    Maybe the idea of romance is dead, but I'd still like to know, how many of you Rjers have that romantic spark in your relationships?

    Opening the door for your partner, cuddling, flowers.

    I once read on this forum that someone, "slept on the part of the bed closest to the door so they could protect their loved one." they also said their father had taught them that. Are these ideas still circulating?

    What romantic things do you guys do?

    "Just love me and I'll go buy my soul back from the devil and give it to you.."

    I came up with it this morning icon_rolleyes.gif ... sometimes I'm sarcasticly romantic , and sometimes too naive ..

    I'v never had a boyfriend to splash all that romance on him .. But I know I'm an extremely emotional guy, and will give my soul to the person I love.. I just find love sacred and built on painful sacrifices...I know how to love, maybe too mcuh..

    I must plant kisses on his forehead every time I get a chance. Kisses on the lips for longer than 2 seconds leads to sex, so I use this power sparingly.

    There are times when I am romantic to my man. Whenever my boyfriend lays his head down on my lap ('cause his tired!), I try to sneak in a kiss on his cheek. Then there's Eskimo kisses, one's that you nuzzle your nose to theirs.

    There are times where it seems romantic but its not. Such as, I open the door for him and he thanks me and tells me its the sweetest gesture, I tell him the truth,

    "Actually, if the door was boobie-trapped, you'd get hit instead of me."

    ....You might never know!

    During the time I was together with my ex, I alway kiss his hand (aside for the lip kiss ,of course) before I go out. It an expression of how much I love him. Nothing sexual , a sort of tq for loving me. God, how I miss him....

    I always give him a tissue when he's done blowing me.

    Yep, we do.

    It'll take a long post and bore people. icon_wink.gif.

    How we think of each other romantically shows up in most of our interactions with each other.

    ...huh...why do I feel shy about this all of a sudden?

    OK.
    Whenever Bill and I lock eyes, we both think of pretty intense things we've said about how we love each other. I know we both do this because we once had a very enlightening and wonderful conversation about this.
    So with that in mind,

    Bill recently got into tea instead of coffee.
    I was out and saw a 'brown Betty', dark mahogany glazed tea pot with a long goose-neck spout. Remember them? Our grannies had 'em..

    20 bucks well spent. You shoulda seen his face. I'd 'noticed' his sudden change in drink.
    Last night I made a roast beef rolled in a sundried tomato paste. Brown basamati rice. Too much salad. Hot brownies. Computer turned on and warmed up for his YouTube Friday night fun.

    ...just paying attention. So little can make someone so happy. And we keep giving each other those looks. We've never in soon 20 years ever tired of saying three little words to each other every day, whenever there's an opening. Over time it's taken on a whole new set of meanings and inferences, rather than diminishing in value. .

    So many guys say your partner's happiness is not your responsibility, but we say that when you can, and when the opportunity's there, it's pure gold; do it.

    A gentleman always remembers to push in his date's stool when they are at the bar.

    ALL of the above and more when I am with someone along with constantly telling them in thousands of ways how much he is important to me, how much I care about him and want to be with him.
    Hold hands, cuddle kiss for no reason other than we are together.
    Text, phone calls Emails... etc to do let him know I am always there for him.
    Alas, not everyone appreciates that kind of treatment or even likes it... but I would LOVE it from my BF. icon_smile.gif

    BF and I do many things during the day to remind us how much we mean to each other and that we don't take each other for granted.
    Lots of kissing, hugging, cuddling, nuzzling, holding hands, saying thank you and my pleasure. Buying stuff for the other at the store/mall that he might need/enjoy and plain old talking how or day is going/was and how we feel.
    No grand gestures, but millions of little things to make the other happy.

    Just noticing the little things instead of some huge over rated, expensive gesture I find more romantic.
    A home cooked meal for 2 instead of a night out on the town is more personal and romantic. Or a kiss that doesn't leads to sex is all ways a plus.
    One of my favoirte things is just holding hands in public, finding out some guys just will not do that because of the attention it might get.

    I'm a big fan of the little stuff... I remember one time when I was living in New Zealand, I had a Kiwi boyfriend. He had a love for this specific Cadbury chocolate bar. In NZ, Cadbury bars are giant, and this one had 60 blocks in it. So on what was our first month of living together, I bought one of these behemoth chocolate blocks. I unwrapped it and broke the bar in half placing the note "Here's thirty pieces of chocolate for thirty of the sweetest days together" and then another note on the other half that read "And here's to another thirty wonderful days." I then rewrapped the chocolate bar and left it on the table for him to find when he got home.

    Along with lots of stuff that we do for each other, I think he really loves it when I show my love for his dog. He really LOVES his dog, so I buy the dog toys and treats alot!

    Beyond flower to the first date. One thing I have found is having drawn a bubble bath, candle light, glass of wine waiting for a loveer after a hard day.

    After slipping on ice, I carried my first boyfriend up to his doorstep. I opened doors for him. I'm the kind of guy that doesn't curse and tries as hard as possible to be nice.

    He told me he loved it.
