Love and Romance: 12 Romance Rituals to Start

Have a Sexy Sleepover

Sometime this week, e-mail your guy, and tell him to reserve Friday night but not to worry about coming up with a date idea — you’ll plan everything. Then, before he shows up, turn your place into a low-key bed-and-breakfast with fresh linens on the bed, the ingredients for his drink of choice, and a season of his favorite TV show on DVD. Once he arrives, order delivery for dinner, and get in “do not disturb” mode by turning off your cell phones. We trust you know the rest.

Partake in an Intimate Picnic

Eat outside Parisian-style in the park with your guy on the next nice weekend afternoon. Buy some Brie, chèvre, or mimolette (a tasty, hard French cheese),
fruit, a baguette, and Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais (a delicious French wine that comes in cute mini fourpacks — the perfect picnic size). Glam up the meal by bringing wineglasses and china plates. Then spread out a blanket on the grass and take turns feeding each other, while you soak up the sunshine.

Treat Him to a Rubdown

In the middle of the day, shoot your guy the following text: “Hot date tonight. 8 pm sharp." When he shows up, dim the lights, put on some chill tunes, and ask him to lie facedown on your couch or bed (oh, and the shirt’s gotta come off). Once he’s in relax mode, give him a nice, long back rub with massage oil. (Tip: Guys tend to prefer earthy scented oils, like pine and eucalyptus, rather than rosy ones). This special treatment will remind him that he’s one hell of a lucky guy to have you.

Take a Steamy Bath Together

Showering solo is so 9 to 5. When you have a lazy weekend morning, take advantage of it. While he’s still in bed, run the water, light a few candles for atmosphere, and cue up a chill playlist from your iPod. Then wake him up with a gentle kiss, lure him into the bathroom, and use a sweet-smelling scrub to rub each other down.

Bond Over Cooking Together

Preparing a meal together can really help you connect. Start by finding an easy but special recipe, and forget the usual routine of who-does-what in the kitchen. All that time spent chopping and simmering is conducive to catching up after a chaotic workweek.

Play a Passionate Game

Challenge your man to a retro board game — think Life or Trouble — or a round of bowling or minigolf and it’ll light a spark between you two. Getting competitive eliminates weekday stress, encourages flirting, and builds sexual fervor. Hint: Make a bet that the loser has to give the winner a full-body massage.

Take Him on a “Boys’ Night Out”

Treat your boyfriend or hubby to a date that's all about him. Text him Friday morning, and tell him to leave the night open. Then pick him up from work, and whisk him away to a burger joint where you can dig into some red meat together and enjoy a few beers. Follow it up with tickets to a basketball game or a movie he’s been dying to see. <<< Page 1
