I love big romantic gestures, but i have found that the little things mean more to me. I always seem to take them for granted.

The little things, they show more thought and care over a longer period of time. They are usually more personal, too.

Big romantic gestures make me kind of uncomfortable, I like the little day to day things that let me know you care.

The little things what make up one big "thing" Sometimes the little things could be romantic gestures too.

To some extent, both. I like big romantic gestures, but they're not practical and the little things are important.

Both, but the little things are what counts. We're all human and sometimes it is difficult to go all out so often with big romantic gestures. Though, those are nice, and should still happen!

I think the big romantic gestures are better, but it's the little things that make the relationship.

It's sad the little things tend to get overlooked (I sometimes overlook them and my partner has the same issue) while the big grand gestures stand out more. However in the long run its the little things that help nurturer a relationship.

Little things for sure but sometimes theyre the wrong little things for me, but i try not to overlook them just because they aren't exactly what i need.

Definitely the little things are what warm your heart and give you the comfort of feeling you have a happy life with your precious one...

The bigbig romantic gestures and other similar things are the extra, cause if you get those little loving things mostly then the bigger ones will take your breath away even more!!!
Like when my Master picks some flowers for me sometimes, just a few times a year, hell, I am about to lose my mind in the happiness when I see Him with the bouquet picked only for me, by Him, with His Beautiful Warmest Precious Paws, oh my God I tremble and howl all over then!!! ~shivers and grins happily

If you look back over the time you've been together, it's the big romantic gestures that you remember and the little things get lost in the daily routine.

I think it's really important to have both, but I like to be on the giving and the receiving end of little loving gestures regularly It feels good!

The big romantic gestures are fewer and farther between, I prefer the smaller ones. For example, over our time together, my partner has gotten me big gifts for big reasons - jewelry, expensive toys, etc. But one thing he did that I still remember (and that still means more to me) to this day - is getting me a $1 package of miniature candy canes the day after I told him my good childhood memories of eating those, and how I hadn't had any in years. I knew he had been listening, and went out of his way to do that. It still brings a smile to my face.

I find myself often times saying why don't you buy me flowers, and then the other day I realized I really overlook the real things he does.

A lot of little things first. Big romantic gestures for special occasions. I already know how I want my partner to propose to me if that ever happens for me.

Little things, always. I honestly dislike huge things, they seem cheap and false to me. I would prefer to have consistency.

While it's the little things that kill, they are what also make the bigger picture.

I lie both, though little things are preferable to large romantic gestures.

Sometimes a big romantic Gesture is nice, but the little things make the relationship feel good.

I think BRG put a lot of pressure on the receiver but little things are always pleasant and thoughtful. Every now and then a big romantic gesture is good to stir things up.

They're both important, but I'm a sucker for a GRG.

I really appreciate the little things. I appreciate the big stuff too but eh

romantic gestures oftentimes seems like a "get out of jail free" card. It shows you an ignore the other person for weeks or months, as long as you make one big payment in the form of a GRG. They work for the beginning of a relationship, but not afterwards.

Usually the romantic gestures come up for us as a way to make up for something so I'd definitely rather have the little things.

Definitely the little, unexpected, every day things that remind people you care.

Small things! big gestures are nice but little things require more thought. Bringing home dinner occasionally so I don't have to cook, leaving flowers laying around, little notes...make my heart pitter patter. He is also so intuitive. When we were still in college, he would pack my backpack the night before which meant he knew what classes I had the next day and which books I needed for said classes. He also can pick out what I need to get ready (jacket, shoes, etc) which speeds up the process a lot!

The little things, like making me a card, or picking me flowers out in the yard mean a lot to me. : ]

Funny you ask. I was just talking with a coworker about this.

While he buys me flowers all the time, I honestly value and enjoy when he plucks one carnation or rose from the garden for me, then when he buys a big, fancy bouquet.

It is all in how the gesture is made.

Mostly little things, but it's nice to do something sweepingly romantic every once in a while

They're both nice, can't we have both!?!? But I think in life, if the other person, especially a man does little things, it shows he's thinking more rather than just once in a while.

the little things add up and let me know that my hubby is thinking of me all the time.

I think good realtionships have both. The little things are more important in the long run, but couples do need an occasional grand gesture because your partner is the most important person in your life and we should affirm that in extra special ways every now and then.

Little things are more meaningful over a longer period of time, but big romantic gestures are nice every once in a while.

Hmm. Little gestures tend to go unnoticed, I feel. Big gestures are the one that you notice. But the one that makes a relationship last are the little gestures. So, little gestures. =]

I love the little things they mean more to me in a way, though neither me or my partner are romantic in a traditional sense so we both see the small things as being very romantic
