The simple way to be romantic!

The easiest way to be romantic is to use your eyes to look deep into someone's eyes. You might think that doesn't work but try it sometime. Right before you kiss your love look into their eyes as if you are looking at something deep inside them. Then after the kiss do the same thing. Now did you feel any connection there if not then you are not doing it right. Searching someone's passion starts with the look in their eye. Not only will this have an effect on you but your partner will notice and feel the power also. Using your deep look you will gain a better understanding of how your partner loves you as you pear into their soul.

Toga Toga

Be a little crazy tonight on Saturday night and have a roman banquet. Get out your white sheets and make them into togas. Then spend the night feeding each other grapes and drinking wine. End the night in great roman style with gorging yourself on sex. Think of it this way at least you won't have clothes laying all over the floor, it will just look like you were changing your sheets.

In the remembrance of the great movie Animal House

Mirrors can be sexy

Have you ever used mirrors to help your romantic side? Simple placement of mirrors can create a different environment. Place mirrors around you house to add effects. Place mirrors to get views of the outside when you are darker corners of your house. You can also place mirrors around to give your place the appearance of a larger space. Mirrors in the bathroom are usually a staple but for added effect place one on the opposite side so you can see your back. This will help when you need to know if your butt looks big in those jeans. Mirrors in the bedroom can add intimacy as long as they are not overdone. Mirrors on the ceiling are a little over done unless you have been in a relationship for a long time, avoid them. Place them around the room to give you a different look at your bed and to help set a more intimate vision to the beholder. A word of caution however, too many mirrors in the bedroom becomes creepy. By using the mirrors in the correct way you will help to make your place a more cheerful place, which in turn make your partner feel more cheery.

Watching other relationships around you fail!

All of us know of other relationships that fail for one reason or another. It can be disheartening when a couple you know and have a relationship with decides to end their relationship. You almost feel cheated by them ending it. Especially when it is what you see as a great couple. You lose heart in your own relationship thinking will ours end like that? First of all you can't let other relationship dictate what you do in your relationship or make you act differently. All relationships can end in disaster or they can be the strongest one ever. That my friend is up to the two of you.!!

Birth control and safe sex.

Thank goodness in today's society birth control and safe sex are starting to get the attention they need. They are even trying to make it sexy. Some of the condom adds I have seen her lately are hilarious. However they are on late at night so kids can't see them. They should have these on during teenage shows in my opinion so at least the kids will think they are sexy. Choosing the right birth control can be an important decision for the two of you not only does it need to help you not get pregnant, at least until you want to, but it needs to be safe also, without taking away your intimacy. The pill and condoms seem to be the most popular methods but they have their draw backs and while all methods have their drawbacks some are more risky then others. Taking the top two for example. Condoms are not as affective if they are not put on in the right manner, and the pill can cause all kinds of drastic side effects in women. Look at other options if these two things scare you and find just the right fit for the two of you.

Great Quotes.

"The deepest principle in human nature
is the craving to be appreciated"
William James

This quote rings so true we all enjoy doing for our partner but is all lost if it is not appreciated. Sure we are suppose to do these things out of kindness and not expecting a return. True love is a give and take commitment by two people. You do not go into a relationship with the expectation that you will be the only one showing love nor do you go in expecting not to put any effort into the relationship. Appreciation is the payment for all you do for your partner. Appreciation cannot be measured like money but it is the most valuable return on your investment of love.

Rap Session

How often do you just sit down to talk about things between the two of you? Do you make time for this type of activity? A rap session isn't about beat boxing or reciting the latest SnoopDog song it is about both of you getting a chance to just talk about things effecting you. It might be the news or your work, or even the latest movie that you have just seen. The point is the rap session is where you just let your feelings out and both of you get a chance to listen and speak to your partner. Pick a time when you will be alone, after the children are in bed and you have time to yourselves. Get a glass of wine, turn the television off, and just speak what is one your mind. Take turns so it isn't just a one sided speech. When it is your turn to listen then you do just that and really listen to what your partner is saying. Let your emotions come out laugh, cry, or celebrate but make sure you are honest not only to your partner but to yourself also. These rap sessions are great ways to build your relationship and make it stronger then it has ever been.

