Putting the 'Man' into 'Romance'
Keeping Love Alive
Michael Webb: I celebrate Valentines Day 365days out of the
year. February 14 is not a special occasion for my wife and me.Unfortunately
February 14 has become so commercialized it's difficult to letyour true
feelings be expressed on a day that has so much expectation attachedto it. In a
recent poll that I saw 92% of the people who responded said thatthe amount that
was spent on them on Valentine?s Day was irrelevant. They onlycared about the
meaning behind the gifts.
Question from GIVEMEURLUV: It seems most of the timedates
should be romantic for the girls, but what's a really good way to make
itromantic for the GUY?
Michael Webb: To consider what his likes andhis feelings
are. Maybe he wants to be an astronaut -- then you could take himto the
planetarium. Perhaps he's an outdoorsy type of guy. You can go fishingwith him
one weekend. Again, it's most important to ask him questions, to getto know
him, and to plan your events around what would make him feel special.
