5 things a man needs to remember

v_0067_Layer 34

Name

It’s vital that you remember your name. When you hear her say he or him, she’s talking about you. When she says your name, she’s talking to you.

Birthday

Not your birthday, hers. She may not want to discuss her age but her birthday is the most important date on the calendar. Make sure it’s in yours with a reminder alert.

Anniversary

This is your second opportunity for displaying your romantic nature every year – you don’t want to miss it. This is another date to mark in your calendar with a reminder alert.

Planning

Patience may be a virtue but if you want to avoid the frustration of waiting, plan ahead and have something to do – while she’s doing whatever it is that takes so long whenever she’s getting ready.

Listen

If you manage to remember your name, when you hear her say it, give her your undivided attention – and no interrupting. This is how you really show her that she is important to you.

 

Thanks for dropping by, Peter

Forty years

Forty years is a long time – by some reckonings.

It represents a continuous span of 14,600 days.

On reflection, it seems I have had a lot of opportunities for expressing love, since we got married on the 11th of May 1975.

I know I missed a few of those opportunities.

Today isn’t one of them.

Forty years is a long time to devote to one relationship.

I’m glad we have – and continue to do so.

Toni, thank you for that ‘magic day’ forty years ago and for the 14,600 days since.

I love you, Peter.