Get some sun.

Want something that will help you romance well get some sun. The sun light is great for your overall mood and it is an important part of life. About this time of year everyone is getting cabin fever and wanting to get outside to soak up some sun. If we are not able to take a vacation during the colder winter months then it has probably been quite some time since you got to enjoy the warm summer sun. The next time you find the sun out make sure to get out in it. Walk to work, or just take a walk and let the good sensations the sun can create start to chip away at that bottled up feeling you have had since winter started.

Great love ballads.

Have you ever watch a cheesy romantic comedy and listened to the soundtrack? If you have you have heard several of the great love ballads. Groups such as Journey, Boston, Chicago, etc made a lot of money singing these songs for young lovers. So why not use them to help boost your love life. Make a playlist of these songs to play in the background of your house during times that lag. In essence you are making your life into a romantic comedy.

Check out this clip from the Band Exile and see if you can remember the song from the movie Happy Gilmore. Maybe you can do a better job of singing then Adam Sandler did in the movie.

What would you do for your Love!

Most of us go out of our way to help our partners. I hear stories of people running out in the pouring rain to get ice cream for their pregnant partners. Or parents that will sit up with their sick children all night and not get a minute of sleep. These are the type of actions that show how much you care about that other person. When you evaluate your relationship however you have to look at if you think your partner would do the same for you. Will they stay up late to massage your back if you hurt it at work? Would they run across town to help you out in the middle of the night? Would they take care of the kids so you could get some rest? If you answer no to these questions then you really need to look at your relationship, does it work with one partner putting all the effort into the relationship? Is there room for selfishness in a relationship? Well if you are strong you can overcome many challenges. No one likes for their good deeds to go unnoticed but for many people out their it is like that. Now you have to compare apples to oranges here. On partner might not be able to go without sleep and perform their job the next day, however they can repay the other partner in other ways. You can't look for a specific return on your investment so don't give a relaxing massage and expect your partner to jump up and give you one right after they are done. Look carefully at your relationship and the things your partner might be doing that you are over looking, it is easy to do. Relationships are like a bicycle built for two. You both have to pedal to get where you need to be, and if one person is doing all the pedaling then they will grow tired faster then the one not pedaling.

Refresh the sheets.

Your bedroom is one of the most important places for romance to happen. So a good practice to get into is changing your sheets often. For starters it shows you care about your partner wanting them to sleep on clean sheets. Plus if you are having sex very often the sheets can get dirty pretty fast. Sleeping in the wet spot is bad enough but think about that spot drying up and staying in your sheets. Get yourself several different sets of sheets, different colors and different fabric types to set specific moods or to deal with the changing seasons. Flannel sheets are great for snuggling up in the colder winter months, while cotton sheets add an airy comfort in the summer time. Colors such as red and black help promote intimacy and silk and satin sheets can make you feel like you are in your own porn movie. You can change the whole dynamic of you bedroom just by changing the sheets. Buy sheets for special occasions and as gifts to make them even more special. Have Christmas sheets with christmas colors, you can also have anniversary sheets if you like. No matter what your taste a little more time between the sheets is never a bad thing in the case of romance.

Speak to each other in code.

Do you ever just want to tell you mate what your thinking and not worry about other people hearing. Maybe you want your man to take you and throw you on the bed and make passionate love to you. Maybe you just want to tell you partner you love them but don't want to hear about it from the other guys and girls at the table. Well, all you have to do is change some words around so that only the two of you know what they mean. Replace sex or love making with baseball then whenever you are around a lot of people you can say to your partner, "Would you like to go to a baseball game" or "I wish I was up to the plate right now" No one will thing about it twice but the two of you will know exactly what it means. Say you want to tell your partner you love them in a crowded setting. You can replace the phrase "I Love You" with "Don't forget to pick up the milk" or "Don't forget to make that phone call" It almost makes it seem like you are spies trying to send coded messages to each other. No matter how it feels you get the point across to each other and no one else.

