I am a husband who keeps his nose to the grindstone, but need to come up and smell the roses every once in a while so I would like to spend a romantic evening with my wife either at home or out on the town. Any suggestions on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated. Flowers and candy? A home cooked meal? Dinner and a movie? Please help!
Dear Hardworking Hubby,
Thank you for the thoughtful query and especially for including a photo. Did anyone ever tell you that you bear a striking resemblance to Mr. Gregory Peck?
Très debonair! But, I digress. Back to the pressing matter at hand - how to treat your beloved bride like a queen!
The key to planning a passionate evening is to make it as wonderfully unique as your wife. Pay careful attention to her preferences and desires. Take notes if you must, my dear man - true romance is in the details!
If your wife enjoys dinner, dancing and theater, this is the prime time to whisk her away for whirlwind evening about town. A quiet night at home is also the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your beloved.
Either way, set the tone for a positively dreamy evening with a few simple steps:
