Romance Fading? Commit to a Date a Month

A Common Problem

Romance Fading? It’s a common problem. You’re busy, really busy. After you get done with all of the ‘adulting’ you do every day, you’ve barely got enough energy to hit the remote on the TV, let alone get dressed up for a date with your Love.

The Result of That Problem

The romance in your relationship gradually fades out and you’re both left wondering what the heck happened.

The Solution

Save the Date!

This post goes out to all of those couples that are in a long-term relationship, or even considering a long-term relationship.

In the Beginning – Puppy Love

Man! Remember how you felt at the beginning of your relationship when you first started dating?   You were totally connected, craving to learn more about your partner and bonding over the new things and new places you were experiencing together.   You tended to forget the rest of the world when you were together, like it was just the two of you and intimacy was just a natural outcome of the closeness you felt.  Man!  Wasn’t that great?   Do you still feel like that now?  No? Or maybe sometimes, but feel like it’s slipping?  So, what happened?

The Roommate Syndrome

If you’re like the majority of the rest of the couples, you simply got caught up.  Caught up in the daily routines of life; work, kids, soccer practice, chores, errands and projects and you honestly can’t even remember how either of you had the time or energy to go on dates back then.  I call it the “busyness trap.”   One of my clients said that after 17 years of marriage, he feels like he and his partner are more like roommates than lovers.   But it doesn’t have to be that way.

If someone told you they had a magic potion that could give you at least a version of those initial feelings back again, how much would you pay for it?  $100? $500? $1000?

Well, I have good news for you, my friend.  It’s more like a formula than a portion, but it does exist and the best part is – it’s absolutely free!

The Gift Men Really Want

Surprising Survey Results – #1 Gift Men Really Want

You might be surprised to learn what the Dating Divas.com concluded was the #1 gift men really want.   They asked hundreds of their male customers what they really wanted as a gift for Valentine’s Day.  As a man, I believe it’s the same answer for any major gift-giving holiday; Father’s Day, Anniversaries, the Holidays and even Birthdays.  And no – It’s not what you’re thinking!

In their article, they broke it down to the Top 3 gifts men wanted and found that:

The #1 thing men wanted most as a gift was Quality Time with their partner.

The men’s comments further explained that they really appreciate when their partner put some thought into planning their time together.  Less surprising, of course, was #2, which was Intimacy and #3 was Food.   Well, we are men after all! Continue reading “The Surprising #1 Gift Men Really Want”

How to Plan the Perfect Mystery Date

This past weekend, my wife and I had an incredible evening on our first Mystery Date, which was March’s Date Idea on our Love Calendar.  I must admit, with so many fun ideas to choose from, choosing a Date Idea was initially a bit of a daunting task!

The Plan

What I finally landed on was a nice dinner out at a place she’d told me about, but I’d never been.  To keep the mystery going, I decided to add a second surprise for after dinner. Continue reading “How to Plan the Perfect Mystery Date”

Help us keep the romance alive for couples everywhere!

Wouldn’t it feel good to know you played a part in helping keep the romance alive for couples everywhere in the world?

Did you know its been proven that consistent dating is the key to a successful relationship?

I’m Adam and for over 20 years, I’ve had this idea of creating a calendar to help couples stay focused on the romantic side of their relationship amidst all of the busyness of their daily lives.   That dream has finally come true!

That’s why we’ve built this company at www.CreativeCommitments.com that’s full of over 150 beautiful images of unique date ideas for people to make a date-a-month calendar to give to the one they love.  We call it the Love Calendar!

Why a calendar?  It’s simple! Calendars are the one thing that everyone uses on a regular basis throughout the year.  It creates a visual reminder, that people can put on their refrigerator or wherever is central in their lives, to keep their monthly date, and each other, in focus.

 If you agree, please help me get the word out by liking and sharing this post to your Facebook page, Pinterest boards and other social media sites!  Together we can help keep love alive in the world!

Why Planning in Advance is a Key to Romance

If you’d consider yourself a busy person, let me know if you can relate to this:  

Have you ever found yourself getting so caught up in the urgent tasks and busyness of each day that you’ve lost focus on the less urgent things that are also super important in your life?  Like taking your sweetie on a romantic date perhaps? Or scheduling that preventative exam at the doctor’s?

Most of us have fallen into this “busyness trap” more than once. We become so busy putting out our fires, that we don’t have much time for anything else.  The biggest rub of all is that if we don’t make time for these less urgent things that are super important, they can create even more fires in our lives.  Like creating relationship problems or exacerbating health problems.

These things feel less urgent because they’re more flexible in timing.  However, delaying them is a slippery slope since we almost always have other things that seem more urgent to do and they’re just too important to lose focus on.

The international best seller, the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, which has sold more than 25 million copies in 40 languages, recommends scheduling the most important things in your life first in each of your life’s roles, then scheduling everything else around them.   Covey calls it “putting first things first.”

We can’t help you with that preventative exam, but we can certainly help with planning a date a month in advance for the whole year to keep the romance alive!   That’s why the Love Calendar is the perfect gift because it keeps what’s most important in focus all year long!

One customer said it’s like a “Post It” note for your relationship!  It’s a great visual reminder, that you can put on your refrigerator or wherever is central in your life, to keep it front-of-mind and help put the priority around the two of you.

And yes, it’s also a calendar, which will help you schedule this most important date each month at a time that’s convenient for both of you!
