How to be Romantic

It might not sound like such a desirable thing to be called a "romantic man". But wait a minute. Doesn't whether it's a good thing or a bad thing depend on who it is that thinks you are a romantic man?

Your poker playing buddies calling you "romantic" might be cause enough to punch somebody in the nose. On the other hand, if the woman you are dating calls you "romantic", that is a very good thing. Just because you like pampering your lady doesn't mean that you are any less a man than any other man. You can spend your day finishing your basement, working on your car, just getting your hands dirty so to speak but at the end of that day there's nothing quite like the look of love and care on your significant others face when you cook an impromptu dinner for her. And the benefits of what happens after dinner, or even before you get dinner done, far outweigh any negative connotations being labeled a romantic have.

So what is it exactly that makes a woman see a man as romantic? Most of the time it's the little things that women notice. A glance, a quick touch or brush across her back. Sure, flowers are nice, but haven't they almost become a cliché. That's not to say women don't like flowers because they do, but if that's all you've got then it will only go so far. You have to mix it up, change your style and use your imagination to create romantic moments.

The key factor in creating romantic moments is to put the lady's likes ahead of your own.

Creating romantic moments is so easy it's a wonder every man in the world doesn't "get" this. All you have to do is think of an activity built around something she likes to do. Does she like shopping (not something men even like to think about much less do), fine dining, walks on a beach, watching movies and the list goes on. It's all about doing something she likes with her. What will make such activities seem even more romantic to her is if you choose to do something she likes to do with her when a ball game is on TV that you could be watching with your buddies. She will feel chosen. And that, my friend, is VERY romantic indeed.

It doesn't matter which activity to choose to participate in with the woman that you want to think of you as romantic. The trick is for you to be totally involved mentally in the activity and not staring off into space or obviously just wishing it were over so you could go do what you really want to do. Remember this is you trying to be romantic so concentrate on the project at hand.

Here is another little hint: The more that you dislike the activity that you choose, the more romantic it makes it for her that you chose to do it with her. The fact that it was your idea sends the romance factor through the roof.

It really is so very easy to create romantic moments. With only a little thinking and planning, romantic moments can happen every day and at the most unexpected moments. Being romantic is a win/win situation. There is no reason not to make romantic moments happen at every opportunity.
