Do you consider yourself a romantic?

My fiance and I aren't all that romantic and I think it's something we really need to work on. The last 'romantic' thing I did for him was surprise him with a coffee last week - and that hardly counts! When my fiance and I were broken up he went travelling overseas. I was with someone else at the time and thought that we were through for good, but still had deep feelings for him. One day my mom called and said there was a package at their house for me. Inside the package was a diary that my now fiance, then ex boyfriend, had kept the entire time he was travelling. He wrote the whole thing to me, and it was amazing. A lot of it was just telling me what he was doing, stuff like that, but a lot of it was also about how he felt about me and how much he missed me. It made me feel pretty special. That was definitely the most romantic thing he, or anyone, has ever done for me.

i think thats the sweetest thing ive ever heard!! thats amazing sometimes all it takes is knowing that the ex still has feelings for you even though you thought you'd moved on. thats really romantic!! and as for the coffee, i think thats nice (i surprised my boyfriend with a coffee last week too LOL) we're not all that romantic either. thanks for sharing that story jesssp

One of the things that made it even more amazing was that it was a total surprise. He would say little things in emails every now and then that told me he still had feelings for me but I had no idea how much until I got that journal. I was the one moping around way up here with my boring life and unsatisfactory relationship thinking that he was down there living it up and having the time of his life.

Well yes i do consider myself romantic. I wasn't always romantic though. I started being romantic when i met my girlfriend which was 2 years ago. She inspires me to be romantic. I have a secret though... I go to http://www.romance4u.info to get romantic ideas and romantic tips. I guess its not that original but atleast im trying my best.

i do not consider myself to be one and my partners till date have not commented on me as a romantic person. the most i did was to buy a ring for my gf who became my ex-wife later for christmas. i hid the ring box in my car glove compartment. we went for a movie and gave her a bouquet of flowers and told her that that was the only thing i could afford. although, she said that she did not mind the gift, i can sense that she was disappointed as she expecting something more than flowers. after the movie, i send her home and along the way i pretend to ask her to find a CD in the glove compartment and while searching she came across the ring box and was extremely happy.....but that not the end, cos the box is empty and guess where i hid the ring? it was along in the bouquet of flowers and she did not realised it cos i thnk she was disappointed with the flowers so she did not pay much attention to them.

that sounds sweet. awww did you have to tell her where the ring was? LOL as long as the date ended up going great, but thats really funny haha even though you don't consider yourself romantic, the little things once in a while really make a big difference and i dont think a lot of people know that. being too romantic and constant romance just gets tiring and boring LOL

I do consider myself to be romantic as a wife. My husband is romantic too but over the years the light kind of went out on that stuff so to speak! But that is alright. We do have our good times together. Every now and again it is nice to have dinner by candlelight with a home cooked meal. We don't find the time too much anymore with the little one around. I think the most romantic thing I might have done was just a simple bubble bath with candles surrounding the place.
