~August Is National Romance Awareness Month~

August National Romance Month Couples Marriage Realationships Love I don’t know about you but I have been married over 6 years now and the romance flew the coop a long. Time. Ago!  Don’t get me wrong…my husband still buys me flowers every 6 months once in a while and we do still have date nights but there’s no “romancing the stone cold love affair” around here. The dating phase is always such a glorious one.  Getting to know the person and all those fluttering butterflies that make your stomach feel like you’ve ridden the best amusement park ride there is without puking.  There’s not a moment in the day that goes by that you don’t think about having sex with seeing that one perfect person. And when you do the clothes are off in less than 5 minutes! August Romance Awareness Month Married with children sometimes has a tendency to blow that fuse right out!  Poof gone!  Must find trickier ways to be romantic…one being actually staying awake! So luckily there are times like August for “National Romance Awareness Month”.  Attention couples…are you listening?  Apparently studies show that couples who try new activities together stay together.  They have a better connection with one another which then could lead to the possibility of hotter sex!  Notice I said possibility.  Really?  Do these people who execute the results of these studies actually study married couples with children? August Romance Awareness Month Marriage Relationships It’s hard to find the time to be romantic when you have children interrupting every moment of your waking hours.  And inevitably when there is a great moment in which they are entertained and preoccupied….you suddenly realize…you haven’t showered and well that takes priority over sex.  So does the fact that you don’t want your partner to “smell” you. Now luckily for my husband,  I have never been one of those women who really cares much about romance.  I like the occasional gift of “surprise” flowers and my husband is good about sending me little notes via social media and I am just fine with that.  I don’t need lavish presents or vacations and well let’s face it,  with 4 kids at home…there’s other more important things to pay for.  Like clothes and food.  Therefore I don’t fall into the 78% of people who think romance is of great importance in a relationship.  I am quite certain neither does my husband. August National Romance Awarness Month I am also not a big fan of Valentine’s Day, because quite frankly there shouldn’t need to be a holiday that says “I Love You”.  It should be something you know and say to one another every day.  And here it is with the first week of August gone and you want to know how many romantic things I have done for my husband or vice versa?  Nada.  Unless you count the fact that he dropped his bacon on the floor at breakfast the other morning and I gave him a piece of mine.  Now that’s romance people!
