Probably when my SO took a day off work and drove up and surprised me. I had NO idea and he called me around 8am (he drove all night) and was like “so, I just pulled in to the parking lot, are you dressed?”

So sweet. He had flowers and he had bought me a stuffed dog that I still sleep with! (I wanted a dog so bad but couldn’t get one)

We spent an entire weekend together, snuggling going out to dinners and such.

@NorthernBelle10:  No special reason, he just really wanted to see me and we hadn’t seen each other in about 4 months.

We live together now, we did LDR for about 20 months out of our 30 month relationship haha. I was able to move back to be with him.

During our LDR we didn’t see each other that often – the most was once every other month and the longest was about 5 months without seeing each other.

My most romantic LDR experience was definitely my SO flying halfway around the world to come with me to my sister’s wedding. I pulled up at the airport to pick him up and after his 14 hour flight he had flowers for me. I was  really floored by that (he knows I love flowers but really? How did he even think about that after such a long journey?) and the weekend just got better. He charmed my family yet again, was courteous and thoughtful, and the day after the wedding when I was inevitably hungover, he walked my dog for me. That was definitely the most romantic time– from unexpected flowers to dealing with dog crap!

The most romantic thing I’ve ever done was 6 months after we met in Mexico, I flew to London for MY 19TH BIRTHDAY weekend but he had no idea… I arranged pick up and etc with his sister (using MYSPACE! lol!) and his mom picked me up on the train at the airport and it was all such a whirlwind cuz I had never been to Europe…

It was SO EXCITING!

His mom & I pulled up to the house and he and his best friend (who knew) were sitting out front and I ran up on him and said “SURPRISEEEEE!!!!” and he was like “WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?!” It was so fun!

We spent the next four days going out and celebrating and we booked a vacation to Greece for June for the week before my girlfriends had booked a trip traveling to Barcelona & Dublin and then ending in London of course…

Surprises are so romantic!!!

My Fiance and I lived about an hour and half apart.  For a year I had been hinting he should get a dog.  That way when he left to work on the road I could take care of the dog…and have two dogs (I already had one).  My dog would have a new friend…and I would only have to pay for expenses for one.  Win, win right?

Well one morning I got a picture text message from him.  It was like 7:30 so I was like “what the heck is he sending me”.  LOL – it was a picture of our black lab puppy in her little bed with a message “Love you baby”.  I called him back immediately and screamed “You got a puppy??” 

Best surprise ever – she’s an amazing dog.  Smart, sweet and a great buddy to my dog. We are quiet the little pack now.

@NorthernBelle10:  I do love our girl…though it had been a long time since I had a puppy and was a bit rusty with house training and chewing.  But overall he did a great job picking her out.  I think we are in trouble when we have kids – naming her took 3 days!!  Godo think we’ll have 9 months to talk it over.

Darling Husband and I dated for two years, broke up for four and a half, and started dating again while I was living all the way in Japan.  We didn’t even get to hug each other until several months into our relationship, so Skype was everything to us.

For my birthday that year, about a month after we had decided we wanted to try a relationship again, he sent me a present.  In addition to several other small gifts, got a Build-A-Bear teddy bear he had made, and a letter came with it:

My Darling GreenEyedMoon,

Happy birthday and merry Christmas! I’m sorry your birthday present is so late, but at least this way your Christmas present(s) are early, so I’m going to use that to justify it. =) Plus I think I did a pretty good job on your present, so hopefully you’ll let me off the hook.

In any case, this present requires some explanation. See, this is no ordinary teddy bear. It is a magical lovey bear! His power is to bend the space-time so that whenever you hold him, you are really holding me, and when you cuddle with him, you are cuddling with me. No matter where you go, as long as he is with you, I am too. All you have to do to activate his power is think of me, and I will be there, albeit in fuzzy teddy bear form.

I miss you so much, my wonderful, beautiful girl. I can’t stop thinking about finally being able to hold you in my arms, take in your scent, and taste your kiss. I will be there with you in a few short months, and it will be absolutely perfect. For now, though, give your bear a big hug so I can be with you, even if only for a moment.

Soon we will be together again. I will be your Mr. Moon, you will be my GreenEyedMoon, and all will be right in the world. Until then, you will not leave my thoughts for a moment. You are all I want. You are all I can think of. You are my lovely.

Yours always,
Mr. Moon

P.S. Yes, I was just trying to see how many Texas-themed things I could fit into one box.

P.P.S. We just said it today, so I am adding it here: I LOVE YOU!


 

I cried and cried and cried, and I slept with that bear every single night until I went back to the US eight months later.  It’s gone with me on all my business trips since, too.

When my Boyfriend moved away in July, we were packing his things and i found a teddy bear he had in his closet. I asked him about it and he said he was called hubert and he’s just a bear he’s had for ages. Then he asked me if i wanted to keep it so i had something to keep me company. Hubert is the best bear ever. Every night he sleeps in my SO’s place on my bed and SO tells me to hug him when he’s missing me.

For me it was when I came to visit my SO for my birthday two years ago. After he took my bags for me at the airport, we went out to his car. He opened the door, for me and laying on the passenger seat were my favourite flowers, white calla lillies. No guy I’d ever dated before had gotten me flowers. And I found out that he had snuck behind my back, and found out what my favourite flowers were from my best friend, so he could surprise me. He knew I’d always wanted flowers and he said that he wanted to give me an amazing start to spending my birthday with him that year.

He’s not very spontaneous, but every once in a while I’ll get call from the front desk of my building saying I have a delivery. It’s never been the same thing, but at the top of the list are edible arrangements, a care package with all my favorite candy when I was sick, flowers, Tiffs Treats (a company in Austin that delivers freshly baked and still warm cookies). 

To me it’s just romantic to know that he’s being spontaneous/romantic for me when it’s not in his generaly personality to do that kind of stuff.
