Your choices create your happiness.

There are thousands of choices we make everyday. Make the wrong ones and you life will not be worth being a part of. Make the right ones an your life will be abundant with love, happiness and everything you have been looking for.

1. Choose someone that is fun easy going and easily impressed. ( high maintenance  people  lack the ability  to enjoy  the simple  things in life)

2. I’m writing this in early  Autumn. What a spectacular time of year. It is so easy to spend time in the great outdoors. Take a walk…. I’m not saying strap on the joggers and power down the road. I’m saying check out a map, find a walking track along the river. Got kids?  Take them!!!! ENJOY THEM !!!!

Pick up huge leaves, hunt for cool bugs. Be inquisitive enjoy the sunshine and the brisk air. Smile, laugh about silly things.

Why is this a great plan? Well, there are so many reasons. Firstly fresh air and the outdoors make you feel more alive and ready for

something new. Seeing someone smile freely and genuinely is very attractive. If you’re a parent be an awesome parent yet another attractive and very desirable quality that one looks for in a lifetime partner.

3. Road Trip !!!!

Choose  3 small towns that are close together. In each town choose the lamest tourist destinations. Laughing is going to help you fall in love or fall back in love.

These dates are not only great for new couples but fantastic for couples that have hit a rut in their love life.

4.  Six-course dinner.

This is great fun. Meet somewhere early (6 courses takes a  while  ) This takes a little planning but well worth it..

Drinks well actually only one you have to pace your self.

Move on to a pre-dinner snack or hordervs, if you can work it in with a tappers bar that would be perfect.

Move on to somewhere new and interesting for the entree. Mix the destinations up from very Casual to classy even a cheap and cheerful is fun.

Next stop main meal. Make sure you also mix up the cuisine. Also, don’t  tell your date what is going on make the next destination a bit of a fun guessing game where you give them dodgy hints that send them in the wrong direction and laugh together until it hurts when you are busted for being dodgy.

Then we have dessert. You would think this is the romantic end of the night but no !!!! There Is More. But more about the desert. Hard Rock  Ice creamery or even a maccers  soft serve keep it fun because  it is the next course that will make or break  the date

coffee and chocolate. winner winner chicken  dinner.

It is more than likely late by now the night is winding down and if in winter this is a perfect way to End a date.

Firstly every one knows the effects of good chocolate. If you are not blessed enough to have an amazing place to have chocolate and coffee just take your own chocolates. Put some thought into it. Find out your date’s favorite asked weeks in advance if you need to. Handmade selected chocolates eaten with a story of flavor can be very sensual.

We are all adults and depending on where your relationship is up to will determine what happens next.. But whatever happens next, accept it with a gracious smile even if it means you go home alone.

5. Float down a river.

This is a must for summer. If you know me at all you will know one of the passions  is fishing. But number  5 is not a fishing date.  Floating around a bend in a river and seeing perfection is something that you need to share with someone special. I still remember one particular bend. So whenever I  drift off in a daydream there is a pretty high chance  I’m floating around that bend. (It was a pretty amazing  bend)

6. Notes

An oldie but a goodie. Notes in the fridge on the Vegemite notes on a pillow. One of the most confidence building practices in a relationship is to know that your significant other Is thinking of you when you are not there.

7. Volunteer together.

One of the things that makes me feel good about myself is helping others. I find kind genuine people attractive and thinking of someone other than your self  is a very attractive attribute.
