10 Most Romantic Spots in Madrid

ROMANTIC MADRID SPOTS

Forget Paris, This is The New City of Love

The Spanish capital city is the perfect location for a weekend of eating, sightseeing and some serious romance.

Madrid is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and it’s the ideal place for a little romance. After all, it’s a city full of stunning architecture, great restaurants and world class hotels – the perfect backdrop to any romantic getaway. So if you’re planning to take a trip to the Spanish capital, where should you head to if you’re trying to woo that special someone? Our definitive guide covers ten of the city’s most romantic locations to help you out.

Templo de Debod

If you’re trying to impress the lady in your life, then visit the Templo de Debod. This Egyptian temple is set in some stunning grounds. Head there at sunset, where the sun reflects off of the water and the whole place has a really magical aura.

Parque El Capricho

Parque El Capricho is the perfect spot for a romantic stroll. The park is filled with grottos, fountains, shrines and little spots where you can just sit together and forget the whole world. If you want some escapism, this is the place to go.

Botín

It’s the oldest restaurant in the world – and Botín really is an experience in itself. Book ahead to get a table in the incredible vaulted cellar, where you can really soak up that famous atmosphere. The food is great too – try the suckling pig!

Hotel Ritz

Want to spend the night in incredible luxury? Then book a room at the Hotel Ritz. Here you’ll find chandeliers and silk bed canopies along with incredible food and spa facilities. If you’re feeling flush, this is the hotel for you.

Teatro Real

If you’re a fan of music, take your date to the Teatro Real, Madrid’s beautiful opera house. Here you can watch some incredible opera performances, as well as classical recitals and ballets. There’s nothing more romantic than some beautiful music, after all.

Hotel Orfila

A lovely family run hotel, Hotel Orfila makes up for what it lacks in size with plenty of character. The rooms are opulently decorated, and the beautiful courtyard garden is the perfect place to sit together in the sunshine sipping on a glass of wine.

Al Trapo

Al Trapo serves up food by one of the country’s most talented chefs, Paco Morales. The food here is reasonably priced, and the location is fantastic (perfect for couples on a budget!) The star dish is the braised oxtail stew with sea snails and polenta gnocchi.

Filmoteca Espanola

A trip to the cinema is surely the most popular kind of date. Filmoteca Espanola is far from your standard multiplex though. A beautifully restored Art Nouveau building, it’s a beautiful place to watch a romantic movie together.

Ramon Freixa Madrid

Ramon Freixa Madrid has two Michelin Stars, so it’s one for the foodies. The menu is always changing, but you can always rely on top-class service alongside the incredible cooking. Make sure you dress up – eating here truly is a special occasion.

Principal Madrid

If its great views you’re after, then stay at The Principal Madrid. With a roof terrace that allows you to look out over the rooftops of the city from comfy chairs, it’s certainly in a great location. It’s a sleek, stylish place to stay – and will definitely wow the lady in your life.

Finding the right company

As you can see, Madrid is the perfect place for a loved-up getaway. If you’re single but still want to see the romantic side of the city, why not hire an escort in Madrid? Some beautiful company could make your romantic weekend much more fun – and you can arrange seeing her around any other commitments. It’s the best of both worlds. So why not discover what makes Madrid one of the most romantic destinations in the world? You certainly won’t regret it.

6 keys to keeping your marriage alive

Keeping your marriage alive

Being married and especially for many years is not so easy thing because passion and fire it’s difficult to stay alive… Even though when you commit to one another that’s usually the intention, after a few years or even months, the “fire” sometimes dwindles and may even go out completely. You have to make many concessions and you have to be quite patient…

Here we look at just some of the secrets and relationship tips on how to keep the love and passion in a relationship alive long after the fire, for many, would have gone out:

1. Stoke the fire with some thoughtful gifts.

Don’t let the exchanging of gifts just become a birthday and Christmas routine. When you’re out shopping, keep one eye out for something he’d like and buy it on the spur of the moment. It doesn’t need to be something expensive; it really is the thought that counts.

2. Have some fun in the bedroom.

Relationship tips would be incomplete without intimacy talk. Don’t let your intimate moments get boring. Buy a book or google for some ideas. Some of the positions will give you a good laugh, at least, if nothing else!

3. Go on a date.

Don’t get stuck in the same old routine and go out on a date together now and then. Book a romantic meal for two and finish the night with some champagne in front of the fire at home. You’re never too old for a bit of old fashioned romance.

4. Focus on the things that make him great.

Things for which you first fell in love with him, so that the flavor of his socks and flatulence won’t seem so bad!

5. Make time to talk.

We all know that good communication is the key to a healthy and happy relationship. Put aside some time for talking and concentrate on what you’re talking about. It’s not just about half listening to what he has to say, while you do the chores; it’s about sitting down together, looking each other in the eyes and really discussing things.

6. Just be there for one another.

Let your partner know that, whatever happens, you’ll be there for him. Ask what you can do to make his life better today and work together to make both of your lives just that tiny little bit better each and every day.

