Do you ever get the feeling that life isn’t turning out the way it’s supposed to? Especially when it comes to romance. You go on dates or commit to a relationship, but it’s not how you imagined it. Don’t worry, it’s not your fault! It’s how we grew up. Fairy tales, romance novels, and romantic comedies have given us certain expectations of our love lives. They inspire us, guide us, and ultimately disappoint us because that’s not how things work in the real world. Most people would tell you to give up and accept reality. Not me! If you want your romantic life to change, it’s up to you to change it. So here are a few suggestions on how to add a little magic to your everyday. Inspired, of course, by the stories that inspire us all.
