Is your spouse romantic?

Mine isn't and I'm glad. If he brought me flowers and made sweet talk to me I think I'd cringe. What I like is when he fixes me a cup of coffee in the morning without me having to ask for it, I would rather him snap a danilion off in the yard and give it to me than a bouquet of roses. Just tell me you love me once and while instead of whispering sweet nothings in my ear. Do you like your spouse to be romantic?

I think my partner is romantic. I get flowers that they had to sneak to get, I'm given things they know I'll want (it can be as simple as a drink) or something like a gift. They let me sleep in when they know I didn't get a lot of sleep the night before and they make me food sometimes. I just like knowing someone cares enough to make things or get things for me.

lol, I think I posted that discussion wrong. I confused romance with consideration. I think you have the best of both.

My fiance isnt romantic in the way most like, i just like it when he tells me he loves me, and stay over late at night, it's just the little things that get me.

lol, I guess that really wouldn't fall under the catagory for romance would it? That's more under the consideration catagory. Either way mine doesn't have a romantic bone in his body. Which is fine with me.

Mine doesn't have a romantic bone in his body as far as actions go. He will write me a beautiful poem once in a while and every couple of years he will bring me a bouquet of flowers (which i love) and if i ask he will massage my back when i am in pain or having muscle spasms and although that probably doesn't come under the romantic heading it does show that he cares that i am in pain and is willing to take time to try to make me more comfortable.

Cathy, he write you a poems? That is so beautiful. When I think of someone being romantic I remember the way my first husband was. I think that's what has put me off with the romance stuff. Anytime he did something, he had to make sure it was done with a full audience at hand so everyone could see what he was doing. Makes me want to puke to even think about it.
