Learn about love & romance

Knowing your mate

Early on in my blogging history I shared about understanding your partners love language. I gave you a brief overview of the five languages of love. These are vitally important when you are romancing your mate. You can spend a lot of time and energy and even money on romance that your mate won’t really appreciate if you buy gifts when all they really want is sincere compliments or quality time together.

Now my primary love language is quality time. I love doing things with my partner. The simple; like going for a walk and just catching up. I have an adventurous streak so taking on a  new challenge together is romantic for me. We recently learnt to scuba dive which was a big turn on for me.

A couple of other bloggers have talked about a mate who truly listens to them. Their primary love language could be quality time or appreciation. Yet another talked about being cared for particularly when they are not feeling great. Their love language is probably acts of service.


Here is a short list of things that are romantic for me:

  •  Cooking a meal together then sharing it at a beautifully set table with candle light.
  •   Hiking to new scenic spot, taking some awesome photos then putting down the camera and having a passionate kiss.
  • Learning a new skill like playing the guitar and then singing a love song.
  • Going to a spa and having a massage together.
  • Sharing quality wine and cheese and good conversation.
  • Jumping out of a plane together (with parachutes attached)
  • Going to a new country and helping out on a project.


Now my partner has a different love language. His are words of appreciation and physical touch.

So my list to romance him is a little different:

  • A shoulder rub and little speech about how wonderful I think he is.
  • A love note packed in his lunch.
  • Going to a spa and having a massage together.
  • Holding his hand while we are walking even at the mall.
  • Lots of hugs and kisses.

I hope this gives you some inspiration and you make your own list of what is romantic for you and your mate. Now be generous and share this first with your partner and second with us. If you are lucky some of the romantic things will be the same for you both do those mutual things often.

Remember knowing your mate makes romancing them so much easier and a lot of fun.
