Hey Gents! When Was The Last Time You Brought Her Flowers?
March 8, 2012
So fellas, when was the last time you showed up at her work, or even home with fresh flowers, with no other reason than to show how much you think of her? It’s amazing how kind words, thoughtful manners and a little kindness can build the kind of longevity in a relationship that expensive gifts and lavish vacations never could.
There are other ways too, little things that add up over time, to become big things. Do you both brown bag it to work? What about slipping in a quick post-it that says, “I’m thinking about you.” Or a brief text mid-morning that says, “I love you, cant wait to see you.” At the beginning of a relationship, these romantic gestures are a no-brainer, but what about after a few years, or decades? If you want to keep the spark alive you have to fuel the fire. Do you hold the door open for her? This is not about women’s lib, or that women are not capable of opening their own door. Its about singling her out for courtesy and showing regard for the person you have chosen to make your life with.
Of course, courtesy, kindness and respect works both ways. If, and when things feel like they are getting stale, at least one party has to make the first move. Most often if one feels appreciated, it will soon enough reciprocated (though it may take time, so be patient) in way that both you and she realize that you want your relationship to not only grow, but thrive.
Tastes change over time and so do people, but by talking to each other and finding ways to enjoy each other, you show that your desire is to grow together. Want some other gift ideas? The more time you spend together, the more ideas for the perfect gift you will get right from the source.
