What is Romance?

Romance can enhance a relationship

Romance is a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love. That’s one definition I found and I feel that is accurate, but romance can be subjective. Romance is the feeling between two people, an energy that fills the room, makes us weak in the knees, and gives us a desire to connect. When we are young most of us are taught about romance from the media, music, movies, TV shows, plays, books, etc. Those ideas are often so big, it’s hard to keep up. Then if we were lucky enough to have experienced romance in our homes through seeing family members or others showing romantic gestures and saying loving words, we have some idea or real romance.

We have witnessed the feelings that romance can bring to people. Smiles and joy. It can be quite magical.

So I ask you, do you believe in romance, have you experienced the high sensations being romantic can bring you or someone else. If you are like me then you believe there is a lack of true romance, not fantasy romance but true romance. Now I am not knocking the fantasy idea of romance but it should be used to inspire but not the sole idea of what romance should look like.

I am here to encourage men and women to look at romance in more of an individualistic way. Look at the person you want to romance, their personality, their habits, their dreams, and lifestyle.

Being romantic doesn’t have to be a difficult undertaking, it can be small gestures that are practiced daily with your lover or friend.

Romance can also be self fulfilling, there is something magical in grabbing a great romantic novel, a bubble bath, candles, and a some fun. Self pleasure is also a part of romance, learn to romance ourselves and we will be better at romancing others.

Date Night Ideas

10 Romantic Date Night Ideas

Date nights are essential to a couples romantic life, they are a chance for two people to really just focus on each other.  If you aren’t doing date nights then you are seriously missing out. I recommend at least 1 date night a week. As long as it’s consistent. Some of these ideas are better for getting to someone new and some are great for long term couples. These are not in any order.

1. The classic dinner and a movie but here is an idea to shake it up. Make dinner together at home then watch some “late night” tv.

2. Have a lunch picnic in the park. Make a few sandwiches, grab a bottle of wine, and take a blanket to the grass. Listen to music, talk, and enjoy.

3. Go star gazing at a planetarium or field. Star gazing is so romantic, you can just lie back, cuddle and gaze at the stars while holding each other close.

4. Go bowling, a little friendly competition can be intimate, just don’t forget to flirt.

5. Become an artist and paint each other in the nude. This reminds me of course of the movie “Titanic” it’s sexy and creative.

6. Call in sick and stay in bed. Spending a day relaxing, showering, eating, napping, and other things together can be very romantic.

7. Take a drive. Play some tunes and enjoy the ride together, drive up a coast, or find a special spot with a great view.

8. Dress up nicely and go out dancing. Dancing is such a hot way to get close. Not ready to hit the clubs, try a dance class. Enjoy getting close and personal, it’s awesome for play.

9. Similar to the painting idea, how about at home photo shoot, dress up sexy lingerie or nude, whichever you two fancy and embrace your sensual side.

10. Find a new restaurant to try that neither one of you has been too, have a meal and flirt.


romance and candles

Using Candles

Candlelight and It’s Amazingness

Ok, here it goes, I am addicted to candlelight. I use it for atmosphere, the scent and the feel. Candlelight is perfect for setting the mood of a room for either relaxing or for romance and intimacy. Today, let’s talk about using candles for romance and intimacy.

Here are my top 4 reasons for using candles to set the mood.

*Please be careful using candles, they are fire.

1. Candlelight is a perfect blend of light and dark. Romance in a bright room can be fun sometimes but other times romance is best served in a beautifully candlelit room. It can accentuate the body and skin. Leaving areas of you glowing. Which I think enhances an experience.

2. The scent from candles can be magic, if you enjoy an aroma outside of the normal house smell your accustomed too, then candles are much better for the air then those spray deodorizers, stay away from those! Candles can burn over a long period of time and keep the wonderful smells going. Also, certain scents can arouse, check out Rose or Jasmine.

3. They are inexpensive romantic touches. I am telling you can buy 4 big candles for under 5 dollars and it can set the mood like no other.

4. The variety is endless. I’m not a candle collector but there are so just so many amazing scents, colors, and shapes of candles, you can find a candle for any “occasion”.

*Tip: If you want to try the lots of candles in a room say 20 or more I definitely suggest using tealight candles, they are small and don’t burn for too long and are contained. Also, make sure to use precautions when setting up candles, you know the whole fire hazard thing.

For even more of a romantic touch, add a few rose petals to the mix.
