    I have melted a few hearts with my skill in the kitchen. To make a meal for two I feel is very romantic.

    The surprise picnic with ready made food and a nice bottle of wine is an easy way to go for the romantic day also.

    I say be spontaneous, keep her guessing, and don't get into a rut is the way to go.

    Also, it's amazing what the occasional flowers for nothing special will do.

    ok, i find that listening to what she has to say and then using that later is a good thing.
    e.g. i once dated a girl who loved lighthouses, so i made a plan-i spent the night at her house, then had my brother call me at like 5a.m. saying his car broke down and he needed me to pick him up. i knew she would want me to ride that far by myself and would offer to ride with me. true to form she did. we drove around for almost an hour, i kept saying it should be around here somewhere. she was getting mad at my brother for not being where he said he would be, then i pull into a clearing from behind all these trees and she saw it, then realized it was her birthday and put 2and2 together. she asked how i knew she liked lighthouses and i told her she told me about it a couple months ago. she was amazed that someone would remember that. well when i went ot the truck and got the camera bag out and the basket for the picnic she started crying. that scarted me atfirst but then she ran up and hugged and kissed me, i knew i was ok. does something like that qualify corry?

    my girlfriend is always telling me not to spend money on her, but of course i do once in a while... she gets really excited when I just add a song or two to my mp3 player that she likes but never asked me to get. Whenever she says she likes a song, if we're out at buffalo wild wings or wherever, i just try and remember it and she thinks it's really sweet that i remember these things.

    small simple things really make the biggest impact in my opinion... but of course i'm no expert on girls since i'm only 20. On her birthday i just got her a single rose and a card that i wrote a little personal sappy note in for example... or we go to a local park a lot and just take a blanket and relax and talk and stuff.

    i suck at this stuff, but from my experience with her at least, simple, thoughtful stuff will win out or expensive crap most of the time. Can you ladies back that up at all or am i just stupid? haha

    When it's her birthday, always think of what you would like to get, then buy it. She won't want it, but will be glad that you thought of her, and will end up giving it to you, which will make her feel even better because she's made you happy as well.

    It's a win-win situation!

    You must be related to my ex. Imagine his surprise when I actually decided to ride the motorcycle that he "bought for me". :lol:

    Everything you do; flowers, candy, back-rubs, foot-rubs, all mean very little once you are married. The best thing you can go then is to tell her "I'll take the kids tonight, you go out with your friends".

    Sometimes she'll let you go out somewhere with her. But it is usually to buy something.
