Important Romantic Things to Say and Do
Being best friends is one of the most important aspects of being a couple.
1. When you wake in the morning tell her that you love her and also let these words be the last phrase that you say to her before you close your eyes at night.
Use the phrase I love you as a greeting each time you pass by your girl. Saying I love you really does help to strengthen the bond between a couple. Say I love you often.
2. Be nice to her friends and relatives. They are as much a part of her world as your friends and relatives are yours.
3. Focus on the positive and try to compliment your lady at least once every day. Try not to notice or comment on the negative issues. You may be surprised how often this gesture of kindness will be returned to you.
4. Be a good listener. Women are communicators but men often forget this. Keep the conversation flowing between the two of you. Encourage her to talk about her day. Confide your feelings to her and discuss issues that concern you. Make sure that some time is spent each day simply talking with your partner as you would with a close friend. That is what she is.
Attentiveness and Togetherness
5. Respect your partner's accomplishments. Compliment her on her achievements and encourage her to follow her dreams. When you are a true friend to your partner then your role as lovers forms a much deeper emotional connection.
6. Kiss her good-bye when you are leaving and kiss her again when you are with her once again.
7. Hold her hand when you are walking together or just sitting on the couch watching television together. Touch without sexual implication is very important in a relationship. Let her know that you simply enjoy being close to her.
8. After you finish a meal help to clear the dishes from the table. Never just get up from the table head to the television and leave the entire clean up for her. Helping out in the home is one of the most romantic things that a man can do.
9. Purchase an apron and be sure to put it on to help with a few of the household chores. A man doing housework is actually a very romantic image. There is nothing more attractive than a man doing dishes.
10. A tired stressed out lover is not going to feel as romantic toward you as a relaxed and well rested one will. Pamper her with a meal at a restaurant at least once every couple weeks. If you are married with kids then spend time with them so she has time for herself. Let her have the opportunity to leisurely soak in the tub or to simply put her feet up and relax for a couple hours with a nice hot cup of tea.
Little Details are so Important in Creating a Romantic Gesture
