Dear romantic seeking man,
You TIRED of your woman telling you, “Why can’t you be more romantic?”
Have you searched “how to be romantic” on Google hoping to find [“romantic date ideas”]?
You might find in your search that there aren’t many articles about romantic date ideas written by GUYS.
Why is that important?
Because guys know how “guys” think. (Wait ‘til you read romantic date idea #18!)
A guy can provide insight and personal experience of what worked and didn’t work for his woman.
Listen, if you’re in an unhappy marriage or feel like something’s missing in your relationship, it might be because the ROMANCE is gone.
There’s no PASSION between you two.
No spark…no butterflies…no cloud 9 feeling.
Being in a committed relationship takes effort and understanding.
More so on the part of the guy.
You (“NEED”) to know what she likes, what irritates her and what makes her happy.
Pay attention to details about her.
For example, do you know the name of her favorite perfume?
Treat her better than your handgun or your most treasured sports memorabilia.
I’ll make this easy for you, if you remember only (3) things from this article, remember this:
She wants YOU to love her. She wants YOU to appreciate her. She want to know YOU find her the SEXYiest little kitten alive.
If you’re still with me and want to know the 18 romantic date ideas that’ll turn you into her personal CASANOVA, keep reading.

ROMANTIC IDEA #1:
16GB of memory on your phone…500GB on your computer…plenty of space for videos and pics of you and her
There is nothing more nostalgic than…flipping through pics and vids of the good ol’ times.
Phones today have [more] storage than all the past storage methods combined.
…and with social media at the center of culture, why not chronicle your LIFE with the woman you LOVE?
Take all kinds of pics of vids…silly, crazy, INTERESTING, when she’s not looking (oooo…I’ve gotten some good pics and vids of her when she wasn’t looking).
Take them so you and her can look back on them and [reminisce] of the good times you’ve had.
She’ll love it if you print some ouT and put them in a creative album for your next anniversary or her birthday.
BRO…you will be the TALK of the town with her friends and family.
ROMANTIC IDEA #2:
Flowers are CLICHÉ and roses from the grocery store suck. Take her some anyways
I’m not a BIG fan of roses because they cost a pretty penny and they last a week…at most.
If you have good “JuJu” in the home, roses might last two weeks, [TOPS].
Still, your WOMAN loves roses, the-dozen-long-stem-Ecuadorian-ones-in-a-glass-vase.
Roses that scream PASSION and LOVE as soon as you walk into the flower shop.
[“NOT”] the ones you buy at Ralphs or Vons (a grocery store) at the l-a-s-t…minute.
Don’t skimp on the card either; she wants that to… she wants you to WRITE something in it.
Tell her how much you love her; how thankful you are to have her in your life.
She’ll like that.
ROMANTIC IDEA #3:
GO OUTSIDE! Sit under the BIG BRIGHT moon and name a star after her
Put this is at the TOP of your “cute date ideas” list.
Because it’s a romantic gesture that you can do [ANYWHERE] in the world.
Billions of galaxies, trillions of stars and only one universe.
Name one of those stars after her.
You can use a Star Map to help you find a star both of you will remember.
You can also pay a company to a name a star in your woman’s name.
You can CREATE it.
Take your woman’s hand…bring her close to you.
Look up at the BIG dark sky…lift your finger, pick a STAR and tell her, “I name that star, insert [your woman’s name] after you.”
Take a picture of the star, put her name on it in a nice font and [print] it out for her.
You’ll etch your name in the H-A-L-L-S of her heart and soul for eternity.
ROMANTIC IDEA #4:
I hear naked butlers are popular with women.
Why not be her Naked Server for the night
So you got a party pack, beer belly and [love] handles; that woman standing beside you LOVES every inch of you.
Even if you DON’T love the way you look.
Look at this way…
…you love every inch of her;
…you tell her she’s beautiful, sexy and HOT;
If not, [start] telling her she is because she NEEDS that from you.
If you want what almost every man wants (*coughs*), you need to prime her, wine her and serve her in the buff.
Before you say, “Your OUT of your MIND!!”
Think about it?
How would you feel if she dressed up as…
a french maid with her hair and makeup the WAY YOU like it and only in an apron?
You would LOVE it! Right?
Be her naked butler (or server) for the day or night.
She’ll get a laugh out of it and say, “What the H-E-double hockey sticks are you doing?!”
Who cares. Do it anyways. Let her sit back and enjoy the romantic gesture.
