Do you want to be more romantic? Do you want to be the guy that your girlfriend can’t live without? If so, then you’re in the right place. I’ve taken a look at what makes romance work and put together some tips on how you can be more romantic in your relationship.
1.Keep your relationship exciting.
Spice up your sex life. Make it a priority to have sex at least once a week, and alternate who initiates it. Trying new positions or adding new toys can make it more exciting. You can also set aside time each week to plan a romantic evening or weekend away together.
Have date nights at home. If you’re on a tight budget, staying home doesn’t have to be boring. Order take-out and rent movies or play board games together with snacks and beverages of your choice.
Give each other massages. Physical touch is important, so give each other massages often — even if it’s just for 10 minutes a day before bed. Your partner will love the attention, and you’ll both benefit from the stress relief.
Surprise each other with gifts, cards or notes of appreciation. Take turns surprising each other every week by doing something extra special out of the blue. This can be anything from making coffee in the morning to leaving notes of encouragement on the mirror when you go to work in the morning
2.Flirt, flirt, flirt every day.
If you’re dating someone who is also your friend and if you’re attracted to them, don’t be afraid of showing it! Flirting is what keeps the spark alive. Send a flirty text message or call them just to say “I love you.” It will make their day!
3.Learn to be a good listener and leave behind your own agenda.
Let her talk to you about her problems and insecurities while showing you that you care. This is one of the best ways to show that you love and support her.
4.Hold hands when you’re walking in public.
You can also surprise your partner by holding hands when they least expect it. For example, grab their hand when you’re sitting on the couch or at dinner. This is an especially nice move if you usually don’t show affection in public.
5.Make emotional deposits as often as you can.
Many people think that romance is all about the big gestures: chocolates, flowers or expensive jewelry. But these things aren’t really very romantic at all. These gestures aren’t bad, but if you rely on them alone, you’re missing out on many opportunities to show your partner love and appreciation.
The best way to add romance on a daily basis is by making emotional deposits into your partner’s “love bank.”
What do we mean by this? It’s very simple: Think about how nice it would be if your partner did something for you — something small and thoughtful but above and beyond what he or she normally does
6.When you’re out, make it obvious that you’re together.
Hold hands or link arms when the two of you are walking around together. Give each other side hugs or kiss on the cheek once in a while for no particular reason.
7.Do something unexpected for your partner every week.
Plan a date night once a week.
Express your love and appreciation in front of others.
Compliment your partner when they least expect it.
Give unsolicited kisses.
Tell them how you feel when you’re alone together.
Send romantic text messages during the day.
Give gifts “just because.”
Give them a back rub or foot massage while they’re watching TV.
8.Take up an activity that your partner enjoys, even if you don’t like it much.
Spending time with each other doing things you both enjoy is very important in a relationship, but sometimes doing things that only one of you enjoys can be equally important too.
9.Send your partner a love letter once in a while.
If you’ve been together for a while, it may be time to express your love in a new way. Sure, you tell them you love them all the time, but have you written it down lately?
Tell her how much you love her and appreciate her, buy her flowers or gifts for no reason, write her love notes or emails, send her sweet text messages while she’s at work, call her during the day just to say hi, give her foot massages every once in a while, perform random acts of kindness for her such as washing the dishes when it’s not your turn, give her long hugs and kisses throughout the day, help out around the house by vacuuming or doing laundry for no reason, go on fun dates such as picnics or amusement parks or dinner at nice restaurants sometimes instead of just staying home all the time
11.Give her gifts
If you want to be more romantic, go out and do something nice for your girlfriend, such as buying her a small gift for no particular reason. You can also make gifts for her, like writing her a poem or drawing a picture of what she means to you.
12.Act like your happy to be with her.
Put your phone away and give her your full attention when you’re with her. If you’re on a date, turn off your phone completely so that you’re not tempted to check it every five minutes. Pay attention to what she’s saying to you and ask her questions about herself or things that she cares about. Your phone can wait — give your full attention to the real-life person sitting across from you who deserves it most!
Takeaway: These are some strategies that will help you to be more romantic in a relationship.
