Getting Back to the Basics of Love and Romance

Updated: Aug 19


Almost every love story has the potential to begin as if it were a fairy tale. Once upon a time, two people fell passionately in love, and their love was unlike any others before theirs. Relationship beginnings are lovely; they can experience a rebirth with a wedding, honeymoon, and the exciting first year of marriage. Once a couple begins to grow and their lives change with jobs, children, social activities, and other commitments, love and romance become more challenging to attend to. Sometimes love and romance seems to be lost altogether. This destiny is not unavoidable if you want to rekindle the passion or bring it to a new level by becoming a hopeless romantic.


When you want to ignite the passion in your relationship but aren’t sure what you need to do, the best place to begin is at the beginning. Think about what you used to do for your partner at the beginning of your relationship. Don’t worry if you don’t remember or have never tried to be a true romantic, don’t worry. It’s not complicated, and once you begin, you will find that you will get your new ideas after a while.


Most new relationships or beginnings rely on the little things to show love and affection. Be sure to remember special couple days like Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries, and even the date you met if possible. Be sure to send a meaningful gift or just a dozen roses and a box of chocolates to celebrate your feelings for your partner. Women can do the same thing for men here. Not many men can resist candy!

You may not consider yourself a writer, but writing your partner a long love letter with your thoughts about how you feel for the other person is one of the most touching ways to spark romance. If you aren’t comfortable writing a letter, consider making lists of what you love the most about your partner. Lists can be about the things they do that make you laugh, what they do for you that you appreciate, how they make you feel inside, how beautiful or handsome they are, and other very personal but attentive details.


Sometimes couples feel more comfortable trying to bring romance into their relationship by bestowing gifts on their partner. While classics like flowers, candy, perfume, or cologne are almost always successful gifts, try giving something different. Make plans to see every romantic movie at the theater during the year. Bring home a bottle of champagne to celebrate even their tiniest accomplishment. Randomly send romantic and/or humorous greeting cards to their workplace or hide them under the bed pillows at home.


These suggestions are ideas to get you started in your effort to bring romance and love to a new level in your marriage. You may have your ideas, which are probably better than anything offered here. Once you open the door to romance in your marriage and build a foundation for future romance, you are ready to move to even more creative levels of romance.
