    Do guys really like romantic getaway weekends, like, say a couple of nights at a B&B? It seems to me that these kinds of trips are usually a woman's idea, based on an idealized romantic notion, and guys just go along because they think they have a good chance of getting... well... you know. :kiss2:

    I guess it sounds kind of sexist and cynical, but am I right?

    Depends on what activities are planned over the weekend. Inside and outside of the bedroom.

    Romantic weekend does, for guys, indicate a certain amount of ...well, you know....

    But what else will be happening?

    Unfortunately, yes. Guys would love to just sit around the house instead of driving somewhere. Or maybe that's just me. I admit I'm more boring than most.

    Are you sitting down?

    Usually... shopping and some sight-seeing. Sorry!

    I can't say that would be my idea of a week end well spent, but that's just me.

    We used to go to this little city (Kingston), along the St. Lawrence quite often. It houses about 3 or prisons and one huge univeristy. Real diverse population to say the least. It also has a lot of historic and battle siites within the city and along the river. Great party town too, lots of different bars and shopping.

    If the romantic getaway b&b was near, say, a football stadium, and under the pillow of the bed in the B&B were, say, tickets to a game at said stadium, then a guy would be much more interested in going for reasons other than booty. Most B&B weekends end up very girly, and hence, the guy's natural reaction is to claim he's only going to please the woman and get some. ;)

    In general, the female gender over-romanticizes to the point of being unfair. Expectations are often set entirely too high, in my experience, and the focus quickly shifts from "look at the romantic things he did" to "how come he didn't do everything I expected?" Is it really romantic to have expectations of romance to meet anyways?

    One can also ask "Is romance an 'act' or is romance a 'state of being'...'circumstance'? Attitude? Sure 'acts' can be romantic. But even romantic acts are not necessarily 'romance'.

    That is actually ok.....I am one of those rare guys who likes to shop.

    Sight-seeing is good too.

    For me....on a vacation anywhere really, there needs to be a lot to do. Yes, schedule some down time...relaxing by the pool, beach, etc....

    But not the whole time. Shopping, sightseeing, good meals, pool, spa, etc..

    The other things will take care of themselves..... ;)

    Also, if the B&B were somwhere that required a lengthy drive through the mountains, and say some coastal twisties, it would entice some of us more. ;)