A WORD OF CAUTION: you may turn her on because she’ll feel empowered and in control.
You’re stimulating her in a way she never thought possible.
She’s thinking in her head…
“my MAN is catering to me, doing everything I ask of him AND he’s naked.”
ROMANTIC IDEA #5:
2 slices of bread, Boar’s Head Turkey, Tillamook cheddar cheese and cute quotes about love
You hate shopping (“clothing” or “grocery”). I do too.
…but you need to eat, SHE needs to eat.
She gets tired of eating fast food so change it up and make her lunch one of these days.
You SHOULD know what she likes to eat. If not, make mental (or text yourself) notes the next time you eat of what she does and doesn’t like.
When you know what she likes, take your butt over to the grocery store and buy some QUALITY food for her.
Go home…prepare it for her.
NEATLY put the food in a lunch bag or brown paper bag for her.
Take your time and organize it as if you were a 5-star [chef] serving a dish to a food critic.
Find CUTE quotes about love, write them on a post-it note…put them in the bag.
You’ll put a smile on her face from your romantic gesture.
ROMANTIC IDEA #6:
STOP and APPRECIATE her, that’s all she wants from you
This might be the easiest “how to be romantic” thing you can do to for her.
You’re a busy guy, she gets it.
But would it hurt for you to ACKNOWLEDGE all that she does for you?
She knows you better than you know yourself…what beer you like, the type of clothes you wear (and buys them for you), your sports team, etc.
Do the same in return for her.
Hug her, kiss her and that’s it. STOP right there.
Walk away if you start getting horny because remember, it isn’t about you – it’s about you APPRECIATING her.
Do this several times a week or even once a day.
Make her feel wanted, loved and appreciated from the ONLY man she cares to receive that from…YOU.
ROMANTIC IDEA #7:
Lace up your shoes, grab YOUR woman’s hand and tell her, “the sun is setting, let’s go see it”
Unglue your eyes from the cell phone screen and look out into the blue sky.
Is the sun about to set?
Take her out for a walk.
Better yet, set up a couple of lawn cheers on the yard or in the balcony and watch the sun set.
Pack a picnic basket with some wine (or beer), cheese, crackers or of the snacks she likes.
It’s not the picnic basket she likes, it’s the THOUGHT you’re putting into being creative and romantic with her.
Stand (or sit) there with her and watch the sun set. Don’t say a word.
Bring her close to you, kiss the top of her head and FEEL her heartbeat against your chest.
Take a selfie of you two with the sun set as your background.
Might lead to some “BOOM BOOM” time.
ROMANTIC IDEA 8:
Las Vegas right before the HELL of summer hits is a pretty good time of year to visit
Las Vegas is nice place to visit over the weekend…right before summer hits.
I play a video casino app called Pop Slots.
It rewards players with coins that you can trade in for *free* hotel stays, shows, buffets and money to use in Vegas.
Las Vegas is a four-hour “romantic getaways near me” drive.
What’s a few hours away from you that might make a nice romantic getaway?
Search Google Maps, Yelp or Google for “romantic places near me”.
There’s no excuse. Everything is at your fingertips.
Pick a place and make all the arrangements for you and your little lady.
With the reservations made, tell her to CLEAR her calendar for the weekend: YOU’RE going out of town.
She’ll love that you took the time to plan a mini-vacation (there’s a theme here that should start becoming clear to you).
You’re taking time out of YOUR day to think of things to do that she enjoys.
She’s not lifting a finger – YOU ARE.
ROMANTIC IDEA #9:
Let the Wine tender pour you a glass of Port. And DO eat the crackers they have in bowls before you taste
You’re a fan of beer, you’re leading lady isn’t.
She’s more of a wine woman.
Take her to a WINERY and do some wine tasting.
You may be in a state that doesn’t have wineries (I’m in Southern California and wineries are 2-4 hours north and south of me).
Still, there’s a MEADERY (honey wine), brewery or winery near you.
If not, find the next best thing, a bar or lounge you think she might like.
If she’s not into that [“scene”], pick up a bottle of wine you know she’ll enjoy and drive to the park for a picnic.
Call up the grandparents ask them to babysit the kids because you need a night alone.
Make her a candle light dinner. Remember the “NAKED SERVER” idea, might be an perfect time for that romantic gesture.
ROMANTIC IDEA #10:
Record that sexy voice of yours and set it as her
wake up call: [WITHOUT HER KNOWING]
If you’re body is a work of art, your voice is one of the colors.
