What's the most romantic thing a man or woman has done for you? Ever?
Met me at work, with flowers. Took me downtown, checked into Ritz-Carlton at John Hancock, then bought me clothes for theater and the weekend. That was a 'date.' Too bad the relationship didn't work out, but fond feelings do. I still remember the plays, "Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?" and "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf." Was a very good weekend. Ever been to Lawry's?
I'm easy.. What *I* consider the most romantic are the simple little things like simply saying "Was just thinking about you - I love you." That shit'll make my week; far more than the flowers, dinners, gifts, etc...
Picked me up from work as we had plans for me to help him find some clothes. He changed the plans by taking me to a park, pulling out a folding table and chairs from the trunk with a table cloth, candles, flowers, and a picnic dinner. It was nice.
I've had some men make the grand gestures. The roses, the shows, the proposal on top of the Empire State Building, all that stuff. But the most romantic things I can think of are the little every day things.
I agree with that, for marriage and long term relationships. Even there though, the 'grand gestures' are fab.
Depends how it's done, I guess. They can be fab, or the man can be trying so hard to impress it's almost uncomfortable. I'd rather live without the grand gestures and have him just be himself.
If done too early in a relationship, I agree. However, the grand gestures, whether the special picnic or unannounced weekend, go a long way to building a feeling a specialness. Most of us can't afford those things, more than every year or so, but they are so special, they are the things of diaries.
came over to my house and woke me up on valentines day with chocolate and flowers.
To me, that's a grand gesture and makes one smile, years later.