Love thy self!

When we think of romance we think of doing kind things for the person we love. Sending them flowers, giving them massages, hand in hand walks and passionate love making fill our heads when we think about romance. I want to tell you that by loving yourself you are setting up the romance in your life to become way more better. When we are comfortable with who and what we are we give of a confidence that is like a drug to others. They catch on to the feeling and want and desire to have it for themselves. I am not talking about conceit I am talking about honest to goodness feeling good about yourself. Conceit is trying to show everyone how great you are while loving yourself is an content within yourself. These people that love themselves are never alone and have tons of energy to give to creating romance in their lives. It might sound a little crazy but to get the most out of your romance make sure to love yourself first. If you find trouble doing this make a list of all your characteristics that you think others find appealing to you and read them often to confirm the reasons why you lover yourself. You are a special person and someone somewhere will see that in you also.

Romance is not just a job it's an adventure.

Being romantic is part of being in a relationship. Think about it you didn't even have to try and you were being romantic at the start of your relationship. Why, then, do we have to change that feeling once we have been in a relationship for a bit of time. Why do we stop opening doors, jumping into our partners arms, spend time kissing are all things that at the beginning of our relationship we didn't even thing about, we just did them. Why then do they fall by the wayside once our relationship is established. Think about how happy you were at the start of this relationship and think about your state of happiness now. I am sure you will say that your were happier when you first started dating your partner. This is because we put focus and energy into this new relationship and we get back what we put out. Does that sound right to you! it does to me. With the passing of time we forget to put that energy into our relationship and thus we expect nothing out of it. To improve your relationship you need to start by looking at yourself and getting your focus back on your relationship.

Snuggle time

Once all is done for the day, and you no longer have to think about doing anything it is time to snuggle up together. After a hard day of work, or play, and you have made love it is time for the two of you to fit together like puzzle pieces. It takes some trial and error to find just the perfect placement where you both can feel comfortable and connected to each other during slumber. Spooning is the easiest and most accepted way to snuggle but every couple is different. Some couples like to sleep back to back with their butts touching while others use their feet as if they were hands to hold each other. We always see the woman sleeping on the man's chest in the movies but from most of my conversations, most couples find this uncomfortable. Then the other question that pops up is what do you sleep in while you are snuggling? My favorite is to just be naked, skin on skin is the best in my opinion, plus it makes it easy if you get any urges to be intimate with each other during the night. Light pajamas seem to be the favorite on average though especially if their are any little children in the house. I would love to hear about the different and strange ways our viewers snuggle so drop me a line and let me know your crazy way of snuggling.

The penis the joystick of love

The penis is obviously the key to a man's ultimate sexual pleasure. However playing with his joystick can launch you enter several different levels of love. When you free the man from his desires for sex you give him the ability to focus on other things. Things that might just make your relationship much better then ever. Ladies if you want your relationship to flourish start with quenching his desires and see how much other time you have for the things you want in your relationship. It is common knowledge that a man spends most of his time thinking about sex not on purpose but it is his make up, so what is he going to think about once sex is no longer a question? So if you want more quality time with you male mate this is the way to get it. Next time you wish your male partner would care more about chores, dinner, or playing games with you start by satisfing his ultimate desires, by putting this first you will free up a lot of time for the things you would like to focus on. Ladies the joystick is in your hands do you want to reach a new level or be satisfied playing the same one over and over again?

