Virtual Cards Grow While Marriages Decline, so ‘Get Your Girl Back’

With virtual Valentine’s Day cards a growing trend, it is demonstrative of how little effort people put into their relationships. Traci Bild, creator of the Get Your Girl Back movement, offers straight talk to men and women who hope to fuel the flames of love this Valentine’s Day.

Passionately in love for 20+ years to the same man, her advice is tried and true and virtual cards, in her opinion, are unacceptable. Here are just a few of her other tips for creating love that lasts:

 1. Adventure Night: Forget dinner and a movie! Turn date night into adventure night by doing things that are fun, foster laughter and real connection. Consider a comedy club, dancing, a cooking class, or sledding (all less expensive than dinner & a movie).

 2. Team Up: While you might do things better, odds are your husband wants to help, so let him and lavish complements often (don’t worry, he will reciprocate).

 3. Tough Talk: Don’t shy away from the tough topics that are eating at your relationship. Ask for ideas on how to resolve them and share your willingness to work through them openly.

 4. Slow Dance: It’s impossible to stay mad when slow dancing with the one you love. You will immediately start to smile, laugh and enter a better place.

 5. Vacation- Alone! It’s okay to leave the kids behind for a short vacation. Go ahead, book that weekend trip and eventually a trip to Italy or France together. The kids will have a great role model of how a healthy marriage should be.

 6. Dream Together: Find out what dreams your partner has and be sure to offer encouragement. Better yet, find a dream you can pursue together for an immediate spark to reignite the relationship.
