Romantic Gestures

With Valentine's Day lurking right around the corner, romance has been on everyone's mind. But it shouldn't take this holiday that comes once a year to remind us that a thoughtful gesture can mean the world to someone else. Society tends to assume that it's the man's responsibility, but I know many ladies who've taken the romance into their own hands with breathtaking gestures of love (or lust). So, let's set the record straight, what romantic moves have you played on your sweetheart?

Yeah, he was pretty happy! I told him I would find a way for us to spend Vdayy together, hehehe. And you know what... I dont even like chocolate! So I wasnt missing out! I would make the testers and eat the dough but no cookies, then take the rest to the biology office on campus to let then finish them off (I go there for my masters in micro)! They were pretty happy wih me, the chair even emailed me to rave about them! So even though I am in pain, eating soft foods and high as a kite from vicodin... my Vday was pretty good!

Well, I am single BUT I do have a kind of funny story for you ladies! My best friend is going to babysit me for 24 hous b/c I am getting my wisdom teeth out on VDAY (I know... sucky). Well, he looooves chocolate chip cookies so I have made two test batches to get the perfect chewey cookie for him. I also made some paella (freaking delicious, fyi) for him for dinner. So he is spending VDAY with me, and I made him some paella and cookies. Even though I cant eat them tomorrow, I know he will love them.

sometimes Ill wake up in the morning and make breakfast in just my undies, ive made him breakfast in bed on a few occasions. But the one Im most proud of (and the one that he liked the most) was his christmas present this year. I had bought him ( was for me to wear) some sexy lingerie. At first I had just wrapped it in a box and was going to let him open it after we got done with all our family stuff. But then, my mom had bought me this beautiful long black (fake) fur coat for Xmas, and on the way home he said something like "That coat is so sexy, I want to see you in just that and a pair of heels" So when we got home I just pretended like I wasnt really paying attention to what he siad and we sat down and started watching a movie. A while later I went and put on my sexy nightie with my coat over it (and heels of course) when he saw me he was like "where are you going....ooooh" It was the greatest, I will never forget the look on his face when he realized what was going on! That may have been too much info..but you asked!

My boyfriend and I really aren't the "romantic" sort, but I try to do little things for him sometimes. Like, I just sent him off a big box full of his favourite chocolate and candy, a bunch of letters I wrote to him, some random doodles I scribbled, a worked-out static equilibrium physics problem just to mess with his head a little, and, to keep it from getting too sappy, I triple-bagged a (clean) pair of underwear he left here on his last visit, and threw in a few condoms with silly faces and phrases like "I want you to fill me with your sperm" drawn on the wrappers. And when I go home for Reading Week I'm going to bake him a batch of his favourite cookies... naked. ;)

We live apart right now, and I've been trying to send him presents once in a while that he isn't expecting. I sent him a sweater and a new pair of jeans and he was sooo happy. It sounds silly, but they looked great on him and he's been too busy to shop for himself. I think he just loved that I picked something that was perfect for him. Also, when we do see each other I try to keep it fun. I wore lingerie under my clothes this past weekend even though it was a 4 hour ride and not so comfy, but he was really surprised :) Next time, I think I'll bring a pair of handcuffs and a blindfold. And maybe some whipped cream...

I cook for him, that may not sound too sweet but you are talking to a woman who can eat out EVERYDAY without hesitation.

Sometimes I bake him something yummy. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach, right? Plus I know he'll share.

I sent him an autographed book by his favorite author... which isn't very romantic, I suppose, but I think it was a sweet gesture.

I sent my man a Mrs. Fields gift full of cookies and brownines... it was all valentine's day theme... and I hope he liked it. And I really dont expect anything from him for Valentine's day b/c he's pretty useless in the respect.