Spring Training for Romance

With spring right around the corner it is time to get your romance in shape for the coming good weather. Things like walks, outdoor activities and cookouts are almost here. Are you ready to start sharing these things with your partner. Do you know what they like cooked on the grill, do you have areas of your community picked out for your warm weather walks, and do you have a list of outdoor activities planned for the two of you. You need to have a plan in place so that when you get a day with excellent weather you are ready and don't sit around wondering what to do. Keep an eye in your local paper for festivals and events that will start popping up and are great outdoor activities. One of the first signs of spring you might think are flowers but the local youth baseball players will hit the field first. Go out and attend a game even if you don't have any children you will get a good feeling after you watch a game of 5 year olds play. Romance doesn't lay dormant like a lot of things do during the winter but it gives it a different feel when you can spread your romance to outdoor activities.

Flowers with a twist.

For those of you that love to send flowers, women applaud you. However their biggest gripe about this is that flowers don't last and they are not like memories, you don't think about them later on in life. A good alternative is the new fruit bouquet that incorporates tasty fruit into flower shapes. Then they are put on sticks so they can be arranged like your everyday flower arrangement. This is a great idea if you are sending the item to your partner at work or a party that way all the items will not go to waste. Everyone will also know where the person got such a tasty treat giving you even more brownie points.

Click on the title of this post to be taken to the Edible Arrangement web site to see what they have to offer.

A important part of anyone's life is to put some vacation time into it. Time to not worry about work and concentrate on your relationship and your family. I like to look at this time as a reboot for the love. Getting away and experiencing new and exciting things gets you back in that mind set of when you were dating, only now you are sharing all the expense. Vacations can be relaxing, where you just sit by the pool and soak up the sun. They can also be invigorating where you experience as many new things as you can. You just have to find the right combination for the two of you. If you have children involved then you have to find the common denominator that makes everyone happy. Once you do this your vacation or reboot will keep you going until the next one. The last thing you want to do is let your vacation stress you, don't come home and need another vacation. Enjoy yourself and catch up with all the people that mean the most to your.

When your love is sick, it is time to step it up.

How can you be romantic when one of you is sick. Well this is where pitching in and helping do other things becomes romantics. Doing chores so they don't get behind while your partner has to rest to get better is a great idea. This way there is not a load of things to do once your partner gets to feeling better. With the chores out of the way it allows you plenty of opportunity to catch up on the regular romance. This also shows how much you care, by just doing things to make their down time a little better. Cooking and cleaning don't sound romantic but when you are doing it to take some burden off your partner then the tables soon turn. Vacuuming the carpet might score you big points as you partner watched from the couch with their box of tissues and medicine.

Laugh at each other.

One of my favorite things to do in a relationship is to laugh. To me that is a sign that you are having a good time. See how much humor you relationship has in it by counting the number of times you have laughed with your partner in the past week. 5 plus times and your relationship has a good amount of humor in it, 4-2 times and you could work on the laugher in your relationship a bit. Now if it is one or less then you have some work to do. When we think about having a good time we visualize people laughing, same can be said for your relationship. If you need a boost getting this started you need to go no further then you computer. There are many funny things to watch here. For starters you can go to youtube and watch endless streams of other people being stupid and recording it for your enjoyment. You can download a funny movie from itunes or if you enjoy a little sicker humor you can watch the new MTV show "Silent Library" to get your chuckles. Laughter is essential to not only our lives but our relationship also. So loosen that tie and get some tissue to wipe the tears from you eyes as you get set to laugh.

Her wearing his clothes is okay, but it is a little different when he wears her clothes.

One of the most beautiful things to see when I come home is my female partner in one of my t-shirts with only her panties on underneath. It can even be a dress shirt or a sweat shirt. However when you turn the tables it just seems a little creepy if the guy wears the woman's clothes when she comes home. First of all we have to take in account the size matters. Men are generally bigger then their female counter part so putting on their clothes might be a challenge physically. Women's clothes are also cut for the curves of a woman and the guys don't have thinner waistlines then the women. When a woman wears a man's clothes her curves can be noticed even under a larger item of clothing so that make is a little better for her. Plus it is not as much of a gender difference in clothes as women's fashions near mens. Call me old fashion but I don't have the desire to dress in my female partners clothes, I am not knocking anyone that dressing in drag as that is their lifestyle choice. Again going back to me being old fashion I still would like to come home and see my female partner in just her panties and a t-shirt of mine. That is sexy to me.

