Man or woman, we all love to loved. We love to be appreciated, showered in praise, listened to, noticed. We love being recognized and worshiped in little and big ways, quiet and loud ones.
Here are some simple steps to gently coaxing those glowing coals of desire to full flame.
1. Slow down!
Take time to notice the little things that your love does every day. The things you love. Bring a rosy blush to her cheeks. Make him grin over an everyday job well-done. Noticing the little things in life with gratitude and devotion will lead to a BIG sense of love and joy.
2. Be present!
Listen deeply. Look intently. Touch intimately. These moments of full presence make up for the hours of busy-with-life that happen in the flow of everyday day.
3. Touch more!
There’s always time for a deep kiss and a full hug on the way out the door, or even passing one another in the kitchen. If there’s not enough time for touch, it’s surely time to examine priorities.
4. Write Love Notes!
Write love notes and leave them everywhere. Stick them in purses, eyeglass cases, briefcases. Put them under or on pillows, in pockets, post them on your love’s profile page!
5. Leave Trinkets and Tokens!
Like love notes, everywhere is the right place to put trinkets and momentos. Whether a deeply significant momento, a little gift that reminds you of your love, or your love’s favorite treat, a little gesture goes a long way.
6. Tell Your Love What You Love!
Tell her you love it when she holds your hand. Tell him you love it when he kisses you in a street corner. Tell her you love it when she wears that. Tell him you love it “…right…THERE!” Tell her you love it when she touches you “…like…that!”
These little steps will lead right to a raise in temperature that’s bound to spike, with no drop in sight.
