Romance on a Budget
Romance isn’t about spending
money, it’s about spending time together, spending
energy and creativity to attract and keep the
relationship exciting and the love alive. - Heidi
Romance isn’t about how much money you lavish
on another. It’s about attracting the object of
your affection. Romance is about making dreams
and fantasies come true. Romance is defined as
“an exciting and mysterious quality; a relationship
between two lovers.” It is the “act of making
your partner feel loved.” Romance is more than
an act, it’s a state of being. It’s the heart,
the soul and the mind working together to create
an adventure, and increase enthusiasm for one
“Romance means intimacy and connection, which
means paying attention to detail. It’s making
her lunch or giving him a massage. It’s making
the bed together and cuddling. It’s holding hands
and leaving little “love notes” around the house.
It’s touching and feeling and listening and sharing.
It’s excitement and serenity, spontaneity and
planning. It’s telling the other person what you
want, and doing the things the other person likes.
It’s connecting deeply.
Romance is about timing, imagination, exploration
and creativity. Being Romantic is about…. being
creative, being willing to take a risk. Sometimes
it’s being sweet. Sometimes it’s being silly.
Romance is about … the right attitude. And attitude
can cost you a little or a lot. True romantics
have the right attitude; and use imagination to
cultivate loving, sensual relationships.
So just how do you develop the right attitude?
Start out with little acts of affection, little
things to show you care and can be romantic. Here
are a few suggestions (excerpted from the book,
Romance on a Budget) to help you spark your imagination.
- This Kiss (#10) – You must remember this; a
kiss is still a kiss… kiss often. Repeat several
- Look into My Eyes (#11) – When you gaze into
each others eyes, everyone else seems to disappear.
And looking intensely at one another can send
a message to your lover that can lead to other
- You Light up my Life (#15) - Spray the perfume
or cologne you wear on a light bulb. When the
light is turned on the scent of you will fill
- What a Feeling (#19) – Tell your love how much
you appreciate him/her. Write your message on
a post-it-note and stick it where it is sure to
- Get out of your Comfort Zone (Intro) – Do something
impulsive, even a little risky that will excite
your lover and ignite the romance.
Like the song says “Love Don’t come easy.” I believe
that “Romance Don’t Come Easy. “ But with a little
practice and planning, the results can be thrillllllllling….
