If I've said it one, I've said it a million times: we have an epidemic of passion-less relationships today.
You would be amazed by the number of good, loving people who find themselves in committed relationships in which the passion has fizzled! Many people roll their eyes and say that this is just the "way it is". But ask anyone who is in a passion-less relationship and they will tell you it's no joke. When you don't experience passion with your intimate partner, it can feel like you are dying inside. And that makes sense: you are losing your life-force! Maybe you are like so many people who feel that the kids, househould maintenance and work take up so much of your time and energy that you can't find your way back to the passion and excitement you once had.

Perhaps you have no idea what happened to it, or if it's even possible to reignite. In reality, there is a reason why the passion fizzled.
Love comes from "sameness", or the things we have in common. The natural progression of a committed relationship is that we eventually have more and more in common with our partner, which is fantastic! It's great for friendship, which is the foundation for love. But you know what it's not so great for? Passion!
Passion, on the other hand, comes from "differences". When we first meet our partner, there are lots of differences, so the chemistry is high and we have lots of passion. But love and passion work like a see-saw. As we dive deeper and deeper into lasting, real love, the passion element tends to disappear.
Here's the good news: it doesn't have to be that way. You can create a height of passion to match the depth of your love. Passion, in a committed relationship, doesn't just happen to you; you must create it! And what's even better: there are tools and strategies that really work to reignite that passion and take your intimacy to levels that far exceed the excitement you had when you were first dating.
Want to hear a secret? The only difference between your best friend and your intimate partner is sex! Sex is not optional in a magnificent love affair! Don't settle for just "hanging out" together.
When you reignite that passion and unleash the ravishing and satisfying intimacy you desire, you will feel alive again! The energy, authenticity, spark, and life-force that comes from living every day with this fiery lifestyle with your intimate partner can't be surpassed by anything else in your life.
You have decades to go with this partner, my darling, so why not make every year magnificent? There is a proven step-by-step formula, tools, and strategies that really work to create this ravishing and satisfying intimacy with your partner.
You deserve to live every day with energy, vibrancy and passion. And once you create it, it will last you your lifetime... every fiery, exciting moment.
