As the title suggests really, and not talking sexual, what romantic gestures do you do for your partner??
31/01/2013 at 14:34
You mean romance and sexual favors aren't one and the same?!
We aren't really a romantic couple. I pinch his bum, give him a stroke as I'm passing by, I'm forever kissing him - just little pecks as I'm passing, send him nice text messages throughout the day, tell him I love him constantly.....erm not sure really. Oh I bought him home thai food the other day. Now that is romance!

We are so not romantic. H used to be when we first got together, he would always come to my house armed with wine, chocolates, sweets, flowers and other nice treats. I bought him an iPod shuffle yesterday as he's been going out for a run a few times a week and needed something small to clip on to himself...does that count?? He wasn't all that grateful about it though, he didn't even give me a kiss or hug to say thanks so I don't think I'll bother with thoughtful things again :-(

Um were not really a romantic couple.
He did run me a bath last week & light candles.
We send nice texts to each other when apart, cuddle, kiss etc.
I would love to get surprised with 'Ive booked dinner, lets go' kind of things but £ is tight & we are also very happy infront of the fire with a take away.

we really really arent romantic at all , we do hold hands when not wrestling the children/pram etc and we kiss or have a cuddle
i let him have the bigger portion of food when serving up tea (honestly i have to shout him through and ask him what one he wants!), if we are in a restaurant and he thinks my meal looks better then usually for an easy life il swap and take his
my H recently bought me a ripple, he regularly buys me those chav cans of gin and tonic without me having to ask him
he went to madrid on a footy away day and brought me back a sticker saying 'champions of england' and a match programme that he later reclaimed as his, he is full of romance my H!

romantic either, he's probably more romantic then me. I'll send him nice texts when he's nightshift or he'll send me them but that's about it really.

No romance here. H used to be, but i seem to have knocked it out of him. He used to write me poems, buy me flowers quite frequently. Now it tends to just be a cuddle on the sofa if we get the chance.
31/01/2013 at 14:58
No romance here. I do his laundry, ironing and cook his dinner, thats romantic, right?
My H used to be really romantic in the early days
31/01/2013 at 15:51
Nope, not really romantic here either. We do kiss and cuddle in the house and say I love you.
31/01/2013 at 15:57
I'm not romantic. I only say "I love you" in response to him saying it.
31/01/2013 at 15:58
I buy him his favourite cake, ice cream or chocolates sometimes, send texts, kiss and cuddle etc, but generally I'm a bit crap at the romance.
MrDD on the other hand is so much better, he whisked me off to Rome for my 30th, as well as proposing, took me to London for my birthday last year for a night and to see a show, upgraded our room last weekend when he booked it, despite it originally being my present to him, and will always buy me things I'd like to eat or drink, and best of all, puts the electric blanket on if he goes to bed before me!

H is much more romantic than me. He surprises me with presents and meals out quite a lot. Quite sweet really. I get flowers and chocolates on occasions.
I go as far as booking nice places for anniversaries, birthdays etc.
31/01/2013 at 16:53
It depends what you think is romantic. We do nice things for each other, I'll buy his fave chocs or sweets so its gestures really, but we've never been huge on romance.

I feel horrible now that I don't think I do anything especially romantic.

MM - i cant have anyone cuddling me as i go to sleep, even the children, me and h are often at opposite ends of the bed
i think id poke my hs eyes out if he tickled me.
my h bought me loads of lovely bath stuff then blooming used them hiself!

Totally read that wrong, thought it was what he did for me! Oops..
Well.. For him, I make sure that his pants are ironed and folded how he wants them, and send them in airtight packages when he is in Afghan.
I buy him his favourite cakes when he has had a bad day
This week, I bought him cigarettes which I really resent doing, as I know he is struggling with work.
I often warm his slippers and lay his PJs on the radiator by the door when he comes in after a wet day (OK, this is more to save my carpet...)

31/01/2013 at 21:15
Not a fecking lot!
