Happy New Year from all of us at Brookline Booksmith! We are open and ready for browsing!
Are you missing the butterflies and giddiness you felt when you first started dating? We know for a fact that the relationship fairy tale is alive, well and available to you now through the Surprise Date Challenge. World renown psychologist Esther Perel reminds us, "Love is a vessel that contains both security and adventure, and commitment offers one of the great luxuries of life: time. Marriage is not the end of romance, it is the beginning." Couples never go into a romantic relationship believing they will succumb to becoming a divorce statistic. Regardless of the reasons, we know that 1/2 of relationships end that result in pain and despair affecting not just the individuals, but children, family members, friends and colleagues.
The Surprise Date Challenge provides couples just starting out, newlyweds, or those that have been together for many years with the love recipe to foster a long-term relationship by adding novelty through planning monthly surprise dates for each other. The secret elixir is not anything magical, but simply planning one surprise date monthly that significantly makes deposits into your Love Bank Account to offset any of the relationship challenges that we all inevitably face.
The Surprise Date Challenge provides a year of surprise dates that add mystery and adventure that not only don't cost a lot of money but can be completed at home. Best of all, we know from experience the surprise dates will add passion and romance while increasing communication and connection. As Tony Robbins points out, "Do what you did in the beginning of a relationship and there won't be an end."
