“Morning without you, is a dwindled dawn”(Emily Dickinson) – Love is beautiful and what brings out its beauty is romance. Romance is not only about going out on dates, buying the most expensive gifts but the littlest things like giving sincere compliments on your lover’s dress, telling your partner his butt looks like two apples.
Without romance, love is bland. People feel romance fades with time but that is not true, the truth is that most people let work and parts of their life affect romance in their lives. To them romance is not an important factor in their relationships.
These view is wrong because romance keep the fire of love burning in our hearts, it is the reason why those grandparents next door look like young ones. Romance beautifies our lives.
There are ways to be a romantic partner, being a romantic partner can spark feelings of romance in your partner and your relationship will shine as a bald man’s head on a sunny day.
I. Let your partner know that you love them
With every opportunity, tell her how much you love her. Even when he farts, let him know that you love him regardless his dirty habit. Don’t shy away from telling your partner how much you love him or her. Say the words with all sincerity in your heart.
II. Say Sweet Words
Aside the famous three words, other sweet words can also be romantic. “You have gorgeous eyes”, “You have the sexiest smile”, they fail to praise your partner and compliment your partner at every right opportunity you get, shower your partner with appreciation when s/he merit it and even if there is nothing to appreciate him or her for, just appreciate your partner.
It will make your partner feel special which is the essence of romance. You can even go as far as saying how flat his butt is.
III. Show Some Love
Verbal caress is not enough, actions defend the power of words. Show your partner how much you love them. Squeeze her palm to show your support once in a while, kiss his forehead before his friends, kiss her cheeks before you leave her side, slap his butt when you walk pass him. Laugh with your partner about stupidest things. Little touches, hugs, kisses will lit a warm feeling in both your partner and your hearts.
IV. Give your partner your self
Let your partner see all versions of you. Do not hide any version of you, the good, the bad, the ugly. Let your partner see all forms of you so that he or she can understand you. Share your love for football with her, let him know how much you love shoe shopping. Let her know you have a drinking problem, let him know you are a chimney, let him know you have a farting (or in local parlance, messing) problem. Share your self with your partner.
V. Be there
Always be there for your partner, at his promotion celebration, at her graduation ceremony. Be there for him when his boss is frustrating his life, be there for her when her family is pressurizing her to study the course she hates. Be there when he accidentally smears soup on his beard or when a leaf gets stuck in between her teeth.
VI. Shower each other with gifts
Endeavor to always gift your partner something. From a new dress, to a new shoe, to that special she has been dying to get, to that once in a year event ticket. Always gift your partner something, but it must come from your heart and it must be thoughtful, only then will it be beautiful no matter what it is.
VII. Tolerate your Partner’s flaws
Don’t be quick to yell or judge your partner based on their flaws, mistakes or errors. Calmly correct your partner when s/he does something wrong. Defend her in public and correct her in private, extol him in front of his friends, scold him in private. Remember you are meant to help your partner be the best version of himself or herself.
VIII. Alone time is a must
Always set time out of your busy schedule to make time to hang out with your lover. Go on dates, take a walk in the evenings, play games, cuddle up on a cold night. Hangout at the movies. Don’t be too busy to be with the one you are in love with. Let him or her know that even though the world is a bee hive, you always make time for her or for him.
IX. Everything is important
Take nothing for granted. Let him or her know how blessed you are to have s/he in your life. Also take into cognizance, every thing that makes him or her happy. The thing that made your partner ecstatic, makes your partner sad, makes your partner depressed. Never forget these things, and be empathetic to your lover.
X. The Golden Rule
The golden rule that says do unto others what you want others to do unto you. Do not do things that will, you won’t tolerate, to your partner. Obey this beautiful rule.
Romance is one of the best ways to show your partner, you care about him or her, that you love him or her. So today, try to wack your partner’s butt, kiss his or her cheek and say “I love you “. This has been Relationship Corner with Eddie Schwaggs
