Wasn’t put there to stay -

Romantic Ways To Spend Time Together

Being spontaneous can be an exciting way to say I Love You when you're together. Going somewhere different, exploring new places - just being together and concentrating on each other. Here a just a few suggestions to help make your time together special.

  • Go for long walks together
  • Lie on the floor together in front of a roaring fire.
  • Just sit and hold each other
  • Sing together
  • Make a date for lunch
  • Share a juicy red apple
  • Do something silly and just be you
  • Hold hands in public
  • Share breakfast in bed
  • Go on a picnic
  • Take a bicycle ride
  • Visit a spa and treat yourselves to a "couple massage"
  • Watch the moon (sky) together and gaze at the stars
  • Go on a date frequently
  • Staying two separate people enriches you both, and makes your sharing all the more meaningful. At the same time, sharing time, intimacy, spaces, money and more, keeps marriages and relationships strong.

Above all - when you are with him/her be there fully. Allow your heart, mind and body to focus on your partner. Be a good, dedicated listener. Avoid "self-hogging" at all cost. It's not just about you during this time together.

We live in a continuous fear of being hurt. We dig up the past. This does nothing for relationships. It only creates unwanted and un-needed drama.

Fear is full of conditions but love is unconditional. Fear is unkind but love is always kind.

Starting now, let every action, every reaction, every thought and every emotion be based on love.

Love Quotes

There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.
~ Mother Teresa

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

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived, are the moments when you have done things in a spirit of love.
~ Henry Drummond

All love that has not friendship for its base,
is like a mansion built upon the sand.
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

The only gift is a portion of thyself.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

The best portion of a good man's life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acts,
Of kindness and of love.
~ William Wordsworth

Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be.
~ Robert Browning

Find the person who will love you because of your differences and
not in spite of them and you have found a lover for life.
~ Leo Buscaglia

Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.
~ Lao Tzu

Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to give it away.
~ Elbert Hubbard

How often do you tell him/her "I love you."

  • More than once a day
  • Just once a day
  • Once a week
  • Once a month
  • Never (he/she knows I do.)

I agree with cm...this is a beautiful hub. So many ways to say "I love you"...it is easier for me to express myself in written words and so I write my love a poem when I want to share my deep feelings for him. I sometimes need a little help to verbalize it (even though most people assume that it is usually men who suffer from this.) Thanks for good ideas!

This is so true! Sometimes people think that saying i love you is the only way of letting the people they love of their affection. What we tend to disregard is the fact that love becomes more meaningful and sincere when shown in actions.

It's been too long since I stopped by to see you dear friend. Loved this hub! One thing I would add to the listening is that sometimes we think we hear what each other is saying but we don't hear their heart. Pray you had a blessed Christmas with your son and grandchildren and that you are overwhelmed by God's goodness and love in the new year. Love and hugs.

Thank you for covering guys, too...most women don't realize that a romantic man loves to be romanced just as well. Give me a poem and I turned to puddy. Write me a note on the mirror and I will melt. Give me some space to focus on writing...I'm home.

vocalcoach 5 years ago from Nashville Tn. Author

Don't get me wrong...I'll find colored gift-wrapping paper and twist it into a rose for my love in a heart beat! Still, a romantic heart needs just as much romance, as the romance it gives and I appreciate your approach to showing that needed balance so very well! Thank you again.

Oh, Vocal Coach. I've been sidetracked for a while but I'm bookmarking this one. So full of practical ideas and so meaningful for anyone who truly loves another and wants to remind him (or her) of how important they are to us. I've been thinking about unconditional love for a while - such a gift. If we can GIVE it, as well as receive it when it's available, we are blessed indeed. How fortunate we are for God's love - how silly not to share it. A lovely piece. Many thanks.