Got poetic on yah; my bad.
Record your voice on your phone with a FREE recording app.
Upload your voice file into Google drive, Dropbox or another cloud storage.
[ASK] to borrow her phone so you can check that her security or latest software is up to date.
With her phone in your hand, log into Google Drive (your cloud storage), search for the file you recorded.
Download it onto her phone.
On her phone, go to the settings –> sound section and save your voice audio file as her alarm RINGTONE.
The next morning, when her alarm goes off, you’ll BLOW her away with the voice she hears.
Say something like, “We’ll hello there beautiful, it’s time to rise and shine”.
You might even try singing something (if you got the cojones) or singing chops for it.
ROM-CONS… ROMANCE…the HALLMARK channel –
ESPN move aside
There sappy, mushy, full of EMOTIONS, and you could care less to see them.
You gotta learn to love romantic comedies and the Hallmark channel YOUR –>woman<– does.
Add HER favorite channels into your TV’s remote control.
The next time you’re watching your football game and she’s sitting next to you, SWITCH over to one of her favorite channels.
Show her it’s not all about ESPN and FOX Sports.
Sit there with her. FORCE yourself to watch one of her movies or shows.
She’ll fall out of her seat with that romantic gesture.
ROMANTIC IDEA #12:
A juicy cooked Filet Mignon steak, sour cream and chives baked potato, a crisp Caesar salad and a bottle of red wine
Going to dinner is clichê.
Take her out anyways.
This is the foundation of any ROMANTIC date ideas (or cute date ideas) list.
Don’t take her to Denny’s or Outback Steakhouse, take her somewhere you’ve never gone.
Try an upscale Brazilian steakhouse where plates are $50+ per person.
You and her can chow down in a Samba-infused dining area as servers bring you meat of ALL KINDS.
It’s ALL YOU CAN EAT for a couple hours. Well worth it!
It’s QUALITY meat, and DELICIOUS. No Golden Corral or Hometown Buffet food here.
Samba dancers (think Carnaval parade in Brazil) come around every hour or so to put a show on for everyone eating.
You’ll SPEND a couple hundo but you’re going to spend that in gifts.
ROMANTIC IDEA# 13:
The bar napkin under your Bud Light bottle sure does add flare to a cute love note
The next time you’re in the bar drinking some cold ones, write a cute love note on the napkin underneath your beer.
What DO YOU say?
How about, “I’m thinking about you right now, and wish you were here with me. Love you.”
No NEED to confess your undying love to her.
Or, how your life will never be the same without her in it (although you might after a few rounds).
Why write it on a bar napkin?
Because it lets her know, even with you out HANGING with the boys, you’re thinking about her.
Plus, when’s the last time you wrote any love quotes for her?
I’m guessing NEVER.
ROMANTIC IDEA #14:
Those white 13 gallon (.30 mil) trash bags won’t find the kitchen trash can themselves
If you’re like me, you can’t stand washing clothes or dishes: YOU HATE IT.
But wash the clothes and do the dishes anyways because you want her to come home and RELAX.
Take the trash out.
PICK UP her clothes off the floor.
Actually, pick up YOUR clothes off the bathroom floor.
Take the clothes out of the hamper and PUT them into (separate piles).
Make her coffee and serve it to her.
Vacuum the living room, pick up your DISHES and put them in the sink.
DO something around the house that helps her out.
Show her you’re not getting comfortable in the relationship.
ROMANTIC IDEA #15:
When’s the last time you did what she wants to do?
You like going to the bar to watch college football on Saturday and NFL football on Sunday.
Have you ever thought your WOMAN may want to do something on the days you head to the bar?
I bet she’s FED UP with you taking up all day Saturday and Sunday to watch your football games.
But you say, “She knew how I was when we first got together. Football’s my life!”
BAD move to think, even WORSE to say that to your woman.
She’s your LIFE now.
She may be ok with you doing what you want for a while.
But bet your A$$, there will be a time when she unleashes a fury of pent up emotions about how YOU make her feel.
You’ll think it’s because of you watching football every weekend – it’s not.
It’s about you not asking her or better yet, not doing anything SHE WANTS to do.
You’re making it ALL about you.
Encourage her to go out with her friends to a bar, a lounge, a dance club, picnic, etc.
You don’t want her to FEEL like a hostage in your relationship, unable to speak her mind about what she wants.
