10 Romantic Inspiration Ideas for Your Relationship:
Be aware of what’s most important to her:
Make, design, or purchase a t-shirt with something that she said printed on it.
Be aware of his interests:
Create a brief project together. Choose something that acknowledges an interest of his. The result can be a love-filled product such as a scrapbook, a themed pop-up book, a music playlist, or a main dish.
Sing! Hum! Make some sound. You do not have to be a professional performer. What you have to be is comforting.
Just touch. Successful couples touch each other a lot. It’s a tiny act that delivers a profound message. Touch your partner any chance you get. Perhaps, one day, you’ll learn and then offer sensual massage.
Teach something new:
I enjoy showing my partner something new, and I love learning from my partner. Both feel special. Expect to be surprised and delighted by your partner. Discover anew who he or she is.
Cartoon or doodle or even create an elaborate drawing if your talents run that way. Tuck a little sketch in her lunch bag.
Surprise and re-discovery:
Pack a picnic basket. Pack it with simple goodies that you made yourself. Let your partner unpack it and be surprised. Great tastes will equal more beautiful surprises and love beamed at you. I’ve been known to pack silverware and cloth napkins plus children’s birthday party paper plates, just to be different.
Use words that suggest deep emotional connection such as beloved, love (noun), desire, spirit, soul, eternal, passion, passionate, please, and thank you.
Take a blanket plus a star map and, maybe, jackets. Nothing compares more powerfully than being reminded that we are part of the Great All That Is. Share the experience together.
Remind each other to start each day with thoughts and feelings of gratitude. At bedtime, take a minute to remember all that you have to be grateful for. With daily practice, each of you will be continuously offering your partner the love and peace that feelings of gratitude inspire.
Now that you have read these wonderful ideas take a moment to close your eyes and imagine yourself sharing with your loved one in a way that raises your romantic energy level. Notice how much lighter and happier you feel.
See yourself in this moment and every day as a truly inspired romantic partner.
