- First off, a survey done of "what women really want" stated that TRAVEL was the #1 gift that women wanted. This doesn't need to be a trip to Europe...but CAN be a day trip to a nearby city for a show & dinner...Getting out of your normal comfort zone makes you feel more "present" & aware & heightens your senses to a whole new level. So get out of your normal routine!
- Make sure to know your partners "essence" and what their comfort level is. Not everyone feels comfortable in Victoria Secret lingerie, but a beautifu silk robe & teddy can do wonders for some's confidence level! It should be said this goes for the guys as well...If your significant other doesn't "understand" this argument...have him wear a g-string for a day & have him get back to you! (Hear Kim's story on the show!).
- Not everyone wants to do a romantic dinner...some think kayaking is romantic! Know what makes YOU tick as a couple...NOT what society dictates to you as romantic.
WOOD: ambitious, dynamic, direct, health-focused
WATER: freedom-loving, self-expression, unique
FIRE: enthusidastic, entertaining, impulsive, passionate, life of the party
METAL: analytical, appropriate, elegant, cultured, clean lines
EARTH: nurturing, confined, traditional, comforting
Keep this in mind when buying gifts or thinking of things to do on a date with any of the element personalities! A WATER person would be more comfortable water-rafting or skiing on a date, while a METAL person would rather go to the theater and an EARTH person would rather go to a charity event or volunteer...See how this works?
Kim also suggests using aromatherapy...for perfume or to add ambience to your environment:
patchouli, lavendar & cedarwood are great scents for adding romance
lavendar & gardenia are great for enhancing romance
sandalwood, patchouli & vanilla are the top scents men prefer
