What is the most Romantic thing your S.O. ever did? or a few to win your heart?
Mine is that in the beginning when we had only been going out for about 2 months at the time and lived long distance. We had a big fight before I had work (like a (dealbreaker-in-the-beginning-I-don’t-think-this-will-workout-can’t-believe-you-just-said-that-kind-of-fight). I was giving him the silent treatment and not responding to his texts. He was supposed to come down and visit me after I got off work but, I was still so pissed when I got off that I ignored him while I walked to my car when he stopped in my way and hugged me. I was just so pissed that I halfheartedly hugged him and just wanted to go home. As I happened to release from the hug I noticed he had a big bouquet of pink roses sitting on my car trunk in a glass vase. I think the card said “My Love, I hope we can get past this, I’m sorry.” (love, …)
When I saw that I just started crying, I mean, what a B*** I was and here this man swept me off my feet and was such a sweetheart about it. He made me melt.
Ladies, have your so’s done anything like that? What romantic gestures won your heart or swept you off your feet?

He’s 5 years older than me so obviously I didn’t ask him to be my prom date, I went with my friend instead. Afterwards he stopped by and said we should go for a ride. He took me to a hotel room (that’s where we used to have our “encounters” when we first started dating lol) and on the bed was a bouquet of flowers. It was so unexpected and I really did feel like a prom queen.

Okay, I just searched for this thread, because this JUST happened like 5 minutes ago.
FI and I are long distance a couple of days a week because of our PhD programs. It’s only for part of the week, so it’s not the end of the world, but some days are harder than others. Today I had to take care of a bunch of things that normally would be his domain (cats having digestive issues, installing a window A/C, doing fifty frickin’ million dishes) and he had to do some things that normally would be my domain (fixing our horrible router, payroll/tax stuff, shopping for groceries). We just didn’t have each other to lean on at all, and I called him crying and SO upset and frustrated with our living situation right now.
He talked to me for like an hour, calmed me down, had me laughing, all of that good stuff. After we got off the phone, I sent him a text thanking him for being such a good sport and telling him that I would keep trying to be flexible and patient with our temporary living situation.
He texted me back: “I’ll work on making things better for us too. I will always love you. Things are going to be just fine.”
I don’t know if I’ve ever been so heartbreakingly in love.

We are probably the two most unromantic people to ever exist. :/

my boyfriend played sports all throughout his childhood and into adulthood even. whenever i could, i would go watch him play hockey our senior year of high school. he kept the hockey puck they played with in his final hockey game our senior year. he wrote the date of the day we “became official” on it and have it to me to keep. at 17 years old, i thought it was precious <3

When we were in high school, my parents divorced. It was ugly. My dad moved a few hours away. On prom night FI (then boyfriend of course) made all the plans for dinner to surprise me and I thought “how sweet, how romantic,” etc. Well, we showed up for dinner and my dad was there. He was sweet enough to share prom dinner with my dad, just so my dad could see his little girl dressed up for prom. It was so sweet! I still get teary-eyed talking about it 🙂
This is infinitely smaller but the most recent. After seriously MONTHS of refusing to let me put a burlap bow on the wedding cake, last night he was putting fake tanner on my back (which, PS, bonus points there) and he said, “I’ve been thinking, and I’m pretty sure that the burlap bow on the cake is more important to you than it is to me, and I want you to be happy so let’s go ahead and do it.” I was like AHHH OMG REALLY and he was like “yes really! It was a stupid thing to put my foot down about because I don’t care nearly as much as you do!”
:3 BURLAP CAKEEEE

Sent me this bear, to work, unannounced, when we’d been dating just three weeks. Apparently he set it up after two weeks! (hardly any surprise we were engaged before our first anniversary? lol)
The package had “Teddy Bear company” on it so that kind of ruined the surprise a tad… but I wasn’t expecting the writing on his jumper! I literally burst into tears at my desk and didn’t know where to look! lol (because of course everyone had crowded around to see what the package was :P)

He used to write beautiful poems about special moments we shared, and give them to me. He’s an unusually good poet (like, publishable, talented, educated poet) so I genuinely enjoyed the poems.
He also writes really nice things in my birthday cards every year. This year, it was something like “I’m looking forward to another wonderful year together. . . hopefully it will include some fun surprises!” And I think the “surprises” was supposed to mean us getting engaged. Hasn’t happened yet, but he’s got until April by his own hint. 🙂
There are a lot of little things he says or does that are super romantic, but I can’t think of any specific ones right now.

Thanks..I removed it tho because I mis read the topic of the thread and decided it didn’t fall under “romantic” category…I mean, it was a tad but it was more heart rendering, ya know? I still can’t tell the story without crying out of sheer love for the man at his gesture!

When we first started dating we usually only saw eachother on the weekends, because we lived about 2 hours from eachother. So he would leave me surprise love notes around my apartment to find during the week. He still does it sometimes (6 years later) and will put a note in my lunch bag to find at work 🙂
It’s not a grand romantic gesture or anything, but I love it <3

He and I have a thing of sending songs back and forth to each other. We’ll include a blurb about what we thought of the music, and then look forward to hearing what the other thought of it. Probably thousands of songs exchanged by email over the years; it’s a big connection point for us.
Anyway, I had sent one that I just loved. I raved about it, and had this emotional reaction to it that was pretty powerful. Totally enchanted with this song.
A few days later, he sent me a recording of him playing and singing the song. It wasn’t even for anything special, just a random sweet gesture for me.
I am NOT used to being out-romanced, but he sure got me there.
