A good relationship can’t just be found.
It has to be created.
Our lives revolve around love, be it with friends, family or lovers.
We need love in our lives to feel better and live happier.
But are you in a good relationship that’ll give you the bliss and warmth that you crave for?

It takes just ten little aspects to create a good relationship.
If you and your partner can boast of achieving all ten of these relationship factors or if you’re almost there, you’ve definitely got the potential to experience all the happy love the world has to offer!

What is a good relationship?
Simply put, a good relationship is a beautiful experience.
It’s easy to find it but it’s even more easy to overlook it.
You can spend all your life looking for true love and a good relationship, and you may never experience it even if it’s right in front of your eyes.
After all, a good relationship requires the happy and willing effort of two lovers, and it blooms more with each passing day.
Want to know if you’re in a good relationship? These ten good relationship factors will show you the way.

#1 You’re happy to be with your lover
In a good relationship, both the partners are happy to be with each other. Good lovers complement each other and balance the relationship. On the inside, you may truly believe that you’re a desirable and attractive person who can get anyone you want. But at the same time, do you also truly believe that your partner too has the qualities to attract anyone they want?
Infatuation is fickle, but love isn’t. Most people get into a relationship and start looking out as soon as the infatuation phase is over because they assume they deserve someone better. In a good relationship, both partners know they’re hot stuff, but they also know they’re perfect for each other.

#2 You argue constructively, if ever
Arguments are never bad, as long as it’s limited to a rare occasion. After all, an argument is only a sign of misunderstanding unless it results because of a bigger conflict like an affair
In a good relationship, you may have differences or arguments, but it’s always constructive to the relationship. You voice your opinions and help your partner understand how you’re feeling and what you really want. By bring up a touchy subject and clearing the air, it helps bring both of you closer in the long run, just as long as the same mistakes don’t happen again.
And always remember this, irrespective of who started a fight, it’s the responsibility of both partners to end it as soon as possible.

#3 You love your partner unconditionally
Lovers in good relationships are always happy. And as corny as it may sound, they feel happier when their partner’s feeling happy. Call them soul mates if you must, but in a good relationship, the happiness one experiences isn’t just one sided.
Have you ever gone out of your way to make your partner feel good, even if it means sacrificing something for yourself? 
When you’re in a good relationship, both partners go out of their way to make their lover feel good. Do you have that unconditional love in your relationship?

#4 You communicate and learn
A relationship matures over time. While your partner and you may have fallen in love at first sight and had the perfect chemistry, it takes take a bit of work to retain it.
In a good relationship, both partners don’t take each other for granted. They communicate with each other and understand about each other’s lives, be it personal or professional. Spend time together and learn about each other’s thoughts and ideas. We change as individuals all the time, so make sure you know your partner for the person they are now, not what they were years ago when you first met. In a good relationship, you should be the shoulder to lean on for your partner and the voice that motivates them. 
Do you really know everything about your lover? Do you motivate your partner and help them realize their dreams and aspirations?

#5 You respect each other
True love isn’t enough to hold a relationship together. In a good relationship, both partners must respect each other too. In your everyday life as a couple, you have to take a lot of decisions all the time. Do you make all the decisions when it comes to matters of the relationship, or does your partner do that?
If you do respect each other, you’d give importance to each other’s opinions before making a decision. On the other hand, if you don’t really respect your lover, you may ask for an opinion but do what you feel is best anyways. It may work for a while, but eventually one partner will start to dominate the other psychologically and that can only lead to subdued or even open frustrations in the relationship.

So what is a good relationship really? It’s a perfect relationship where two lovers understand each other and love each other. Click here to read the next five points on good relationships and sex, work, support, trust and most importantly, love in how to have a healthy relationship.

Romantic Love Stories – Magic Moments

Romantic Love Stories – Magic Moments man woman love romance sunset romantic couple

 When you let your happy life slip past you in the pursuit of materialistic happiness, all it takes is one magical moment to pull everything back to ground reality. Jonathan Mathers narrates his story of the pursuit of riches, and finally, his run-in with love to create a romantic love story worth reading.

