.

How Romantic are you?

Some people are just not the romantic type so if your partner is one of them then they may need a little guidance and encouragement from you. If your husband or wife is one of these non-romantic types then start them off by making suggestions about small things that will make you happy.
