We want you and your man to achieve lifelong relationship success and satisfaction.
What’s All the Fuss About?
- Connection – A bond between two people in a relationship. When nurtured, that connection has the power to help a partnership grow stronger. Over time it will and contribute to an amazing sex life.
- Emotional and physical relationships – Work on these connections continuously.
- Intimacy – You need both physical and emotional intimacy for overall relationship happiness.
- Show You Care – Connecting, using even the smallest of gestures, will go a long way to showing how much you care. Texting each other during your work day, taking over making dinner or doing the dishes, speaking kindly, easing your partner’s hard day by bringing him or her a glass of wine in bed, etc.
Eat Breakfast Together
- Focus on romance first thing in the morning. Build a connection that lasts all day. Having breakfast in bed or at the dining table. Start a great solid daily ritual.
- Bring out your spouse’s favorite foods, and enjoy making breakfast together once a week as a bonding exercise.
- Are you in the habit of watching TV while you eat breakfast? Commit to turning it off during this sacred time. Connecting and focusing on each other is more important.
Hold Hands More
- Focus on the touch – Holding hands is the easiest way to increase the frequency in which you touch. Hold hands when you sit on the couch or when you have a discussion with each other.
- Kiss each other’s hands – Focus on making your partner feel good. Every time you hold hands, you’re strengthening your bond. Hold hands every chance you get.
Focus on Couples Time Daily
- Don’t miss out on opportunities to bond over each other’s day. Let your spouse have some time to unwind after getting home from work; then focus on each other.
- What was your partner’s day like, and what was yours like? Go over the highlights, and then give specifics. Detail what you have been up to during the day. You can’t form a strong connection if you leave out the specifics.
Turn Off the TV and Computer
- Give him your full attention.
- Make sure your devices do not get more attention than your partner.
- Make a list of electronic devices you use every day, and turn them off when your partner gets home. Turn on some soft music instead.
Check In Throughout Your Day
- Gone six-eight hours without speaking, texting or emailing your partner? That’s way too long!
- Fill in the gaps of time you’re not together, by contacting other friends. Text your man short, sweet messages. “Let’s meet during our lunch hour. Can’t wait to see you!” or “How’s your morning going? Hope you’re having a great day!”
