I feel your pain! My guy is also horrible at being romantic. I mean..not at all. I hope he surprises you and pulls off something amazing!

I am sure it will be wonderful.

He will probably floor you with something from left field. Even if it isn’t super grand. 


Have a good weekend.

Mine is horrible at these things too. And I always think of all these things and he never does any of them. But I love him anyway, I am just an over thinker. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you ๐Ÿ™‚

Good luck this weekend! I can relate to this! My ex claimed to be uber romantic, and always complained that I’m not, but he never did anything romantic for me – no flowers or weekend trips or anything… So, I was always looking at those “books” at Chapters that contain sealed pages with romantic ideas, one for every week or every month. I always thought it was clever. My ex did not want to use those books, but I think my Fiance would not be opposed to do it in the future. It’s just an idea, but maybe your husband would like that?

Happy Anniversary!

Happy anniversary!

I have no words of wisdom to make him do more romantic things.   Perhaps a book like  @Imagelicious: suggested?

@bakerella: Yes, that’s why I thought that the book would be good because it already has pre-planned ideas, so your husband doesn’t really have to think about it, only personalize it and make it happen ๐Ÿ™‚ Although, I’ve never really seen the inside of that book since the pages are sealed, so it may not be too good.

Happy Anniversary! I’m sure he will plan something that you will love! My Fiance is the same way, he’s not the most romantic guy out there but when he puts thought into it he comes up with the most surprising romantic things! Have fun this week-end!

I hear you! I  know I will feel the same way once our 1 year comes up…if I don’t plan something, he won’t do anything extra special.. He thinks he is romantic by asking me where I want to go out to eat and then telling me to make the dinner reservation..

…but I hate to tell you that I don’t think it’s just in movies.. My sister has had numerous boyfriends who have done such romantic things..one guy took her on the beach and surprised her with a candlelit dinner! The only time I had that was on my honeymoon at a Sandals..and that was because I was insisting we do it lol…

… I have a guy friend who told his girlfriend to take off for 5 days in October and and will then tell her to pack her bags closer to the day because he is taking her on a cruise to Bermuda!

…Now I’m not saying I need my husband to take me on fancy vacations to prove his romance..but even a rose every now and then just for the heck of it would be oh so nice ๐Ÿ˜‰

First, happy anniversary!  Second, I totally get this.  My husband isn’t great at being romantic but because of this, it makes the smaller things that much better to me.  He worries that getting me flowers any other day will make a special day seem less special.  If you’re like me though, like others have said, if he puts effort into anything, even if it isn’t grand, it’ll be special.  I think the fact that he’s planning it himself is special.  I do over think everything too though.

To give you an idea of loving the little things, my husband was telling me last night that he has to go bowling as a team exercise at work.  I told him it sounded fun and he said “Eh, I’d rather be going bowling with you,” and my heart just melted.
