SMALL Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here are a few ideas to consider when preparing for Valentine's Day:

1. Be creative. Anyone can buy a greeting card. How about buying a card with no message and writing one of your own?
2. Plan ahead. Plan to spend some time together; away from the phone, TV, etc. The Hilton Hotels feature a special "Romantic Weekend Get-away." For more information, click here:
3. Surprises work! When dining out, make arrangements to have the waitress bring your gift and card to the table.
4. Guys, make a promise! Inside her Valentine card, write a note that says, "I love you and to prove it, I promise to give up the TV remote for 30 days! That'll be a real stretch for some of you.
5. Make a recording. Write a special "I love you" message, record it on a cassette and put in in your sweetheart's car cassette player.
6. Go the extra mile. Buy a stack of Valentine cards and send one everyday during the month of February.
7. Think BIG. On your computer, create a colorful banner (with hearts, etc.), print it and put it on the front of your garage door so your sweetheart (and the neighbors) will know she is loved.
8. Be playful. Buy some colorful sidewalk chalk and write, "Happy Valentine's Day! I love you" inside a red heart on your driveway!
9. Be Loving! Promise to tell your sweetheart, "I love you" (out loud) at least once each day.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  A kiss has been described as the height of voluptuousness. It has a lovely, luscious and lusty legacy. Kissing is an act of quiet intimacy and often borders on the erotic. It can be brief and cool or lengthy and hot. It can be highly romantic, building to a succulent crescendo of emotion and passion or passed off as something that is expected and therefore no big deal.

Two pairs of lips are for kissing. It is an essential element for communicating love and affection in your relationship. A kiss speaks many different meanings to its lover; when it is missing, many interpretations as to the reasons for its absence surface. These interpretations can become invisible wedges that prevent love from expressing. When love is present, kissing is an important part of expressing that love. Pay attention to it. Kissing does not always have to be a prelude to making love.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  There is power in a hug. Hugs bring people together. This expression of human touch can silently speak forgiveness, sensitivity, acceptance, caring, healing and love.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  For Women Only - When you feel your love partner lagging behind in the relationship, it is often difficult to back away from what seems to be a responsibility to assist him. Smothering your lover with attempts to help can give the appearance that you think he is unable to make his own responsible choices.

No one can change anything without the freedom to do so. Smothering feels like "no freedom" to a man. Your energy will soon be depleted if your love partner has little desire to change. Nurture him with your love and support. Be there when he needs someone to listen. Only offer help when it is requested.

LoveNote for Lovers. . .  Affirmation For Men Only - I always remember that more often than not, when my love partner wants to talk, she only wants someone to listen and not to dispense advice. She does NOT need a "Mr. Fix-it!"

From the book, LoveNotes for Lovers: Words That Make Music for Two Hearts Dancing by Larry James.

Happy Val Day!

My husband never celebrates Valentine's Day. He's not romantic, and it makes me feel lonely, and less loved. What can I do?
