I just wanted to give you a quick update, I'm still alive, but I'm moving this weekend, so I'll be offline for a while!
Go give your SO 3 reasons why you love him or her, then come back and tell me what they did (as long as it's appropriate...some things need to stay private, you know)!

Do you lie to your spouse?
The lady said she liked having her husband - and her neighbors think that she was perfect.
I just can't imagine that - of course I'd like to think that I was perfect, but I know I'm not.
I know that no one is - so there's no point in pretending.
I would be so mad if I was in the same situation - and then when I got over being mad, I would be so hurt that my husband felt that he had to lie to me in order to make me think he could keep the house clean.
My husband may not be the perfect housekeeper - but I think I'd rather have an imperfect housekeeper than have him lie to me.
Have you ever lied to your spouse or SO about something like that?
Leave a comment and tell me about it - how you felt, if they found out, how they reacted.

"Love cannot endure indifference. It needs to be wanted. Like a lamp, it needs to be fed out of the oil of another's heart, or its flame burns low." Henry Ward Beecher
Think about this statement for a few minutes.
"Love cannot endure indifference."
Are you being indifferent?
Are you actively trying to grow your relationship?
Do you still want love, or is your relationship just one more thing that's on the back burner, until you have time.
If you are being indifferent you need to make time for love today.
Quit putting your relationship on the back burner - feed it the oil from your heart today, so the flame won't grow low.

Make a Romance List
It's even harder when you don't know what your spouse thinks is romantic, or when your ideas of being romantic or different.
Just imagine how you would feel if you tried to do something that you thought was incredibly romantic for your spouse, and they weren't impressed.
If only you had a way to know exactly what your spouse considered romantic...
Well you can!
So make a list of things that you think would make you feel loved, cherished, and romanced, and ask your SO to make a list as well!
Ask your SO what they think is romantic, and ask them what you can do to keep the romance alive, and make your SO feel loved.
Your spouse might think a suprise fresh bouquet of flowers is the most romantic thing ever, or they might not.
Maybe your SO wants you to tell him/her that you love them more often.
Maybe you want your SO to touch you more, hold your hand out in public, or actually listen to you when you tell them about your day.
Although sitting down and making lists doesn't sound very romantic, once you have the list it will be so much easier for you to romance your spouse, without wondering whether your idea of romance and their idea of romance is the same.
So go ahead!
Make your list, and ask your spouse to make one as well.
And don't get to upset if they don't want to make the list at first, because that would defeat the purpose.

Listen to your spouse
I know it's cliche, but take the time to sit down, relax, and listen to what they have to say.
Don't worry about anything else, and don't think about what you are going to say next.
Calm down, slow down, relax, and enjoy being with your spouse.
Give your SO your full attention, and make him/her feel cherished.
