Put the man in Romance!

I have a friend who has admitted that she is romantically challenged. She has NO idea how to be romantic with her guy. The relationship is new so he has spent most of the time and effort in romancing her. Now she is eager to reciprocate – and if not the same degree of romance, something very close.

So far he has surprised her with tickets to a play, made a picnic for them inside his living room when the weather didn’t cooperate. He even took her car to be cleaned! The man is a keeper, ya’ll! He needs to be pampered and doted on just as much. So what do men consider romantic gestures? (You know the sexy things they enjoy doing before we get naked??)

What are the best ways to romance a man who has been so romantic in his own efforts? Should women feel pressure or obligation to match the same level of romance?

What is the most romantic gesture a woman has ever shown you, guys?

Ladies, do you consider yourselves to be romantic or romantically challenged? Be honest! What is the last romantic thing you did for someone?

@CC: I think you’re thinking of Michael Evans, aka Lionel Jefferson, and producer of Good Times. He died several years ago.

I listen to What’s Goin’ On the other day and couldn’t agree with you more.

The love tunes and seductive stuff never dies. Luther will live on foreever at least as much as Mrs. PG has anything to do with it. Never too much get almost too much play in my house. Luckily I like that song too.

Disco, I see, but for me sometimes the romance happens when you’re not trying to make it happen, it’s just something you say or do that just makes feel all something inside. Just makes me smile :-D

Lamont, too, ha become a preacher. Maybe, it was the pants.

I am glad that I didn’t get height and was able to play pro basketball in the early 80s. Nuthugers & long tube socks were standard issue for the NBA. Thanks to Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls to free the boys.

Michael Evans was the character on Good Times. Michael Evans played Lionel Jefferson on the Jeffersons.

No Micheal from Good Times’ real name was Micheal Evans and I don’t think he was on the Jeffersons…albeit they did have “two” Lionels..

Uncle Luke’s Scarred was mine ringtone for a long time. “Santa Claus Coming, Trick coming, Pocahontas coming, Free Willy, Wooo wooo, woo! ”

Now I have no ringtone because I keep it silent most of the time.
