Knot Tyers
101 Ways to Keep the Love Knot Tied

by Marty & Carol Younkin

Has your love life lost its luster? Is your romance in a rut? Has the flame fizzled and the fire faded? Do you feel like roommates instead of soulmates?

What happened? Life. Life happened. Life got in the way when you were on your way to “happily ever after.” Sometimes life derails us and we lose track of the…track.

So what can you do to avoid “derailment” and get your love life back on track again? How do you keep the love knot tied?

Try some KnotTyers! 101 ways to help you keep the love knot tied. Most of these KnotTyers are simple things you already know but forget to do, or don’t take the time to do, or stopped doing, or never did in the first place but should be doing now. 

There are practical principles to try out, as well as time-tested truths that have proven to be successful. Some are “girls only,” some are “guys only,” but most are applicable to both girls and guys. Note that there are “what to do” and “what not to do” suggestions. Both are equally important.

So get started and turn your roommate back into your soulmate once again! You’ll never know until you “tie it.”

  Two hearts together will travel
      life’s journey side by side,
  and promise to do whatever it takes
     to keep the Love Knot tied!
