Toast wine glasses

Take every opportunity to toast each other.

Romance. Something almost anyone would like to have more of in their life. However, the fast pace of career, kids and life in general can mean that we sometimes (or all the time), let the romance side of our relationships slip. Here are some ideas for when you don’t have as much time as you would like for romance.

Write “I love you” on the bathroom mirror with a piece of soap.


Place a little love note or poem under the driver’s-side windshield wiper of his or her car.


Every once in a while, kiss her hand with a flourish. Note: The proper etiquette for kissing a woman’s hand is to lower your lips to her hand. You don’t raise her hand to your lips.


Have “your song” playing on the stereo when your partner returns home from work.


When out together in public, wink at your partner from across the room.


On your partner’s birthday, send a thank-you card to his/her mother.


Unplug the TV. Put a note on the screen saying, “Turn me on instead.”


Make a toast to one another every time you hold a wine glass. Make eye contact. Take turns making the toast. Whisper it.


Get the whole “family of products” in the fragrance of her favourite perfume (bath powder, soaps, creams, candles, etc.)


Call your partner from work for no other reason than to say, “I love you.”
