When was the last time you and your spouse went on a date?
I am in the relationship business and I see it happen to the best of people. We all get caught up in life’s daily routines and never ending chores. By days end we are way too exhausted to spend any quality time with the one we love. My solution, schedule 1 or 2 nights per month for date night. Date night means chores get put on the back burner.Do something special, a movie, a picnic, a walk on the beach, or even an ice cream with the person you love. Why do you ask? Because some day they will not be here and the one thing you can’t get back is lost time. So enjoy the future by enjoying the little things with the person that said “I do”. You will both live happier and more rewarding lives if you do.

A Love Poem
A thought on Love
A bell is not a bell until you ring it.
A song is not a song until you sing it.
Love wasn’t put in your heart to stay.
Love isn’t love, until you give it away.

How’d the FIRST DATE go?
A few things to look for on the first date…
1. Did the date ask about YOU at all, or blab about themselves for the entire time?
2. Was theri tone and topics of a positive, or negative nature?
3. Did they dress well? If nothing else, its a sign of respect.
4.How did the date treat the waiter/ waitress? Decent tip? Could be a sign of how they treat others.
5.Any talk of old significant others.. was it positive, or blaming and spiteful. Are they over that one?
6.Although only date #1 early, could this person be a good role model to your future child, and/or, would your parents approve?
You would be amazed how gut instincts and first impressions are more correct than not.

Forgive – but don’t forget
Holding a grudge – hanging onto past hurt with the intention of, some day, some how, inflicting pain on the person who hurt you, by way of retribution – does most damage to the person holding it!
When you hold a grudge, anger, bitterness and resentment eat away at your soul, while the person who caused such feelings to surface, appears to be unaffected. Of course, that makes it worse and you end up in a vicious circle of negativity that was damages you much more than the ‘sin’ against you ever could.
Whoever tagged the words ‘and forget’ onto the word ‘forgive’ didn’t do any favours for forgiveness! It is neither possible – nor healthy – to forget when somebody has hurt you. In the same was as your body carries the scars of old injuries, your soul carries the reminders of the wounds inflicted upon it.
You cannot forget – but you certainly can forgive.
In fact, until you forgive the person who hurt you, the pain will never leave and the wound will never heal, simply because you are keeping it open.
Forgiving doesn’t mean condoning or in any way justifying a wrongdoing.
It simply means accepting that everybody makes mistakes and people get hurt and that making mistakes does not make any of us bad. It just means we’re human.
The old saying that you can hate the sin and still love the sinner explains this very well.
It is the people closest to us, the people we care for the most, who have the greatest power to hurt us. When they let us down, or disappoint us, or cheat and lie and behave in a way that we find unacceptable, they have broken a subtle bond of trust – and that’s what hurts!
The only way to really heal that hurt is to go as far as possible to rebuild that bond and the very first step on that road is to forgive the person who caused the pain.
Until that happens, you are caught in an unwholesome spiral of negative emotions and nothing can get better.
If you’re happy being miserable, carry on. But, if you would like to feel whole again, start by just considering the possibility that it might be possible to forgive the person who has hurt you.
That’s a huge, huge step forward – and the only one you need to take to begin the journey to forgiveness.

Simple Tips for a Stronger Marriage
1. Both give 100% of the time, rather than thinking its a 50/50 proposal.If both think that way… things work better
2. Think of the other partner.. what can I do for you today? Again if both think that way,rather than “what can you do for me”, its a win win for all.
3. Pick your battles. So many arguements are little, petty and in the big picture, don’t mean much at all. Try to think… will this matter in a month or a year. If not,is it worth the fight? Probably not.
4. Do little nice things every once in awhile. You know your partners habits. Use them and turn them into a plus. If your wife loves coffee in the am.. sneek a bit of whip cream on it,or buy her a donut to go with it.
5. Act romantic and you’ ll feel romantic. Positive surporises are usually greeted with a big grin.
6. Don’t blame the other person. Always think.. is there something I could have done better?
Just a few things that will make any relationship stronger and with more smiles.

3 Simple Tips
1. Look each other in the eye when you speak. It makes them feel important and helps you GIVE THEM your full attention.
2. Practice taking turns when speaking.Non stop talkers are BORING. So are silent partners. Practice BOTH listening AND talking.
3. See things from your partners perspective. To be close to someone is to get to know how they feel. You don’t have to agree. You don’t need to argue either. Just feel where they “are coming from”. Try to repeat what they are feeling to see if you understand them.

Greatest wedding tip ever for both bride and groom
Whatever brings you deep relaxation, budget for it to happen in the two days before the wedding. For example, if you like full-body massages, hitting some balls at the driving range, etc, having the appointment already set for yourself will negate the \”oh, I don\’t have time for THAT right now–I have to finish the place settings / chauffeur my cousins around / make sure the ribbons on my favors are straight!\” You should have already budgeted or paid for the service so that you know you\’ll use it… then let yourself enjoy the hour or two. It will help you to enjoy the night(s) before the big day and be more relaxed. By the way, manicures and pedicures should be a given… do one more thing for you… you\’ll love me for it!

Be looking for ACE’s
Best tip when you are dating a person, and thinking of getting more serious
Ask yourself if the person you are dating is an ACE?
An ACE has great ATTITUDE, CHARACTER and is ENTHUSIASTIC.
This is also a great formula when hiring people is business.It’s a great way to find a mate.
If your man looks great but has a crap attitude.. your in for trouble.
If your woman seems great to you, but has very questionable character.. stay away.
If your significant other is out of spunk, has no get up and go, and is just “going through the motions”, politely decline and look elsewhere.
Be looking for ACE’s.
You’ll be glad you did.
