    OK Guys now you can shine and show your true colors.

    I enjoy making my guy dinner and always knowing what his favorite meals are. I think it is important to really get in tune with the little things that makes your man tick.

    It used to be things along the lines of making a special trip out to a German market (he's Swiss-German: Schweizerdeutsch) and getting some home-made sausages and fixings. Now, with our pup, I get up early with her and let him sleep in. Surprising him with a BRAND NEW, FULLY REMODELLED BATHROOM worked pretty well, too...

    When I met my partner, he'd been a florist for 30 years... he left that business to be with me on the West Coast.

    About 3 weeks after he moved in, he was obligated to go to South Beach for a meeting. I arranged to have long stem roses in his room when he arrived there.

    Although he loves flowers, he'd never ever received them....

    I know it's a small thing, but it was the right thing at the right time. He's never forgotten it.

    I proposed. Down on one knee and everything. I honestly thought I was gonna spend the rest of my life with him. That didn't quite pan out, but I don't regret it.

    And I wrote him love letters all the time. Writing is my favorite form of expression.

    The man i was with for about 2 years is a resident anesthesiologist and has to work god awful hours, he never had time 2 clean, relax, or rest. I made a copy of his work schedule and made sure before he got home, his house was clean, he had food ready (i can't cook to save my life so i order out lol or make someone help me), and his favorite part was after he ate he had either a hot bath or shower ready for him, or i'd heat up the hot tub. If your really looking 2 get some favors in return have a hot bath ready for your man, add some kind of oil, and yall hop in, relax, let your meal settle and get ready for a looong night ;)

    " I can't give you anything but love, baby..."

    That is what I live by- and expect the same in return.
    No rings, no fancy pants, just a little sweat n' blood,
    and a lot of heart.

    We practice the NOW, moment to moment.

    peace

    Actually my best bud did it for me. He had a surprise birthday and invited all our friends and he had all my favorite food alot was home made by his family- all great Italian cooks. It was a great night it took him 6 months to prepare. I usually find out about parties but he totally surprised me. Everyone said it was one of the best parties they ever had been to. I don't know how I can top that one for his b-day. I think taking him on a surprise vacation. Any suggestions??

    i work in nightclubs in a major city in the uk. A lot of the time i come into contact with nasty violent people, even just driving the car. Our club staff agree that nice people no longer go out to pubs and clubs because they know something is liable to happen to them. uk cities are violent places now. I was moved to tears when i read the nice things people have written on this thread. i always make a point of looking my ex (now a mate for 12 years)in the eye and kissing his face when i thank him for something nice his has done as i know it takes him such an effort to do anything. He has several mental disorders that stop him doing much in his house. When i sence its all getting on top of him (even if i am really tired through working late nights),i go and clean out his kitchen throw out all the accumulated garbage, clean his fridge and make everything nice and clean again. I make him eat some food so i know he is alright then go home. You'd be surprised, there are people out there are worth bothering about. gaz

    Mike, suprize vacation sounds really nice. Weekend get-away is fantastic too. Tickets to his favortite team. Or something as simple as getting his favorite whatever.

    I think getting to know your guy and knowing what he enjoys in life and what makes him tick and just the thought of thinking of him in a special way turns a person on like you would not believe.

    I could be anything from his favorite dish one evening to picking up a shirt for no special occasion.

    Good topic RK. I will try some of those things. He is the type of person that can out do most men and woman that I have ever met. He is extremely thoughtful, genuine and when he does something he goes all out. It is hard to beat. Not that is is a competition, but I would like to do something he hasn't done for me already.

    I think the 'flasiest' thing I ever did was when I proposed in front of the Eiffel Tower right after the lights had turned on and the entire tower started to sparkle.

    The nicest thing, according to him, was have a bottle of wine and some cheese and crackers all laid out for him when he came home after a long week at work. He was asleep in 30 minutes but he always says that he loved that!

    I clean his whole apartment and cooked him dinner, made his bed, and even cleaned his bathrooms. OK that doesn't sound like much, but this guy had ceral books from last year on the table, dishes every! And his apartment was like Joe's Apartments, the roachs could freakin talk I kid you not! lol

    I remember opening some cap n crunch and a whole nest of them popped out at me...*shiver* and his bathroom! products everything, empty or spilled on the counter, o my god that place was a mess. I understand he was "straight" before meeting me and even still claims to be "straight" But I thought straight guys even knew when to pick up after themselves!

    My bf had been gone on a retreat for a while and i had to work the morning he was returning home. So late the night before, i started a roast in the crock pot and made some appitizers, setting everything up rite to the minute when he arrived everything would be just done cooking. I set the table real fancy just for him, with a card and some personal writting in it, fresh flowers and a cute stuffed teddy bear holding a heart saying i love you. A candle was there ready to be lit and soft music was already playing in the house waiting for him to come home.
    I was not there in person...but my heart sure was. I LOVE YOU JIMMY...KISSES

    My ex and I... awwww... We loved surprising each other.

    One day he made me wake up early to supposedly go to some of his parents' friends place for lunch or something. I was not happy about it... We got to waterloo station and he told me the platform number and it was for a train to Paris for the day. My first reaction was, but I don't have my passport... And obviously he had that too! it was a great day and a great surprise.

    Funny thing is that every time I tried to surprise him he royally screwed it up by accident. I was flying back from Christmas at home and was coming back one day early to wake him up with a kiss. From Dallas airport I called him and found out that he had decided to stay longer at his parents place!!! Surprise ruined. But he got up at 5 AM and got to our flat where he was waiting for me when I arrived with a bottle of champagne and breakfast.

    Ah... sadly its over.

    I was personal assistant to three big Hollywood stars in my life. The last of the three, Lucille Ball, was my employer till her death. Though Lucy wasn't fond of gay men she knew they adored her. My boyfriend at the time idolized her and wanted to meet her so badly. On his birthday Lucy called him on the phone and in her raspy voice sang "Happy Birthday" to him. He was overjoyed.

    ...ok...this is going to fall under the "tough love" part...try to see beyond the cynicism...

    I dumped his ass...remained his friend...and got him into rehab/therapy...
