On what is one of the most romantic days of the year, it’s almost a no-brainer as to what should be included in the gifts we consider in buying our mate. Chocolates, roses, romantic meals, sexy lingerie, soothing music, alluring perfume and cologne are the stocks-in-trade of Valentine’s Day. Why not add a little something extra special and unexpected? How about a couple’s massage? How about relationship coupons for everyday chores you want a break from or some sexy things you’d like your mate to do for you or to you? Or go for simple and sweet with little notes or texts telling your mate how much you appreciate them, things you love about them, or even things you feel no one can do better than they can. Adoration and compliments are every bit an aphrodisiac as chocolate and last a great deal longer, as well as having fewer calories.
In keeping with the adoration theme, when was the last time you were “that couple”? You know the one I’m talking about; that couple that can’t seem to stop staring starry-eyed at each other, can’t keep their hands off each other, and can’t seem to figure take a breath without complimenting each other on how wonderful they are, yeah, THAT couple. Most of us look at that couple in scorn, roll our eyes, and even mutter under our breath for them to get a room; but even though we won’t openly admit it, we’re a little jealous of them. We still want to be at that point in our relationship where we feel we’re rediscovering our mate all over again. So, with keeping in mind that Valentine’s Day is looming in all its glory let’s put a little more effort in what we do for our mates and get creative. I promise, the return with be well worth the effort!
