Sometimes men want to be more romantic; they want to show just how much they really care, how much passion they really feel, how much their partner means to them, but it just doesn’t come naturally. Sure, they could buy some roses and yes they could bring home chocolates or a bottle of wine but what about women, like me, who see flowers as a waste of money because they quickly wither and die, who don’t drink wine because it doesn’t satisfy their taste buds (or because they are pregnant), and who see chocolates as less-than-worthy notches in their belts? I have more love in my relationship than I ever thought possible and I need it like I need food and water, but romance is like Rice Krispies; I crave them; I long for them; I want them to be part of my major food groups.
This morning when I woke up, I found Rice Krispies in the refrigerator and cute, romantic, albeit corny, love notes around the house. Darren’s simple, sweet, thoughtful expression of love showed me that romance is alive and well. It was a unique and personal way to express his love and it brought a smile to my face all day.
