Romance on a Shoestring

The hero in my current work-in-progress has money problems, and his marriage is suffering because he is working such long hours.

A romantic date

Sometimes it’s difficult to make a dollar stretch to cover necessities, let alone having enough to spare for romance. But that doesn’t mean romance needs to take a back seat. Here are some ideas to keep the romance alive that won’t hurt the budget.

Inexpensive Ideas to Keep the Romance Alive

1. Write a love letter to your sweetie.

2. Make a special romance pack. You could include a special music playlist, a candle, bubble bath or scented lotion, massage oil.

3. Turn on some romantic music and  slow dance together.

4. Take a picnic to the park and play on the swings.

5. Watch the sunrise or sunset.

6. Swap babysitting services with a family member or friend. Make a nice dinner at home, watch a movie and enjoy the togetherness without the kids. Christen every room in the house…if you catch my drift.

7. Read a sexy romance together

8. Make an at-home dinner special with candles. Add soft, romantic music.

9. Go for a walk in the countryside.

10. Sit outside on a nice evening and star-gaze.

11. Surprise your partner with a lunch date during the working week.

12. Kiss before you part for the day—a proper kiss that will make the pulse-rate pound!

Do you have any other suggestions for my poor cash-strapped hero?

    I was going to add for him to make dinner for you but it’s already there. That’s always been my favorite.

    I think cooking dinner is a nice thing to do. Really thoughtful. I certainly love it when hubby decides to cook. He produces some wonderful meals.
