    Hey guys! I don't post on here all that often, but I've just started seeing a guy. We've been out 8 times in about four weeks and things are going well. I like him, he likes me. It seems to be progressing toward a relationship.

    I need some good ideas for things that I can do to show that I like him....romantic things or otherwise. What are some romantic things that you've done or other guys have done for you?

    For perspective - the nature of our relationship seems to be pretty equal when it comes to initiative...sometimes me, sometimes him.

    Any ideas are greatly appreciated! I'm excited about this new potential relationship!

    Hey sounds like you are in a good place!

    My advice to you is.... "listen".


    Listen to what he says, what he likes.....really listen.

    If you really like him you will want to do things with him that he enjoys.

    Ask questions. icon_biggrin.gif

    This is a little hard without knowing how deep this feeling is.

    I'd do a card, and knowing me, would write in it, "You light up my world."

    isn't learning to be romantic a bit like a doctor asking for second opinion?

    I cooked a fancy 3 course meal for a guy I was dating, it took 2 days to buy all the ingredients do the preparation and then the cooking. Unfortunately he cancelled at the last minute, and then stopped texting after a few days. My housemates loved the dinner though haha.

    This is the way to go. It's better than romance: it's a long-term recipe for a great relationship.

    (accidentally) swap out his I-pod with yours.
    Find an excuse to borrow his car and detail it for him.
    Build him a new deck.
    Fix that shower head problem he has, better yet replace it with one befitting his height.
    Bring his dog a bag of pig ears.
    Leave a bag of popcorn flavored jelly-beans on his desk.
    Text him your at Sonic: "It's happy hour--what do you want"?
    Pick up a new watch band cause you noticed the one he has is about to break free.
    Pull his trash can to the curb, before you leave, cause you noticed the neighbors cans were on the curb.

    what about taking a cooking class? that is always great. it gives you two a chance to do something together and you can make it romantic by sharing what you cook. how about a picnic in the park?

    It doesn't have to an elaborate, over-thought production. Just cook some food and share a meal. Anything over-the-top just scares people away or sets up uncomfortably high expectations for reciprocity.

    I've gotta second the picnic idea. Did this last weekend and it was perfect.
