Don't Rekindle A Dying Romance Fuel The Fire This Valentine's Day

Jan 29, 2008
Let's face it. Even the most loving couples can get bored with each other after the years pass. We know we love them, but we are bored and the passion is not there. Don't just rekindle the romance, or fan the flames, add gas to the fire. Let Valentines give us a new reason to show we care and love. Why not try something a bit different, and then make it a habit, a new way of life to change the parameters and depth of the relationship. I know these ideas work time and time again from those who are brave enough to give one or two of them a try (or all of them). It can be great fun for both as well.

Touch her (or him). Whether it is going dancing or giving each other a "private gift certificate" for a mutual massage that night. Don't just write the certificates, do it. Or really go dancing, slow dancing, or both. Hold hands and walk down the sidewalk. A public show of affection, even a minor one, can help reconfirm what you both have known all along. Though you may both be a bit bored, you can change that, and that change doesn't happen overnight, but it can happen if you try this new behavior on one day. It may just become a habit.

Make dinner a celebration. Conjure the most exotic dish you can make. If you are not a born-cook, find a recipe and go by it. The spicier the better. Why not some tandoori chicken or French meal in a wonderful creme sauce. If you don't cook much, find a cookbook or download a recipe from the net, for for this romantic occasion. It is worth it. Don't tell your partner or spouse that you are planning it, only that you are going to cook because it is Valentine's day. They may be expecting a t-bone steak but this time try an exotic spicy ethnic dish, perhaps some wine, and candlelight with soft music in the background. If you feel uncomfortable in the kitchen, make a formal invitation to dress up and go out to an elegant little French bistro or Italian restaurant. Just make it fun and different than the regular routine meal. Watch her (or him) smile in amazement. Send a surprise gourmet lunch to your loved one's workplace. Order it over the phone, pay by credit card and send it from "A secret admirer". When your mate reveals the surprise, just smile and say, "I love you, honey." (or whatever term of endearment you use or used to use).

Wear something sexy underneath that evening, if you are a female, try a thong rather than your regular undergarments and perhaps a nice negligee over it (or no negligee at all, just the thong under your clothing). If you are a male, try some sexy boxers or bikini shorts. If you both love to laugh but forgot how, where something funny and sexy underneath. Of course, reveal this after your romantic meal while the soft music is still playing. There are several online stores that carry this kind of merchandise. Watch how fast this can bring back those old almost-forgotten passionate feelings. One caveat, take a deep breath, it can feel a bit overwhelming at first.

Be imaginative Do one or a combination of these things and it will not just rekindle the flame, but fuel the fire, and could add a whole new dimension for what could be to come in your new relationship.
