Since the book was released, I’ve made some giant leaps into the world of romance reading. (It’s all research, of course. I’m just doing my due diligence as a supposed author of the genre.) I moved from reading only paranormal romance, to holy-I-hope-that’s-not-normal romance (thank you, Fifty Shades), to wow-I-wish-that-were-normal romance via the Outlander series. After all this hard work, I’ve come to some conclusions. One, I don’t write romance. I dabble in romance while I’m writing other plotlines. Two, fictional romance has its own rules, and they are not found in your grandma’s guide to dating etiquette. But they do make for some spicy reading!
So many people treat love with regularity and call it เซ็กส์ทอย. They go out on a date every Friday. They buy their love a gift every Valentine’s Day. They have sex every Tuesday. Then they watch TV.
Fact . . . All those ‘share-your-agony / accomplish nothing’ websites where wives-in-misery commiserate by giving essentially worthless advice about what did not work for them will not help you encourage your husband to be more romantic.
Nobody has to struggle with everything on their own. In case you do not have enough time for romance in your life, you should consider getting some help with all the little things that prevent you from making enough time for you and your spouse. For instance, it is not a crime to hire a babysitter to stay with your kids, while you and your spouse are enjoying an evening out on the town, or getting specialized services to wash your car.
There could be and there are various reasons why you love your spouse but often have you told them that. So say I love you because you are such a caring wife, I love you because even after so many years you still make me smile. Don’t ever stop saying I Love you; it’s a great relation binder and a romance enhancing mantra.
In order to keep the romance meter soaring you need to little things like leaving love notes where they are seen easily, do the dishes to give some relaxation time to your spouse. If your spouse is busy with the kitchen work or with children you can help them by making the bed and so on you can find little things to please your spouse and keep that love alive.
Well, those are the four criteria that I think makes a great romance movie. There might be others but these are the four main criteria and when all four criteria appear in a romance movie, it is almost certain that the movie becomes a commercial and critical hit.
