Relationship Protocol: Love Notes

While staying with a girlfriend and her husband the other weekend, I kept finding Post-It notes with sweet messages all over their house. Since he travels quite a bit for work, he constantly leaves her surprises in her medicine cabinet, in her underwear drawer, stuck to the remote, or even on the coffee maker so that she knows how much he loves her even when he's not physically there. I can't stop thinking about how his little gestures make such a big impact — I mean wouldn't seeing little I love yous bring a smile to your face? Perhaps you already do something similar? So tell me, how do you tell each other you're thinking of them when away?

We always write notes for each other. It got so out of control with little notes all over the house that I found a really cute notebook and now we write letters in it at least a few times a week.

Aww! This is soo cute. I wish my boyfriend would do that. But we're always together. Maybe when he goes off to college. Hehe.

Currently, my husband is in Germany finishing up school. Ever so often as I sleep (he is 9 hours ahead), he would access my computer using VNC and open up Photoshop. In the morning, I would check my computer and be greeted by sweet drawings, photos, or video captures of him. Also, I would often get flowers sent to my office on random days and never on special occasions(he does something else). I'm always startled when one of our front desk people arrive to my room and set down a vase of flowers. As for what I do for him, he loves drawings, photos and videos of me as well and I'm happy to oblige. Hehe.

When my fiance and I first moved in 2gether, we worked opposite shifts, and we used to leave each other sweet notes all the time...sometimes dirty ones too!

Yes, we do this all the time. We were out the other night, and he reached in to get some money out to pay for dinner, and I saw a bunch of little notes that I had written him. He keeps them in his wallet. Totally adorable. I do the same thing. Its great to remember to be romantic, especially since laziness sets in when you've been with someone for a long time.

My fiance and I do this all the time. He'll randomly put notes in books or drawers, sometimes it will take me a week to find them. I work at night and he works during the day, so sometimes he'll stop by my work no his way home from work and leave cute little messages in my windshield. I come out and freak out cause I think I have a ticket then realize that it's a note from my fiance :)

:rotfl: pink! omg that is so funny! We do this occasionally. He'll leave notes on my computer or on my iphone. Once when I was gone for the weekend I left little post-it notes all over. One on his pillow telling him to have good dreams ;) lol and one in the shower saying something like: "You are naked now and I love it!" and I left one on his toothbrush that said something about how our toothbrushes were lonely but would be back together soon :) I left one in his underwear drawer about ... lol I love finding little notes from him ... makes my heart melt :) I am going to try the dry-erase on the mirror!

I always leave a love note on his computer the morning after I spend the night so that when he comes home from a long day at work there's a little sweet something (or nothing, lol) waiting for him. He used to leave me little notes in random places all the time, less so now, but every so often I'll find a "secret" or "confidential" notepad document saved on my desktop that simply says "i love you" when I open it :D

the funniest one i have was i left my fiance a sticky in his pant pocket i didnt know he had already put his wallet and money in the pockets well some how the sticky got stuck to his money, he went to have lunch with his mother, he offered to pay, his mother being stubborn paid so he put the money back in her purse, she calls him later that evening when we are in bed saying she has a gift for us, we go over the following day which is a sunday all his family get together at his parents house, she pulls out the sticky and starts laughing, mind you she is very religious never has said a curse word never has drank has worked as a secretary at the same church for 20 something years, anyway she reads what i wrote on the sticky, it reads I LOVE YOU BITCH (my pet name for him in bed) CANT WAIT FOR TONIGHT YOUR ASS IS MINE SINE YOU HAVE BEEN A BAD BOY, omg was i embarrassed

Before my sweetie and I lived together, we'd leave notes for one another in random places to find in the morning. Since we've been living together for a while now, when he travels for work, I'll put a few surprises in his luggage. When he has to be away for a week or so, I pick out funny or romantic "missing you" cards -- one for each night he's away. I'll usually write something specific about what I miss about him, or something about him that makes my heart melt. I seal and date them, so he can open one every night he's away. I look forward to his calls before he goes to sleep, even when he is overseas and the time difference is substantial. We catch up on each other's day and I like knowing he looks forward to the cards, too!

We aren't away from each other long enough to really do that. We live and work together. So there for we wake up together, drive to work together and see each other when ever we want to during the day and then we go home together. It works for us! And We wouldn't have it any other way!

Yeah my bf does that for me every now and then. Its really sweet and unexpected. He leaves little notes on my computer and my purse. I do it too. I leave lil notes in his pocket or in his wallet that say I love him and I will see him later and love him long time. hehe. I think it's sweet because it leaves us feeling good and we know that they care.

I don't think my boyfriend would ever do that, lol. But he does do other things to let me know he loves me. I will write notes on the mirror after taking a shower at his house so he sees it the next time he is in there and I always write him little notes or cards telling him how much I love him, since I find it a lot easier to reveal my feelings by writing them down than actually saying them out loud. Actually he does write me little notes every now and then.

aw, my boyfriend and I live across the country ans he's always hiding me little notes to find after he leaves town. We mail each other little nonsense all the time too. Sometimes just having something tangible really helps.
