Girls, what is THE most romantic thing a guy has ever done for you?

  1. Essy84 profile image83
    Essy84posted 7 years ago

    We all know that a lot of guys can be a bit... Blunt sometimes. Not very romantic.

    Some on the other hand are really sweet. But for some strange reason, most girls (me included) tend to not like the overly sweet guys. (Yeah we're not going to make it easy for them) smile

    For me what really swipes me off my feet is when a cool, tough, manly man, suddenly says or does something really sweet and unexpected. It doesn't even have to be big.

    OK so what is your best-ever-romantic-thing a guy did for you?

        Yeah, I used to go for the bad boys. Now I have a sweet one. Oh so much better. Laws yes.

        One year for my birthday he gave me 100 long stemmed roses in one big bunch and delivered them to me at work. All my friends were there and it made me feel so special. The house smelled strongly of roses for a week. They were in vases everywhere. mmmm mmm yum

      20 some years ago, (while still dating my now husband) we were celebrating our one year anniversary of being a couple. We started going out on the 14th of the month, and he brought me 14 roses.  It wasn't the roses though, it was what he said. He mentioned that he thought about buying a single rose for one year but since he planned to marry me, that could get pretty expensive at the 25 or 30 year mark. He has a great sense of humor, but he really meant what he said about marriage. I think it was very sweet and made me love him even more.

      As an aside, our wedding anniversary is 30th of the month, so we still joke about it even after almost 21 years of marriage.

        The most romantic thing (well, not just one thing, but more like a fulfilled fantasy) was when my best male friend recently came back to the States, from his home country of Pakistan. He was gone for 5 months, and before he left we had made beautiful passionate love, and of course I had cried and held him one last time....thinking that it would be the last time holding him.
        Now, last night, 5 months later...he came over to my house (my children were all gone for the night, so I had some privacy)and he told me all about his vacation and his travels. I'd missed him so much, and he knew that...and he told me he had missed me too. Then he told me he wanted to "show" me what he had fantasized about...and step by step, with very slow hands and kisses and intimate touches, he SHOWED me (by doing) his fantasy. I was trembling and sighing and was confused, not realizing how much 5 months had gone and now everything was coming back as it was before. And it was one of the most beautiful and romantic memories I've ever had, with this beautiful, very exotic, errotic man/lover. So, in short, the most romantic thing a man has ever done for me, was last night, when my Pakistani lover SHOWED me his dream fantasy by LIVING it out with me. I feel blessed and privileged that he chose me and trusted me enough to fulfill that with me. It was very romantic.
        A loving fan,

      The reason you girls don't go for sweet guys is because it shows that they are naive, If they spend all their time doing stuff for you they aren't looking after themselves and that is a weakness.

      My man washed my motorcycle for me when I got back from a cross-country ride. He also installed some parts I'd been procrastinating on installing and he also set my bike up for a track day. (This takes a lot of work.) He's not a love letter and flowers kinda guy, but this is okay. He has more than made for it as my own personal mechanic. I love you baby.

    When I was in college I had an older boyfriend who use to do the Sweetest, most romantic things for me and no one has topped him yet.
    1. He would fill my car up with gas while I was sleeping-
    2. Leave notes/cards/roses on my windshield
    3. Buy me groceries (bcuz he noticed I needed 'milk', etc when he was there)
    4.For V-Day one year he covered the stairs leading to my apt...my apt all the way to my bed with roses upon which he had a note that said open the fridge-which sat a box full of chocolate covered strawberries and a gold ring!

    Yeah, not sure what could top this!

    a blind date, the most perfect date.
    he picked me up on his motorcycle
    drove me safely to the downtown area of Chicago
    gripped onto sculpted chest, smelled his alluring cologne
    took me to the hard rock cafe - never went there
    walked along the beach lake Michigan at night with a full moon
    talked about life, laid in the sand, enjoy each others company
    smiled,laughed, god he was such a gentlemen
    he dropped me off at home
    never seen each other again
    no sex, no kiss, just a perfectly romantic night

    A week after my husband and I got married, he got deployed. We had to go to Tampa for that. We both had connecting flights in Atlanta, so I was going to wait for him after my flight landed. We sat at the gate until every single person had got on the plane because we didn't want to leave each other. When I finally had to get on, I was bawling and everyone boarding just saw what happened, so they all made a comment. When I sat down they starting moving people around, including the guy next to me. I was staring back at the gate hoping to get a glimpse of him, but instead had sat down next to me. Turns out, he bought a $600 ticket so we could be together another hour and half before leaving each other for 14 months. By far the most amorous I've ever felt.

    best thing ever was the time I said I wanted to go to the beach for my birthday. He called and told me to get my beach bag, and bring an extra set of clothes for after. We drove for an hour, when it dawned on me that we had passed the beach. I asked where we were going, he replied "the ocean...". We drove from Cincinnatti, Ohio to Long Island New York. Had a fabulous day , watched the sunset.

    Meet Me By The Sea

    Busy streets, and the ferry horn.

    A table for two, a chance reborn.

