10 Terrific Ways to be Romantic

Love may make the world go 'round, but it's romantic love that makes the ride worthwhile. We need love, but we crave romance (just like you need broccoli but you crave chocolate!). If you want to make your relationship hot and exciting this Valentine's Day, you need to increase the romance and passion. How do you do that? Practice these ten tips on your Valentine and fall in love all over again!

Keep in mind that your partner may have different ideas about how to make this Valentine's Day special. There's no right or wrong way here -- simply your way and your partner's way. Honor and respect your differences, and I promise that this alone will greatly improve your relationship -- and make this Valentine's Day one to remember.

1. Unplug: Don't spend your "prime time" watching the characters on Ally McBeal flirt and kiss. This Valentine's Day, turn up the heat at home by unplugging your TV. Put a note on the screen for your partner that says, "Turn me on instead."
