MANY DIY WAYS TO PUT THE ROMANCE BACK IN YOUR LIFE AND KEEP IT THERE FOR A LONG TIME TO COME

MANY DIY WAYS TO PUT THE ROMANCE BACK IN YOUR LIFE AND KEEP IT THERE FOR A LONG TIME TO COME

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. Ask your husband or boyfriend to buy you flowers on the spur of the moment and not only after an argument or for a birthday or anniversary. Let him know that this is very romantic and it will make you feel more loving towards him. Relationships are a matter of give and take so it should come naturally that if someone does something nice for you that you will want to willingly return the favor. Just make sure that no-one is keeping a score card here as that will definitely put a dampener on any romance.
