Example text

Do not let money stand in the way of you and your loved one having a wonderful time, at least once a month. If that means taking your laptop onto the back porch and playing songs from the last concert you both enjoyed so much over a couple of beers or homemade lattes, so be it. At least you are together, and you are reintroducing some of your most splendid memories to your current life. Set Realistic Goals The grand reality of life is that not everything can happen all of the time. If you set realistic goals and opportunities for the two of you to share time together, you have to understand that at some point, something is going to get in the way.

Think of it this way. How many times have you asked your beloved to pick up their clothes? How many times have they asked you to put gas in the car? How many times have you or your partner neglected to call the other when running later, even when the request has been made over and over again? Why are both of you perpetuating bad habits, when you know that the other one is unhappy with their existence? Do you just not care? Are you punishing him or her? Does it get you anywhere? It is unlikely that any bad habits that are shared in a relationship leads to results.

Dates should be an opportunity to rendezvous with your loved one, not a place where you spend the entire time complaining about work, politics or family. It is the perfect time to release yourself from all the stressors around you, and simply fall in love with the person sitting across from you again. Open yourself up to the positivity that falling in love again provides. You are happier, healthier and even the people around you will notice a certain pep in your step that accompanies a return from lunch with your love.
