Longing for Romance? Date your Husband.
Updated: Oct 5, 2019
Longing for romance? When was the last time you had a romantic date with your husband? If
you have children or demanding jobs or both then finding time for romance is a huge challenge for couples. Do you watch other couples walking hand in hand and long for the romantic dating days? Often when you can arrange for the children to spend the night at a friends, your first instinct may be to collapse on the couch and just rest, think and relax. But after too many of the same old thing, a couple needs to make an effort to rekindle the heat. Plan an evening out, dress up, wear perfume and flirt with him. Laugh freely and let any negativity go, just ignore troubles and keep the happy mood. At first, one of you may have trouble shaking off the responsibilities and worries but give each other a chance to get back in the game. Try swimming at night in a heated pool together or play your favorite music loudly, dancing in the living room. A walk on the beach or boardwalk holding hands and taking part in life instead of watching other people on television will help to set the mood. Turn off the computer, television and phones for a few stolen hours and hopefully you will find the romance you are looking for at home with your husband. Look deeply into his eyes and smile happily at him. Love can be grand.
