Lovers in love, are you guilty of being unromantic?
When I was younger, I remember my Mom telling me that men
who love to eat sweet stuff are always more romantic that those who doesn’t.
The star sign experts also claim that there are some signs that are more romantic than the others.
Well, I don’t buy any of that.
To me, I believe that everyone can be romantic.
Being romantic doesn’t always revolves around getting expensive gifts,
or setting up surprise candlelight dinners.
It’s easy to show you love, and sometimes just a small gesture can let your loved one be the happiest person.
We are often caught up with our endless work commitments.
Sometimes when you’re together with someone for too long a period,
you might subconsciously take that person for granted too.
So here is a little nudge for everyone out there.
Read these little suggestions on how you can put a smile on your loved one’s face, and try them today!
We are all familiar with the usual Valentines’ Day, Christmas and Anniversary procedures.
But what about dropping a gift for your loved one even on an ordinary day?
It doesn’t have to be anything expensive -
a stalk of rose, a love letter, a box of his favourite chocolates,
I’m sure it will make your darling grin foolishly when he or she sees the gift.
Pardon me for being crude, but a shoulder rub could be way better than a blowjob sometimes.
We are all busy individuals. And work can be really be quite a bitch.
Offer to give him a shoulder rub after his bath or before he goes to bed.
That will also show him that his health and well-being matters a lot to you.
It’s a perfect way to show your love.
Some of the luckier ones will probably have a maid around the house.
But for most of us, we often have a lot of chores to do at home.
Lending a hand when he or she is flustered over the chores is a great way to show that you care.
Even if it’s something small like opening his mails and laying them neatly so that he can check them easily,
or just cleaning up his room together with him instead of lazing around on the bed while he’s at it.
It’s actually fun to do chores together sometimes.
Being pro-active in helping him out with his chores is a great way to help lighten his load.
Well, that means more time available for you also. Isn’t it great? :)
There was one time when Buttons and I were chatting online and he commented that he was hungry,
and I made him noodles (erm, not instant noodles excuse me!),
packed them and took a cab from Yishun to Bedok so that he can eat my special homecooked supper.
I could tell that he felt really happy eating that noodles!
He knows I’m a very lazy person, but whenever I offer to wake up at 6am with him to make him breakfast,
he will smile from ear-to-ear and thank me.
The point is, I think we’ll all feel very loved when our loved ones prepare food for us.
Start whipping some dishes today!
Unfortunately, not all of us are as talented when it comes to music.
But if that piece of music or that poem is for your loved one, who cares?
Because even if the words don’t rhyme and the melody sucks, they will still love it to bits!
Buttons & I used to go to the Jalan Kayu Roti Prata almost every week in the past,
and we’re always seated on Table 112.
So one time he just whipped out his guitar and wrote a song with “112″ as the theme.
(112 meaning Do Do Re)
I have that song on my iPod, and it never fails to melt my heart everytime it’s being played.
And I’m actually smiling as I’m typing this. Hee!
I remember Sinsin telling me once, that it is of utmost importance that we should make sure
we still look good even after we’re attached or married.
(Well, you would want to at least have some “market value” if you’re ditched.)
That aside, I think it’s a way of showing your love too – by taking care of your appearance and looks.
I’m sure your loved one will feel happier bringing you out to show his friends too.
Yes, some people will say that looks aren’t important, love rules.
But face it, I’m sure you don’t want your boyfriend to have 38″ waist just 2 years after marriage right?
Being responsible of your health, well-being and appearance is definitely a way of saying I Love You.
I don’t know about you, but I’m actually a very “physical” person.
Sometimes a touch or a hug can mean so much more than words.
Holding his hand when he needs support, hugging him when he is afraid;
I’m certain these little gestures will warm his heart.
I know that we’re all busy with our lives.
And even when two people are dating, there are times when they just cannot be there for each other.
Well, I think it’s really important that we should always try to be there when that someone needs us.
Even if it’s just for a hug.
Even when all he needs is for us to say something that he already knew.
Even when all he wanted is just a word of assurance that can be said through the telephone.
Being there, physically, really makes a very big difference.
This is one of my personal favourites.
I love giving and receiving personal notes.
Stuffing a little note filled with sweet nothings into his wallet,
or notes with word of encouragement in his socks if you know he hates going to work,
it didn’t take much effort on your side but it will surely make his day.
Well, you can always start by sending your loved one an email to tell him how much you’ve been missing him.
And sometimes, snail mail works like magic too! :)
What is a better way to say I Love You than saying “I Love You” itself?
It is important to communicate and even more important to let your feelings be known.
Your loved ones might cringe if you tell him you love him more than bee loves honey,
you all can laugh at how mushy and disgusting you two are,
but at the end of the day, I’m sure he will be all smittened.
Remind each other of how you two fell in love with each other.
And that special someone you love him, STILL! :p
Love needs effort, and the effort needs Love
