Romance and relationship

Every dating relationship needs romance to stay alive. Most couples have little issue with finding romantic ideas to share with their partner early on, but after the new relationship energy has worn off it may take a bit of time and creativity to get the romance flowing again. Without romance, couples can easily fall into a rut of day-to-day living. What was once hot and steamy can become boring, routine or even sibling-like.
Valentine’s Day is a perfect example of a romantic thing to celebrate. Being romantic comes down to being aware. Although this list of romantic ideas is a great point to start from, it is in no means exhaustive. Just as each of us is uniquely wired individuals, each person needs and craves romance in a different way.
Listen and be aware of what your partner is saying to you every single day. If they bemoan a social obligation, surprise them with a special piece of clothing perfect for the occasion. Are they partial to flowers? Then go outside and grab a couple of blooms from the garden to put alongside their morning meal. Know they hate doing a particular chore or errand? Do it for them. Have they been running ragged of late with no time to themselves? Give them a day off and pamper them with things that refuel them personally: a beloved book, video game, spa treatment, trip to the beach, or home cooked meal.
Sometimes these types of romantic ideas go unnoticed - which can be a tad unnerving. If that's the case, give your partner a kiss and let them know you took care of things for them, or have a special surprise to thank them. Then, leave it at that. It may take a little bit for the act to sink in, but it your forethought and kindness will be appreciated as long as you are romantic because you care - and not because you are expecting a specific reaction in return.
Here are 10 romantic beach ideas to jump-start your romance!
1) Take a moonlight walk along the shore - Stroll along the sandy beach, hand in hand, and talk about anything under the sun - or moon, as the case may be. A moonlit stroll, just the two of you, can be one of the most relaxing, romantic beach ideas you may find.
2) Splash in the surf - chase each other around in the waves! Play tag, and the one caught must give the other a kiss. Or make up your own rewards for the winner.
3) Share a blanket together - spread a quilt or blanket on the sand, under a shady umbrella, and just lay back. Take a nap, or snuggle. No agenda, no cell phones, no interruptions. This time is for you!
4) Build a sand castle together - re-discover your inner kid and construct a sand castle. This project can't help but improve your couple communication skills, and you'll have a sense of achievement when you view the finished product.
5) Find a great spot for romantic beach photos - take turns snapping photos of each other with the sand, waves, and shore as your backdrop. Destinations like Jekyll Island's Driftwood Beach provide fantastic photo ops.
6) Fly a kite together - this brings back memories of childhood innocence. Kites are perfect for
bringing couples together, and there's something about watching that flimsy contraption of paper and string floating on the breeze.
7) Have a picnic on the beach - great romantic beach ideas include picnics on the sand. Spread a blanket, unpack your picnic basket (be sure to include a bottle of wine!), and lay back. With a picnic on the beach, you can feed each other (both literally and figuratively).
8) Attend a beach music festival - many resort destinations put on beach music festivals that include live bands and dancing. Just make sure you stay hydrated!

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
