Did you get or receive flowers for Valentine’s Day? Was it as special as you and your partner are to each other? Or was it a romantic gesture that does not reflect your relationship the rest of the time? Did you get candy for Valentine’s day? Was it as sweet as your partner is to you? Or a romantic gesture that does not reflect your relationship the rest of the time? Was it just a Hallmark holiday, something you’re supposed to do? Or a reminder that this is something you want to do? Like to do?
Romance as a way of life in your relationship goes a long way toward improving your feelings toward each other. But you also have to remember that partners may have different concepts of what romance is. For her it may be the flowers and candy. For him it may be his favorite dish, one that he knows requires time and effort.An extra special bottle of wine. Whatever romance means to your partner, give it often and lovingly. And with the romance, watch your love grow and change.
In this context, Valentine’s Day should be every day.
