LoveNote…

You need others and you depend on yourself. Needing others is not a mistake. Giving up your responsibility for satisfying your needs is a mistake. Your need to stand alone must be tempered by your need to stand together.

From the book, “LoveNotes for Lovers: Words That Make Music for Two Hearts Dancing.”

For Singles Only

Filed under: For Singles Only,LoveNote — Larry James @ 8:00 am

You must learn to be alone and happy before you can be together with someone else and be happy.

Your happiness only and always depends upon how you feel when you are alone, never how you think you will feel when you are with someone else. Healthy love relationships require that you be strong enough to resist rushing to your next relationship before all the hurts of the past are healed. Healing takes time.

Doing healing alone or with the assistance of a skilled professional, will always get you where you want to go much quicker. Be alone in the short term for the extraordinary long term benefits.

Learn what it takes to be in a healthy relationship with yourself.

When you get comfortable with being alone; when the feeling that you must be in a relationship to feel complete disappears, most likely you will be ready for another relationship.

The path to a healthy love relationship becomes more clear when you put your own well being ahead of having to be in a relationship to feel good about yourself.

Hide Love Notes for Your Partner to Discover!

Filed under: LoveNote,Romance,Romantic Tips! — Larry James @ 7:00 am

Anniversaries and birthdays are not the only time you should send a card or write a love note. Speak “sweet somethings” to your partner by using Post-It® notes in unexpected places, and express it in every way you can. Leave your sweetheart love notes – scattered around the house, in the garage and in the car.

Cookie jars are great hiding places for love notes. Leave a note in her sewing kit or on her sewing machine. Buy him/her an “I (heart) you” coffee mug.

yourehot-mirrorA few racy notes in the privacy of your home is fine too. “I love you” is not the only way to express your love. Say it with love quotes, loving poems, and hand-written love letters. Be creative. Use your imagination.

Leave a love note in his pre-packed lunch that you made for him. Leave a note for him in his trouser pocket. Spray your notes with cologne, so he will be certain to know it is there.

I once unrolled a roll of toilet paper and left a sticky love note rolled up inside in her bathroom. Hide a note under her makeup tray. Carve “I love you” in her bath soap. Buy a cheap tube of lipstick (don’t use hers) and write a note on the mirror she keeps in a drawer. Write a message for him on the bathroom mirror with his shaving cream.

loveyouHide a love note in the current book she is reading near the end of the book. Put a note inside the freezer in a freezer bag or on the pizza box in the fridge. Tape a note under the TV remote.

Have a single rose delivered to his/her office with a brief love note attached.

Write “I love you” on several other languages on different Post-It® notes and scatter them everywhere.

Tape a love note around her meds bottle. Leave a note for him under the bathroom toilet seat: “Thanks for putting the lid down!” 😉

Fill her car with gas and leave a love note on the rear-view mirror. Write something romantic on a Post-It® note and before she opens her favorite magazine to read, stick it to a page you think she is sure to read. Send a cell phone text message.

Leave a note tucked in his luggage (in a pair of socks) if he’s doing the traveling or leave a note on the pillow along with a Hershey’s kiss at home. A well written note can convey every flirtatious thought and then some. Pin a note inside a shirt just returned from the cleaners. A sticky love not on his laptop can be a surprise.

luvUblocksBuy a GIANT cookie and write “I love you!” or “je t’aime” (that’s French) in frosting.

CookieLuvChange your name in your partner’s cell phone directory to say “I Love You” instead of your name. Next time you call they are in for a surprise.

Cars are neat places to hide love notes – on the top of the sun visor, in the glove compartment and one of my favorites is to drive by her office and leave a note on the driver’s side window. Leave a love note attached to the spare tire saying, “I love you – Call AAA!”

Tack something sweet to his workbench tool board in the garage. Stick a note to the button of the garage door opener that says, “You can push my button anytime!”

Buy some sidewalk chalk. Draw a large heart on the driveway with red chalk and write, “I love you” in the middle.

lovenotesIt’s the thought behind the love note that counts. Some love notes will be find right away and others may be found months later. However, no matter when they are found they will always convey love and bring a smile to your partner’s face. Hopefully your love will not only be understood, but it will also be welcomed and returned.

Once last tip: Always remember to say, “I love you!” – out loud – to your partner at least once each day. Saying those three little words works magic in your relationship! Express your love in action as well as in words. Connect physically. Unexpected hugs are good too! Opps! Guess that’s two tips! 😉

LoveNote. . .

