Let’s Talk with Nancy J Cohen

Creating Romance
Nancy J. Cohen

pubpinkValentine’s Day has always been special to me. It’s the day my husband and I got engaged. We’re still married forty years later. In my younger days, I enjoyed the card exchanges in elementary school. Red happens to be my favorite color second only to turquoise. I like the candy hearts with the sayings on them that you can buy this time of year. It’s a happy holiday, especially if you have a significant other. But even if not, you can celebrate with friends and family members. Or you can bring more romance into your own life. Here are some suggestions:

Read a romance novel.
Light candles around your house, in the bathroom, and at the dinner table.
Play your favorite mood music.
Dine out at a fine restaurant.
Pretend you’re a tourist and explore new places in your community.
Get away for the weekend.
Spend a day at the beach or lake.
Stroll through a park or botanical garden.
Stay at a bed & breakfast inn.
Attend a local fair or festival.
Buy yourself a sexy outfit.
Soak in a leisurely bubble bath.
Get a massage.
Pamper yourself at a day spa.
Have your hair cut and styled.
Get a manicure and pedicure.
Watch a romantic comedy on the Hallmark Channel or go see a romantic movie.
Indulge in chocolate.
Call an old friend or a relative you haven’t heard from in a while.
Use Aromatherapy via incense, candles, and scented oils.
Wear your favorite perfume or cologne.
Try something you’ve never done before that requires a spirit of adventure.
Take a class in a totally new subject.
Eat fondue with a friend.
Go out for drinks and appetizers.
Meet a friend for coffee and give her a little gift in appreciation of your friendship.
