Being Romantic is About the Simple Things

It’s not always about the money you spend or the jewelry you buy. It’s about remembering the day you first laid eyes on her, the way she made you feel, and the way her eyes would light up when you wooed her.

The sweet gestures and the romantic quirks; somehow those get lost over time as the relationship develops into a comfort zone that can sometimes be unintentionally neglectful of each other’s feelings.

Take it back to the beginning, when it was new and you swept her off her feet. Rewind your romance.

Romantic Tips

Leave a note on the bathroom mirror that says I love you.

Buy a single rose and have it waiting when she comes home (or you pick her up for a date).

Read to her as she drifts off to sleep.

Brush her hair while watching TV together.

Kiss her passionately for no reason and in public.

Open the car door for her.

Hold her hand.

Post something sweet on her wall.

Mail her a greeting card just because.

Ask her out on a date, no matter how long you've been together.

Take a walk in the park.

Send her a sexy text message.

Take her to get a manicure and pedicure.

Pick up some chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of wine to surprise her.

Tell her you appreciate her.

Jewelry is still a good thing so pick up something simple with her birthstone.

Kiss her at midnight and whisper in her ear – tell her you love her more and more each year.

Teddy bears never go out of style, buy her one for Valentine’s Day, and throw in a card and dinner.

Play truth or dare drinking game for St. Patrick’s Day and get wild together.

Have a BBQ on Memorial Day and don’t make her cook anything.

Tell her this weekend it’s just the two of you, the couch and finger foods; throw a movie in and a lot of kisses.

Make her feel like a princess on her birthday.

Kiss her on the Fourth of July under the lights of fireworks.

Ask her to dress up as your fantasy for Halloween; at the end of the night, have your way with her.

Ask if you can help with Thanksgiving dinner.

Christmas morning, surprise her with an actual gift under the tree.

Take her to see a romantic movie in the theatre, share a large drink and popcorn.

Go to the adult toy store together and buy her something you can both use tonight.

Surprise her with a weekend getaway to a bed and breakfast for just the two of you.

Go camping on the beach and make love under the stars.

Pick up the phone to tell her you love her.

Take her to her favorite restaurant tonight.

Remember your anniversary.

Ask her to join you in your favorite hobby.

Do the dishes after dinner tonight and tell her to relax.

Buy her a spa day certificate.

As soon as you walk in the door, don’t say a word, just walk straight up to her and kiss her like the first time.

Take her to the place you met and reminisce.

Take her on a horse and carriage ride.

Join her in the shower tonight.

Take her kayaking that ends up at a romantic picnic.

Wake her up in the middle of the night with kisses all over her body.

Stay home on a weekend night and let her know it’s just because you want to spend time with her and not the boys.
