Romance Wednesday: Catering To My Spouse
Ladies, I know that we love to get pampered. Most of us have biweekly appointments at the hair salon, weekly appointments at the nail shop and monthly visits fot the spa. We also like being pampered by our spouses. Whether it’s a new purse, jewelry or a surprise dinner to your favorite restaurant, we expect these things to be done on a regular basis. Well, what about our spouses?
Men like to be pampered or catered to as well. Like many women, I was under the misunderstanding that men weren’t really into receiving a lot of attention. I thought that as long as you kept their stomachs full and happy in the bedroom it was all good. Not so. In fact, I discovered that my husband’s love language was to be showered with attention. Again, I think this goes back his childhood and not being shown attention or much love by his parents and then ending up in foster care.
Anyways, one of the first things I did for my husband was take him to a Miami Heat game back in 2007. Being originally from Miami, I knew he was a huge fan. And I didn’t just get any tickets either. I got us court side tickets. We were only two rows from being on the floor. Yea, the tickets were expensitve but once I added up all the dinners, movies, hair salon visits and trips to nail salon he’d footed the bill for, it was quite a small fortune.
I still remember the look of excitement on his face when I told him that I had gotten him tickets to the game. His face lit up like a kid in a candy store whose parents said go crazy, the bill is on us. LOL. No one had ever taken the time to really pay enough attention to things that he liked. I learned that catering to my husband was more than just serving him a home cooked meal. It means catering to all his needs and most of his wants. It means showing him the attention that he deserves.
Think about it. When was the last time you catered to your spouse outside the kitchen or bedroom?
