Okay, we KNOW what you’re thinking! You’ve taken one look at the title and you think this is one of those smarmy articles magazines spew at you ever so often. Romance your wife with flowers, chocolates, take her out on a date yada yada yada… Hey, don’t you know us better by now? We’re all about the fun and the funky here, we’d never give you that boring tripe 😉 But we do have romance on our minds coz its Karva Chauth today, the day to honour the love and commitment between you and your lady love.
What better way to celebrate your beautiful bond than by committing to amplify the romance in your relationship? Because lets face it, when you’ve been together a while, its easy to get jaded. There are a gazillion thing to take care of in all our turbo charged lives and romance is typically the first thing to fall by the wayside, no? NO! We’re here to change all that with our 21 Day Challenge to Romance Your Wife (just call us the Love Gurus, guys 😉 )! Think you’re up for it? Read on!
Step 1: Set up a meeting
Yes we’re still talking about you and your wife, we’re not going all heavy duty office on you here! Confused? Don’t be! Just set aside fifteen minutes every day, whatever time works for you, to sit down with your wife and talk. Ask her how her day was, what’s new, what was the best thing that happened to her all day. Focus on the conversation and on really listening to her. Just fifteen minutes everyday. So go on and schedule your meeting!
Step 2: Go tech free
Ok, this one is a toughie. Remember that fifteen minute meeting we told you about just now? Well, in case you were thinking you could talk to your wife while texting your boss, checking all the latest goss on your FB account with the TV droning on in the background…NADA. You gotta switch all of that OFF. Make it a totally tech free zone, and once you’ve gotten used to all of the peace and quiet, go sit with your wife. And leave your phone behind!
Step 3: Focus
That razor sharp focus you are renowned for at work? Your wife needs some of that too! No, that doesn’t mean you start giving her appraisals, we just need you to focus on her and ONLY her for the fifteen minutes you’re going to be spending together. So if you have kids, maids, pets and any other unidentified objects floating around the house, capable of distracting you, make sure they’re all out of the way. Also, tell your wife about your meeting well in advance so she’s free too. Hey, its only fifteen minutes– you CAN do it!
Step 4: Keep it a conflict free zone
Um, yeah, so just in case you were planning on telling her how you hated last night’s dinner, so could she please just fire that cook already; or how you think the kids really could do with some extra Math coaching…sorry! This is NOT the time and place for that. Yeah, we did say you were to set aside fifteen minutes to talk with your wife but we did NOT mean all the usual nitty gritties. Quick- read post title! Remember the woman you feel in love with? These fifteen minutes are to romance your wife and fall in love with her all over again. Which means you laugh and smile, stay positive and talk about fun, interesting stuff. Um, also run this past your wife, ok? So she doesn’t bring up how you really need to hit the gym (ouch!).
Step 5: Seal it with a kiss
Okay, this is the fun part At the end of your 15 minutes, reach out and hug your wife, look deep into her eyes (for heaven’s sake STOP thinking about the missed calls on your phone), smile and tell her that you love her. Sounds too corny to believe? Just trust us and do it! It will be totally worth it when you see the look in her eyes.
Okay, so that’s it. Easy right? And we did not bring up flowers or candles or chocolates even once and you don’t even have to step out of your house (though it might be a good idea to do just that once in a while!).
