Deeply Connecting to the One You Love
by Arielle Ford

In this crazy, busy world of ours we don’t always put our mates at the top of our "To Do" list. But what if we did? What if we put our partner’s happiness and well being at the very top of our list? Wouldn’t that make perfect sense?

Owner's Manual by Arielle Ford

When was the last time you stopped to think about doing something extra special for your loved one? Do you really even know what it is that they would like?

For many people, happiness is in the small details. Just taking a minute or two out of your day to think about your mate can make their entire day. A thoughtful note slipped into a jacket pocket to be discovered later in the day, or a perfect single rose left on a bed pillow, is all it takes to let someone know you love, cherish and adore them.

Here’s a pop quiz: Do you know the following about your mate?

  • Their secret guilty pleasure
  • Their 10 best ways to diffuse an angry or upset mood
  • The one thing they have always wanted but have never gotten
  • The dream job they fantasize about
  • Their deepest phobias and superstitions
  • Which celebrity they would want to play them in a movie about their life
  • If time and money were no object how they would spend the day
  • Their views on euthanasia
  • Their idea of a heavenly weekend

Did you immediately know the answers? If not, don’t worry. Chances are even they don’t know themselves that well. The good news is that I have co-authored a book for couples that helps to answer all of these questions and much, much more.

Elizabeth Goodman and I created "The Owner’s Manual: The Essential Guide to the One You Love," published by Jodere Group. Just like everything we own that comes with an owner’s manual--cars, computers, cell phones and stereo systems--we think a partner should come with an owner’s manual, too. "The Owner’s Manual" is a fun, easy, and truly interactive, fill-in-the-blank book that gives both you and your partner the opportunity to list all of your wants, needs, desires, and fantasies. From which side of the bed you sleep on, to your favorite movies, you and your partner will learn one another’s essential history and important preferences in life. Buy two books for you and your mate, fill them out and then exchange them. You will learn so much about the one you love that you can navigate the waters of relationship more smoothly than ever before. It will give you both a chance to empower and care for one another by finally knowing and understanding their every need.

Hot Chocolate for the Mystical Lover by Arielle Ford

The questions raised in "The Owner’s Manual" will inspire laughter, stimulate good conversation, and create a new or renewed closeness as you learn more about yourself and share it with your beloved. More love, more fun—aren’t those two great reasons to put your relationship on the top of your "To Do" list?