    Warm summer night, a harbor view.

    I'll order some drinks while I wait for you.

    Clouds may threaten, but here we are safe.

    Live music plays, as we enjoy our escape.

    Singing along to songs that we know.

    Toasting to love that is sure to grow.

    Clams on the half shell, an amorous treat.

    One more thing would make this complete.

    Whisper in my ear what I want you to say.

    Take you back home where I'll have my way.

    Tonight I'll wait here in our favorite place.

    I'll listen to music, recall our embrace.

    I'll order two drinks, and something to eat.

    Look at the sea and, hope again that we meet!

    Ah! I miss the summer! Still everyday is a new opportunity for a romantic adventure!

    I was walking with an ex (we remain good friends) and I didn't notice that my scarf slipped and dropped on some muddy winter thaw stuff.  I liked the scarf but would have just left it there because it was grimy.  My ex picked it up and said it can be cleaned up and I told him there's no point since I have other scarves. Anyway he kept it and I forgot about it until he gave it to me all nice and clean the following week.  Didn't expect it but I thought it was so sweet. I still have the scarf.

    I know it will sound so awful, but it meant alot at the time. He bought me my own pack of cigaretts, a six pack of beer, and left these in a brown paper bag in front of my apartment door. Along with a huge vase full of handpicked wildflowers.
    Now 10 years later he's my husband, and he knows me like no one else.
    Sometimes its a curse, somtimes its a blessing.
    He can hurt me like no other, and its worse because I know he knows exactly what he's doing.
    and other times, he can see right thru to my soul, and he says just the perfec thing.

    No matter how big or small, appreciate every gesture someone who loves you makes.

    The most romantic thing my husband ever did was buy me grass. No, it wasn't the kind that you smoke.

    We lived in the desert in a townhouse with a little courtyard that was all sand and rock. He had listened to me for months about not having any green around. One day, for no particular reason, he bought grass and laid it in the courtyard to surprise me when I got home.

    Out of all the things that he did before and since, that is the one gift that will stay with me always.

    A couple of years ago, we had been married only a month. My husband was still looking for work and money was tight, I was working but He didn't want to use any of my money for valentines day, so instead while I was at work he baked a big chocolate cake and spelled out I (heart) you in miniature marshmallows on the cake. It was so sweet, because he is not one who likes to do anything in the kitchen except eat. Much less bake a cake and clean up.

    Throughout a very tough time in my life, my husband (who was then a very good friend) spent his evenings on the phone talking to me just to make me feel better...he hates the phone, and now I know that he'd talk until two hours before he had to go to work on many occasions. There were times when he'd send me money via Paypal without asking me if I needed it, he just had a feeling...and without it I wouldn't have had anything to eat, though later he told me that he practically lived off ramen noodles during that time. When the time came, he sold or gave away everything that had been in his life for the last 20 years except for two bags with clothes, a laptop, and a few tools in order to move thousands of miles to be with me.

    Every day he does little things to show me how much he still loves and appreciates me, but nothing can quite compare to his willingness to give up his home, friends, and life he loved for the chance to build a new life with me.

    For my 30th Birthday - I had asked my whole family (including my hubby) to pitch in together and get me a really nice, professional camera (especially since it was a little expensive) - it was all I wanted and asked for. Needles to say I did not receive it and although a little dissapointed, was grateful none the less for the gifts I did receive.

    6 months later for Christmas, although I did not request the camera, I did get one from my brother-in-law. It was very nice but nothing at all like the one I wanted but I knew the thought that was behind the gift and was very appreciative. My hubby did mention when we got home that night that although it was a very nice camera, he knew it wasn't the one I had been hoping for and wanting.

    Well - three months later, outta nowhere and for absolutely no reason at all, my hubby comes home from work with a wrapped box in his hand. For the life of me I could not figure out what was. He just handed it to me and walked away. I opened it and literaly started crying. It was the camera I had wanted. I couldn't believe he had gotten it for me - I had pretty much forgotten about it after christmas. It was the BEST and most romantic (at least to me) thing my hubby has ever done with the exception of his proposal to me. It's 13 years later and it's still the BEST gift I ever received and I still use that camera today in spite of it now being considered "old school".

    My ex-fiance had proposed to me like this: At the stump where our tree once was, where we had our first date, our first kiss, and where our entire relationship had been. It was at sun set the weekend of my birthday and after a pregnancy scare was over. He had brought me a fettuccine diner from fresh and easy because he couldn't cook and then it turned out it was too old and he felt bad so I kissed and thanked him anyway and layed  on his chest to watch the sun set. It was at that moment he pulled out his mothers engagement ring and proposed ^_^. It was cute and sweet and his hand shook and the ring fell out and he tried to put it on my hand. Of course I said yes, it's a shame it never lasted though.

      Spencer used to hold my face in his hands when he kissed me, no matter where we were. In fact, people used to wait for it when he came to see me at work, and then saw "awe" haha. He also used to throw rocks at my bedroom window really late at night and take me for long drives...we wouldnt even need to talk. i miss that.
