Creating the Mood

My lover is mine and I am his.

Song of Songs 2:16

Romance can mean vastly different things to women and men, but for most of us the word describes that wonderful feeling of being noticed, wanted, and pursued—of being at the very center of our lover's attention. Women are inclined to define romance as the things a husband does to make them feel loved, protected, and respected. Flowers, compliments, nonsexual touching, and love notes are all steps in the right direction. So is helping with the chores. As author Kevin Leman once said, "The greatest of all aphrodisiacs is for a man to take out the garbage for his wife."

Men, on the other hand, rely more on their senses. They appreciate a wife who makes herself as attractive to her husband as possible. A man wants to be respected—and even better, admired—by his wife. He likes to hear his wife express genuine interest in his opinions, hobbies, and work.

Obviously, these are generalizations, so take your spouse's definition to heart. Knowing how he or she perceives romance can help you avoid many misunderstandings and disappointments. With a little care and forethought, you can keep the flame of romance burning brightly.

From Dr. Dobson's book Night Light for Couples.
