This last week has been a good week, Hubby came home from hospital, and is doing well. I had so many meetings, classes and presentations I ran, plus a workshop, visited a friend in the country for a couple of days and took her to another workshop too. Now I have so much work to catch up on, plus editing. Life feels good just now.
So here is this week’s SYW questions…
In your opinion, do May/December (older partner with much younger partner) romances ever work? Personally I don’t know any which have worked, a few years yes, but not more than 10 or 20. In saying that several of my friends are up 10 years older than me and we get on fine. My hubby is three years older and that’s fine. But I guess it depends on the couple and their relationship. But I feel in general if there is too big a gap, the difference are too big.
What physical action or gesture do you find romantic? Not big on romance. Sure I love it in Rom-Com movies, but in real life not so much. Make me coffee in bed, do the washing or grocery shopping, that’s heaven! Doing something nice for someone, especially if you love them and know them well.
What is your idea of a romantic dinner? Many years ago, Hubby and I were on holidays, we took a sunset sailboat cruise around the Great Barrier Reef. It was magic a glass of bubbly, some yummy nibbles, the sunset was gorgeous and I had the sun on my face and wind in my hair. Not too hot or too cold. Just perfect. I would love to have THAT moment again.
Is ’love’ a real ’thing’ or merely a physical chemical response and brain activity pulling our emotional strings? I know the feelings are real, but they change. At first it can be that hot intense physical response, which is great. And I feel that this is something people keep looking for, so they keep looking in one form or another. But I think the ones that evolve into a strong friendship, a comfortable companionship…these are the ones that last.
How do you show your loved ones that you love them? If I am honest, it’s possibly something I do not do enough of. I guess we all get complacent. Its the small things, I tell them I love them, but doing small things to help them or make their life easier or even just put a smile on their face. I also say thank you…and mean it. Too often we say say thanks for something, but don’t really mean it, have you noticed that?
I hope you all are having a good week…we all need more of those.
