Valentines Ideas For Couples
Building Relationships Together
Great valentines ideas for couples, sharing, caring, importance of touch, SHMILY and our top 5 valentines day suggestions
No one really knows who Saint Valentines was but church records show two
men named Valentine. One legend says that a man helped young soldiers
to marry. When the Emperor found out, he became outraged and put
Valentine in jail. The Roman children loved Valentine so much that they
wrote little notes of encouragement and sent them to him in prison. The
notes said that they loved him and missed him.
Marriage and relationships take hard work. This is a perfect time of the year to reconnect and take time to show your love to your loved ones. Let them know in special ways how much you love & value them.
Your mate can be left ‘out in the cold’ when life gets busy and you’re
giving to everyone around you: children, parents, pets, friends,
extended family & even your job. Use valentines ideas for couples.
Let’s slow down to show love to that special someone in our life and...
Let’s reconnect as a couple.

I have challenges with keeping physical, especially during the end of my
pregnancies with my own added physical sensitivity & I start to
push my husband away. It's hard when the baby comes taking all my time,
energy and attention with little left for my husband. I need to really
work at bringing him in again. I have to make it intentional and push
myself to do it. A passing back rub, holding a bit longer, adding words
of encouragement and affirmations, kissing and hugging every day to
open myself up again. It may take him some time to respond but I have
to keep doing it. Reconnecting sexually with perfumed sheets, massage
oil, a sexy outfit, some soft music and letting my heart skip a beat,
desiring him all over again.
Keep Connected using some of these Valentines ideas for couples.
Love is patient, caring and kind. Have a great Valentines Day together!
