You and your partner wake up, go to work, come home, deal with dinner, wrangle kids, do laundry, go to bed. And maybe you make a move. But if this is the first signal you've given all day, it may be no surprise that your partner isn't in the mood.
If you'd like to make love, start sending signals a day or two ahead of time. You know your partner best, so you know what signals are likely to be well received. Some ideas:
-- Offer a more-passionate-than-usual goodbye kiss in the morning.
-- Taking on an extra household chore so your partner can sleep in 15 more minutes.
-- Send a passionate e-mail in the middle of the workday.
-- Make his or her favorite dinner.
-- Offer genuine appreciation for something your partner does around the house.
-- Set a scene in the bedroom -- pick up the socks on the floor, light some candles, put on some soft music.
-- Compliment your partner's looks.
-- Wear something your partner likes.
