in the northern hemisphere so for most of the world, it’s getting
pretty cold outside.
think of romance as a summer affair, with little clothing and light
summer breezes as you and your boyfriend go hiking or picnicking
through a summer meadow. How do you find romance when the sun goes
down early and its snowing outside and there is a chill that gets
into your bones.
The best key
to cold weather romance, of course, is body heat. You both have
it. Why not share it. Being cold is an excuse to snuggle up. We
know you could just turn up the heater, but getting a blanket and
asking your boyfriend to keep you warm makes up feel more useful
in your lives, more like we are taking care of you.
Fires are always
romantic as well. If you have the luxury of having a fireplace,
use it. Turn off all the lights and warm the house with the soft
orange glow that makes it feel like the wee hours of the morning,
even when its only 8 p.m. There are, however, a few things to remember
with a fire. Make sure the flew is open. Carbon monoxide poisoning
is not romantic. Also, its harder to build a fire in a fire place
than you might think. If you live in a more urban environment where
kindling is not as easy to come by, there’s nothing wrong with springing
for the instant fire log. Also, a slow-burning, glowing fire that
you steadily add little logs to as the night wears on is far more
romantic than a raging big fire that makes the house feel like a
Going out in
the cold can be romantic as well. Typically speaking, being bundled
up under six layers of clothing is not conducive to romance. But
then again, take the opportunity to do things together. Play in
the snow together. Go ice skating together. And use the cold as
an excuse to rush back into a cozy, and romantic, apartment together.