She’s going to get tired: GUARANTEED!
ROMANTIC IDEA #16:
You got two left feet and your hips don’t lie.
She sure would LOVE to see you try
When YOU decide to listen to your woman and do what she wants, she may want YOU to take her out dancing.
YUP – dancing.
You don’t like dancing, ok.
But if your woman likes to cut up the rug and she hasn’t gone in a while, take her.
You don’t know how to dance? Who cares.
After a couple Long Island Ice Tea’s, you’ll feel like the next Dancing With the Stars pro out there.
You’re two left feet, stiff hips and bobbing chicken head will loosen up.
You’ll ENJOY her smile, her kisses and the love she’s showering you.
All because you’re doing something SHE enjoys.
ROMANTIC IDEA #17:
Your cell phone battery is dead: PERFECT!
Put your arms around her
Life (at the time of this writing) is consumed with electronics, more important, cell phones.
Your cell is your ELECTRONIC leash to social media.
It keeps you connected to notifications about everything you like.
It may be your best friend.
Don’t forget that pretty woman you sleep next to you, spending every waking minute with is your BEST FRIEND.
Put away your phone (for a few hours) when you get home from work.
Reconnect with your woman.
Ask her how her day went [that will open her up] to UNLOADING her entire day on.
She needs ATTENTION.
Give it to her.
ROMANTIC IDEA #18:
It’s more than “sticking” it in bro…you have to ROMANCE her
This topic is last (PURPOSELY) because if there’s one thing EVERY man thinks about more than anything else, it’s SEX.
The term (“SEX”) is a catch all for all for intercourse…romance…intimacy.
It’s not about STICKING IT IN as most men believe it to be.
If you want what nearly every man wants, you gotta…put in the work.
This is my favorite of the at romantic date ideas.
It will get you ALL the intercourse you could ever want.
Let’s do it! (Not you and I do it; but let’s do this…nevermind)
Set the mood
Grab a bottle of lotion (or lavender oil).
Set it on the floor next to your bed.
Grab your cell phone, put it on the floor next to your bed.
Open YouTube or Pandora and search “Maxwell”.
Find a playlist of his…hit the play button.
Grab her hand; lead her to your BED.
Turn her face away from you (her back to you).
Get her naked
Begin to massage her back and shoulders.
Caress her. Kiss her neck.
Take her clothes OFF [keep caressing and kissing her].
With her clothes on the floor and her standing there naked, cover her ENTIRE body in your kisses.
Kiss her neck (nibble it a bit), R-U-N your tongue up and down her spine (blow on her moist skin where your tongue was at).
Kiss her waist, her belly button, her knees, her calves…the top of her feet and her toes.
Massage her into a cloud
You’ll know she’s ENJOYING what you’re doing to her by the mountain of goosebumps popping up on her arms and thighs.
Lay her face down on your bed like you would a newborn baby.
KEEP kissing her body.
Grab the lotion, pour the size of a quarter in your hands, rub them together and apply your hands to her back.
COVER every inch of her body in lotion.
Run your hands through her hair, massage her head.
Run your fingertips on the top of her skin (gentle now).
As you caress, massage and touch her, she’ll feel EUPHORIC and RELAXED.
Good, this is how you want her.
As she’s laying there, completely surrendered to your touch, go to the bathroom.
Make her a bath
Turn the water on in the bathtub, MORE hot than warm.
Light a candle…turn the lights off…make it dim.
NOTE: Keep an eye out on the water so it doesn’t overflow.
Once the bathtub is FULL, walk to your woman.
Put your hand on her back (make sure they’re not cold).
Whisper in her ear, “Babe….”
She KNOWS what you want because, one…she felt you leave; and two…she heard the water running.
She’ll be happy to respond to your silent request AND get up.
WHEN she does, walk her to the bathroom.
Help her into the bath. DON’T leave her there.
Pamper her to no end
OFFER her a glass of or her favorite drink.
Get it for her.
Pour some of it into her MOUTH as she lays in the hot bath.
Grab a cup (enough to hold a couple ounces of water).
Dip it into the hot bath water and starting from her hairline, pour the water on her head.
NOTE: Make sure the water flows away from her face.
Repeat pouring water on her head until the tub water cools.
DO this for her – you will UNDOUBTEDLY get whatever YOU want from her.
Because (shaking my head right now), this is beyond anything she could ever imagine.
It’s the ultimate ROMANTIC gesture you’ll ever give her.
