Mostly ♫ - It is TOO Healthy
A relationship with no arguments is too good to be true. Arguments may not be entirely unhealthy for a relationship. Infact, arguments enhance the relationship with better understanding and also help to reconcile differences to help relationship to grow. The key is to argue the smart way! Hence, do not be afraid to reveal your true self and it is absolutely OK to argue once in a while provided you do not argue over senseless matters.
Mostly ♥ - Wow!
Keep up the good work. You are in a stable relationship that offers mutual support. However, always keep in mind that you may still be in the honeymoon period or the experiencing the excitement of falling in love. You may need to work harder to keep the sparks alive once normality sets in. I would suggest you check out my post on 123 ways to express your love to maintain your relationship healthy and alive ;)
Mostly ★ - Err??
You are in a so-so relationship with uncertainties about whether you should continue or leave your relationship. This is not very healthy and often this is the time when people have affairs due to insecurities. You should rediscover the reasons why you chose to be with your partner initially and plan some quality time together to revive feelings of love and build on understanding.
Mostly ◆ - OMG!
It is time for you to save or leave your relationship. If you feel that the relationship is worth saving, make effort to improve the relationship to a state that is acceptable to both of you or seek professional help. However, if the relationship is resulting too much stress, depression or health problems, it is time to say goodbye.
Good Luck and stay tune for more quizzes =)
Ok, with reference to my last post on Romance Tips for Valentine's Day, I have posted 6 very inexpensive romantic tips to keep your relationship sizzling on that night of romance and under Romantic Tip No. 6, I mentioned about foods to put you in the mood for love and feeling frisky. And YES, certain foods are indeed rich in substances that our body needs to reach its sexual peak as studies and researches confirmed. So, please read on to find out which food that can get you all romantic and charged this Valentine's! ;)
You will love this fruit for that bedroom endurance. Why? Bananas can help to ciculate testosterone in the blood as it contains magnesium. Testosterone, in turn, will improve libido. In addition, bananas also contain a natural feel good chemical which is called serotonin which can put you in good mood for mushy feeling. So, prior to making out, eat some bananas. Sharing a banana split is fun too =)
Want to stir some lust? Eat stalks of asparagus 3 days in a row! Do you know that our kidney is an organ that is said to regulate libido? And asparagus is known as a tonic for the kidneys according to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). Mostly phytoestrgens, or steriods in asparagus act like a blast of hormone theraphy to get you in the loving mood.
Oysters have been long known as a natural libido-booster. Its key ingredient is mineral zinc for testosterone production, thus enhancing sexual performance for both men and women. Oysters also contain vast amount of amino acids that accelarate the rush of sexual hormones. So, if you want to benefit more from the minerals in an oyster, make sure you chew them thoroughly.
One tablespoon of flaxseed per days helps increase libido-boosting testosterone, thanks to the vitamins it contains. Flaxseeds also contain great source of omega-3 and omega-6, which are essential for sex hormones. An alternative to flaxseeds would be Tongkat Ali to increase sex hormone levels even greater and it is scientifically proven.

Romantic Tip No.1
Make a compilation of songs you both enjoy. They can include all types of songs, even rap or rock, as long as you know you both will enjoy listening to as a couple.
Romantic Tip No. 2
Write love messages! Leave sticky notes around the house for your loved one to find, such as on the fridge, on the writing desk, on the computer, his golf set or briefcase, or even on the cellphone! Simple messages like "I love you" or "I miss you" is great enough to put you and your partner in the right mood...
Romantic Tip No. 3
Create a scrapbook of your love journey. Hmmm... you can include favorite photos, cherished mementos and love notes. Or if you still have that ticket stub of the most romantic movies you both watched together, you can include it in =) Creating a scrapbook does not only record the lovely moments you had together but also, when you and partner look at it, it can relive those tender moments.
Romantic Tip No. 4
Dinner! Prepare your partner's favorite dinner and do not forget to light those candles. Favorite dinner does not mean expensive food. It can be burgers, pizzas and fries as long as you both enjoy! So, who said that a romantic candlelight must include steak and wine? Make desserts if your darling has a sweet tooth, for example, a chocolate dessert topped with strawberries. Very yummy! :P
Romantic Tip No. 5
Despite the above, always remember that being together on this romantic is the most precious gift, regardless of how hectic your lifestyle and work schedules are. Spend QUALITY time together. Go to a spa, biking, take a walk on the beach, boating, hiking, etc both of you enjoy doing. Leave aside those daily stress and just FOCUS on appreciating each other's company.
