How To Romance Your Boyfriend, Based On What Real Guys Find Romantic


My boyfriend is definitely the romantic one in our relationship. He's the one who remembers random things I've said in the past and uses those things to create an unimaginably thoughtful gift that I didn't see coming in a million years. OK, I'll stop gushing here and cut to the chase. Of course, I want to show my boyfriend I love him in the same thoughtful way he conveys that to me, but HOW do I do that? Well, a recent Reddit thread in which guys explained how to romance your boyfriend may be helpful here.

And the best part? These are actually creative, thoughtful pieces of advice. They're not just dumb dudes telling you to go home and boink your boyfriend. These are real answers based on what really makes these guys feel happy and loved — other than sex. Of course, every man is different. What some of these guys enjoy may not be the same thing as what your boyfriend would enjoy. But use these responses as some inspiration! Maybe combine two of the suggestions and do one super-romantic gesture for your partner (or your husband or your casual hookup buddy whom you aren't calling a hookup buddy) to show them how much you care.

He wants you to take him out and spoil him for no reason at all.

A compliment goes a long way for him.


He just wants to be called... your king?


Plucking his back hairs is a real act of romance for him.


All right, now, go plan that grand romantic gesture you've been working on!