Audrey, this is a beautiful hub filled with a great list of ideas to keep the love fresh. I read the comments and the friend who mentioned 'listening to the heart' made a valid point. It's easy to get into a routine and take each other for granted. Far better we reflect on what makes the love of our life unique and special to us...then, tell him or her. Unfortunately, people don't always do this.

Thanks for reminding us here of this importance. I LOVED the quotes. My husband used to quote the browning one to me often. Happy New Year to you.


Shadesbreath profile image

Shadesbreath 5 years ago from California

This is a sweet hub with lots of good advice. I think some of your tips, the little things like writing "I love you" on a steamy mirror and "making her dinner" ... the acts that give of yourself rather than money, are the best. They are free, and yet, so, so valuable because they mean that someone was thinking of us enough to act. Spending is too easy in our society, it's become empty of emotion, but to act, to be DRIVEN to act, that means something, even when just a little heart on a post-it note, stuck to the steering wheel of their car.

Thanks for a delightful reminder that everyone could stand reading once or twice a year.

These are some really great ideas on how to keep saying I love you to that special person in your life. It reminded me of something I had read recently but honestly your ideas are really inspirational. They may not work for everybody, but they at least can get the brain working! Great hub!


SilverGenes 4 years ago

This is a beautiful hub! The world could do with more love right now and I love the ideas you present here. This really stood out for me: "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." I'm listening to a radio show from Melbourne, Australia right now about that very thing. Apparently, it's on the rise enough in relationships that it warrants a show of its own! Yikes! Thank you for an incredible hub - voted UP!

My spouse and do many of these things on both your lists. After 6 years of marriage, I agree sometimes you have to small gestures to show that you still love each other and the simple words, "I love you" do go a long way, but still these actions and gestures do help in getting your message across. Thanks and am voting and sharing as well.

vocalcoach,

This is excellent! You obviously struck a chord with hundreds of people, but love is the universal language isn't it? Love is the only thing that has the ability to lift us up to the highest level or lower us down further than anything else could. Everyone wants love, finding it isn't so hard; it's keeping it that's the challenge. You had so many beautiful, simple, romantic ways of loving, I truly enjoyed this. I can only assume that you've either had tremendous love last or learned from tremendous love that has failed, maybe a combination of the both, whatever the the case, it is the perfect advice! I loved it!

Cat

Cantuhearmescream - "Finding love isn't so hard; it's keeping it that's the challenge." Those are your words Cat and so much wisdom rings true here.

Thank you for adding this in your comments. And yes, I've experienced a combination of both beautiful, romantic love and tremendous love that has failed. Hopefully by now I've learned from my mistakes because I've made plenty of them in my life. :) Thank you so much my friend!

Herb Hopkins profile image

Herb Hopkins 3 years ago from Clayton Alabama

Great piece. Loved all the suggestions. Having been married for over 34 years and still madly in love, I can attest to the fact that "saying" I Love You is so important. And "saying" I Love You can be "said" in a multitude of ways as you wrote. People today think "Oh he (she) knows I Love her!! And that is probably correct, but hearing, or seeing it (as in a note or an expression of love) keeps the home fires burning. Couples that "stay" into each other, can not drift apart...


vocalcoach profile image

vocalcoach 3 years ago from Nashville Tn. Author

Herb Hopkins - You, too should write a hub about this topic :) Love your comments. And I've noticed too how people today take "I love You' for granted.

Congratulations on over 34 years with your sweetheart - that's so awesome!

I love all your suggestions here and have used quite a few on my dear hubby. I would love it if he just cleaned the kitchen once in awhile. For me, I don't do the warm bath towels but I do throw his comforter in the dryer and hand it to him on a chilly day. He loves it. It's the simple things that make love strong.

vocalcoach 2 years ago from Nashville Tn. Author

teaches12345 - You are a great wife and woman to go the extra mile showing love the way you do. I like your idea of warming the comforter in the dryer and handing it to your husband on a chilly day.

The simple things do really count and give strength to love. A good point. Thank you Dianna.
