Remember the wild and crazy excitement you and your Valentine shared during your courtship? With a little imagination, it’s easy to rekindle that you-make-my-heart-skip-a-beat kind of spark. Having trouble? These passion pointers are sure to help rev up the romance in your relationship.
1. Ditch the Distractions
To get his full attention, lose the laptop, turn off the TV, and disable the doorbell.
2. Set the Stage
Chill the Prosecco, put on some Michael Bublé, light plenty of candles, and splash on a seductive scent. Call your honey’s name, and he’ll come running.
3. Keep Him Guessing
Do something unexpected and fun, like running a scented bubble bath for two in the middle of the afternoon.
4. Compliment Your Guy
Stretch the truth if you have to. Sometimes a little white lie does more than “the little blue pill.”
5. Seize the Moment
Romance can start in the kitchen and follow you into the bedroom.
6. Get Physical
Surprise him with a spontaneous gentle touch or kiss. You won’t believe the response you’ll get if you’re the initiator.
7. Spend the Night Out
Whether you book the Holiday Inn or the Hyatt, a change of scenery can do wonders for your relationship.
8. Think Thong
It’s hard to set the mood in flannel pajamas, granny panties, and slipper socks. You have to feel sexy before you can be sexy.
9. Take a Second Honeymoon
And a third and a fourth! Surprising him with packed bags and a secret destination can be just the ticket to keeping the romance alive.
