Phil and I were talking about romance this morning and he said, “I just say I love you about once a week, so I guess I’m not very romantic.” This from one of the most romantic men you could ever meet!

Everyone imagines different things when they think of what is romantic. There are all the concepts sold to us by mass media that represent romance. There are our childhood memories and learned ideas which shape how we define it. Men and women often interpret the definition differently. All this is true.

And it is also true that we all feel good when we know we are seen, heard and appreciated. And this is where personal romance comes in. Click here to read the whole article.

10 Keys to a Successful Romantic Relationship "According to psychologists Nathaniel Branden and Robert Sternberg, who have both researched and written about the challenges of romantic relationships, these little displays of interest and affection can be more important than all the 'active listening' and trust games in the world."

KEEPING THE ROMANCE ALIVE "Giving each other a daily dose of what I call the 3 A’s—attention, appreciation and affection—are the critical factors in keeping any relationship alive with interest and desire."

Keeping the Romance Alive "Intimate time together, honest communication and thoughtful acts of loving kindness are the fuel of great relationships. So, if you want to replace your fizzle with some sizzle, you'll both need to move your priorities around, start talking more, and make a mutual commitment to keeping the romance thriving."
