Being labelled as a romantic man is often considered undesirable by the most manliest of men. But why? Just because you’re great at pampering your woman doesn’t mean that you’re any less of a man. Spend the day playing football or fixing up your car for all I care; as long as at the end of the day you have time for the love, care and attention of your significant other than what’s the problem in that? And let’s face it lads, if you treat your girl right and perhaps cook her an impromptu romantic dinner then the benefits of what’s for dessert far outweigh any negative connotations a “romantic man” might get from his mates.
My last boyfriend couldn’t see this, and it’s where our problems started.
Being a romantic man isn’t hard, it’s the little things that count. A glance, a holding of the hand, eye contact. Yeah, gifts and flowers are great to get, but it’s not about that. It’s the things money doesn’t buy (sorry for the cliché there!). It’s your style and imagination that create the most romantic of moments with that woman you love.
If you know her (and you should) then you know what she likes and dislikes. You know the little things that make her day. Thing of what she likes and build a romantic event around it. If she likes walks on the beach, why not take her for a picnic on the shore (granted, it is winter now – perhaps I should’ve started writing this in May!). Of course, you’ve gotta make sure it’s about her. Don’t take her shopping to the local DIY store just because ‘she likes shopping’. It’s all about making it her time.
So, take shopping for an example. You go clothes shopping with her because it makes her feel amazing. It makes her feel beautiful, and she enjoys it. It makes her happy and that should make you happy. She’ll ask your opinion, model for you, ask her if she looks sexy. It’s a romantic thing to see how your woman looks and carries herself as she moves in something that makes her feel amazing. And let’s face it guys, who hasn’t tried to coax their other half into a lingerie shop and been happily surprised when she lets you pick something out for her to wear that night at home 😉
Being romantic is a win-win, and believe me if you make her feel loved and cared for then she will return the feeling in oodles. It really makes a relationship click, and keeps things fresh.
So men, don’t be afraid, show your romantic side, and your relationships will grow better, for sure! Women? Well you already know your man likes to be romanced so I don’t think I need to say any more!
