Being romantic is something women are always wishing men would do. They want flowers, love, candlelit dinners, attention: and maybe another small token of their appreciation.
However, women often miss out on the romantic boat and do not show their love for the men in their life as much as they expect the men too! So let’s help women out and give them some ways to pump up the romance for their men. Men, what are some romantic things you wish women did more?
One Redditor said, “Man is it really that easy?? I love doing that, forehead kisses and telling them how handsome they are and asking if they want something to eat, lol.”
Another Redditor replied, “If she were to stop in the middle of what she was doing and come over to cuddle and tell me a joke or a compliment., my happiness meter would explode. And my day would be one to remember.”
A comment read, “Hug for longer. Every time a guy gets hugged, he pretends it didn’t affect him, and then he goes to sleep all warm and fuzzy.”
A most liked comment was, “This is exactly what happened to cause my now boyfriend to make a move on me. I had a crush on him for 5 years, as we were just acquaintances through the local music scene. At the end of the show, I was a little buzzed and gave him a long hug goodbye. Turns out the crush was mutual. That night he messaged me on Facebook, and the rest is history.”
One user added, “So I got given flowers for Valentine’s, and I cannot express the joy I felt receiving them, hahaha.”
A second user wrote, “My wife got me the Lego Space Shuttle for Valentine’s. I was ready to divorce her right there just to propose again.”
A comment read, “For me, it’s physical contact. My late wife was huge on physical contact. We were always holding hands, hand on a thigh when sitting. She would hook her arm around mine and press her body against mine when we’d be standing in line, get random hugs for no reason, etc. Sometimes in bed, she’d reach over and just squeeze my arm and say, “I love you” when we’d be going to sleep.”
Physical Contact Continued…
Another comment was, “Everyone has their own love language. For me, it’s physical touch. A handsy girl can make me melt, and I don’t mean sexual touching, like hand holding, walking arm in arm, cuddling, running her fingers through my hair, touching my face, etc., things like that.”
Make Us Feel Wanted
One Redditor shared, “I feel that even with the most gender-equal person, there is an expectation of men being initiators. At least for me, a woman just initiating anything romantic (sexual or nonsexual) is a huge turn-on. People want to feel wanted.”
A user got straight to the point and said, “Stop dropping hints and tell us outright if you want to be with us.”
Feeling Wanted Continued…
This Redditor said, “Take the initiative. Men spend their time chasing. It would be nice to be chased.”
One user had this to share, “Initiate the conversation. Pretty obvious when someone is attracted to you. Why does it have to be the man to start s**t? I’m tired of the chase. To be fair, I just want a butterfly to fly right into the net.”
A user said, “Plan dates without my input. I’m 40 and can count on one hand the number of times that has happened in my life.”
Another user had this to share, “Surprise me with random acts of kindness.”
A third user also said, “Small spontaneous stuff like little notes, random gifts even if it’s my fav chocolate bar, drink, etc.”
Another Redditor shared, “When you ask how my day was and I tell you I had a bad day. Please don’t tell me you had a worse day. That doesn’t help me with my bad day. Now I’m trying to cheer us both up.”
A user said, “Just help out by going through the rote activities of managing a relationship: initiate conversations, help plan dates, give compliments, and help make their partner feel special.”
A popular comment was, “My late wife LOVED doing playful things to aggravate me but in a silly, playful way. Her favorite, and the one I always fell for, was she’d want a little kiss, and the moment my lips touched hers, she’d stick her tongue out so it went between my lips. It used to irritate the s*** out of me, but she was being playful. I really miss that stuff now. If I was to date again, I’d want someone that does playful stuff like this.”
A second comment read, “I don’t know s*** about love languages, but playfulness is my favorite trait in any person, not just in romance. The few times my past loves made games out of nowhere or took innocent joy in simple things still stand out in my memory.”
A Redditor wrote, “Small gestures. Pour me a whiskey after a long day. Run me a bath. Buy me some beer. Offer to drive. I’ll make you tea. Bring a blanket. Run you a bath. Buy your flowers etc. Just reciprocate, really.”
One enthusiastic user said, “Show up naked, bring beer.”
One user replied, “When you’re cuddling, she pulls your arm on her, that s*** heals you.”
There you have it. Men are often not very complicated, and a simple cuddle session or “I love you” can go a long way.
