@vanessa7:  You can plan out dates, too. Try to plan them around things/places he likes. Instead of flowers, you can buy him DVDs that he would like packaged with popcorn for a fun night in! Handwritten letters sent via the mail are also really romantic. My HS/college ex is a year older than me, and when he went off to university, I once sent him one loving card everyday for a week.

FI loves getting little notes from me in surprising places. For example, he has an extra graphing calculator in his office, and during a visit, I typed in “I love you! <3” then turned it off and put it away. When he found it, he told me he couldn’t stop smiling. 

Remember, romantic gestures don’t have to be huge to be meaningful 🙂

I wake him up for frisky time… I’m really not a romantic and I dislike most cliche romantic gestures.

My SO still cares about our half-year anniversary. I laughed when he said he’d be bummed if I were busy that day, I thought he was joking.

I leave him little notes in unsuspected places, like inside his glasses case.

I change his desktop background to cheesy paint drawings of the two of us.

I’ll surprise him with a new video game or movie he’s been talking about.

I make dinner for him when I can.

For an anniversary gift, I made him a year of dates.  12 envelopes with one new date for each month.

@vanessa7:  Definitely cook. He’s wrapped around my finger everytime I can cook something he rates an 8 out of 10 or higher. 

I like to take care of him after a long day, like I’ll get him whatever he wants, take his plate when he’s done eating, etc.

I know you said not physically, but I rub his muscles down daily, as he’s starting to work out and be active a lot these days.

He also loves when I put him to sleep by scratching my fingers through his scalp.

I also like to compliment him a lot, so I guess that’s romantic?

Oh, and we text each other daily, so for a few days straight I’ll be chatty Cathy with him, sending him cute messages like “morning :3,” then I stop texting him for a few days. It makes him appreciate the cute texts. I hope that doesn’t sound mean, he totally gets it and is ok with it.

I make him bacon roses, Let him watch his guy shows and try to talk about them with him, pick him up things I know he’ll like.

I make his lunches for work and put little notes in them sometimes or surprises.

when I’m out and about I like to pick up something I know he likes. A certain drink, snack, shirt, book, whatever it may be. As for him, he will cook dinner for me and play with my hair when I have a headache. Doesn’t sound romantic but he’s not a very touchy feely person so its a big gesture to me. 🙂

Rub his arms/neck… Make dinner, always complimenting, etc. Little things make a huge difference.

Okay, so this might sound kind of cheesy, but for our 1 year anniversary I made him a “365 Reasons I Love You” list and read it to him while at dinner. We also have a notebook we hide in our apartment and write notes back and forth to each other.

I usually just cook, that’s romantic right?  Yesterday I made him cream cheese filled croissants.  He asked for me to make him some on Friday night.  I pick him up surprises at the store sometmies.  Generally something silly like gummy bears or a donut haha.

I typically make him three meals a day and will set out a fresh towel for him when he showers. Aside from that, I make sure to hug him and kiss him daily and let him know I’m happy to see him. Sometimes I put little notes in his lunch to wish him good luck on a challenging day or just to say I appreciate him.
