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?

One double chocolate cupcake with cool whip topping served on a nice plate by candlelight after dinner can be romantic. Right? Yeah. Imma go with that. One 6hrs old cold tiny cake served in the dark for my loving husband this evening. RO. MAN. TIC.

It’s about time for my babies to be coming home. You all have a good rest of the day. I promise I will not speak to all again for the rest of the year. LOL

“One double chocolate cupcake with cool whip topping served on a nice plate by candlelight after dinner can be romantic.”

Raqi — If you make that 2 double chocolate cupcakes with whipped cream topping, and replace the cupcakes with some nice double chocolate boobies, that would be even more romantic, IMO… lol

For me, I had to have respect for the person inside the male body before he got the position of husband. Not only the respect but the admiration that set him apart from others. That which made him special.

To me, giving one the respect and the position before he’s earned it is like putting the cart before the horse.

I agree with Raqi – me not mistreating you as another human being is not the same as my having respect for you.

Hey y’all!

Finally got free long enough to pop in and say hi. They got me so busy I don’t know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt. :lol:

How’s everyone been? I miss the blog. :cry:

Hey Randyt – long time, no read. :wink:

Heeeeey Swiss and Kimmie and other DGDs in the house! Was thinking of y’all the other day when I received an email re: 2012 football tix.

LOL@Swiss and Kimmie. Don’t need you to bring a thing except your smiling faces. We keep a fairly well stocked bar, beer, mimosas, etc, and plenty of food on the grill and on the table. :grin:

One last question Randy and Blackfoote.

Do you all receive or appreciate romance better when it’s the observance of an event (i.e. Birthday, Anniversary) or merely just because?

This topic got me planning a nice romantic evening for September (his birthday) or October (our anniversary). Or June (because it’s June right now LOL).

I just asked my brother over the phone if “Men Love Romance”. He said men love to be fed and f*****. He said feed the man plenty and f*** frequently and he will be a happy fellow for many years to come. LOL

Okay I am gone for real this time.

Whats up guys!!

I do appreciate romance, I love the effort put forth to make me happy. Now on the same token don’t halfA@# on the gesture. I say if your going to do something nice, go all out. The effort means its planned out from start to finish. Examples, the gas tank on full, reservations made, hotel booked, slide me some money and tell me to get my haircut. What I’m say is Plan an actual day of activities for us ladies. Include some type of sporting event or comedy tickets and through out the day send us a sexy text msg showing what awaits us at the end of our night. If your bold enough, venture outside of the normal bed room activities. Maybe some public uhhh risky behavior. I could go on and on and on… Just don’t get arrested..

“If your bold enough, venture outside of the normal bed room activities. Maybe some public uhhh risky behavior.”

Mr. U — That reminds me… I meant to chime in with this the other day when the topic was taking vacations together, but the public debauchery ties in, too. I can tell you the exact moment I knew I was going to marry Mrs. Swiss. It was on our first trip together, in Cancun, when she f__ked my brains out (totally initiated by her, btw) in the outdoor hot tub in broad daylight in the middle of the day. lol I already knew all the other great things about her, but once I got a glimpse of that inner naughty side she’d be saving for just the right moment, I knew I had to put her on lock down. lol

Sorry Raqi our system went down for a while, your brother answered your question the same way I would have. Just because for me, of course anniversarys, birthdays are a given so to speak. Food and a bed are winners, everything in between is icing on the cake.

Outside of that not much blog interaction…lol You don’t know this but that name was present a couple of years ago but popped in sporadically. He would say something crazy and end with “YEAH” But that’s all we know about him. Maybe we should put together a blog patrol to be on the safe side.
