Unique ways of expressing love to your partner.

There are many ways in which we can express our love for those dearest to us but few people come up with unique and interesting ideas to do so. Below I have listed some of the most popular and creative ways to show your loved one how much you really care, in the most original way possible.
  • Love Letter
  • Cuddle
  • Always Listen
  • Spend Time Together
  • Cook For Them
  • Write Them A Poem/Song
  • Dedicate A Song To Them
  • Take A Bath Together
  • Go See A Movie Together
  • Whisper I Love You Into Their Ear
  • Give Them A Backward Hug
  • Sing To Them (Even If You Can’t)
  • Take A Shower Together
  • Do All Of The Housework
  • Stroll Along The Beach Together
  • Go Horse Riding Together
  • Candlelit Dinner
  • Watch Sunsets & Sunrises Together
  • Chocolates
  • Teddy Bears
  • Roses
  • Mushy Greeting Cards
  • Use Pet Names
  • Propose!
Perhaps the latter on that list isn’t essential, especially if you are not that far into your relationship yet to be making such decisions. Either way, the above ideas are a must if you’re looking to spice things up and make your loved one fall for you over and over and over again. Choose the ways that work for you and don’t do something you just couldn’t handle, they will know how serious or you are. Best of luck in life and happy romancing!

Those first lines that seem so hard to come up with!

1. As she walked silently through the village, not a sound could be heard other than the echo her boots made as they came into contact with the pebbles beneath her feet.

2. Staring longingly into her ocean blue eyes caught him in a trance and no matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t turn his gaze elsewhere.

3. Worrying over the events of yesterday had her feeling drained and lifeless, knowing what she had said was heartless.

4. Although his heart was broken, he knew deep down that she still loved him and he would give everything he had to try and win her back.

5. Destiny had always been but a dream to her as she made her way through life without someone who cared.

6. A hand reached out to help her up from the unfortunate position she had gotten herself into after slipping on the rock coated with seaweed.

7. A positive attitude set a bright aura around her as she always saw the upside in even the worst situations.

8. Not being one to turn down such an offer, he grabbed the last ticket on sale and raced into the arena.  

9. Silence filled the surrounding area and all they could think of was to turn around and go back the way they came, through the chilling dark forest.

10. Memories of her past life flashed through her mind and had her wondering what if time travel was really possible.

Music that inspires creativeness!

Sometimes it helps a writer to have music playing quietly in the background to help inspire ideas. Others find sound too distracting whilst writing as each have their own ways of getting into the writing mood. It is often only music with vocals that distract us from what we are supposed to be doing, so why not try classical or instrumental tracks? You never know what will help unless you give it a try and this for me has been one of the best ideas to help move along your creative thoughts.
  • Boadicea ~ Enya
  • Teardrop ~ Massive Attack
  • Injection ~ Hans Zimmer
  • That Next Place ~ Thomas Newman
  • In The Death Car ~ Iggy Pop
  • Calling All Angels ~ Jane Siberry
  • Sweet Disposition ~ The Temper Trap
  • Unchained Melody ~ Orchestral Version
  • Pain Song ~ The Cure
  • The Song Of The Sun ~ Mike Oldfield
  • Sunchyme ~ Dario G
  • Wicked Game ~ Chris Isaak
  • Wild Signals ~ Close Encounters
  • Wind Song ~ Mighty Joe Young
  • Hallelujah ~ Jeff Buckley
  • Wonderful Tonight ~ Eric Clapton
  • Pure Imagination ~ Gene Wilder
  • Launch ~ Trevor Rabin
  • One More Chance ~ Michael Jackson
  • Caravan ~ Rachel Portman
  • Silence ~ Dubstep
  • To The Stars ~ Randy Edelman
  • Hymn To The Sea ~ James Horner
  • Escape/Chase/Saying Goodbye ~ John Williams 
There are many other musical compositions to choose from as everyone has different taste in what sounds good and what will actually help someone write. As for the music listed above, each have helped me countless times to come up with storylines and keep the story flowing without pauses or breaks between. Once again, it depends on your style of writing and what works best for you and how you go about becoming inspired. Music can also be a good idea when writing poetry.

    List of the most awkward and horrible personality traits that cost people friends, loved ones and even jobs.

    Judger:
    A judger is someone who is constantly picking at faults in others and can’t see beyond their own ignorant thoughts. Given that they are ignorant just adds to the harshness of this personality trait and no matter how many times you tell them they are rude, they don’t change their ways. It is one of the most ugly traits a person could have.

    Nagger:
    A nagger is someone who is always talking about one thing in particular and doesn’t drop it until you either accept what they have said or take notice and respond to it how they would like you to. Aside from being highly annoying, this personality trait is often brought on by love and care. If they see something wrong that needs fixing, they will nag until it is.

    Aggressor:
    An aggressor is someone who has a whole load of built up frustration and more often than not will take it out on those nearby at the time. Whether or not you are acquainted with this person does not matter at all to them. As it goes, if they are having a bad day they feel you should also share some of that burden. People like this sometimes don’t know how to react and instead, do so angrily.

    Neophobe:
    A neophobe is someone who absolutely cannot stand change and would do anything at all to avoid it. I actually have a few issues myself with change as I like being used to what I already know. Change can be either good or bad and sometimes it becomes too much for being to handle. As with myself, I am slowly adapting to the fact that change is necessary. More people should do the same.

    Narcissist:
    A narcissist is someone who spends all their time letting others know how wonderful they are and generally protecting their ego. They are completely selfish and couldn’t really care less about anyone or anything that is going on around them. Why would they care when they have themselves to worry about above everyone else? Above all the problems in the world?. A horrible trait to have.
    Liar:
    A liar is clearly someone who finds lies as an easy escape route or sometimes will lie out of pure amusement. A lie to these people will slip out so easily you will not know whether or not they are telling the truth. I have come across many liars in my life so far and am certain I will come across a few more. They make terrible friends and to marry a liar.. that would be one hell of a relationship.

    Juvenile:
    A juvenile person is someone who is incredibly immature for their age and it can become seriously irritating if you know someone with this trait. Although it is not always preventable due to underlying reasons with some, for others it is just a nast habit of acting a lot like a child. There is a huge difference between being childlike and being childish. Those who are childish need to sort themselves out.

    Manipulator:
    A manipulator is someone who just loves to take control of nearly every situation they find themselves in. Even if the situation does not involve them they like to take the lead and try to run the place. There are so many people in the world with this personality trait that it would take forever to list them. However, people who are part of and work for the government are very manipulative.

    There are plenty of other horrid personality traits but the ones above are the ones that I have come across the most in my life. Do you feel that there are others in particular that are not included above? If so, please leave your opinion in a comment below!
