What was the most romantic thing that your significant other (or someone) has done for you?
Once when we were still dating, my hubby brushed all the snow off my car before he left for work…on a Saturday morning. I wasn’t going anywhere and he was on a schedule, but he still took the time to do it. That was the exact moment when I realized I loved him.
I can’t think of a most romantic thing that someone has done for me.
For me, romance isn’t in the big sweeping gestures. It’s the constant little things like flowers out of the blue, or when my husband makes me a special cocktail or coffee. The little things do it for me, because I know he was thinking about me
My husband planned a sunset at the beach wedding proposal. Imagine the sun slipping into the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. Beneath a magenta sky, the diamond solitaire sparking and winking, warming your heart with its rosy glow. Except – it was a weekday. I had a headache, and a 90-minute drive to the beach was unappealing. I have never lived down foiling this most romantic of moments.
In my twenties, I dated a man who for twelve weeks sent a single flower to my job. During the day a student aid would bring it to my classroom. The students loved it and of course it created quite a gossip channel. The girl’s swooned thinking how romantic that someone sent me a flower every week. It was fun and I enjoyed receiving the roses. I still have those cards twenty years later and they bring a smile to my face even though the relationship is long gone into the land of memories.
My husband knew New Orleans topped my bucket list and arranged to have me come along on a business trip. After he’d finished work, he let me pick what we were going to do. He’s the alpha-est of alpha males, but I dragged us through everything from a guide book I’d read on the flights. Haunted tours. Beignets. A trip to where they make Mardi Gras floats. And, then, we watched cheesy movies set in New Orleans at night. It’s not always the actions or the items but the fact that he knew what would make me happy.
