Remember these four things and you’re well on your way to sweeping her off her feet.
As you know, it's easy to get caught up in the details. Let it be easy! Let go of the complexity and make the gesture simply about her feeling noticed in a unique way. There's a reason people say, “It's the little things that make all the difference.” Small, intimate gestures enhance connectedness and vulnerability. That’s a good thing if you really care for this woman.
"Sometimes my boyfriend will simply text me a link to a romantic song that makes him think about me." -S.T.
The element of surprise always brightens the mood. Impromptu love notes are a favorite among women because you’re actively showing her she's on your mind. With today’s digital takeover and so much communication happening via text message and social media, the small gesture of a handwritten note goes a long way. The surprise can be as simple as a sticky note on the bathroom mirror. Or as easy as taking her car for a wash and fill up before she gets up on a Saturday morning.
"I travel a lot for work. My husband hides love notes in my suitcase so I find fun little surprises while I’m away. During my last business trip he’d hidden a love note in one of my shoes; I didn't notice it until I was sitting in a meeting. I smiled thinking about it and him all day." -K.C.
The art of noticing is an amazing skill, especially in dating. When you see her, what immediately stands out about her in that moment? Maybe it's the way her hair falls across her face, or that the color of her dress brings out a sparkle in her eyes...whatever it is, if you notice it say something! Sharing the small, unique things that stand out to you about her is a sure way to make a romantic gesture feel authentic and natural.
"We were taking a road trip for the first time to visit his parents and he hid my favorite candy under the passenger's seat to enjoy along the ride. He got bonus points for a.) knowing my favorite sweet treat and b.) that he doesn't think I need to be on a diet!” -E.A.
Give Without Expectation
A true romantic gesture isn't about being rewarded or compensated in some way for your actions. Don’t wait for a pat on the back or an immediate reciprocation. Make sure your gesture is coming from a place where you're not expecting anything in return.
"My boyfriend brought me a single sunflower on our first date. Ever since he includes at least one sunflower in every bouquet he sends me as a reminder of when we first met." -T.F.
