Keys to Romance- The Right Time to Be Romantic

When is the right time to be romantic? I think I can safely say that everyday you have the opportunity to be romantic. You can be romantic every chance you get because being romantic is a mindset not a chore. Its something you want to do, not forced. Its leisurely not forced. Being romantic should be as easy as loving the person you're with. If you love the person you're with or at the least like the person you're interested in, then being romantic is something you can do from the very beginning. How you may ask? Well their are ways, I promise you.

From the first moment you meet someone, you can express how beautiful or handsome they are in a poetic way. As you meet them for a first date, you can pick up a small bouquet of flowers or something inexpensive they mentioned during your conversations leading up to your date. On your first date, you can open the doors for them and pull out their seat for them. You can also offer to feed them dessert or hold their hand during a quiet walk. After your first date, you can walk them to their door and kiss their hand goodnight or let them know how much you enjoyed being with them in a way that says you want to see them again.

As you continue to date, you can keep in contact with them, openly express your interests, surprise them with little trinkets of affection or a quiet night at home just the two of you over a home cooked candlelight meal. When you realize you love them for the first time, do something extra special to tell them in a way they won't forget. When you want to take your relationship to the next level and fully commit, you could have a small gathering with your friends and introduce her with pride and love. As you make the decision to propose to her/him, you can take your time looking for a ring that truly expresses their likes and their style, taking into consideration what you know about them OR you could take them shopping at the jewelry store and propose to her there!  And on that great day where you join as one on your wedding day you can say your own vows communicating to her and the whole world how much you love and want them to be the center of your world forever.

See, its not hard to be romantic with each phase of your relationship and equally doable to do every day through sweet text messages saying I'm thinking of you, or surprise lunches at their job, or maybe a bath filled with candles and wine when they get home from work. It doesn't take too much effort but it does take an imagination to come up with different ways to put a blissful smile on your special someones face and heart everyday.  If your goal is their happiness then being romantic is not hard to do. Its actually easy to do when you really love someone. It doesn't have to be big because little things add up to amazing things!

So when is the right time to be romantic? NOW! As you finish reading think of something simple, sweet and loving that you can do to show your special someone you care and adore them. You don't have to be with them right now to do so and I promise you that they will appreciate it.

Please share your romantic moments with us. I look forward to reading them.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope that your New Years was a great one and it brought about hope and happiness for your futures. I took some time off to reflect like I do every year and for most, the New Years brings about change and new goals. For 2015, I hope you added BEING MORE ROMANTIC to your list of goals for this year because our goal remember is to KEEP ROMANCE ALIVE!

Being romantic is not only something awesome to do for your mate to show them how much you love, appreciate and care for them. It is also a way to show what You are made of! It takes a little creativity to be romantic especially if the person you are dating is new to you. Being romantic is also a way for You to show how much You really feel for your special someone. The way you romance a person tells a story about you and your emotions and just how far you are willing to put into your romance.

The New Year can bring on also awareness that maybe you weren't aware of. For me, the New Years was spent with a new friend and his family. For many years I have spent New Years with family and friends combined but this year I wanted to spend it with my special someone. I wanted to start the year off with hopes of a romantic future with someone special. Bringing in the first moments with someone special to me gave me hope for something more. This is true for a lot of people. The person you begin your New Years with is the person you may spend your entire year with! This is refreshing, hopeful and romantic!

So that being said, let's continue to keep ROMANCE alive in 2015 and work on our goal to be more romantic in this festive New Year! Until next time, tell your special someone just how much you appreciate them starting this new year with you and show them in a sweet way just how much you appreciate their presence in your life!
