I'm a hopeless romantic. Grew up on Disney movies, Nicholas Spark Novels, etc. Now we all know none of those things happen and Prince Charming isn't a real Prince. However, I find myself craving some romance and spontaneity in my life. My husband used to be pretty good at being romantic, but it's dwindling. I'm trying to think of a nice way to let him know how much I miss this.
For instance, I have had family and friends over to our house and when they come they want to watch our wedding video. So, of course I am going to play it and watch it with them. This past weekend while watching the video with a friend of mine, my husband walked in and said, " You're watching this again?" in a semi-joking tone, and then left the room. Then he later made a comment during our first dance of, "You better be glad our ceremony ran late and we were behind schedule because I was supposed to sing this song to you during our dance." I was like that would have been wonderful! So, I'm not sure if our wedding video bothers him because there was so much more we had planned for our wedding than we actually got to do.....or what it is.
I try to do something romantic, spontaneous, etc for him at least once a month if not more. For instance, usually he cooks because I hate cooking. So I try to make it a point to cook dinner, fix his plate, and sit at the table to talk about anything he wants (usually hunting, fishing, etc.). Other times, I let him pick the movie, make the popcorn, pick up extra snacks and curl up on the couch to just enjoy a night in...(I have watched John Wick movies for the past 2 months....and never complain.)
He knows my Love Language is Quality Time, and I know his is Acts of Service. Any advice moving forward to help us rekindle the romance in our relationship?
