Keeping the Romance Alive

Jonathan Welford Jonathan Welford • 9/25/14

Romance. It’s a million-dollar industry that creates an expectation of that Hallmark moment, when the perfect life is constructed from a few romantic gestures, an endless stream of cut flowers, candlelit meals and romantic getaways.

Yes, it is perfectly feasible to meet these predefined expectations.

For me, however, the key part of creating a romantic feeling is to have a moment in time where you show another person they are the most important person in your life.

Romantic gestures never get old. Instead, they just become classics.

The purpose of this article is to give you some inspiration for romantic gestures that are a little bit different (and can be used at any day of the year).

Don’t forget doing something romantic outside of the expected days makes the gesture feel even more special.

Here are some ideas that may give you some inspiration.

1. A romantic letter left somewhere unexpected.

In writing, tell him how you feel about him and how wonderful you feel when the two of you are together.

2. Create a memory jar for the year.

Jot down his every act of kindness and how he made you feel. At the end of the year, give the jar to him as a present.


“A romantic gesture creates that special

bond between you and your loved one.”

3. Share a dessert.

There are few things more romantic and special than sharing a dessert.

4. A late night walk.

Just the two of you sharing a moment, no distractions, no Internet, no mobile phones.

5. Perform a lap dance for your partner.

This is made even more romantic if you’re not a good dancer, and it leaves him in splits of laughter (and with happy memories).

6. Watch a movie together.

Just the two of you cuddled up on the sofa. Unplug the phone and enjoy the evening together.

Romantic gestures don’t have to be expensive or overblown. A romantic gesture is purely something to show your other half you are thinking about them and you appreciate them.

Feeling wanted is a key component in any good relationship, and a romantic gesture creates that special bond between you and your loved one.

In what ways do you keep the romance alive?
