On behalf of all women...

When he kisses you he isn't doing anything else. You're his whole universe..and the moment is eternal because he doesn't have any plans and isn't going anywhere. Just kissing's overwhelming.


Oh, be still my heart. I love this quote. Love Love Love it. And why do I love it? Because I am a woman! I love to be romanced, cherished and swept off of my feet. It used to be a common occurrence for me- those butterflies- when I was told, in a soft sweet voice very close to my ear that I am beautiful. Or the little note slipped into my hand upon passing that read “I love you with all my heart. Kiss”. Ahhh, romance.


And then I got married.


I would like to put the word out there on behalf of all married women everywhere… even those that deny this blog. We want to be romanced!!


Why, men, does it fly out of the window like a freed dove when the ring goes on the finger? Seriously, are vows the last ditch effort in being romanced? Why do you put so much effort into capturing our hearts and then slack when you have them? I, personally, am tired of being humped, I want to be romanced. And, here I give some advice (and explain the hump thing).


I’ve often wondered (before I was married, anyway) why trashy, romance novels are so popular among us ‘desperate housewives’. And then, I figured it out. Each book is a memoir of the man we used to know, the man we fell in love with. He is trapped in that book and because, in real life, our man makes no effort in tucking that loose strand of hair behind our ear, we must find him elsewhere.


Men, you were created to be chivalrous! God created you to wrap your arms around your wife; to protect her, cherish her, love her, honor her… sound familiar? Marriage is to be the closest example of God’s love toward us. Jesus is the bridegroom and His church is the bride. Men are encouraged to love their wives even as Christ loved the church. Yes, it is about laying down your life the way Jesus did on the cross; but, I believe that its also about romancing your wife as Christ romanced the church! We were not randomly saved- Jesus romanced us into salvation!


It is the mainstream stereotype: the horny husband and the book bound wife. Hence: my humping complaint. Men think, for some reason, that gyrating and groping will get them what they want. Here is a little secret—it won’t! You want your wife to be all over you? Kiss her on the neck before you leave for work. Look her in the eyes for a while and then, ever so softly, tell her that she is the woman of your dreams. I can promise you that if you make this kind of behavior a habit, you will get that woman of your dreams.


Romance is a two way road, I know. But, it’s so much easier for you to make that first act; she will then hold your hand and romance you in return. Thus, love has entered your hearts once again.


So, I want to encourage all husbands, LOVE your wives by romancing them! They are soft hearted and tender and although some husbands may think, “You don’t know my wife- she hates flowers and chocolate will make her feel fat! I know she doesn’t need that romance stuff”… you couldn’t be farther from the truth. For some reason (I haven’t even figured it out yet) women don’t want to have to tell their men how to be romanced- they want them to figure it out on their own- maybe because its so much more special that way. SO, if  you need help or ideas, check out this link:


Good luck!
