My husband is not the poem or song writing type, he is romantic in a way, I just love. For example when I was away for 3 weeks he fetched me at the airport with a bouquet of flowers and a bottle of champagne, when we got home, next to my bed was a little perspex card that read "reserved for Annie only" Quite often he will come home with something insignificant like a little pebble, saying he thought of me and looked around to see if he could find something to bring home and show me that he thought of me. Are you a serious poem and song writing romantic,or is it the smallest and simplest, everyday things, that can turn into something unique and special, with just a little thought and effort behind it

I think I am a mixture of both of these. I am a hopeless romantic who appreciates both small and big romantic gestures. I like a man who leaves me little sweet notes every day and still has the ability to blow me away with a huge surprise every now and then. I think it's very important for romance to exist in a relationship. I believe that if the relationship is going through a rough time, some simple romantic gestures can help to keep it alive. It also brings the spice into a relationship. It would be nice to be in a relationship where the man is totally interested in doing nothing but showing his woman he loves her through romantic gestures of varying sizes. I love little surprises like a card or even a little note just saying how much they love me. I love anything that has thought put into it. They could wake up early and cook me breakfast in bed too. I've never said no to sunny side up eggs on toast with a little bacon. I love it when they can come home from work or wherever and surprise me with something, a few flowers or whatever. It shows me that they were thinking of me during the day and that I was important enough to call attention to when they got home. I have had a few really romantic things done for me during my relationship with my other half. I remember one time in particular that was completely amazing. It was my birthday and he had planned a very elaborate surprise for me. It began with him having to leave my parent's house earlier in the day to set some of it up. He told me he was there laying out the candles and cutting out the footprints that were used later that night. Anyways, We first headed to our favorite restaurant for dinner. When that was finished we took a cab back here. We got out and went to the apartment door. He told me to wait outside while he got the last few little things ready. He went in and lit all the candles and then he told me to come it. He told me I had to read the certain footprints that had writing on them and to follow the instructions written on them. I opened the door to find a pathway made through the living room from the doorway marked with lit candles and littered with footprints. I began to follow the footprints collecting each one as I went. The first one told me to press play on the CD player. It was the latest album from my favorite band. I kept going down the path collecting more feet and arrived at the kitchen table. I read the next footprint that told me to take a sniff of what was on the table. There was a dozen red roses that were bought earlier in the day. They smelled absolutely gorgeous. After spending some time sniffing the roses I went back on to the path and made my way through the kitchen. When I got to the next footprint it told me to look in the freezer. I found a frozen ice cream cake that he had decorated himself. I loved that he decorated it himself as opposed to getting it decorated with something else. I put the ice cream cake back and followed the pathway to the bedroom door and knocked on the door. I opened the door when my other half said "Come in". i opened the door to find him sitting behind the bed. The bed had a pile of balloons on it. I was supposed to open each balloon and read the little saying on the paper from inside. Each one told me a little about why or how much my other half loves me. I got through them all and found a little purple box. I opened it up to find a promise ring in it. My eyes welled up with tears and I couldn't believe it. I hugged him tightly. It was one of the most romantic times I had ever had with him and I wish he would sometimes do more than he does when it comes to being romantic. In conclusion, I believe that I am both someone who loves both little romantic gestures as well as the humungous ones as well. I like it when a man is creative and can think of things to do to surprise me and catch me off guard. I love when that happens because it shows me that a guy has the ability to really keep me on my toes. Thanks for allowing me to share! xx

Talk about toes, this will keep me on my toes, that's for sure. You are one very lucky lady, and I'm sure all my lady MyLotter,s are envying you. Just one little draw back, if I were you I would hold onto your man for dear life! because you are going to get allot of girls responding to this response, demanding his phone number or address:D Thank you very much for your response I really enjoyed that. Take care and bask in his gestures!

You are so lucky with your husband. My husband was kind of romantic when we first got together but since having all of our kids he does not even try. I still however will sneak a card into his car so that he will find when he leaves for work, I also buy him little things and place them in odd places for him to find, and I will send him simple little I love you text messages occasionally. Sometimes I wish that things were like in the beginning but I understand that he is tired and supporting a family is not always easy.

