True love, like any other strong and addicting drug, is boring—once the tale of encounter and discovery is told, kisses quickly grow stale and caresses tiresome…except, of course, to those who share the kisses, who give and take the caresses while every sound and color of the world seems to deepen and brighten around them. As with any other strong drug, true first love is really only interesting to those who have become its prisoners.
And, as is true of any other strong and addicting drug, true first love is dangerous.

Visit a zen buddist stone garden:

There may not be too many of these close at hand but the best one we are aware of is the Ryo-anji temple in Kyoto, Japan. Incredibly peaceful stone garden.

Hot stone massage:

Go together and both experience a hot stone massage. The hot stones are used to help relax and warm you so that the masseuse can give you a more enjoyable experience.

Spin him round:

Buy him his favourite ever record on vinyl along with a frame for the wall that you can put the record in. If you do not have a record player then you have a work of art on the wall and a nostalgic investment. Maybe get the record player next year to put it to good use.


To get the full value of a joy you must have somebody to divide it with.
