– Make him lunch and bring it to him everyday

– We laugh and Joke… A LOT!

-We pull pranks on each other

Those are a couple I can think of off the top of my head. We keep our romance mainly by being silly together and flirting still. The under the toilet seat note sounds funny!!

I love the under the toilet seat idea, although Im more inclined to write “Make sure to put the seat down” rather than anything romantic. lol

I dont know, we need more romance in our lives.  I want to sign us up for salsa dancing.

I leave post it notes around the house with stuff like I love you or I adore you. We also have a code to use for when we’re…in need of extra special attention if you catch my drift. I also pack his lunch, sometimes I put in a note. We’re touchy feely people so we’re always touching…which leads to the code. Ummmm let’s see…we also play fight. Which is normally me jumping on him and dragging him to the ground. I then jump up and scream YAY in yo’ face. We’re very silly, weird people.

We have date night regularly, which sometimes includes dressing up and going somewhere fancy or might just be a movie nght at home. We randomly send texts throughout the day letting each other know we are thinking about the other. We also try to find new things to do together like sky diving or a salsa class. We also try to do little things for each other like he will do move my car for me (stupid NYC alternate side parking) or i will make his fav meal or wear something special for him after a long day at work.

This may sound strange and I now it’s not for everyone. However, sometimes I’ll start cooking dinner in nothing but an apron and a pair of heels. So that when he walks in there I am. (I guess that’s more sexy than romance, but it works for us)

I also have sent him little gifts at work. He’s sent me flowers and stuff, but sometimes I’ll send him cookies, or special surprise. I think it’s rare that men get that kind of stuff.

We also pack picnics.

We try to go on “adventures” just fun silly things we don’t do enough, like we go hiking, we visit some local waterfalls, we go on day trips and bike rides and we simply try to have fun together. We also send texts throughout the day pretty much every day saying how much we love each other appreciate each other, etc.

@Aubergold: you just can’t make anything with bacon :/

My body isn’t great, but i really like my legs. The apron covers my tummy, which is really the only part I don’t like. Remember he loves your body, it’s more about him than you. Plus him loving it so much boosts my confidence.

@mwitter80: I do that too just NEVER with bacon :P. Topless + Bacon = worst decision ever…

We leave eachother notes all the time that are so mushy most people would throw up :). I’m actually worried about this because with our wedding vows it will be like “Yeah I’ve heard this all before.” I know it will still be different but yeah…

We have date nights, we sleep naked that way even if there is no naughty time we are still being quite intimate. There is never a shortage of telling eachother we love the other.

We also do dorky things like text each other little things while the other is in the same room or if one of us leaves their phone at home the other will call and leave a voicemail letting them know. Stupid crap like that…

We have date nights and joke around a lot – but we also leave notes and little pictures constantly on the dry erase board on the fridge .. it is always such a pleasant surprise

@mwitter80: When we had our own place I would cook naked a lot. He liked that. 🙂 

But we spend time together snuggling during our favorite shows. 

We try to snuggle longer in bed together on our days off. 

We tell each other how much we love each other whenever we can

Send cute texts to each other
