View Full Version : Update on me and the romance issue
Last night DH wasn't working so I got a nice bottle of wine, candles, romantic music, chocolate etc and set to getting our bedroom lovely...
We are still trying to find our feet again romantically so sex wasn't going to be on the cards (I made that clear from the outset), but we chatted, drank wine and talked about all that has been and all that is yet to come.
I explained my feelings, he explained his. We cuddled and told each other we still loved each other.
We have agreed Thursday night is now date night (so will have to tape House!) and we will do the same again, until we are ready to jump the bones of each other.
Today we had a real family day. We took J to the duck pond then he cooked a roast dinner and then we went for a walk on the beach.
So, let's hope it keeps going in this direction.
He is bathing J now and then we are going to share another glass of wine.
There is hope. :ellie:
That's lovely :) It's all about making the effort, spending the time, and remembering what it is you like about each other :yes:
You'll be :snog: in no time!! :ellie:
dora the ex...
aww lola sounds like you both had a great night and things will soon pick up for you xxx
Glad you've had a lovely day Lola.
Enjoy your date night :ellie:
It's a great idea btw
That sounds great! I think that's what me and DH lack is time alone together. It's never gonna happen while my mom lives here too.
Hope you enjoy your date nights :lovin:
Lola, that sounds lovely ! Enjoy your date nights and enjoy just spending time together.
I find DH and I go through phases of forgetting about each other and how to be a couple, but the re-discovering is all part of the fun :wik:
That sounds amazing Lola - well done you two. It's hard to make the effort when you both work so hard and are tired from your day and looking after a toddler. Will know where you are when you aren't on msn on a thursday :wik: :laff:
Well done both of you on taking the steady approach.
:clap: :clap: :clap: well done Lola, that sounds fab
DH and I used to have date nights all the time but we have got very lazy :-( :-( so all credit to you!!
Sounds like you have the ball rolling beautifully Lola, love the idea of a date night, we do this on Saturday nights, take it in turn to cook a nice meal, have a few bottles of wine, some nice music on in thew backgrouns and no tv.
We tend to eat around 9pm and sit till around 11 talking
Hope your works as well for you as it has for us. You defo need couple time at least once a week
Thats sounds brill Lola.
DH and I only see each other on the weekend, so maybe I should adopt the same approach. Although we are together on a Sat and Sun evening, we tend to watch films etc and not really talk.
Maybe I should make more of an effort, and make us sit to the table to eat, where we have to talk to each other.
Hope it goes well.
What a lovely idea Lola, sounds like you had a great evening! :yes:
Keep us updated :D
sounds like you had a greta night :ellie:
Just seen this Lola.
Sounds like youve made a great start.
And hay - look what day it is - Thursday DATE NIGHT :ellie:
Hope you and N have a lovely time tonight :snog:
Enjoy your date night, hon.
It really is true when 'they' say that marriage has to be worked at. It certainly sounds as though you're getting back on track. xxx
