How to Romance The Man (or Woman!) in Your Life
It’s very common for people to assume that romance is more for women in the relationship. It’s often portrayed that way in the media from famed novels to prolific movies on the big screen you find guys going above and beyond to sweep their ladies off their feet. While women are more emotional lovers than men, that doesn’t mean guys don’t like a little romance in their lives on occasion. But no matter the gender, if you want to switch things up in your love life, use these tips below to romance your significant other!
Your guy might not be the type that enjoys receiving a bouquet of flowers, but there are tons of other things guys can get that make them feel just as special. Send him chocolate gifts like an assortment of gourmet chocolates with his favorite flavors in it and a simple note that lets him know he was on your mind. You can also have fresh fruit, a gift basket, a bottle of wine, or any other romantic gift delivered to his home or office.
Bed in Breakfast
Start your partner’s day off right with breakfast in bed. Get up extra early and prepare your guy’s favorite breakfast foods (or head to a nearby diner if you’re not the best chef). Place the food neatly on a plate and perhaps add a rose or a small note sealed with a kiss. As the saying goes, food is a way to a man’s heart, so waking up to a plate of delicious pancakes, waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage, or toast will really put a smile on his face.
There’s nothing like the rub of a loved one to take the stress and tension out of a day. When your guy gets home from work, create a relaxing environment for him to put his feet up and then give him a good massage. Allow him to unload about his day as you rub the stress away.
You Plan the Date
Is your guy always the one to come up with the plans for date night? If so, it’s time for you to switch things up a bit. Plan the date yourself. Try to choose something that speaks to his interests more than your own as it can go a long way. For example, you might get tickets to his favorite sports team event, go golfing, take him to a local bar, or treat him to his favorite restaurant. Ask him to go on a date with you and you take the lead (meaning you drive and pick up the bill).
Plan a Vacation
When is the last time the two of you had some alone time? Check your schedules and plan a surprise romantic getaway. It doesn’t have to be far or cost too much money to be special. Try to center the trip around the two of you incorporating things you both enjoy. If you can, score some perks by calling ahead and asking the hotel staff to set the room up really nice with candles and flower pedals.
You should never stop flirting with your partner. Flirting is a form of flattery that makes a person feel desired. This is essential to keeping the romance in your relationship. There’s nothing wrong with telling your guy how hot he looks or how much you desire them. Send a text message during the day, slip a note in their lunch, or announce it to the world on social media.
Space During Sports Season
This one might surprise you, but there’s nothing a man loves more than space and freedom to enjoy his favorite sports! It may not seem very romantic, but trust that he’ll fall in love with you. You can even take it a step further and make sure that his chair is ready, the snacks are on deck, and the beer is cold. You’ll go down as the best wife/girlfriend in history.
It’s true that women love romance. They like to be wined and dined, have sweet nothings whispered in their ears, taken to nice places, and spend quality time with their guys. However, men too appreciate a little romance from you to them. Show your guy just how much you love him and make him fall in love all over again with a little romance.
