How to Be Romantic Again
Being Romantic is About the Simple Things
It’s not always about the money you spend or the jewelry you buy. It’s about remembering the day you first laid eyes on her, the way she made you feel, and the way her eyes would light up when you wooed her.
The sweet gestures and the romantic quirks; somehow those get lost over time as the relationship develops into a comfort zone that can sometimes be unintentionally neglectful of each other’s feelings.
