Romantic things to do for your boyfriend or husband

Updated on September 16, 2008

What does he want?

Remember the old cliché: the way to a man's heart is through his stomach? Believe it or not, there is some truth to that. Husbands/boyfriends don't look at romance the same way that women do. We like to be wined and dined and a little spoiling is always nice too. A common mistake that women make is that we try to romance our significant others the way we would want to be romanced, meaning that we think of the most romantic place we would want to be and think "OMG - that's PERFECT!" What we neglect to state is that it is perfect for US, but not necessarily the men in our lives. Here are some tips that have worked through trial and error with my husband.

Tip #1: Wings, Beer, and the GAME

Seems silly, I know. I thought so too when he told me that all he wanted from me was some hot wings, a case of his favorite beer, and some time to do or watch whatever he wanted. I was welcome to sit with him, but it was all about him. I remember thinking "Wow...doesn't seem very romantic to me" but he was so appreciative of the whole thing. It seems that in his mind, the way it was seemed to be more like "She love me enough to pamper me the way I want to be pampered and took a real interest in what I wanted." To him that spoke volumes of how I feel about him, so to him, it was...romantic.

Tip #2: Classic Fallback - Lingerie!

Men are very visual people, plain and simple. Lingerie keeps it sexy and at the same time, doesn't give it all away. After the beer, wings, etc., he'll be completely ready to be romantic with you the way that you would expect romance to be.

Tip #3: Don't be afraid to be SEXY

Men are also very sexual and tend to equate sexual intimacy with romance. I know that tends to go against the grain of what a woman feels, but that's what men want. Maybe spice it up in the bedroom, and by spice it up, here's what I mean. If you have kids, see if you can't find a babysitter for the night, or at the very least, be sure that the kids are in bed and asleep before you get started. Then maybe a couple glasses of wine, or whatever your drinks of choice are. If he's hungry when he gets home, let him eat first though! Anyway, so after, be ready to do something a little kinky in the bedroom. Whip cream or chocolate pudding can be fun, or maybe some KY of your choice. Maybe wear something revealing or sexy, but not necessarily lingerie. Maybe consider role playing - like dress up in a sexy nurse uniform or something...whatever he likes. My guy has a thing for miniskirts and super heroes like Wonder Woman or Supergirl, so you can guess what we've done Consider it to be playing dress up, but for adults. Be creative and use your imagination and your guy will eat it up.

Just be safe and have'll definitely romance your man and he'll love every minute of it.

      When out for the evening and getting late. Excuse yourself to the ladies room and when you return, stuff your panties into his suitcoat pocket.

      I need something different, my husband is not typical. He's not into sports, Sex is not his first thought. And it has to be CHEAP.

      There is some great information right there! Like Daniela says, remember that romance for men and women can be totally different.

      Man are so used to being the seducer, the one who initiates sex, and the one who has to perform. Taking away this responsibility once in a while is a massive turn on for him. Being thrown into bed be a sex crazed women who can't wait to rip your clothes off won't ever be rejected by a male (and if it is you need to find a new one!).

      Whilst you may prefer to be wined and dined and told how much you mean to him, men don't require this. I'm not saying we don't like it. But often we only do it for your benefit.

      There's tons more romantic ideas and advice on if you care to have a look.

      Not too bad, somewhat stereotypical, but good none-the-less.

      You got us down pat, we are vocal, hungry, lusty, bunch of softies that you can shape to fit.

      Share yourself and be vocal in how the two can combine.

      Then watch the sparks fly between the two of you. I know it, got the Tshirt, and that smile. (;-0)
