When your girlfriend is still lost in dreamland, there are many ways to awaken her in a romantic and loving way. These ideas will inspire her to feel not only romantic in the moment but also pleasant throughout the entire day, causing a ripple effect. Changing how you greet your girlfriend in the morning is also a way to break the monotony of your routine, according to Margarita Tartakovsky, associate editor of Psych Central, in the article "15 Ideas for Keeping Romance Alive Year-Round." Waking up to being romanced by her boyfriend, your girl will also be more inclined to return the romantic gesture in the future. It's a win-win situation.
Show your girlfriend how much you adore her by snuggling up to her and whispering sweet-nothings in her ear. Hearing "I love you," or "I'm glad you are in my life" or "This day is beautiful because of you," whispered into her ear will have her awake and grinning ear-to-ear in no time. Moments like this can also help the two of you avoid losing desire for one another by encouraging an element of surprise and adventure in your relationship, according to the article, "The Psychology Behind Love and Romance, " published on South Shore, a publication of South University.
Wake her up to the smell of her favorite breakfast. On the tray, have a bouquet of her favorite flowers. Take one and lightly outline her face and body with it to gently arouse her from her sleep. When she begins to awaken, gently kiss her lips, cheeks, nose and eyelids as you tell her what she means to you. Proceed to feed her breakfast in bed.
Put on your favorite love song. This could be "your song," perhaps the one you danced together to for the first time or the one that just reminds you of each other. Gently rub her back and kiss her. Once awake, hand her a mimosa or orange juice in a champagne glass and toast to the start of another day loving each other. To increase the romance, ask her to dance.
Tap lightly on the bedroom door or headboard to arouse your girlfriend from her slumber. With a bouquet of roses or other flowers she enjoys in your hand, profess your love for her. Not only is this a wonderful way to wake up, it will also help to strengthen your loving bond.
