You+Me = Chemistry, Day 7
You + Me = Chemistry
Remember back to when you were first attracted to your mate. What about your man made him so appealing. Close you eyes and incorporate your senses – What did you see that you liked? Did he wear a particular scent that made you swoon or maybe just his natural “man” smell drove you crazy? Do you remember what he said to you – was there anything in his voice that attracted you? What about the first touch – a brush on the hand, a tap on the shoulder, a hug, or your first kiss? Make a list of all the things that initially attracted you to him.
Now think about all the things that are attractive about him now. What parts of him visually appeal to you? Is there something he says in a certain tone of voice that warms your heart or gets your blood pumping? Is there a certain way he touches you that turns you on? Does he have a certain taste that thrills you?
Make a list of all the things that attract you to him now. You can type it up and send it to him in an email at work or send him text messages throughout the day telling him little things that you find so attractive. Compare your lists. What’s changed? What hasn’t? Share these lists with your spouse tonight and ask him to make his own – verbally or non-verbally (although he doesn’t have to do it on the spot).
For fun and if at all possible, recreate your very first date night (or your first dating anniversary or the day you got engaged)! I realize this may take some preparation so you can put it off if you must. Unfortunately for us, Adam’s and my first “official date” was at a pizza place that doesn’t exist out here in Colorado. However, no worries. I think I can come up with something. ;o)
Editor’s Note: After some consideration, I’ve decided there will be no “What Kind of Wife Do You Want to Be” series posts for this week through the end of December due to travel and holiday plans. I apologize for all the changes. I teach part-time during the week on Wednesdays and Thursdays, my most hectic days of the week. Thank you for sticking with me through all the ups and downs. Seems like I get started just to stop again, but I appreciate your patience and understanding.
