Every Time is a Time for Modern Romance
Time has always been an issue for married couples. However, lack of time should not be used as an excuse for lack of romance in marriage. Modern romance is all about being creative. Not everything has to be planned; it is more fun to seize romantic moment when they present themselves. For instance, here are some ideas of day to day moments that have great potential for romance.
Honey, I’m home – There is something special about coming home to a spouse. It’s hard not to be excited about seeing a significant other after a long hard day at work. One way to seize this moment and make it even more romantic is to sweep your wife off her feet; literally. Unless she is on the phone or carrying something, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to pull this off without a hitch.
Enjoy a romantic getaway at home – Do you often wish you had the time or money for regular romantic getaways? You don’t need to be away from home in order to enjoy a getaway. You can have a romantic “getaway” in your home. With a couple of scented candles, flowers, romantic music and sensuous food such as chocolate-covered strawberries, you can transform your home into the romantic getaway of your dreams.
Another effective yet simple option for modern romance is to leave a trail of flower petals from the door to the bedroom. This gesture is a clear sign of interest in intimacy. If you do not have enough time to go out and get flower petals, a trail of lit candles or even clothes will do. You can bet that your spouse will be eager to see what’s waiting at the end of the trail.
A romantic message – Do you ever call your spouse at work just to remind him or her of your love? This small gesture says that you are thinking about your partner and that he or she is always on your mind. If you feel a phone call might be too disruptive, text, email or sneak a romantic note into their lunch box. You can also mail them a Rolodex card with your contact information and a short note saying “call when lonely.”If you are going for a grand gesture, sending a large bouquet of flowers to your wife’s work place or the place where she has her lunch will do.
When it comes to modern romance, you have to seize romantic moments as they present themselves. Having limited time is no excuse. Working couples don’t have to wait until they get home to be romantic. They can take advantage of their breaks at work to leave romantic messages for each other.
