Have you heard about this new service, Husband Hero?
I've read the website thoroughly, and I'm still trying to decide how I feel about it.
Basically, it's a subscription for your husband that will send him a once a month email giving him romantic ideas to try. There's also a page that he can have you (his wife) fill in so that he has all your preferences. It lists things like; favorite flower, food, love song, movies, etc. That way if he wants to surprise you with a dinner or an activity, he can at least have a shot at doing something you like. You can also list some dates that you like to celebrate, and the site will email him reminders for those.
And then he can be your hero!!!
Like I said, I'm not sure how I feel about it.
On one hand, sparking some creative and different ideas would be a really REALLY good thing. And as much as I'd love to think that after 25 years of marriage we should know enough about each other think up little pleasant surprises, I'm not really sure that's the case. We've had a lot of Friday date nights where we've sat around like the buzzards in Jungle Book, asking each other,
"Hey, man, what do you want to do? I dunno, what do you want to do?"
It would be positively refreshing for one of us to have a PLAN. You know, put some effort into it?
On the other hand, if he started doing fun, creative, romantic ideas, I guess I'd feel like I should do the same. And friends, I searched and searched, and there is NO "Wife Hero" website, to give me a couple of pointers once a month. I think there are plenty of women who might pay for this service as well, don't you?
Hey, maybe we could start a site! We could call it Wonder Wife, and we could send monthly ideas about ... you know...
about the regular 2 things that make men feel happy and loved.
Those monthly emails are gonna get a little tricky, aren't they?
Well, it was mainly the business name I liked, anyway. We can work out the details later.