You may not have noticed this, but I believe that there are always life-altering moments in every single person’s life.
And more often than not, it’s the little things and little decisions that bring about a great change.
And one thing that’s funnier than all of this put together is that, the biggest changes in life usually happen when the past merges with the present.
I’m talking about get-togethers, bumping into old school friends, and other things that run along those lines.

The pursuits of my young life
When I was a young boy, I wanted to be a big tough guy.
And by the time I was in college, I wanted to be the richest guy in the world.
And finally when I was done with formal education, I had decided to make some money. I unclogged all the empty dreams in my head and worked hard towards my real dream. Making money.
To me, at that point of time, it sounded like a master-crafted idea. Really, who would ever think of money, everyone I knew wanted job satisfaction.
I would be the only guy who thought of money more than anything else, so maybe, just maybe I would be able to grow money on trees, while the rest of the world sold their Ferraris, converted into monks, took a year off to eat, pray and love, look within, or just search for job satisfaction in architecture like Howard Roark.
Now, a decade later, I know how wrong I was.

An encounter with the ghosts of my past and future
I did manage to do what I wanted to do best. Make money. But along the way, I had lost everything that mattered most to me a good decade ago. I didn’t have friends, I had business associates. I didn’t have free time, I played golf and spoke business. I didn’t take off on vacations. I just travelled the world on business prospects. I had become the one thing I was afraid of becoming.
I was a man who didn’t know to draw the line between fun, games, and work. I still don’t know how to sort my life and its different aspects. My work is my life and my life, my work.
Six months ago, I had a panic attack when I sat out on the balcony of my hotel, after a long strenuous business meeting. My mind was so full of thoughts, it was driving me insane. I could barely hold on to the cigarette in my hand, and I felt faintish. My heart ached, and my lungs couldn’t take in any more air. I was fine in a minute, but that shook me up. I may have consumed a few doubles of alcohol, but I was totally consumed by work. I needed to change my life, before I lost it all. I had no personal life. I had no friends. I had achieved my dreams, and lost everything else that ever mattered.
I wanted my friends back. I felt like Ebenezer Scrooge from ‘A Christmas Carol’. The ghosts of my past and my future had knocked on my door, in its own way.
The day I got back home, I made a couple of calls to the few friends who had still decided to keep in touch with me. Thank God for that! And I asked them if they wanted to meet up. At first they were shocked to hear that I wanted to meet up, but then, the plans were on in full swing. We chatted over the phone like little school kids, and our conversations, as with every man stuck with his old friends, were lewd and crude.

The excitement of a reunion
The guys took up the rest of the planning and decided to call in eight of our BFF buddies back from school for a reunion of sorts. I couldn’t recollect it at that point, but we did have a close knit group of friends back then, there were nine of us in all, and we used to have a great time, all the time.
As I lay in bed, I remembered all our young enthusiastic faces on the day of graduation. We hugged each other and I made everyone promise that we’d always keep in touch.
It took me almost ten minutes to even recollect all the names of the eight other people in my group. How ironic, isn’t it? It disgusted me.
We had decided to meet up that Saturday night, and that thought excited me. I was quite certain that I was the most excited of them all. They didn’t know how much this meeting, I mean, get-together, meant to me. It felt like my personal Last Supper. I was so scared to die all alone. Stupid thought though, I was still 30 and exercised six days a week. I missed my friends and I missed the hours of idle chatter and laughter. I was sick of being uptight and held back all the time. I hated being on guard. I was sick of chasing money. I just wanted to be free, and not be judged. And only my old friends could help me there.
I dragged on through the week, kept busy by work and other uptight meetings with associates. But deep inside, I wanted the week to just fly past, and I wanted to get away, even if it was just for a night. Finally, after a long drawl, Saturday evening finally arrived.

