101+ Romantic Things To Do With Your Partner

skb-love-icon I was in awe when I stumbled upon this 101+ Romantic Things To Do With Your LifeMate List. Not only because there are 101+ romantic gestures out there but also, someone actually had time to write down a 101+ list. Wheww! I appreciate all that effort so I think it’s just a nice gesture to actually post the list and let everyone know about it.

FYI: I agree with some of them. Some of them are a little unrealistic. But you already know all that  well I hope so anyway :).

1. Watch the sunset together.
2. Take showers together.
3. Back rubs/massages.
4. Listen to classical music and cuddle in the dark or with blacklight.
5. French Kiss.
6. Hold your wife with hands inside the back of her shirt.
7. Whisper to each other.
8. Cook for each other.
9. Skinny dip (discreetly).

11. Dress each other.
12. Undress each other.
13. Kiss every part of your wife’s body.

103. A Short Story – You know the guys that go around in restaurants and bars with the basket of roses selling them? My husband sought him out one evening before coming home from work, bought the entire basket of roses, and left them on my doorstep, then called me and told me to go to the front door! That was so romantic!
104. Be waiting at your mates car when they get off work, out of the beauty salon, get done grocery shopping…be creative!

106. Kiss your mate on their forehead.
107. While your lifemate is out. Put a bag of Hershey hugs on the door knob. Put rose peddles mixed with Hershey kisses on the floor leading to the bathroom with lights off. Candles for your light lined up all the way to the bathroom also. Two dozen roses lined all over the bathtub. With a card in plain view. And on the card write ” Now that I have hugged u before u walked in the door, kissed the ground that you walk on, and showered you with roses. Will you be mine 4-ever.” – Joseph Wade Stepp
108. I am in the military so for anyone that has a long distant relationship with their spouse. They can create a jewelry box, you can buy all you need at an inexpensive gift shop store, and decorate it with the things she likes to send you in her letter or emails, for example hearts and stars and stick them all over the box. Then inside the box you can write a thought for every day of what you remember as your great memories with her in your relationship, or things you like about her, reasons why you fell in love with her or even things you want to plan with her for the future. Then tell her when she receives this magic box that when ever she feels lonely like me when I am not with her or thinks of what I am thinking about throughout the day, she can open the box and be reminded that she is all I am thinking about.
109. Take a latex balloon (not inflated) and fill it with some confetti, a love note to your lifemate and a photo of yourself. Take the balloon to a balloon shop and have them fill it with helium while the items are still in the balloon. Attach a pin and a note that says; “Please pop” to the balloon string. Leave the balloon by your lifemate’s bedside before he/she wakes up in the morning. My husband really enjoyed this romantic action.
110. Post a Lovenote to her, even if she is with you, using her office/house address or care off her friend’s postal address.

    Nice list.

    “96. Learn to say sweet things in foreign languages…” We do this in 3 languages right now. About 10 years ago, I found out how to say “I love you” in Elvish, since she was really into LOTR.

    Oh, about 102…I wouldn’t want my wife to shave my face!

  • http://www.ourdatenight.com Gina Gray

    Great ideas.
    However more in depth details of a mysterious date nate can be found here as well.

  • http://www.sitepitch.com Peter

    Great post, I’ll have to try some of those tips.

  • Bambie

    21. Wear your husband’s clothes.

    I love this so much. There is just something inherently intimate about wearing what routinely touches your s.o.’s body. Plus it makes me happy to know that the next time he wears whatever it was I borrowed, it will smell like me and I’ll be on his mind…

    • Anonymous

      But what if you smell bad?

    There’s multiple ones about buying gifts. And many of them are about sex. And it seems several of them are just different things to do before saying “I love you”. But some of them are really great, I love the one about the 11 real roses. And the sleep together.

  • alisha

    #48- singing to eachother isn’t romantic it’s cheesy. it’s more romantic to sing WITH eachother.


    i love 109 my fav.

  • Carolina

    Wow…this is really nice. I just realized that I do this with my husband a lot… It’s nice to know that our relationship is pretty good. :) 109 is really cute I might try that! Also 108 because my husband is in the military so he’s a away a lot. The box seems like a great idea.

  • Zach

    I used A lot of these and these make your relationship better even when your fighting. Some of these could be used to also say sorry. These are great romantic things.

  • max g

    this is the “cheapest ENLARGED list of romantic things I’ve ever seen”
    first of all, why is there a mention of a wife? what if you’re just dating or something?
    I could go on and on about how much these are not the greatest romantic advices.

  • just kiddin

    have kids

  • Sarah

    Anyone that does everything on this list is a total sissy. Some of the stuff is lame as. 76. Drive home from work just to see your lifemate, before turning around and going back to a business meeting in the evening.
    77. Sit in your car in the driveway, honk, then blow your lifemate a kiss as you leave for work.
    ^^^Sissy stuff

    • lilsissyboy

      MAn that totally true

    • Kalsea

      Uhhh… I actually like it when my guy does stuff like that for me, especially considering we don’t get much time together.

  • JackLloyd.

    ’105. Buy 11 real roses and one fake one…leave a note that says I’ll love you until the last rose dies… -Mark Ansley’
    She is going to LOVE this one. Also, cook/bake together. Pancakes are good, you can draw a heart or something in syrup on one.

  • Gary

    111. fuck like rabbits.

  • Michelle

    My husband is a great guy, but he is NOT romantic in the least bit!!!! It hurts because I have been with him for 7 1/2 years, and I wonder if he just doesn’t care to make me feel special anymore, or if he thinks I’m okay with the way things are. This is a very beautiful list of things I WISH my husband would do.

    • Re

      sometimes you have to sort of force them to do these things…like i like jumping on beds and do it very randomly… i’ll just randomly cross in front of the tv naked while he is watching his favorite show… cook a good meal and serve it naked … call him randomly…

    • http://twitter.com/Kerwin_Jason JasonKerwin

      very true things

  • Littleyellowfish

    Some of these are lame and repetitive, but a lot of them are super sweet (: I LOVE the one about wearing your lovers clothes… Ive never done it though, I don’t have an excuse to. Me and my boyfriend don’t live together and we can’t spend nights at eachothers houses, so there’s really no reason for my to have a shirt of his or anything :(

    • ltnlady

      You could always borrow one of his shirts then take a picture of yourself wearing it and text it to him as a ‘good night’ message :)

  • Jake

  • Kelly Leanne

    My boyfriend is the greatest! He’s sweet and always has me smiling! So I wanted to show him that I think a lot of him and I listen to what he says etc. So one morning I woke up and I had a dream he wanted to go to the lego shop, and he said it was weird because he used to love it when he was a kid! So brilliantly, I went on eBay and bought him lego. But he’s a bit old to play with lego now so I glued all the lego together in a big message using super glue.
    It said I<3U and his name underneath so it was balanced and neat.
    He loved it and I was proud of what I did… Its the little things that count.. So pay attension to the small comments.

  • Jessica

    “Everyone deserves a second chance.” and “Really love each other”? Seriously? These aren’t things to do together – these are “how to behave in a relationship.” What a waste of a read.
