What is your romance style?

Everyone is different. Some people want grand romantic gestures from their partners; dozens of flowers and expensive dinners out. Other people prefer something more understated; setting out your coffee mug in the morning or making your favorite dinner at home. What romantic gestures do you prefer?

I definitely wouldn't complain about something elaborate, but I think the little day to day things can be more meaningful.

You couldn't have said it better than that...

We are weird. Our idea of romance may seem odd to everyone else, but we are very content with each other.

I complained to my husband and son awhile back that I could not understand why, when they drip water down the stainless steel dishwasher they don't wipe it up. It leaves water spots that take my elbow grease to remove.

Yesterday, I saw him wiping up the dishwasher. He spotted me watching and we exchanged smiles. It was a huge turn-on that he cared enough to remember what I said and took the initiative.

My husband loves it that I get up with him in the morning (even though I don't have to) and make his oatmeal and grind his coffee for him. It makes him smile and starts his day off right. I love sending him out the door in a good mood.

I want that eye glace from my wife that says she loves and wants me. It is a certain glance that, for some reason, I can read. It's like the movie, it's the little things that count!

I am married to an older, distinguished Frenchman, so romance is always in the air, but I prefer something simple and sweet to something elaborate, after all sometimes the simpiliest things are the most beautiful...

I've always told him that I don't want him to do big things for me because I prefer the little things. I feel they mean more and are more heartfelt.

When you go all out it usually is way to much and not worth it. Thats why I do something simple but a lot of fun.

I love the little day to day things my husband does. Even something as simple as holding hands while we watch TV, or when he'll cook dinner for me if I have a long day at work makes me so happy!

I'm pretty happy with any romance. Small things make me happy, big things make me happy. He does something, at least one thing every day that's pretty romantic, or to me anyways.

Sometimes when he just puts his hand on my leg makes me happy, or says "Baby." He's always got all kinds of crazy ideas to make me smile. I'm very lucky!

ROmance requires money and we don't have any of that. We're well past the stage of sweet notes and stuff like that.

Maybe I expect too much. Sometimes I do, I guess. But I like the simplicity of being naked and in bed, laying close to my husband and having that somewhat slower love-making with a deep connection. We always look into each others eyes during sex and it makes for the most intense orgasm, especially when we can see the others eyes and facial expressions during climax. Of course, simple romance isn't only during sex. I like those nights at home on the couch watching whatever is on TV, or preparing dinner WITH my fiance. Ever since we were teens we've danced in my kitchen to whatever was on the radio.

Aside from simplicity, I also like romance - over the top! I disagree with the post that said it requires money, because it's definitely a lot cheaper than buying sex toys or even a bouquet of flowers. Although those things are fun. Sometimes before he gets home I'll light the bedroom candles, turn of all the lights, and just be there already undressed for him. It doesn't necessarily mean we are going to have sex, and he knows that. We often just pull out some lotion and massage out the kinks that our long days at work put into us. But once the candles are on, Everything suddenly becomes romantic. If I have a little extra cash, I'll buy some rose petals off of eden and our favorite massage oil kit and we'll both give each other romantic massages with expensive oils, rather than lotion. Then, after we're done with that, I sprinkle the petals and we both just relax in the tub and often we fall asleep before getting to the love-making.

Other somewhat elaborate things to do that are cheap is buying a hallmark card and leaving it randomly in the house... after writing in it, of course. My fiance does this for me a lot, and I think it's so sweet. Being a female, I've checked the price, and they are inexpensive at times. But once he bought the most beautiful $20 card, right after he proposed to me. I think it's a sweet thing to do, even if it was a dollar store card. It can really brighten up a girl's day... I even do it for him and he loves it. But he still does it a lot more than I do.

Altogether, the rose petals and massage kit cost me around $40... However, the massage kit lasts for months and the rose petals don't all need to be used in one sitting. I think they last us about 3 or 4 baths. So it's worth it. I haven't done these things in a while with my fiance, and we've been frustrated lately. I'm so glad I read this post because it's like I've known what to do all along to fix it, but I've forgotten.

I love when my man does sweet little things that show he's thinking about me, like leaving me a fresh glass of water on my bedside table when he goes to bed before I get in, so that I can just crawl in immediately once I'm home. He's also wonderful for cooking/baking all kinds of deliciousness for me. Sure a grand gesture is great now and then, but it's the little on-going things that keep me feeling loved and happy.

I'm a very romantic person, but it's the small simple things people don't generally think about that mean the most to me.

I like romance, but if it's too over the top and cliche. I will not be able to take it seriously, and I'll end up laughing. x)

I agree completely! Something elaborate is ok every once in a while, but the little every day things mean a lot more to me because it proves he's listening to me and thinking about me all the time.

Both, but if I could only choose one it would be the simple, sweet things, like when he washes the dishes when it's not "his turn" to do it, or picks up a small treat for me when he goes grocery shopping. One of our favorite dates is to split a frozen pizza and a pint of ice cream and watch a movie. It's not terribly romantic from the outside, but it was something we did a lot in college when we only had access to the dorm kitchens, and now it's a sweet reminder of the beginning of our relationship. Plus, it's cheap
