Sexy Tech: Use Technology To Spice Up Your Relationship
-HAPPY VALENTINES DAY FROM NERDS ON CALL
I’ll admit it: I’ve never been much of a romantic.I love spending time with my hubby, going out to dinner and a movie, or just curling up on the couch to watch a movie together, but I’ve never been very creative in thinking up ideas to “spice things up.”
This Valentine’s Day, I resolved to use my tech resources to think outside the box. Here are some places you can go for ideas to put a little fire into your relationship.
The Dating Divas
My first stop was a visit to “The Dating Divas“. Their motto is, “strengthening marriages, one date at a time,” and that’s exactly what they aim to help you do.
Each Monday, the Divas offer a completely planned “date night” suggestion that you can put into action the next weekend. A tour through the “Date Night” tab revealed ideas that spanned from simple to intricate, and can accommodate just about any budget and energy level. Throughout the week they post creative, inexpensive and innovative ideas for romance with your spouse, from planning family outings to ideas to spice up your more intimate moments.
You’ll find tons of links to blog articles on marriage help, craft projects, birthday and anniversary ideas, gift tips and much, much more. You can follow them on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, or subscribe to their free “Love Notes” newsletter, which includes free stuff every month.
Happily Ever After
Next, I found a way to write him a custom romance novel. No, really! At Happily Ever Afters you fill in the blanks for the character names you’d like to include in your story, and it does the rest.
There are several free e-books to choose from. You’ll find inspirational novels, and you choose the direction you’d like the story to go. I liked the Personalized Romance version, which allowed me to “write” my own Summer Romance Story in seconds. It was a little cheesy, but that’s what putting the spark back is all about, right? It’ll make you and your partner smile together.
If you’re looking to ramp it up a notch, check out Your Novel where you can be the star in your own personalized
romance novel. From mild to wild, they have tons of categories from “A Cruise Romance” to “African Safari.” You provide all the details (including such things as hair and eye color, names, town where you live and favorite cologne) and they put it together for you in a paperback, hardback or e-book. Prices range from $20 for an e-book novella to up to $100 for a full-fledged hardback version, plus shipping and handling. The books are highly customizable, with the ability to add your own photo to the cover and even write entire pages (at additional cost), so you can really make the story about you and your love.
Adam And Eve
Finally, no Valentine’s tips would be complete without resources to spice it up in the bedroom. Adam and Eve is the largest and oldest retailer of adult products in the United States, for all things you can imagine after dark. Caution parents: check out this website after the kiddos have gone to bed.
From lingerie to adult toys and movies, you’ll find everything you can imagine here. Adam and Eve takes pride in its
customer service, and above all privacy ’97 anything shipped to you is packaged discreetly so your neighbors will never know you’re exploring your marriage’s wild side.
