Romance taken a back seat?
When your back seat is filled with car seats romance can be the last thing on your mind. So in celebration of St Valentine, here ‘s some wonderful advice for your partner on how to keep (or jump start) the romance in your relationship.
Don’t forget to forward it to your significant other’s inbox or print out and put on the fridge!
1. Say Nice Things
Saying nice things about your partner to someone else while they’re in earshot is romantic and much nicer than the usual “…and he forgot it was recycling day AGAIN”.
2. Buy Something They Want
Don’t fall into the usual trap of buying something your partner needs (there is nothing romantic about a weed trimmer). If finances allow, buy a gift for absolutely no reason other than you knew it would make them happy. It’s a small step from thoughtfulness to sexiness!
3. You Can’t Go Wrong With a Foot Massage
Or shoulder, or full-body. BUT if you expect to be rewarded with sex for a humble foot rub, you won’t win any relationship points. We’re on to you buddy…
4. Send a Love Note
No, it doesn’t have to be a sonnet (although you may win points for trying) but an email, text or voicemail saying something complimentary “you looked so nice this morning” or simply thanking your partner for being awesome, is a wonderful (and affordable!) way to be romantic.
5. Organise A Surprise Outing
Yes, this includes arranging someone to look after the kids. Take the initiative to plan a nice date - it doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated, just organised by you and a surprise.
Use every anniversary as an excuse to celebrate. This doesn’t mean expensive gifts; it can be as simple as feeding the kids first and cooking a special meal once the kids are in bed. Acknowledge the important things that make you the couple you are… First date, engagement, wedding, mortgage, anything!
