Post by SLS »

Of you and your spouse who would you describe as the "Romantic" in your marriage. How do you define a "Romantic"?

I'm definitely the romantic one. I plan all date nights, sex play and mood settings. She just sets back and enjoys the ride ...

My definition of romance is a focused activity to share an intimate moment or experience. An action to deliberately cause one to reflect on their relationship

My wife is. I must type another sentence for this post to go through.
Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.

@threesacrowd is the sentimental one, I am the romantic. DW has kept wilted roses in our bathroom before I'm sure for the pleasant memory those bring to her. I am the one that likes to light a candle (s), more likely to write a love text, I plan our getaways, date nights and fill our vases in the house with flowers. It is just the way God created us, there is no good or bad about it, no right or wrong about it. It just is what it is.

I am. I'm the sappy one, the one who remembers the most "firsts" and wants things to go just right. I like to plan surprise activities or events, the little tokens of affection.

Although...my DW pulled a good one on me the other day, we'd been on the edge of the emotional cliff with teen stuff and life's curve balls along with each of us misunderstanding what the other needed at times so we were emotionally off. DW came to the office and brought me a Reese's candy bar which had strategically placed it next to her body under her shirt. :o When she came in, she placed my hand on her clothing so I could feel the candy bar along with the body part it was next to. :o It was clear if I wanted the it, what I would have to do. :D (Yep, she gets me!)

Since I'm the one who plans things ahead of time to surprise and delight him, I'd say I'm more prolific, but he does surprise me as well so we're both romantic.

We are both romantics in our own way. I do more of the sweet talk, every day small gestures.

He is better at planning the big "surprises" on anniversaries and other holidays.

I think of "being romantic" in gestures and words....in that definition, he is.

In a fantasy, ideal dream-state....I think I am.

I tend to appreciate romance better on others, for whatever reason (I have my theories), it doesn't seem to fit well on me.
God can change what people do, behavioral patterns that have been in play for decades. He can change what we do to cope, to find comfort, to survive conflict, to count. Rahab had done a same old thing for years... and then she did something new.

We are both romantic in our own ways. DH remembers all the firsts, either in his head, or from his journal. I get flowers, cards, and gifts at all the right times. He found the perfect Mother's Day gift a month ago, so he bought it, 'because it looked just like me' and gave it to me. I told him I would wait til then to open it, so he remembers and doesn't buy another gift for me!

I am more romantic in the 'physical touch' department. He gets romantic little gestures here and there, and way more hugs and kisses than I get from him. I also give him cards and some gifts, but yes, sometimes his card might be late. Dates other than anniversary and birthdays are mostly lost on me and it doesn't matter to me like it does to him. (What's interesting is how one of our children has inherited that gene. I imagine DH was just like that when he was young.)
