Tips to Keeping your *LOVE* alive
Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Tips to Keeping your *LOVE* alive
What are some things you and your significant other do to keep the torch lit & the passion alive? Do you do "Date Night" or put the kids to bed and have a glass of wine & talk about your day? What is your special escape for just the two of you to re-connect & recharge?
I don't know if the things we do for each other "keeps the passion alive" but I do know that we show we love each other by doing things for each other. It can be something as small as me buying his favorite brand of chocolate milk to watching a game with him (he's an avid sports nut!) , bring in the trash bins for him, to cuddling. We don't do date nights with each other. We find we miss our children too much. Instead, we do Family Movie nights. We all get to cuddle and watch a movie. We love that.
He'll do things for me as well. He might empty the dishwasher (he hates any chore having to do with dishes! lol), he makes me his "super secret" blend of coffee on weekends, he'll watch the kids so I can have "me time", he'll bring in a flower from the yard (and I do mean only the flower! No stem, etc.) . Just stuff like that.
We also like to spend at least an hour together after the children have gone to bed. We'll watch a program we both like such as "The Closer" or something silly like "George Lopez." Lately, we've challenged each other to a game of "Jeopardy."
Dh loves when I watch him play basketball. He's in a league. He'll wink at me during a game, or he'll indicate that his next shot is for me.
I know these things don't seem like they are big things, but they are the things that only we share. They are special to us.
Oh, we'll have been married 9 years in May.
