Small Romantic Gestures

It is not all about the grand gestures but the little things you do “just because.” A relationship with romance lasts longer than one without. Men and women can keep a fire burning when they keep the romance in the picture. Romance is easy. All it takes is a little imagination or thought. Many people tend to lose the romance after a short amount of time. When couples become too comfortable or too wrapped up in their careers, romance will begin to fade. Making an effort to show that you care is priceless and essential for the romance to last.

One way people say "I love you" includes doing the obvious things like surprising the one they love with unexpected flowers. Bringing home flowers for a special occasion like an anniversary or birthday is nice but bringing them home just to say you were thinking of them, is a romantic gesture. Sending flowers to your girlfriend or wife’s job will get her recognition and show you care. Women love for their friends to see that their man cares about them.

Cooking a nice dinner and setting the mood with candle light and soft music can be a good gesture for romance. A fire in the fireplace and a bottle of wine will set the mood for romance. Spending the quiet time with the one you love is romantic in itself. Sometimes all the better half wants is your time.

People do not stop and think about washing the dishes as a romantic gesture but it can be. When someone has had a hard day at work, let them go and sit down with a comfortable pillow and wash the dishes for them. Finish it off with a good glass of wine and a foot massage. This is very romantic, especially to women. When a man stops and realizes that his wife may be too tired to wash dishes, and does it for her.

A note left in a packed lunch that says, “I love you” is a good romantic gesture that will take that special person by surprise. Packing a special lunch for your partner can make their lunch time special, especially when they find the note.

Planning a special date with the one you love is romantic. Pack up a picnic lunch and a blanket, drive somewhere where you two can be alone. Make sure to pack things like grapes and strawberries. These foods lead to feeding each other. Take out the blanket and picnic and spend some time alone. Read your lover a romantic story or poem from a book.

Putting a little bit of effort into being romantic is easy. It does not have to cost a lot of money to show you care. People that do things for no reason other than to show they care are very romantic. People that take time to go on a date night with the one they love are making a romantic gesture to keep the romance in the relationship. Dinner and a romantic movie are perfect for setting a mood for romance.

Women love to receive letters from their men. A love letter can be special to anyone. When couples let the other know that they remember special times or events, they let their partners know that their life together is important. Love letters are a great to express things that you may find it difficult to say in person.

Romance does not have to be a grand gesture. Romance can be bringing your partner a cup of coffee in the morning. Romance can be a single flower. Romance can be holding hands while watching television or sharing a blanket on the couch. A midnight stroll down the beach, holding hands and then a kiss in the moonlight or watching a sunset or waking to a sunrise can be special as well.

There are so many ways to show romantic gestures. Just remember, a romantic gesture is never small, no matter what you do. Just never forget to be romantic and take the time to do those special things that make someone feel extra special and loved.