Reclaiming my lost life
I kicked off my boots, flung away my suit, and had a long, cold shower. And for the first time in years, wore a simple tee and blue jeans. It had been close to a decade and a half since I had even given all my friends a second thought. I had no photos, no scrapbooks, no facebook account, nothing. I had erased my past because I wanted nothing to do with it. That thought made me feel like shit.
I left my lonely house early, I had no dog to say bye to. Just the flicker of the boobtube going blank announced my exit. I got to the restaurant on time. I had made sure we’d go to this restaurant, the same one in which we used to hang out on Saturdays, when we were in school. A little, shabby joint that was the best place in the world for me, back then. I walked in and asked about the reservation. It wasn’t necessary, there was no such thing as reserving tables in this restaurant. I looked all around the restaurant, and I panicked.
Was I not able to recognize them?
And then, I felt a sharp searing pain on my back. And then I saw a face that I longed for. A friend! A friend that I truly recognized. “Jon, you bastard…” Sam yelled out.
“Asshole, how the hell are you, dude…” I blurted out, without giving barbarism a second thought. We hugged each other, and for the first time in a long time, I felt the warmth of a real friend’s hug.
“They’re all on the way, buddy… they’re coming together. Shaun and Ali are picking them up.”
“That’s cool…” I replied, without thinking much. It felt good to see even one of them. He obviously had no idea how much even seeing him meant to me. We sat down in a huge table and ordered for beers. It had been a while since I had tasted beer.
We started speaking and soon, we were lost in a conversation. It felt like hardly a minute or two had passed by, it was actually half an hour, when I heard a huge outcry of people calling out my name. Faces, faces, and more new faces. And faces that slowly transformed into ones that I recognized, and knew well. Something erupted within me, sheer happiness and joy, I was overwhelmed with gratitude and my throat went dry. I had a hard time swallowing, as each of them ran up and threw themselves in my arms. It had been so long. And I had been such an idiot.
There was Shaun, Sam, Richard, Ali, Kimberly, Mary, and Brittany. They all looked the same, just older. Even today, I wouldn’t be able to explain the emotions that overwhelmed me that evening.
“Tanya’s on her way, she’s held up with something…” Kimberly spoke out to no one in particular.

A tingle of romance in all the friendship
I got to know so much about my old friends in those hours, minutes or probably seconds that we sat together. Some of them were married, some even had babies, and one of them was engaged, due to get married the next month. I had been too busy to give a damn and they had given up on me anyway. But now, I wanted them around me more than anything else.
The rest of my friends were in touch with each other, and knew everything. Apparently, all of them made it a point to meet at least once a month. They had stuck by the promise I made for them. I felt slightly nauseated, and very guilty. I looked away, without anyone noticing it.
Sometime later, a pretty girl walked in and waved out, straight at us. Everyone waved back, but me.
“Jon… Omigawd… you look so different!”
I looked at her, stifling my incomprehension, and then it hit me. It was Tanya. Without her braces. Without her pig tails. Without her huge outrageous earrings. This Tanya was gorgeous. This Tanya had long, beautiful hair. This Tanya drew the air out of the enclosed space. And this Tanya actually called me by my name. I couldn’t remember a time when she had addressed me by any other term but ‘Idiot’. I smiled back as wide as I could. Words hardly had any significance at moments like these. We hugged tight and started laughing at each other. 
“Idiot, you look so bloody different. And look at you, didn’t bother to keep in touch with us, did you?”
“Tanya… why… I’m sorry… Gosh, you look so different…”
“Whatever, idiot… Okay, hope you guys ordered my drink…”
Everything was so confusing to me when Tanya walked in. I had given up all of what I was experiencing in the pursuit of happiness, and yet, I felt more happy sitting with all my school friends who made no big deal about meeting up. I had actually let all my happiness drift away, and ran in pursuit of something that I thought would be the only way to achieve happiness.
Tanya sat down next to me, and her hands were on my shoulder the whole time. She didn’t think too much about it, but I did. I didn’t know why. It felt weird. 

