Before you fell in love, did you ever think that there would be a person in this world who could make you feel so happy and complete? Did you ever realize that just making this person smile could bring so much happiness into your own life?
Love is a wonderful experience, because it’s the only emotion in the world that can bring you happiness when you give something away. It’s the happy feeling that fills within you when you make the effort to please someone else without prioritizing your own interests, and putting their interests before yours. Every time we feel an overwhelming surge of affection for our lovers, we want to do something special for them, just to let them know how much they mean to us and how much we care about them.
And as the months and years pass by in the relationship, you may start to take each other for granted, or start to believe that excessive shows of affection in love is just corny. But you need to change this now. Just because you’ve been in love for several years doesn’t mean you have to stop expressing your love through romantic gestures.
Remember, the more often you try to please your lover or show them just how much you care through your gestures, the happier you’ll feel. And the love for each other too, will bloom into a perfect romance that’ll fill both your lives with happiness and meaning.
Why do we need more romance in our lives?
The ones who don’t experience true love are almost always the ones who always put their own needs before the needs of their lover. The more selfish you are, and the more you ask what you can get in return for your effort before you do something for your lover, the smaller the odds of finding true blissful love.
Open your heart, and indulge in sweet romantic moments every now and then. Use these romantic ideas and awe your lover. And just when their lips spread into a happy smile as they look into your eyes, you’d realize your effort was all so worth it!
