How to keep that hooked hottie

What a great week we've had here with the launch of Tina's new book, HOW TO HOOK A HOTTIE! If you haven't run out to get your own copy, keep reading as I'm doing a giveaway today.

We've had a lot of great advice on hooking your own hottie, so I thought I'd help wrap up with some tips on keeping that hooked hottie.

1. Keep in Touch: What's better than walking down the hallway at school hand in hand or with your arms around each other? Keeping in touch with your hottie churns up feel-good hormones and keeps the affection alive and kickin'.

2. Keep Talking: Don't monopolize every conversation. Sharing what's on your mind is the best way to keep the relationship going. Let him tell you what he's thinking.

3. Keep it Real: Neither you nor your hottie are perfect in every way, although we'd like to think so. (LOL!) Don't look at his flaws or quirks or things that might annoy. Realize it's those things that make him real...human.

4. Keep Who You Are: While you've got that hottie hooked, don't forget your friends. They're just as important as he is. Make sure you still have lunch and shopping outings with your friends and don't completely abandon them just to spend time with him. It'll make your time with him all that much better.

5. Keep Being a Good Date: Don't get in the dinner and movie rut. Keep dates fresh. Plan secret things for you and your hottie. Try an extreme sport. Take in a museum. Go to a hockey game. Think of fun and creative things you can do together that keeps the relationship fresh and alive.

So, for today's giveaway of Tina Ferraro's HOW TO HOOK A HOTTIE, post your advice on how to keep your hooked hottie. Winner will be announced on Wednesday!

Great blog, and thanks so much for offering up a copy of my book to a commenter. Good luck, everyone...

my tip would be to compromise. because no matter how much you like someone you're never going to agree with everything! it can even be something simple like picking a movie. yes perhaps you don't want to watch an action/blow everything up movie, but think of all the chick flicks he goes to for you! compromise.

I'm going to Barnes & Noble right now to go get Hottie! Thanks for the post, I feel even when you're married you get into the dinner/movie rut. I'm all up for going to a hockey game (and in the summer we love going to soccer games!)
Best, Simone

My tip would be to find something you both enjoy doing -- like watching movies. And have a night set up to do just that. Like a Friday Movie Night or something. That way you'll always have something to look forward to, and it's an added commitment.

i agree with most of what you said, especially the part about being yourself

some advice...hmm, always be yourself was a good one, because that is VERY important! Also, you can't be overly obsessive about certain small problems, if you're meant for each other these problems will work themselves out in time anyways! And most importantly, never settle for something when you deserve better!

oh and please enter me into the contest! i would love to read this book!

My advice for keeping a hottie hooked is to always take your partner's feelings into consideration. Don't just blow them off because their feelings aren't the same as yours.

my tip:
Don't expect everything to turn out perfectly. It just makes everything seem like a competition and makes every situation feel pressured. Just let things happen. Enjoy yourself!

Be spontaneous. It keeps your hottie on his toes, and always guessing. I hooked my hottie about 8 years ago, and even though we know everything about each other I still have some tricks up my sleeve. Sometimes my spontaneity leaves my husband and I giggling for weeks about the fun wild time we had.

My tip is to be honest about your feelings and never lie about them because otherwise it may cause problems later on if you're dishonest and your partner finds out.

Find one passion you both share. It doesn't have to be big or earth-shattering- just something you both have in common. If you can share one passion, it will take you through awkward times. For example, my hottie and I are tital opposites, but we both love sci-fi. When things looky on the romance front, we go see a good sci-fi flick. It gives us something to talk and laugh about.
