Here are a few steps to creating a truly rich relationship.
1. Express your feelings in writing
You don’t have to be a professional writer to craft a truly meaningful love note. There simply is no such thing as a poorly written love note. But if you need help, here are some suggestions.
Write a love letter that tells your loved one just how much they mean to you. But don’t just write to write, take a few moments to put your heart and soul into it. Dig down and convey what you’re truly feeling. If you lost the person you love (and this could be anyone, not just a significant other), what would you wish you’d told them?
Don’t wait until it’s too late.
2. Make a home-cooked meal.
It can be as simple or as elegant as you’d like. Make it special with a cozy table setting, candles, and music. If you don’t cook, then plan a simple picnic in front of the fireplace. Or maybe you could snuggle up on the couch and watch a movie. Turn down the lights, pour two glasses of wine, and settle in for a relaxing evening.
Finally, it’s the perfect time to give your sweetheart the love letter you wrote. Better yet, read it aloud to them!
3. Dream about the future together.
Nothing strengthens a relationship more than having a dream you work on together as a team. Talk about your dreams together, and spend your evening planning your future.
Maybe your dream is to take an exotic trip. Visit one of the popular travel web sites to research destinations and costs, and have some fun planning it together. Or maybe you want to start saving to buy your first home. Sit down at the computer together and go on a few virtual home tours. Envision the kind of house you see yourselves in. Finally, if a vacation home is your future, use the Internet to find that perfect island getaway that you hope to someday own.
Work together to save for your dreams and you’ll find that they soon become a reality.
