For the ladies, what would sweep you off your feet? What would be the sweetest thing that a guy can do for you? For the guys, what is the sweetest thing that you think you can do for a girl? Let's stay from the usual "I'll stay with her for the rest of my life"...blah blah blah... Those cheesy lines. Let's try to be concrete. Sure there are many ways to show love and appreciation right? Let's try to be unique as possible. We could probably make use of this discussion someday. Hehe. For my part.... It may actually not be the sweetest thing but here's what I did a long time ago, it was for Valentine's Day... I asked her friends to help me out. I bought white roses and distributed it among her friends. Then, while she was alone in their classroom, I went it, gave her a white rose, sat down in front of her with my guitar. So you could imagine what I did, I sang for her. Hehe. While I was singing,one by one her friends came to give her the rest of the white roses. After that, I told her that I love her. That was it. Hehe. I thought I might share this so some other guy would find this idea useful. I hope to hear from you my friends,fellow myLotters! Thank you!

The sweetest thing for a girl are actually the small things that most of us overlook. The simple act of greeting her every morning and telling her how much you love her is actually music to her ears. The small acts of opening the door for here or pulling her the chair on the table is actually good enough to make her smile. Remember that most girls are sensitive and they really sometimes appreciate more the little things that you do rather than the big things.

Ah yes, thank you. This is just something more of a bonus, of course sometimes you have to do something big, especially on certain occasions. But we do know and must know how important those small things are. Thank you! God bless!

Every little thing that my husband does to me is the sweetest thing that I have experienced. But the most that I really like was whenever he gives me peach roses with a note that says, "I've been saving for our church wedding". We have been married through civil rights. Can't wait when he goes home next year, he's working abroad.

Oh I see. Yes, that's really sweet. Peach roses are rare. He really loves you so much, it's true that when someone we love and loves us, everything she/he does is the sweetest.Thanks for sharing!

The standard romantic fare doesn't do it for me, but my guy really sweeps me off my feet when he unloads the dishwasher without being asked (my most hated task), tidies the house before I come home with a house guest, runs out to get me a food item when I'm really hankering on something and don't want to change out of my pj's and go out, etc. I'd take any of those any day over roses and candlelight dinners. I'm a simple creature, I suppose.

Actions speak louder than words! One of the sweetest thing a guy has ever done to me was to burn a cd with all the sentimental love songs and the cd cover has my picture. But well, I've lost that cd. I always believe actions speak louder than words. The guy need not do dramatic things like shouting 'I love you' in the public. More importantly, it's the daily little actions that count more. If a guy doesn't say he loves me but his actions say it, I'll be very Happy. Anyway, that's sweet of you to sing a song and play guitar.

Wah.. Lost the cd.. Aw... Sad. Hehe. Shouting I love you in public sounds a bit too much. Majority of people who responded here do say that actions speak louder than words or that simple things are the sweetest. Umm... about the singing thing, thank you! Hehe. God bless.

I think the sweetest thing that a guy could do for a girl is to take her on a day out somewhere and enjoy the day together. By this I do not mean taking her shopping but something with a bit of thought put into it. Find out what she is into and use that to go on. Bring a camera and then you can capture the moments together and present the photos to her in an album at a later date or put your favourite photo in a frame for her to remember the moment.

The sweetest thing that you could do for a woman would, unfortunately, probably me the most difficult thing that you could do. It would be to know her well enough to know exactly what would make HER happy. I stress the "her" because women are all different and we all need and want different things. The thing that shows how well you know her would be what she would most appreciate. For some women it's material and expensive things. For other's its much more simple. What type of music does she like? Does she like books? Movies? The Opera? Going out or staying home? Does she have a favorite gemstone or a favorite flower? Does she have a signature perfume? Does she like to be taken out to dinner and pampered or does she just like to hang out at home and watch a good movie. The best gift to a woman is not so much the actual "gift" but in "knowing her well enough" to give her something that makes her feel you took the time to know her. Something that shows you've been listening and paying attention to her. Make sense?

Makes sense! Very well said. I think you are right. Knowing her well enough would lead to doing something sweet, something that she really wants. To be able to do that is really sweet. Thanks for sharing! God bless!

Respect, trust and love her. Treat her as an equal and make her feel special. This doesn't mean spend lots of money on her. Be generous with your time with her, do things she likes, be interested in her well being. The sweetest thing a guy can do is not just one big gesture. It is a lifetime of little thoughtful things that make a woman feel like one in a million.

Hie Selece, you certainly have blown her right off her feet for sure. I would think a guy who is handy ( DIY )around the house and able to fix things/do small things for me without being told is very sweet and sexy Thoughtful and being considerate in little small acts are very touching more so in the busiest moments - sending SMS or leaving messages showing that he still cares and thinking of the girl. Nice surprises is wonderful too. Cheers and have a great day!

Hi,selece,every girl may be not the same,so we can just talk about our own feeling :) As i'm a girl,and also have bf,i will feel happy when he tell me that he misses me and loves me very deeply,i think that's the words everyone likes to hear.But only words isn't enough,action can speak,he should do something which can let me feel he is loving me,the way can be in no form,even he work hard everyday has no time to be with me,he is all for the sweet life of our tomorrow,that's also ok... And i want to add he must be undivided to our love,otherwise,everything can be nothing.

Actually, I really liked your story, about singing to her. I love more than anything when my guy sings to me. I think it is so sexy and sweet, to listen to him singing. I would also love him to write a poem or song for me. Of course not all guys write, but that is what I find to be sweet.

i think the sweetest thing a guy could do for a girl is to become faithful and honest with her. to take care of her all the time and always there whenever she needs some support. we could also show our sweetness with a girl by some simple actions just by saying i love you, take care or by giving a good night kiss with her. some girls can't appreciate our simpliest things of how we really cared for her.

Thats really good. I was going to say, sing for her. Its a long time since you hear of women being serenaded but its the same principle. Singing for women is a great way to express your feelings. When you try to do it with straight words you can much up really bad. With singing you get both the words and the feelings across in a poetic way. Which reminds me. You can write poetry for her. If she liked the singing, she'll love the poetry.

I agree with you. I could really relate with this since I've done both. I have tried using poetry too, I think they would appreciate it. Thanks for sharing!

lots of hearts but none to give - lots of love but none to give
Dear friend,I do had a girl friend, may be long back in my college days latter she got married to another person whom she loved as her parents were not willing for our marriage. During the Valentine's Day that too my first and only love I gave a red rose with a gift of rolex watch. I came infront of her sang a song it goes like this. [b]This rose is red, red as blood, Blood comes from heart, Heart is for love, This rose for my love [/b] And I gave that rose to her.. She accept that and gave a kiss on my lips. The next day her parents came to know about our affair. She was no more seen to college and few days back I came to know her parents have shifted her to another college. Few months later I got a wedding invitation from her and she confessed that he has to go according to her parents wish. That was the end of my first and last love. Later I got married and now we are at the verge of divorce.

The Sweetest thing a Man can do to a Girl is to make her Realize that she's having a Guy who loves her more than anyone in this world. He has to make her feel his Love. Well, this is just a Feeling. Rather he can take her on a Date the way she likes it. He can do something which indirectly liked by her that means he expects her to be liking and also can surprise her.
