Men love romance!

You don’t have to buy a Lamborghini for your man to show him romance. No disrespect to that Kardashian lady because buying a car for a man is quite a romantic surprise. Men dig (good!) surprises, though and women can take a cue from Kim K about showing a man he should be pampered too.

Quiet as its kept, a lot of women forget that they need to put in some work in the romance department. There are even women who are kind of clueless about wooing a man. Not the same as seducing – mind you.

When it comes to romance and pampering, what do men like?
Guys, what was the most romantic thing a woman has done for you?

What kind of romantic things do you like to do for your men, ladies?

randy – forgive me but here I go. first let me say that I agree with you. men are relatively simple, not that complex, don’t need much and respect goes a long way. the issue I have is that a lot of men don’t command respect and many don’t deserve it. now don’t get me wrong – I’m not talking about the general common courtesy type respect that every human being is entitled to. I’m talking respect on another level. in fact when discussing these matters with friends I’ve started using the word admire/admiration in place of respect because I’ve generalized the term respect. so, in essence, I’m saying I don’t seek a man I respect (because in theory I respect all men) but a man that I admire. yeah – my friends say I think too much. lol.

disco – I can relate to your feelings about respect versus admiration. It actually perfectly explains how I feel about my husband. More than just respect, I admire him. In fact, thinking back, I felt that admiration for him before I fell in love.

Disco I have always been taught that respect is earned. While my moral standards may not allow me hate a person, that does not mean I have respect for them. I don’t have respect for a man just because he is a man. I have respect for a man that does what a man is supposed to do.

Admiration and respect are both quite personal with me. I don’t believe in mistreating anyone however you have to earn my respect. Respect goes along way and not everyone is deserving of that.

Blackfoote I don’t remember how long we have been reading each other here but I have to tell you that I can be a witch. LOL My bestie talks about how passionate I am and tells me that it works against me sometimes.

I had a birthday back in April. We all got together to have a nice evening for my birthday. While amongst the friends the hub rubbed me the wrong way in something that he said and tried to brush it off as nothing. I told that joker later that evening if he didn’t take his hands off me I was going to break his fingers. I was holding and twisting them as I was saying it.

I am not nice all the time. LOL And it runs just as deep as my being nice does.

I too believe women should respect men but not under the guise of that being an automatic because of the gender. I believe you respect those that are doing it and getting it done. If you’re living by a different set of rules, prescribe to the do as I say not as I do plan, don’t live up to your fullest potential then no you haven’t earned respect. I agree too that admiration is that extra that goes beyond.

Elijah – I am here…..yes? :)

M-e-l-o you are correct. My mother told me that I was her meanest child and very sassy.

I have done some pretty mean things in my life and have made some very piercing statements too.

I remember before the hub and I married he had made me angry. I did all I could to not say what I wanted to say. He said if looks could kill that look I was giving him would put me away for life on manslaughter.

Hey Celisea. Imma tell him you said so the next time he tells me that he is going to send me home to my daddy for being mean to him. LOL

In an argument once (yeah another argument) I reminded him that my dad says the husband and wife both are to OBEY THE MARRIAGE. He grabbed me by the arm saying he was going to take me back to my daddy. He doesn’t know this but I talked to me father about the situation that led to the whole incident and my dad agreed with him. But that’s our little secret.

raqi – re respect being earned. yep. I get it which is why I put out there that “general” respect due a person as a human being. in that regard I’ll have to give each person the benefit of the doubt and give them general respect until I can determine if they are worthy of more. I have to co-sign celisea’s statement that I can’t get onboard with respecting a man just because he was born with a “dangling participle” between his legs. that quality alone doesn’t warrant respect. and I won’t even crack the joke that some of those participles wouldn’t pass inspection. okay. sorry. guess I snuck that in there.

Raqi – I was going to mention making a glaze, but again you need powdered sugar. Pounding the regular stuff won’t cut it!LOL!! Do you have any chocolate chips? If so, you could melt them and spread on the cupcakes, like a ganache. Or if you have some Cool Whip and cocoa you could mix the 2 into a frosting.

Kimmie I am putting chocolate chips in the cupcake batter. I like the coolwhip and cocoa idea though. I will go with that.

Unless I can sifter the sugar to powder it. LOL I just love cream cheese icing. I guess I could go buy some but going to the store for one thing just does not sound like something I want to do. I have cool whip and cocoa already so that is what I will use. Thanks.

Disco exactly. That protrusion of skin and muscle only makes one male. A man is how he carries himself. When one acts with respect I will respect them.

My idea of respecting someone is not the same as not mistreating them.

The hub had a glass of juice in the den on the table. When he walked back into the room it had gotten knocked over. Liz had that look like “it wasn’t me. Mason did it.” The hub starting scolding my baby pointing his finger and him reminding him (a one year old) that he said not to touch the glass.

Me knowing that Liz did it because she bumped the table and lies like that on Mason I quickly went to rescue of my baby. I grabbed that little girl and put her in front of her dad and told him ‘you mother did it. Get her.’ Not only does she have that woman’s name she has her evilness also.

Yall know it went from NO MASON!!! to “Elizabeth you made a mess. Help daddy clean it up”.

I think the differentiation between respect and admiration is apropos.

When you’re a child, you respect your teacher because the situation commands it; your parents because they insist upon it. When you’re in the military, you respect the grade, not necessarily admire the man — you offer respect because it’s completely appropriate to do so.

Similarly, a husband deserves respect not because of his behavior, but because of his position. A wife deserves sacrifice for her benefit on behalf of her husband, not because her behavior warrants it, but because of her position.

You may not admire a man because of whatever reason under the sun, but if you don’t offer him respect, you’re likely to get a negative reaction from him. It’s the way men are wired. Women are similar, but different — respecting womanhood is not the same as respecting manhood.
