From the Introduction
Love may make the world go 'round, but it's romantic love that makes the ride worthwhile. We need love, but we crave romance (just like you need broccoli, but you crave chocolate!). It's romantic love that allows you to say emphatically, "I'm in love with you," instead of merely, "I love you."
This book is about reigniting passion and deepening intimacy. It is for young and old, singles and marrieds, men and women. It is for you if you want to turn your relationship into a love affair.
Why are so many marriages mediocre and boring? Not because they lack love, but because they lack romance. Love is lukewarm, comfortable-while romance is hot, exciting!
Everyone wants passion and romance in his or her life. But-
- Some people are uncertain how to create romance. This book shows you how.
- Some people are stuck in cultural stereotypes. This book helps you appreciate your partner as a unique and special individual.
- And some people have given up the search for romance out of frustration or cynicism. This book will reinspire you.
Love in the twenty-first century is about practicing old-fashioned values with a modern twist. It is about honoring the timeless values of honesty, commitment, and caring, while expressing them creatively, uniquely, and passionately. And this is where romance comes in. Romance, you see, is the expression of love. Romance brings love alive in the world. Without romance, love is a sweet but empty concept.
I believe that expressing love is our purpose as human beings. Therefore, anything that helps you achieve this purpose is a good thing.
"I respect and recommend Greg Godek's writings on love right along with William Shakespeare's."
-Margie LaPanja, author of The Goddess' Guide to Love
There are thousands, millions of ways of expressing love. These 1001 ideas are just the beginning.
