Romance is in the air: August is Romance Month!
August 1st, 2012
Yes, it seems there is a month or day celebrating absolutely everything (you did party for National Horseradish month in July, didn’t you?). But August celebrates something I can really get behind – romance.
Don’t confuse seduction with romance. Seduction is a journey to a specific destination (sex). Romance is a gesture of love or affection (which can frequently, but not always, lead to sex).
Romantic gestures evolve throughout a relationship. Where flowers, candlelight and wine seem particularly romantic at the beginning of a relationship, turning off the TV and having an uninterrupted conversation is swoon-inducing once you’ve had children. So let’s meet somewhere in the middle.
Romance is private jokes, holding hands, kissing hello and kissing goodbye. Romance doesn’t require extra money or extra time; it just requires your full attention. And yes, flowers and jewelry are wonderfully romantic, but so is sitting together in a quiet bubble bath and talking about your day.
As the unofficial sponsors of Romance Month, Masque will be doing a little romancing of our own. Check out our Facebook page daily, http://www.facebook.com/YourMasque, for tips on how to woo your partner the entire month of August.
