The Four Most Romantic Gestures
by Staci Stallings


“You get that account closed out?”


You know this conversation. If you’ve ever been married, you’ve probably had this conversation. However, this isn’t the kind of talking I mean. What I mean is getting under the surface of life to what’s going on in a person’s spirit.

Those newly in love know how incredible it can feel to open up to another person and let them see into your soul and then believe you are accepted for who you really are—rather than for the mask you show the outside world.

Not only that, but we all know someone we would like to get to know better, someone we could spend hours with and never tire of asking them questions about who they are and how they got to this place. That, I think, is the point. When we are first in love, we want to find out everything about the other person.

We want to find out what they love, and what they hate, who they love, and who they hate

At some point, however, we begin to think we know everything about the other person, and we stop asking—and listening. This is the beginning of the death of romance.

So, if you really want to feel close again, shut off the television, put down the book, forget the laundry and the dishes for the night. Sit down, put your arm around your mate, and talk.

Get to know each other again.

That’s true romance.

I guarantee you both will feel the romance return.

It doesn’t take a myriad of candles, flowers, and candy. It takes two people who want to spend time together and get to know one another better.
