We have all experienced love in many forms with different people, animals, and even hobbies.  But what about romantic love?  Romance is defined by Webster as “A love affair.”  An emotional involvement takes place between two people and their time can be shared with one another in enthusiasm, mystery, pleasure and fascination.  If these feelings are formed and bonded between the two, a spiritual relationship may also unfold into a romantic relationship filled with even more love and meaning.
“People compose poetry, novels, sitcoms for love,” says Helen Fisher, anthropologist at Rutgers University. “They live for love, die for love, kill for love. It can be stronger than the drive to stay alive.”
Listed below are some of the key factors for a successful romantic relationship:
1.       Tell your partner you love them
2.       Be there for your partner
3.       Show affection and share yourself
4.       Give gifts to show you care
5.       Allow “alone time” for yourself
6.       Take no-thing for granted
What are some of the things you have done for others that affected them in a positive way?  Think about your strength as a person and how you can utilize your gifts to others.

“You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.”

To the beauty of romance,
