    I happened to be in a few card stores today and couldn't help notice all the men carrying baloons with hearts on them, stuffed toys that played romantic songs, and spending quite a bit of time reading over which card to get? They actually took more time than the women to pick out cards. It was really cute to see :)

    Hate to burst your bubble a bit...but are you sure they were being 'romantic' and not 'stressed out, cuz if they don't get it right she'll kill them' ?

    :D

    Do women still like single flowers? Poetry? Hand-made things?

    Along those lines...for example, my snookums went to dinner with a friend over the weekend and I had the Matre'd give her a rose in the middle of dinner. No note...but she knew who it was from.

    I guess it depends on the man.

    When I find a girl that can go from jeans and T-shirts to a cute mini skirt...not be concerned with materialistic toys other than what I can provide...carry her own weight financially as well as socially...enjoy camping and fishing and boating...as well as a short lunch at Mikey 'D's or any other fast food joint...stay monogomas vs hey the boss makes more so he is definetly sexier and more romantic then strays away to endulge her fantasies...then and only then will I find romance....so far it has eluded me since 1981 so I suspect I will remain a confirmed bachelor for all intents and purpose...Dating is fun and ya can take em home after the date and go home and be yourself without all the nagging! :dance:

    Anthing that says to her "You are special to me" is romantic. Doesn't have to be expensive.

    i like those things. I prefer Tim doing something nice/romantic for me (cook a nice dinner, create a hand-made card, etc.) as opposed to buying something, though I don't say 'no' to gifts...
