Every Day’s a Good Day for Ice Cream
I’ve talked about it before, the trouble we all have in trying to find enough time to be romantic. Life’s demands in our hectic, high-paced world make that a real challenge. For some couples, whose work schedules don’t coincide, it’s even worse; having a moment to say “Hi, I love you” and share a kiss can tax their time management abilities.
We’ve all got to learn to take advantage of the opportunities that present themselves to us. Remember, romance isn’t about the big, $300.00 date; it’s about the little things. While you can say “you’re important to me” with that expensive date, you can also send the same message in just a few minutes, and for just a few dollars. The key is always about getting your message across to your wife.
Women have a different way of keeping score than we do as guys. We see things as big things and little things; of course, the big things are worth more points. On the other hand, women just see them as romantic things; not big romantic things or small romantic things, just romantic things. As such, each one is worth one point.
Since you’re working on being romantic to her, it really makes sense to use her point system. In other words, don’t worry about coming up with big romantic acts you can do, work on coming up with lots of romantic acts you can do. A whole bunch of little things are worth more points.
Okay, so, one of the great “little dates” you can do with your wife, in those infrequent times when you both have a few minutes free, is to go to your local ice cream parlor. This may not be the best idea if she just started a new diet, but any other time works great. There’s something about sitting there eating ice cream together than brings out the teenager inside of us. We can easily slip back into bring youngsters in love; and isn’t that what it’s all about?