The start of a romantic love story
A hug was one thing, but Tanya’s hands on my shoulder made me feel uncomfortably happy. We sat down until late night and there wasn’t a moment when there was silence. The dinners I remembered were sober, quiet experiences with occasional toasts and happy talks laced with ego. Here, there was no ego, it was frank, and brutal at times.
I was laughing so much my jaws were hurting. I exchanged numbers with everyone, and we decided to meet up the next weekend. I didn’t want to be too enthusiastic in bringing that line up, even though my heart ached to let them go. I had let them down once before. This time, I wanted to be the mute acceptor, one who would keep his promise. Soon, everyone had to get back, and I bearhugged every one of them.
“Richard, drop me to my place. I didn’t get my car, I caught a cab” Tanya snapped out at Richard.
I don’t know how that happened to me, but I blurted out, “Hey, I’ll drop you, it’s cool. I’ve got nothing to do.”
“Ok…ay… If you really say so…” and she just flashed a cute smile at me. The guys smiled at me too. Maybe they knew there was something more than just stale beer in the air.
I hadn’t seen a girl smile that way at me. Nor had I ever felt my heart skip a beat before. I was so happy and intoxicated by their company, and yet, Tanya’s presence was doing more damage than all the others. All of us hugged each other one more time, and Tanya and I got into my car. We spoke all along the way, and soon, we got to her place. I just looked at her, obviously she wouldn’t ask me to come up, I thought. She didn’t.
“Are you busy?” she asked without preamble.
“What do you mean…?”
“Well, it’s been a while, and I’m free tomorrow, so I wanted to know if we can catch up. The other guys are all dating or hitched on Sundays, and I’m not… so… you free tomorrow? Hey, wait a minute, are you busy with your girlfriend or something?”
“No… no girlfriend!” I stammered back, I didn’t know why I was stammering. I felt so out of control with her. I was always the one in control all the time. Until that moment.
“All right then, I’ll come over to your place tomorrow…” she said, as she got off the car.
I stepped out too, and walked up to her. We hugged long, and I looked at her. She looked back at me. It didn’t feel like we were friends anymore. The air was crackling with something I couldn’t explain.
“I really missed you all these years. Even though I never realized it,” I said as I looked into her eyes, “… and you look so very beautiful.”
And at that point, I swear to God, even in the dark, I could see her cheeks go pink. She was blushing! She slapped my face lightly, and her hands took their time to slide away from my cheek. “Idiot…” she smiled. Her smile was infectious. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”

The magic moments of experiencing love
I drove back home, with a mad vigor that I couldn’t understand. I was ecstatic. I was beaming at just about anyone who looked my way. I even smiled wildly at a cop at a traffic stop like an idiot. Was I in love? Was it my friends? Or was it Tanya? Or is this what true happiness felt like? I didn’t know. Frankly, I didn’t care. I just lay in bed and stared at the blank space above me. My jaws hurt. I closed my mouth. I was smiling the entire way back home. The thought of Tanya’s smile still lingered in my mind.
I woke up early the next morning, I hardly slept that night, coming to think of it now. I called Tanya up, spoke to her about nothing in particular for a couple of hours, and then, we decided that she’d come over to my place.
An hour later, she was home. In my place.
She really did have something that sucked all the light out the room. She was positively glowing, radiating like Claire Danes in Stardust. And she looked beautiful. All of a sudden, all my expensive chandeliers looked meek in front of this glorious aura that filled up every corner of the room with a sense of happiness I had never known. Even my décor seemed to behave that way, everything looked a lot better around her.
I smiled at her. She smiled back instantly. Her smile was captivating, spontaneous, and yet, so true. And definitely infectious.
We sat down in front of the television and spoke for hours. We ordered pizzas and spent the entire afternoon at home. She told me about her job and about her exes. And I spoke about mine. I kept the descriptions of my life short. Actually, there wasn’t much to tell her anyways.
It was late in the afternoon, and the sun shone lazily through the thick glass panels that made up one side of my living room.
The cold glass had always reflected how I felt about my life, cold, hard and impenetrable. But today, as we leaned against it together and stared at the setting sun, it felt warm. I could have stood there forever, watching the sun set, and birds take their final flight for the day. I looked at Tanya, she looked back. And smiled. I guess she knew I liked her, but she didn’t want to make a big deal out of it.

