So I’ve decided to undertake 5 couples exercises, for Jay and I to do and for me to blog about for you.I’ve scoured the internet and bribed Jay to do this with me. Each exercise will last 1-2 weeks, testing it out and letting you know what is mumbo jumbo and what isn’t.
This week’s Couple’s Exercise was something I hear from Montana Dennis, which was 20 positive touches a day can improve a relationship. He uses this technique with his couples (I do too now!) and I thought, “hey, what if this worked in every day life too??” which lead me to spending the past week incorporating this into our relationship.
So positive touches could be, but not limited to:
- hand holding
- kisses on the cheek
- kisses on the hand
- ear nibbles
- foot rubs
- massage in general
- a soapy shower together
- eskimo kisses
- sexy time (duh)
- tickles (to a certain degree)
- playing with hair
Jay and I have different ideas about physical affection. Surprisingly, I’m not as affectionate as him, partly because I’m pulled into so many directions that even a kiss seems tedious. This was REALLY good for us, because it required me to focus on making sure I reached that 20 and then some. Jay’s Love Tank has been empty, so this was a great way to start our journey living together.
And in case you were wondering, we never danced together. But I’m determined to teach him to two-step!
And because everything is better with a pretty picture…
