Does Romeo or Juliet swoon when you walk into a room, or do they even spare you a glance when you get home? Is their voice all soft and mushy when they hear the sound of yours on the other end of a telephone, or do they exhibit more enthusiasm talking to someone at tech support? Are fireworks going off when you kiss, or does it feel like you’re locking lips with a cold fish?
If you’re living more like roommates than lovers, is there anything you can do to change it?
As a romance author, I find I’m a bit of an expert on – well – romance, and I say…there’s a good possibility. If you’re willing to put forth a little effort.
I have a question for you. It doesn’t matter if you’re a guy (Romeo) or a gal (Juliet). What I’d like to know is this – how are your romantic gestures being received? Are you even making romantic gestures? If grades were being issued, do you think would you receive an A+…or a big, fat F? Maybe somewhere in-between? Okay. Yeah, that was like four questions.
This scene from Two Weeks notice is a prime example of what can happen when love isn’t expressed appropriately. We all know that George is in love with Lucy. He relies on her to the extreme, expects everything from her…but gives nothing in return. At this point in the movie, he rates an F.
Are you a romantic fool, or a fizzled out firecracker?
If you’d like to add some romance to your relationship, I can help!
Each week, I’ll be sharing a low cost (or no cost) way you can show your someone special exactly how much they mean to you. Don’t worry, I won’t suggest that you stand on a busy street corner singing Total Eclipse of the Heart at the top of your lungs. Although if that’s something you’re comfortable with, and you think Romeo or Juliet would start swooning (and not from humiliation), go for it.
See you next week for the first tip. If you’d like to be notified when it’s available, go ahead and enter your email address near the upper right-hand corner of this page. Thanks for stopping by!
If you think that any of the suggested tips are a good fit for you, and you decide to give them a try, I’d love to know if you got the results you hoped for. Although I can’t guarantee you’ll get any results, most people respond well to sweetness, consideration and attention. Just remember, you will need to exercise some patience, and be consistent. Anything worth having usually requires effort.