“You look so beautiful, Tanya…”
She smiled again. “Why Jon, thank you!” she laughed back with a mock curtsy.
“Let’s watch a movie, okay, I have a few good ones.”
“Sure…” she smiled again.
I couldn’t understand what was happening. I was with someone that I had avoided for the past decade, and here I was, falling for her in an instant. She was mesmerizing and captivating, she was beautiful and stunning, synonyms and rhymes made no justice to the aura she infused into the air.
She picked the movie, “The Holiday”. I hadn’t seen it. She hadn’t either. I pulled the curtains shut and dimmed the lights.
The movie was great, and somewhere in the movie, there was this point when Jude Law and Cameron Diaz realize they’re in love with each other. I remember that because it was around that point when our fingers touched. I didn’t know what to do, pull back or be brave. She didn’t do anything either. But I could sense the infusion of discomfort and felicity tingling at the point where our fingers touched. She felt it too. We were both very rigid.

Magical moments and the blurry moments
A good ten minutes passed. Silence. The movie was blurred in my mind. I couldn’t focus. I can’t remember breathing. But I felt something within me. And the feeling was intense. I wanted to hold Tanya in my arms.
Have you come across times in your life when you want to do something and the next instant, everything’s a blur and you’re doing what you wanted to do, irrespective of the consequences? This was my time.
I didn’t think, but I turned to face Tanya. She looked at me. Her eyes were saying something, but I was too lost to read it. I slid my hand away from hers. She looked confused now. The next instant, I wrapped it around her. So many flashes of thoughts flickered through my mind in that span of hardly a second or two. So many emotions ran through my veins, like never before. But when I hugged Tanya, everything disappeared. It was bliss. I was in heaven, lost somewhere in time and in space that was warm and so full of love. I felt her hands move gingerly across my back, softly and purposefully, until it reached a point where it stayed firmly still.
Time was such a lousy consideration here. Nothing in the world was a consideration anymore. Nothing mattered anymore. Just her. And me.
Her hands slid down, and as if on cue, I did the same. And then, she clasped my hands and looked into my eyes. I stared back, trying to read what she wanted me to know. She smiled, as if she knew what I was thinking. She kissed my cheek.

It left a cold, and yet, burning spot on my face. I wanted to feel that forever. I ran my fingers through her soft hair, they felt like strands of fine silk, and smelt of cinnamon. We didn’t speak. But we didn’t stop communicating. There was something in the air. And it was magical.

Jonathan and Tanya have been in love ever since and life couldn’t get any better for both of them. They’ve moved in together and have a dog. She still calls him an idiot. He still can’t stop smiling when he sees her. A chance get-together that leads to a beautiful ending, how can that ever not be a beautiful romantic love story?

When Does Age Difference in Relationships Matter?

When Does Age Difference in Relationships Matter older old man younger young woman girl couple love

 There are times when age difference in relationships really matter and other times when it really doesn’t. Find out if both of you are age compatible.

We build our entire life with plans and checklists.
We do the same with love too.
But almost all the time, we realize too late that love is blind.
You may have a list of traits and things you want in a partner, but you’d end up falling for someone else who’s completely different.
So does that mean your partner’s wrong for you?
It definitely doesn’t.
But with the unpredictability of love comes the uncertainty of confusing emotions.
One of the biggest confusions with love that most of us have is the age difference aspect that all of us make such a big deal about.

Does age difference in relationships matter?
Sometimes, the age difference between two lovers makes no difference.
But almost all the time, age difference can play a big role in the success of a relationship.
If you’re dating someone who’s several years older or younger than you, here are a few things you need to give a thought about.
And once you’ve pondered over these few details, there’s a good chance you’ll know if your love can survive the odds.

How old are you today?
How old are you and your partner today? Relationships are affected by time in phases, and what can seem blissful at one stage can make you panic at another.
If both of you are younger and in your teens or early twenties, even a few years of age difference can have a huge impact on the relationship. But as you enter your thirties or forties, the worry about the difference in age starts to diminish, only to resurface again in the fifties and the sixties.

Age difference in relationships for a teenager
Youth is wasted on the young, true, but it’s still an experience that’s cherished for a lifetime. Live your youth to the fullest and really, live like a teenager.
If you’re a teenager, don’t even consider dating an older person. It’s just not worth it. Don’t lose your precious teen years trying to pretend to be a mature adult just because you’re dating one. Older men and women know how to snag someone in their teens because they already know how to impress and draw a younger teen that’s always looking for attention. Almost always, someone who’s in their late twenties may want to date you only to take advantage of your naivety and innocence.
A word to the older men and women who want to date young teens, don’t rob someone else of their youth for your happiness even if they’re an easy catch. It’s selfish and can change a teenager’s life forever.

