3 Simple Romantic Things You Can Do for Your Partner

Limousines. Expensive dinners. Rare flowers. French chocolates.

Chances are good your partner loves it when you splash out on expensive stuff to show how much you love them. But real romance is also shown by everyday gestures — simple things that show how important they are in your life. Here are a few.

Send Random Texts

Why not shoot them a silly text in the middle of the day? It goes a long way to keeping the romantic flame alive.

But be careful. Her coworkers might see the text over her shoulder if she doesn’t expect it to be highly personal. Don’t send a video of you riding a bicycle naked through your neighborhood with the caption, “You make me go buck wild!”

Order Their Favorite Food

Four-cheese pizza? Angel hair pasta in white cream sauce? Pineapple and ham pizza? What is their favorite food? Hopefully it is not pineapple and ham pizza. Because if it is, you should break up now before it gets ugly.

Cooking for someone is romantic. But if your cooking skills are in line with your rugby skills, try ordering their favorite food to be delivered. Nothing says romance like a brown bag filled with cold food that is an hour and a half late.

Get Creative

Come on, you can do it. Put on your magic thinking cap and come up with some ideas. How about this? In Columbus, Ohio, you can take axe-throwing lessons together. Nothing says “I love you” like developing the ability to split open a human heart from 40 yards away.
