Trinity Nicks: The 25 shades of Craig

If you haven’t been among the millions of readers who put the “Fifty Shades of Gray” on the best sellers list, then the coming fall may be your time to snuggle up under a blanket and get a little “HOT”.

I am not only prescribing this read for women, but also for all you men out there.

Now I know you men casually familiair with Fifty Shades are rolling your eyes and thinking I am crazy, but I am not, I assure you. I have been married for a long time and I know how easily couples can slip into a monotonous routine — how you would do almost anything to spark some of that passion and fire from when your relationship was fresh, exciting and new.

If you want to know what gets women heated up, then pay attention to what we are not only saying, but, most importantly, day dreaming and wishing about what would happen to us.

I’d be willing to bet that if you tried some of the things you’ve heard, read or even imagined your lady would be a happy camper — and so would you. Now, I admit that you don’t have to take it to Mr. Gray’s extremes, but if your partner is up for trying something new, then what the heck? It might be fun.

Because, at the end of the day, women all want the same things — to know that we are still desired and wanted. We crave that raw, animal passion that ignites the fire and makes women feel like women, and men feel like men.

Relationships are a job like any other. If you want the raises and bonuses, then you’re going to have to put in the work.

During the course of the next several weeks, we will be taking a look at some of the problems plaguing relationships and what you can do to ignite the fire in what I have come to call “The 25 shades of Craig.”