Filed under: LoveNote,Relationships — Larry James @ 7:00 am

You do not stumble on a great relationship by accident. You experience it on purpose. It doesn’t just happen. A great relationship is developed intentionally.

It is created by mutual consent and commitment and by nurturing it with loving thoughts, open communication, the attention given to it, intentional activity and a mutual decision for constructive action.

It becomes whatever two love partners decide it to be. It is the result of two dancing hearts being in step with one another; dancing to the same rhythm; connected; communicating words of love in a dance of togetherness.

LoveNote. . .

Filed under: LoveNote,Relationships — Larry James @ 7:00 am

The energy we give to our troubles by dwelling on them, saps us of the energy we need to find solutions for them. They seem to linger longer the more we pay attention to them.

Troubles feed on the energy we give them. Troubles deny us the opportunity that lies just past them. Never ask why troubles come. Be grateful there are solutions.

We need to redirect our energy. This deflates the ego of troubles.

Focus on the promise of a better tomorrow by acknowledging our troubles, then immediately get busy working on the discovery of workable solutions.

If we are to choose to make things work, we need to listen for answers. We cannot do this when we are immersed in the turmoil of confusion.

It takes much energy to remain confused.

LoveNote. . .

Filed under: Intimacy,LoveNote — Larry James @ 7:00 am

Relationship problems always find their way into the bedroom. Being too busy in your life often expresses as exhaustion; petty situations as resentment; unresolved conflict as anger, all resulting in a declining desire and far less than the energy required for healthy sex.

You may be together, but emotionally you are really not there for each other; both lying there, silently resigned to doing nothing to make it better, wallowing in your bitterness and resentment.

It is not possible to solve a problem that you cannot both acknowledge.

Can you imagine how your love life would be different if you would only talk about what’s really going on?

You don’t know what you are missing!

When you can learn to communicate about anything and everything at anytime, you can then not only share your love, you will find the full expression of the love you have for each other even more exciting. If you can’t talk about it, you can’t fix it!

Closer intimacy is about effective communications.

LoveNote. . . (for women only)

Filed under: For Women Only,LoveNote,Relationships — Larry James @ 6:00 am
Tags: , ,

Men tend to grow at their own speed. Unless your love partner is intentional about personal growth, anything you say to help may only cause him to feel that you think he is broken.

Right or wrong, men inherently believe they can handle their own stuff.

This may or may not be true, but being insistent about helping him grow can temporarily shut him out of your life.

Quit trying to fix him!

Be there for him when he is ready to be cared for, otherwise let him be and quietly attend to yourself.

LoveNote. . . For Singles Only

Beware of dancing hormones! They often mask a multitude of stuff. You know what I mean. It’s that time when both of your antennas go up! You’re tuned in to each other. Your body tells you things you didn’t know about yourself.

Your heart is dancing! Is it your heart or your hormones? To some, that is the fun part; a time for romance; the time when you are deep in thought. . . “Is this the one?”

While it’s true that this part of a relationship feels good, perhaps you should follow your heart instead of your hormones on this one. The hormones will scream words like: ‘forget all that stuff about healthy love relationships, live fast, love hard and get this one before he or she gets away!’ or ‘carve another notch, this one’s the same as in bed!’ or whatever the hormones moan.

Your heart will whisper words like: ‘take it easy!’ – ‘one step at a time!’ – ‘get to know each other’ – ‘tell each other the relevant truth’ – ‘make sure it’s love and not just sex!’ or whatever the heart could say that would be words of love and encouragement.

Only and always listen to your heart!

Working together in a love relationship to get your individual needs met and the mutual needs of the relationship and not have expectations about how those needs get met will always generate new things to talk about.

Having expectations about how your needs get met is not only unrealistic it is an unhealthy attitude.

For example, if I expect you to love me a certain way and your love doesn’t show up that way for me, I will most likely be disappointed. A better way might be to have your need for being loved fulfilled by allowing your love partner to love you the way they love you.

Being okay with how they love you creates a sense of adventure; it creates new and exciting possibilities for the two of you to experience together. Often challenges show up.

However, when two people really love each other and are committed to work together, challenges like these create the kind of conversations that empower both love partners to continue to self-inquire. They then choose to investigate their curiosities about what they can do to stand together, to be challenged by this new way of being and know that everything is going to be okay.

LoveNote. . .

As we come to understand our equal share in creating problems, blame, self-doubt, and discord gives way to personal responsibility, accountability, mutual respect and intimacy.

Problems in relationships are never only one persons fault. They are shared problems.

In a healthy love relationship, things are easiest when both love partners take responsibility for the whole, not just their halves.
