10 Ways to Romance Your Guy ~ Billy Caputo

  1. Give him a massage. Every man loves a massage, even if he doesn’t ask for one. Many men are too shy to tell you what they really want, and if you and your man are alone and you can tell that he feels a little tense or know that he’s been hunched over his desk or a computer all day, then give him a little shoulder, back, and neck massage to relieve some of that tension. He’ll feel great and will see that you really care about him. This can also inspire him to give you a massage, so everybody wins!
  2. Get him tickets to a game. If your man is a die hard 49ers, Jets, Nets, Devils, or whatever fan, surprise him with tickets to the next game that he’s been really wanting to go to. If you like sports or think he’d like the company, go with him, or even say that the tickets are just for him and his best friend, to show that you’re okay with him having some guy time. He’ll really appreciate the gesture and will feel like you care about him. You don’t have to be a sports fanatic to be interested in the things he cares about.
  3. Cook his favorite meal. Don’t force him to sit through two hours of home cooking when he’d rather be having a burger and fries, but do pick the right time to luxuriate over a delicious, tasty meal prepared by you and you only. You can surprise him and say that you’re just making ordinary pasta and a salad when you’re really preparing his favorite meal, whether it’s lasagna, steak, or whatever floats his boat. Bring some fine wine or ales into the picture and your man will be floored.
  4. Give him a small gift. There’s no need to give big, fancy and elaborate gifts to your man just to show him how much you care about him. Instead, it really is the thought that counts, and giving him a small token of your love when he least expects it can be far more powerful than the gift of a new record player. Instead, get him that record he’s been trying to find forever, find him a rare t-shirt with his favorite band’s logo on it, or get him a new nice ballpoint pen when his old one runs out of ink. He’ll be romanced and touched by the gesture.
  5. Leave him notes. Nothing can make a man swoon faster than a sweet note left at the right place at the right time. Whether you’re getting up and leaving the house before he does, or just leaving him a note at his place, take a minute to write him something sweet that shows that you’re thinking of him and leave it in a place where he’s likely to find it soon, whether it’s on his computer, his mirror, or on his car window. He’ll be touched by the gesture, and by the fact that you’re thinking of him when you’re apart. This will definitely show you care more than a text message!
  6. Do him a favor. When your man is busy and stressed out, take the time to notice how you can help him get through his day more easily. Whether you’re washing the pile of dishes in his sink, picking up lunch, or dropping off his dry-cleaning for him, you can surprise him with the gesture, and romance him by showing you care. Sure, cleaning a pile of dirty dishes may not sound romantic, but the fact that you put some thought into helping him out will sweep him off his feet! Plus, this will give him the idea to do favors for you when you need some help in return.
  7. Show up with his favorite treat. Sometimes, nothing will make your man feel more romanced than if you show up at his place holding his favorite treat, whether it’s the delicious deep-dish pizza form the other side of town, scones from his favorite bakery, or the delicious milkshake that he loves more than any other dessert on the planet. This will show that you’re put thought into what he likes and that you’ve made an effort to make him happy. Bonus points if he’s been holed up at home, working or studying, without having time to step out to get anything too eat.
  8. Give his feet a rubdown when you’re watching TV. Sure, watching The New Girl orSurvivor together may not feel like the most romantic time of your relationship. So why not spice it up by giving your man a nice foot massage instead of just sitting on the couch together? Put his feet on your lap and give them a nice, thorough massage, and he’ll be blown away.
  9. Leave him a message in the mirror. When your man is taking a shower, quietly sneak in and write “I love you” or another sweet message in the mirror. When he gets out, he’ll see your special words written over the steamy glass and will feel truly touched. This works best if the bathroom is a bit larger and you don’t freak him out if he catches you in there.
  10. Get him tickets to see his favorite band. Check out the concert schedule for his favorite band and surprise him with tickets before he even knows they’re coming to town. He’ll appreciate the gesture and the effort you made to make him happy, and will definitely be romanced, even if his favorite band is decidedly something unromantic. Sometimes, getting him a gift that can lead to an amazing experience is better than a gift that can lead to instant gratification.