You know what I think he is just lazy, next time you send him a card or little note, write on there you would like a reply to sender or better ask an open question and state that you want a written reply, in a very subtle and loving way off course, hope it works. Thank you very mush for the kind words

Neither me nor my fiance are very Romantic, at least in the traditional sense. Neither of us really flip over candle light and rose petals, and when we did try forcing ourself to be "traditionally" romantic on our last anniversary, it just turned out bad. We went to a bed and breakfast on a little island near our home, with rose petals, champagne, and candles in tow. Shortly after arriving, we set up the room, and we both felt so awkward and nervous, we left the room completely until it was bed time that night. We ended up popping some popcorn an watching X-Men 2 after a competetive game of the board-game "Life" (I won!) And really, that felt more romantic that the bedroom ever did. We find spending time together doing goofy things the most romantic. And we like to give eachother little presents that mark milestonesi n our relationshop. Like, when we first met, we were walking in a park and the city had marked some of the trees with pink ribbon to chop them down, and James vut a little piece off and made me a bracelet. Now, every once in a while he will bring home a piece of ribbon for me and it's just so sweet! -ML

Isn't this just a lovely story with a happy ending, and a better ending I must add. My point exactly with putting unnecessary pressure on your partner. It is with what you two feel comfortable with and what you conceive romance should be. Thx for sharing with us

There is nothing small and simple about you two. It sound like to people caring for each other. In a world full of misery it is always nice to hear when two people care for each other, even in there own way.

they say its the thought that counts. When someone truly loves you, the smallest thing and detail from him would mean the whole world to you. This is actually what shows if both partners care about each other or not. Wish you both Happiness.

You are so right there, I think sometimes people are inclined to kill romance with complicate gestures and events and then it puts allot of pressure on their partners, to equal or do better. Keep it simple and as you said, it's the thought that counts. Thanks for your kind words my friend and the same to you

My sweetheart and I are romantic in our own special ways. He wrote a poem for me that he e-mailed me and I discovered when my plane landed on Thursday. I sent flowers to his office one day. It's just KNOWING eachother, and the little everyday things that count for us.

I was gifted with the gift of music composition; together with my piano playing ability, I love writing songs for my girlfriend. Also, I love taking cliche love situations and making them real-life situations.

My husband will be going to work or somewhere and have the radio on. He will hear a song that reminds him of me and makes sure I hear them. Some of them are so sweet they make me cry. Or sometimes he'll go to the store for something and while he is there will pick something up for me for my beads or cake decorating hobbies. I didn't ask he just thinks oh she doesn't have this or something on that nature. Or if him and some of the guys are gunna go somewhere he will put his arms around me and hug me and let me know by saying babe you can go if you want.

When we go to the lake, my husband will find a special rock or shell to share with me. He greets me with smiles, and hugs. When he worked with plants, he brought me living plants, two roses, a star jasmine. He is a great appreciator. Gives me one piece of dark chocolate at night, when we go to bed. Makes coffee for me in the morning.

he's very thoughtful to do those things to you. i'm probably the kind of person who asks questions to check out if everything's ok with him. like if he ate lunch or if he's tired, simple things like that. i also give gifts on certain occasions.writing letters don't seem to work for my hubby but i manage to say sweet things that surprise him.

You see it is all about caring for one another, yes men are a bit lazy, I think when it comes to ready letters:) Keep treating him special if it makes you both feel good. Thx for the comment

I am a really bad romatic. I have to really think about being romantic but when I do, I am great at it in the traditional, leaving notes in his car kind of way. I do write poetry too but not very often because my husband is not really into it. He is definately not a tradtional romantic. His idea of romance is chekcing the fluids in my car and doing things that need to be done but that he doesn't think i should do. He also likes to give me massages. He once wrote me a love poem and it was terrific. I guess he is a lot like me, when we really think about it we can be really mushy romantic, but in our everyday lives we are more practical.

There you go, a love poem, I have never received one or have the talent myself to write one so lucky you! My husband won't even know where to start and If I should write him one he would most probably die of laughter! Which is exactly my point, that to can be romantic. It sounds you to get on like a house on fire! (at least as far as the romantic side is concerned)