Save thing for sentimental gifts later.

One thing you should get in the habit of doing is saving things that might be really sentimental later on in your relationship. These little reminders of the past work well as presents during the future. Some of the things I have saved and given as a gift are, the movie tickets from our first date, a flyer from the cruise we got married on and our first email conversations that I printed out before even our first date. At the time these didn't seem like important little tit bits but when you present them to your partner on your 5th year wedding anniversary they seem a little more important. Pictures can also be helpful so take lots of pictures when you do anything together. Other things I can think of that would make great gifts are: pregnancy tests from a child (great for a graduation present for your partner), the recorded version of a song that you first dance to, or some momentous of your first trip together. Heck you could even take a picture of the two of you each time you have an anniversary and then each year give it as a present as you add another picture to it. Memories are so precious to us and the simplest thing can remind us of the great times we have had.

Forget about improving your size and think about your technique.

Gentlemen, you need to forget about wonder drugs that are going to make your penis larger and thicker. Most of these products are just gimmicks to get your money because everyone wants a larger penis. Instead of spending money on something that is made to boost your ego, why not put the money towards a better way of satisfying your partner. Pick up a book on love making techniques or positions. Learning new and exciting ways to pleasure your partner is a far better way to go about improving your relationship then trying to make your penis larger. Studies confirm that most women don't have vaginal orgasms. This tells us that a larger penis is not going to do the trick. Clitoral stimulation is the way to approach improvement in the bedroom. Learn all you can about this little pleasure button and to get the best results go to the source. Ask your partner what they like and let them guide you to a better and more fulfilling love life. You can learn a lot by watching her masturbate if she will let you, study her strokes and the pressure that she puts on areas.

Another great way to spend this money you are saving by not purchasing the incredible penis enlargement cream, is to spend the money going out and having fun. I will be the first person to tell you that if you can go out and have fun the chances of getting it on when you get home are a whole lot better.

Olive Oil - the wonder oil.

We so often focus on the mind and body when we want to increase passion in our life. Sometimes we forget that what we put into our bodies also has a effect on the outcome. Olive Oil is one of the items that we can put into our body that will benefit our passion. Olive Oil helps our blood flow better which leads to better erections and genital stimulation in both male and female partners. Consuming Olive Oil also helps your overall health, which in turn helps your passion thrive. Think about it, if you feel better, you are going to want to do things you might not other wise. When picking an Olive Oil search for the virgin or extra virgin varieties as they have more of the items in them that are good for you. This might seem a little weird but you can also use Olive Oil as a lubricant. Many people swear by this practice and claim that the natural ingredients are much better then the ones that are made in the lab. You can also use the Olive Oil as a massage oil and it is great for your skin and hair. Just make sure to either cover your sheets or use ones that you don't care if they get stained. Now the next time you are in the store tell your partner you want to pick up something that will help improve your romance. Then watch their reactions as you head to the cooking oils section.

Make the most of your time apart to make your time together enjoyable.

When you are in love and apart thing don't seem to go right. However, you should use this time to enjoy the things you normally did before you were in a relationship. No I don't mean go out looking for dates. I mean hang with your buddies or perform an activity or hobby that you have fun doing. By doing this you take your mind off your partner and it gives you space to breath and be an individual. This way when the two of you meet up again the electricity will create those sparks that you both love between the two of you. Relationships are tricky and finding just the right amount of time to be together is a trial and error process. Give yourself room to grow and flourish and your partner will desire you more. Just make sure you don't over due it, not having time for your relationship is just as bad as never being apart. A happy relationship has a great balance of the two. With that balance you also get to very happy people in a relationship.
