I went to The Hamptons last weekend.
By which I mean I rented out an East Hampton house with my high school bestie, and we alternated between long, athletic walks on Montauk Beach and stuffing our faces with lobster rolls, lobster mac & cheese, and, umm, some more lobster. Got to love the contrast....
A lot of people think of The Hamptons as "stuffy" and pretentious, but my experiences there are usually pretty down to earth--despite all the lobster!
You get such nice contrast in The Hamptons--the beach, the 'burbs, the country, and everyone from NYC, all rolled into one!
Wouldn't it be nice to be in a relationship with The Hamptons? I mean, its really (almost!) everything one's heart could desire.
Contrast is good for relationships, you know.
We are intrigued by opposite qualities in our partner--i.e. masculine and feminine energies.
Doing strikingly different things keeps the relationship dynamic fun and fresh too. Especially when its for the long term.
After all, anyone who has ever read a Match.com profile knows that there isn't a single out there who doesn't appreciate a night on the couch and a night on the town. Or someone who can rock jeans & a t shirt and a three-piece suit with a pocket square.
We like variety. (Men. I am talking especially to you!) We heart new experiences. We appreciate the light and the dark. Sometimes,we enjoy the light even more because of the dark....
So spice up you love life with some contrast, why don't you?
No matter what your relationship status, you can improve things in the romance department by embracing different parts of yourself and/or your relationship. Don't allow yourself or your relationship to be defined by any one "thing"or identity, because you are so much more than that.....
Above all, if you want success in any part of your life, don't give in to being ordinary/blah/boring/cookie-cutter/run-of-the-mill.
Because your love life could be extraordinary......
