Romantically challenged?

After you get past the early stages of dating, the relationship turns to the familiar and comfortable. Most couples settle into a routine, sometimes dull relationship but there is still a spark there. Keeping the romance fresh and still hot can be a challenge. Especially when it doesn’t come naturally to everyone.

To make matters more challenging, men and women may view romance differently. If you don’t make the effort to find out what your significant other considers romantic, you could end up spinning your wheels.

What was romantic to your ex-girlfriend won’t necessarily work for your new woman. Ladies, just because the last guy liked something you did, doesn’t mean the new one will.

What do you do when the person you are dating is romantically challenged? Do you clue them in or drop hints?

How do you define romance?

I know Reio. When I don’t play is when my numbers tend to fall..

@disco ~ dang, what a way to tell me I’ve been lax in my duties. You are correct. I don’t even remember if I’ve greeted you with a Welcome to Blogsville!

Vests aren’t handed out all willy nilly. A week’s stay here doesn’t warant you a vest…You have a probation period to see if you can cut the mustard and it seems like you can. However, if you should start to get hit with shrapnel from opposing members, we may or may step in and help defend you. It depends on if you made an arse out of yourself, or if whether someone has truly misunderstood what you said… :lol: :lol:

Welcome!

Slim — You could also take him to his favorite electronics store & tell him to pick out what he wants. ;-) I know personally, I would be just fine with that. :-D

does warrant you…..

@Reio ~ you’re right, you haven’t established street cred here yet, but you are working on it.

@abc ~ that would be the only logical deduction for me as well…something in the book he wanted her to read without him pointing a particular behavior out to her.

disco — You are a Blogette, correct? In that case, the final step before full initiation (and receiving your very own blog vest) is that you need to send tastefully done photo of yourself, buck nekkided to myself, Purple, and Me.lo (aka Exiled) for review. For convenience, you can just send it to me & I’ll pass it along to those other chumps blog bros. :lol:

Yeah right….have me walking out of there with every electronic device that sounds cool: Old 8 track players, vcr’s and separate rewinder, 8mm film projection screen…

@SlimUno ~ I am very good at solving quite a few plots and I didn’t see that one coming AT ALL.

@Celisea ~ his acting style isn’t that much different than that in Taken. Taken was a freaking good movie.

The most romantic thing I have ever done is propose over a candlelight dinner.

The most unromantic was when I kilt a girl.

People today know how to have sex, but they don’t know how to flirt. People today know all about seduction, but not about romance. They can’t learn these skills from the movies and TV, since the writers don’t know about them, either.