Difference in age and compatibility in relationships
For a teenager, it may be an obvious answer. But once you’re past your teens, every relationship that involves a significant age difference is a confusing complication. There are so many factors that test your compatibility that you really have to weigh your options and think twice about any kind of relationship you get into, let alone relationships with an age difference.
But if you find yourself tossing and turning in your bed over the age difference in your relationship, here are a few compatibility testers that can help you clear your mind.

Emotional maturity
Emotional maturity is the biggest hurdle in relationships with an age difference. It can play a huge part in deciding your fate as a couple. Younger lovers are almost always more restless, impatient and enthusiastic, while the older lovers are calmer and patient. How is it in your relationship? Is the difference in emotional maturity and experience driving a wedge in the romance?

Each other’s habits and interests
Someone born in the seventies or before, and another person born in the eighties or nineties can seem similar on the outside. But once both of you live together, you’d start to notice a huge difference in personal behavior and even expectations of their partners.
Do you work out every morning while your partner likes sleeping late? Are you an early sleeper while your partner stays awake till dawn? Do you prefer PB & J for breakfast while your partner likes a nutritious breakfast with calculated calories? Or is Lady Gaga on your playlist while your partner prefers Pearl Jam?
While these little details can seem cute at first, it can create serious differences that can end a relationship once you’re both past the infatuation.

Insecurities and age
Nobody likes aging, and the older person in the relationship definitely doesn’t. When you do see your partner having a happy conversation with someone their own age, you may find yourself wondering if your partner connects better emotionally with someone their own age instead of you. Have you ever felt that? What are you going to do about it?

The additional baggage
Are you divorced with two kids? Does your partner have a past that has its own baggage? The problems of dating someone way older always means there’s an additional baggage involved in some form or the other. Can either of you deal with that?

Family planning
Do both of you have the same interests and wants out of life. A decade can make a big difference in the way a person sees life and creates expectations out of it. Do you want kids? Is your partner uninterested in having kids? These may seem like little nagging details now, but very soon, you’ll see that these kinds of details that involve wants and interests actually define your life and who you are.

Growing old together
Can you cope with the difference as both of you grow older? Would you be frustrated because of the different energy levels? If you’re 33 and your partner’s 48 years old, it may seem like nothing. But when you’re going to be 48 years old, your partner would be in retirement. Ever gave that a thought? 

Does the age difference bother you?
Have you been pondering over the age difference and what other people and friends may think? Does it bother you that the ignorant staff in the supermarket thought you’re a parent and child, and not a romantic couple?
The age difference in the relationship would matter only if it matters to you. You’d be bothered by it only if it bothers you deep inside. If you’re uncomfortable dating someone who’s outside your age group, then don’t date the person. It’s not worth the trouble. At the end of the day, you need to be comfortable in your partner’s arms, whether you’re at home or at a party. If glances and conversations of other people bother you, could you ever just be happy?

How much can you sacrifice for love?
Relationships need work, whether they have an age difference or otherwise. And it’s in your own hands to make something work. Relationships involve a few sacrifices on both sides.
You now know what it takes to make a relationship with an age difference work. So how much can you really sacrifice for love and where do you intend to draw the line?

At the end of the day, age difference in relationships is all in the head. If you can’t learn to overcome your doubts, it’s better to stay out of it.

The 25 Sweetest Romantic Gestures for Everyday Life

man tie shoe shoes for a woman girl Sweetest Romantic Gestures for Everyday Life

 Sometimes, all you need are sweet romantic gestures every now and then to let your sweetheart know there’s still a lot of love floating in the air.

