Read an Excerpt

Once Upon a Time ...
... two people fell in love. Just like you. They did all the classic romantic things. But the passion faded after a few months. Is this inevitable??

Tip1a
He gave her a dozen roses and a box of chocolates on Valentine's Day.

Tip 1b
She wrote him long, romantic love letters. He sent her greeting cards.

Tip 1c
They talked and cooed on the phone. During work. And late at night.

Tip 1d
He took her to see every romantic movie that year.

Tip 1e
He gave her perfume. She gave him cologne.

Tip 1f
They celebrated special occasions with a bottle of champagne.

Tip 1g
She served dinner by candlelight. He served breakfast in bed.

... They Lived Happily Ever After

Go beyond "Generic Romance." Couples with A+ Relationships* know the secret of creating unique and personal ways to express their love.

*How would you grade your relationship?
A = Passionate, exciting, loving, fulfilling; not perfect-but clearly excellent.
B = Very good, solid, better-than-most, consistent, improving.
C = Average, acceptable, status quo, okay-but static, ho-hum, sometimes boring.
D = Below average, unhappy, dismal; bad-but not hopeless.
F = Hopeless, depressing, dangerous; tried everything, it didn't work.

Tip 2
Give your lover a dozen roses-and do it with a creative twist. Give eleven red roses and one white rose. Attach a note that reads:
"In every bunch there's one who stands out-and you are that one."

Tip 3
Sending a birthday card isn't just a good idea, it's an obligatory romantic gesture. But how about doing something different this year? On your lover's birthday, send a "thank you" card to his/her mother.

Tip 4
Gallantry never really goes out of style. So every once in a while kiss her hand with a flourish. Note: The proper way to kiss a woman's hand is to lower your lips to her hand. You don't raise her hand to your lips.

Tip 5
Thoughtfulness is merely the beginning! True romantics know how to go "above and beyond the call of duty": Following a bubble bath you've prepared for her, wrap her in a towel that you've warmed up in the dryer.
** These are the secrets of turning your relationship into a love affair!

Little Things Mean a Lot
Tip 6
Gift wrap a wishbone in a jewelry box. Send it to her with a note that says, "I wish you were here."

Tip 7
Unplug the TV. Put a note on the screen saying, "Turn me on instead."

Tip 8
Go through revolving doors together.

Tip 9
Keep candles in the car. Eat dinner by candlelight the next time you go to McDonald's.

Tip 10
Run your hands under hot water before joining your partner in bed(!)

Tip 11
Look-no, gaze-into each other's eyes more often.

Tip 12
Write him a little love note. Insert it into the book he's reading
Chapter Theme Song:
"Love Don't Cost a Thing," Jennifer Lopez

**The relationship "secret" that's not really a secret: Express your love in lots of little ways.

**Pick wildflowers from a field or the side of the road.
