In my humble opinion, I think that people make a huge mistake when it comes time to think of some romance ideas. Everyone seems to be stuck in the same old cliche about what romance is. Sure, lingerie and a candlelit dinner can be romantic and sexy, but it isn’t the only option. As a matter of fact, for many people it is not even the best option.
So, how do you find the best romance ideas? Well, first I would start with your own relationship. Instead of just doing what everyone else does or what the t.v. ads make you think you should do, why not tailor your romantic gesture to you and your partner and what you both like?
At the very least this will provide you with more opportunities for romance. Lingerie and chocolate can actually get kind of boring, believe it or not. It’s better to be able to spice things up by changing things up every now and then.
So, for example, if the two of you love the outdoors and enjoy going camping. Why not go camping together? You can still do the candlelit dinner and lingerie but you are adding a whole other element and making the whole experience uniquely yours and your partner’s.
Suppose the two of you love live music, or heck, even gambling. A nice romantic getaway to a nearby town or a casino may be great. Most people wouldn’t consider a casino to be overly romantic, and neither do I on the surface, but to me romance is about doing something special with someone special.
Whatever it is doesn’t really matter that much as long as you both enjoy it and you can both share it (and it’s something you don’t do all the time, that gets boring).
All of these big romantic gestures are great and can be a lot of fun, but what about everyday? When was the last time you did something out of the ordinary and made a Tuesday something special?
I think too many couples forget the day to day things they can do to be romantic. It’s a lot easier and less expensive than the big gestures but it can sometimes mean even more to your partner.
So, want to know what types of things I’m talking about? Ok, here are some ideas:
1. If your partner is the person who usually helps the kids with their homework or gives them a bath, why not take over those duties for them one night out of the blue?
It might not sound like much but giving your partner a break and telling them to instead use that time to go soak in the tub or read a book or whatever can really be romantic.
It shows them just how much you respect what they do and you want to let them relax for a little while. Something so simple, and unexpected, can do so much to make your partner feel loved and appreciated. And that will make them appreciate you too.
2. How about making your partner’s favorite meal « just because »? Again, the spontaneity of it can make them feel loved and special. That is always a good thing.
I know these suggestions are simple but don’t discount them. Big, out of the ordinary events can be great romance ideas, but they aren’t the only thing you can do to let your partner know you love and respect them.