A great relationship doesn’t need expensive shows of affection all the time.
What matters more are sweet romantic gestures that can make your lover go awww…
Sometimes, a sweet gesture can make your partner’s day, even if it’s done in the smallest way.
It doesn’t matter if you’re the husband, the wife or even a boyfriend or girlfriend to use these tips.
What matters is that you care enough to create little ways to remind your lover that you’re still madly in love with them.
Here are 25 sweet romantic gestures and date ideas for everyday life that you can use, and let your mate know that there’s still a lot of love floating everywhere.

Sweet romantic gestures for everyday life
Love never asks for expensive gifts.
You may have heard that before, but it’s something you must never forget.
After all, love is in the air only if it’s in the details. No one cares about the big picture.
Read these romantic gestures and use them when you’re with your partner, and love will find a cozy spot to settle in both your hearts.

#1 Clasp hands when you’re crossing a street or walking through a crowd. Wrap your arms around your lover when you’re standing close to each other, and don’t keep more than a feet’s distance between each other unless you have no choice!

#2 Write little love notes and slip it into your lover’s pocket even if it’s just a little ‘I love you’. These notes don’t have to be elaborate. Even a little lipstick mark on a piece of paper will bring the same smile!

#3 Record a love message on your partner’s phone. Set an alarm for a time when you’re not around them with a message saying “check your recorder app/voice recorder”.

#4 Surprise your partner by taking her out to a nearby favorite picnic spot late in the night while she’s still in her night suit. Spread a blanket on the ground and have an impromptu getaway with champagne and strawberries. Or plan a surprise weekend getaway to a nearby place.

#5 Sit on his lap and behave like a mischievous minx when both of you are relaxing at home. Don’t let your woman walk around the house for a few hours. Carry her around the house no matter where she wants to go. 

#6 Help your partner prepare dinner and clean the dishes. Think of something innovative to do while you’re at it, like cooking while wearing nothing but aprons or a little food fight.

#7 Fill the tub with hot water when your partner returns from a business trip or a long day at work. Get in together and give your partner a backrub and a massage. Get naughty if the mood feels right.

#8 Look into your partner’s eyes and say “I love you”. Say it like you mean it without trying to be funny or sounding corny.

#9 Spend time with your partner now and then when they’re enjoying their favorite hobby, even if it’s something that doesn’t interest you much.

#10 Dedicate a song and sing it out in a karaoke bar for your partner. A few glasses of booze can give you the courage you need. But if you’re too shy for that, sing it over the phone.

#11 Plan a flash mob dance along with friends on your partner’s special day.

#12 Whisper a message in your partner’s voicemail and say something naughty in the middle of the day.

#13 Give your partner a foot massage when both of you are relaxing on the couch. Hold your partner’s hand and waltz while humming your lover’s favorite tune. Look for little ways to bring a smile on your lover’s face.

#14 Stop on your way back home and pick up your partner’s favorite dessert for a late night treat.

#15 If your partner isn’t enjoying their food at a restaurant, switch plates and give them your better dish.

#16 Slip into bed naked and surprise your partner with your impromptu nudity. Tie a little ribbon around your waist or any strategic locations if you want to be their gift for the night.

#17 Take a picture of yourself wearing your partner’s clothes and sext it to “the best partner in the world!”

#18 Give him a shave when he’s lazy. Help her brush her hair when she’s in a hurry.

#19 Give each other inexpensive well wrapped gifts every now and then. It could be chocolates, flowers, a game CD, or even a potted plant. 

#20 On the days that you forget to kiss your wife goodbye, drive back home and give her an intimate kiss and a bear hug *unless you’re in a hurry*. Or come back home now and then just to kiss your wife *because you missed her already!*

#21 Bring breakfast in bed with your sweetheart’s favorite breakfast menu. Try your best to prepare them yourself. And don’t forget the flowers!

#22 Perform an erotic dance. Even better if you have two left feet which leaves your partner in splits.

#23 Be your partner’s maid for a day. Treat your partner like royalty for a day or even a few hours if your partner doesn’t allow you to play the maid for an entire day. You can even wear a French maid’s dress!

#24 Watch a romantic movie together once a month and order all the rich takeout food you’ve been craving for the entire month. Switch off your phones, cuddle up for the evening and don’t move out of each other’s sight.

#25 Give each other a happy ending massage!