7 Tips to Keep the Romance Alive In Your Relationship

Trust Me It's Not You - 7 tips to keep the romance alive in your relationship

In relationships, it is so important to keep the romance alive. When the romance between two partners begins to die down, the relationship often follows that decline. Below are 7 tips to keep the romance alive in your relationship and not let it fizzle out!

1. Date Night:

Having a regular date night with your partner is one of the best things you can do for each other. Even if it is once a week, or once every other week, it is a way to continually make time for each other, connect, and keep the spark going.

2. Keep Laughing:

I have always found that humor is one of the best parts of a relationship. Laughing together is a way to keep things happy and fun. When you and your partner no longer have fun together, that is usually a sign that relationship satisfaction is declining. It is important to not be too serious all the time. Find fun things to do that make you both laugh and grow your connection.

3. Go on a Vacation:

Now, a vacation is something that couples can’t do all the time because of work and finances, but when you can, get a vacation in with your partner! Going on vacation together creates new memories and experiences together that you can look back on and share. You also learn a lot about someone when you travel together, and usually become a lot closer.

4. Don’t Stop Communicating:

To keep the romance alive, make sure you always communicate with your partner. That applies to communication about your relationship, as well as life in general. If you continually share things with your partner, you grow closer and that romance will be able to grow as well.

5. Make Decisions as a Team:

Making a decision with the support of your partner is really important. This way, it shows them that you value their opinion, and then in turn the relationship. Valuing a partner and the relationship is very romantic, and that is sure to keep your spark alive.

6. Compliment Each Other:

No matter how long you and your partner have been together, it is important to still compliment each other and remind one another that you love them and feel lucky to be with them. A compliment from you to your partner goes a long way.

7. Do Your Own Things:

Now, all of the tips before have centered around you AND your partner, but this tip is a little different. It is a really good idea to do your own things sometimes, get your own space, and give you partner their own space. This way, you can have a little alone time, and you can miss each other a bit. This also allows you and your partner to keep your own freedom and individuality, and not feel like you always have to be joined at the hip.

I hope you found these tips useful and that they keep your spark going! Until next time be sure to follow me on my blog and on Twitter!

Multi Girlfriend Skills that Translate to Prosperous Living

PROSPEROUS LIVING

 

There are 4 skills that apply in business and life that a man acquires when he succeeds in maintaining great rapport with multiple girlfriends in his life. How to actually pull this off next to drama free is a story for another day. Right now, I want you to consider the skills it takes and why they will be sharpened by managing several girlfriends at once, like no other avenue for learning can provide.
1. Time Management (powerful men are deliberate men)
2. Honest communication with self and others. (gotta love ’em all the same or cut ’em loose)
3. Ability to discern between exercising discretion and being secretive (no double living)
4. Wise with distribution of resources (your attention is your most valuable resource)

It is simply true that… Whoever is the most attractive in the relationship is in charge. What does attractive mean? It means whoever brings the most value and sense of entitlement gets the veto power.  Hopefully, this sense if value is mutual, thus there is a healthy play of balance between the parties involved, no matter what type of relationship arrangement it is.

In a sexual relationship it is especially important that one person isn’t lording power over the other if things are to go well and have a long term potential for on-going sexy. If one or the other person feels his or her value is greater or less than the other over a period of time, this is dysfunctional and that is not what I mean by being attractive. Nor is that what it means to be successful in life and love.

It is also true that…
Men, at their core, are designed to lead with their desire, and women are designed to desire guidance from high quality men.

An attractive man will hold the sexual power with his woman. In other words, his woman is consistently motivated to be in a state of desire, to be led by him, if her man is a very deliberate and respectable.

Men that have real charisma and the SKILL SET to have a harem (even if they never actually run one), but are CHOOSING to be with one special girl, are considered the most attractive, powerful, and sought after, thus THEY always hold the sexual attention of their women.

The skill set a man needs to be successful in a committed long term relationship can be learned through successful management of several women at once. This multi girlfriend skill set is the EXACT skills (plus a few) he will need to navigate his way successfully through a long term relationship with one special girl.

By success I mean he will know how to build rather than kill attraction over a lifetime which translates to:

  •  Sex as often as he likes
  •  Able to keep an enthusiastic (not obligatory nor dull) sex partner
  •  A master of time management
  •  Leads with loving intent as a lifestyle, which creates abundance vs. lack
  •  Be unflappable when faced with female drama (test passing)
  •  Becomes solid in his sense of personal value
  •  Has direct experience with being very deliberate with his attention and experience that is like catnip or      kryptonite to any and all women
  •  Ability to give over energy only to those that meet his standards, thus he is never drained and has reserves left    over for the important things
  •  Embodies true confidence in his very being and work life
  •  Holds himself in high esteem as do his male peers
  •  Women respect him,are loyal to him and lend him their gifts out  of their own internal motivation.
  •  His life is full of charm and depth

A high quality man lives his life in alignment with the skills he will need to have many girlfriends at once, or over a lifetime, even if he chooses to be with just one special girl forever.  To be frank, the dude that doesn’t take the time to developed these skills BEFORE he gets into a long term relationship…well, to put it delicately, that dude is fucked…. and not in the good way.
