    Depending on his workplace environment and if he is "out" at work...

    ... I dig sending a HUGE arrangement of flowers to his office on an day that has no particular significance.

    Also, doing special things for your bf takes being a bit sneaky as well. Over a period of time gather intel from the regular day to day conversations that you have. Take note of when he likes something, some place, some food, whatever it might be. Then, use this information to spring welcome surprises on him.

    Trying to surprise using "shot in the dark" guesses can leave you "shooting yourself in the foot" inadvertently.

    Be creative, be thoughtful. It doesn't have to be anything for which you paid a lot of money. But, it should be something for which you paid extra attention and consideration.

    In my view, a picnic is fun and romantic. Just make sure you're not taking him to a meadow...and he has hay fever, or some other fail like that. :-)

    What you need:

    1. Skin safe (tempura-type) paint in 6 or 7 colors.
    2. A large white sheet you are prepared to part with.
    3. Loads of tea lights.


    Remove everything in your living room and lay down a sheet. Make sure the edges are fastened to the walls.
    Light the tealights on plates evenly around the room, about 10 to a plate. Turn the lights off and let the natural cathedral type lighting do its work. Select appropriate expressive music.
    Both of you will proceed naked. The idea is to use one another's body as a paintbrush for the sheet (canvas). Move together. The body in unison sliding against a surface, brushing against it, together with the other creates a beautiful imprint.
    Explore one another's body and the effects of the body, paint, sheet, and one another. Let yourself go.

    It doesn't take long to clean up. Just make sure you have some towels nearby for the trip to the shower.

    If you do this right, you end up with a really memorable wall-sized canvas that is really an imprint of love making. I kept one on the wall for a year and it was a real stunning piece of work and loads of fun to make.

    A gay masterpiece like that is not complete without sparkles so wear some body glitter next time.

    For a nice romantic weekend, I bought a hiking book for our local area. I found a great hiking trail that had a nice romantic lookout over the valley. Packed up the food(I am a bit lazy in this area, so bought picnic food from a local gourmet all natural grocery store), brought the book, and took the hike. It was a great time. At the "dinner" I gave him the book and suggested he find us our next adventure to conquer. Quite a few weekends were out on the trail with one or both of us planning the next "romantic getaway" hike.
