The act of flirting is still alive and well! Don’t ever stop doing it. If you’ve ever stopped, get back to it. It’s always a win-win for everybody, that’s sure to lead somewhere that you BOTH wanna go. Flirting is an art. To some, it comes naturally. Just make sure that you’re using it when and where it matters the most and of course, that is anytime, any place, and with your spouse!

1. It’s all about the eyes.

Make sure that you undress him with those eyes. You know, that quick up and down action. It’s not only for the guys. Ladies…give it a try! Softly bite your bottom lip too, while you’re at it, for good measure.

2. Grab him.

Playfully give him a tap and make it Rated G, when the kids are around, but kick it up a notch when no one’s around. Try it before he heads out to work in the morning.

3. Let him choose.

We know that as women we can make our own decisions, but why not let HIM in on the action every once in a while? Lay out a couple of bra and panty sets and request his help with the choice of the day? What better way to have him thinking about “his choice” all. day. long?

4. Talk softly.

We’re always talking and yelling loudly, especially when there’s chaos and kids around. Speak softly and draw him closer to you so that he can hear the soft words that you’re speaking. Just make sure that what you’re whispering is the start of something good, because you’ve got him right there!

5. Surprise him!

No, you don’t have to pop out of a cake, and yell surprise!! Just leave one of Victoria’s little secrets in a hiding spot that he’d least expect. Guaranteed to make him smile. NOTE: Please not in his briefcase! We want you to PLAY with fire, not get him FIRED! If you’re skeptical about planting this sweet little surprise, try just leaving a post-it note first, and see how that goes!

6. Feel sexy. Be sexy!

I’m sure at this point in your relationship, he’s shared what he finds most attractive about your body. Whether it’s putting on something hot and racy that plays up and accentuates your assets, or just wearing one of his over-sized t-shirts, make him look! Most of all, make him like what he sees!

7. Kiss him.

Sounds simple, right? Kiss him at a time that he’d least expect it. Catch him off guard and he’ll be sure to return the favor!

Keep the fun going. Keep the fire burning! Most of all, keep the love and affection in the forefront, and the rest will follow.

Valentine’s Day is over, and your plans went perfectly. You showered your spouse with kind words, gave gifts, and probably enjoyed a memorable evening or special date night. You both enjoyed it all, and felt all warm inside about your relationship. Now you can relax and get back to “normal.”

Hold up just a minute!  Isn’t that the “norm?”  Kind words, gifts, and great times together.  If not, maybe it should be.

Relationships are for a lifetime, not just a day

In our consumer and media driven society, there is a lot of hype leading up to holidays and big events, and when that day or event ends so does the hype. Our marriages and our relationships should be different.  Loving your spouse, giving them things that make them feel good, and creating memories together should begin before Valentine’s Day and continue after.

It just as easy to get lax, as it is to get caught up in the hype.  Many of us were very intentional in our planning and preparation for Valentine’s Day. It will take the same level of intention to do so when it ends. Below are a few ideas and ways you can keep showing love and being intentional in your relationship.

5 Ways To Keep the Love Going When Valentine’s Day is Over

  1. Extend Valentine’s Day. Buy Valentine’s Day items at discount the evening of or night after. Many times stores will begin to discount all the Valentine’s Day items, heart shaped things, and love themed items when the sales push is over. Grab up a bunch of stuff, and keep giving gifts the rest of the month.
  2. Plan regular dates like you did your Valentine’s date. Some of us get serious when it comes to planning a Valentine Day date, but the other dates throughout the year are just kind of run of the mill. Take as much time planning these dates, and make each date as special and memorable as you can.
  3. Be creative all the time. I don’t consider myself super creative, but I’ve done some creative things to show my wife I love her on Valentine’s Day, and I’ve heard some really creative ways that others have done so. Our creativity in showing our spouse’s how much we love them should be perfected throughout the year. Make creativity the norm.
  4. Buy “big” gifts on random days. I have seen and heard more commercials jewelry and “big ticket” gifts over the past few weeks than I have in a while. Marketers know this is the time many couples choose to make that big purchase.  I guess something about jewelry says love. Consider buying that bracelet, ring, or major gift at a completely unexpected time of the year.
  5. Speak love often, make it your language. I don’t doubt you say those 3 magic words, “I love you”, more than on Valentine’s Day, but continue to speak words of affirmation, to say encouraging and appreciate words to your spouse.  Learn what your spouse likes to hear you say, and say it, and make sure you mean it. That means there should be some action associated with the love you are speaking.
