9 Romantic Acts

Romance is difficult for many men, as it seems there are no clear rules. I think of romance as an act of love that shows you were thinking about her when thinking of her when the two of you were apart.

Here are a few to get you going – try and then modify based on your results: 

  1. Flowers: Yes, it is one of the first things we think of when we think of romantic – which is the point.
  2. Candle light: Adding a candle to almost any event makes it more romantic. Candles in a glass container are safer and easier to store.
  3. A walk: Not just any walk, an evening walk in the neighbourhood where you dated, or some other place with good memories. A nice park works well too.
  4. Heart shaped sticky notes: Leave them around with words of love. Toss out a few once a week or so, some in obvious places, some not. 
  5. Breakfast in bed: Presentation is a big part of this: set a nice looking tray and include a flower.
  6. Remember those special days: This is basic, but critical. Set a reminder on your phone or computer, or try an on-line reminder service.
  7. Text her: Send a short love note, or just a “Thinking about you”. Do this often, but not on a set schedule. 
  8. Make eye contact: Good any time, but especially effective across a crowded room. Get her attention and then smile or wink.
  9. A love letter: Doing this right takes a fair amount of work, but its well worth it. More thoughts on this here and here.

    • Yes! Something I love is that my husband will call me periodically throughout the day when he’s at work, simply to tell me that he loves me. It’s always a very short phone call, no chit-chat; it’s as though he just wants to hear my voice for a second. I call him usually twice a day to do the same thing for him – I don’t want to call too much because he’s at work, but I want him to know that I’m thinking about him too. <3 I find it to be one of the sweetest and most romantic things when he calls me from work, because I know he's thinking about me throughout the day. I'm really not "out of sight, out of mind." :)

      • Additionally, it is nice to know we aren’t compartmentalized like every other thing in his life. A wife should be a part of all (or nearly all) of his compartments, not delegated to her own box that he only opens on his terms when he feels like it.

        • Kate S. – I get how women can feel slighted by the male tendency to live in various boxes. (I don’t do that as much as most men, so I see it more clearly I think.) However, if he thinks that way, then his learning how to better love her in that way is a good and natural way to do it.
