View Full Version : oh how romantic.

January 4th, 2013, 4:24 PM
What are some of your ideal romantic situations? Something that you personally would like to do with someone you love.

My idea of romance is a bit silly and light-hearted, I suppose. I'm spoilering mine.

Laying in bed listening to The Lumineers while the sun peers in through the window.

Having a mini-concert in the car while parked at the lake at midnight. Or you could get out of the car. Just not when it's cold.

Making plans that get ruined, so you do something else ridiculous and he/she never lets you live it down and makes fun of you for it. But you both totally enjoyed it cause you were together anyway.

Falling asleep on Skype together.

Playing different games and just silently enjoying each others company. It's a bit more relaxing than romantic, but oh well.

Cooking dinner together and watching random sitcoms. ...Well, good sitcoms.

I like small surprises! Like candy. Surprise me with Sour Straws. That's most romantic. I like to surprise people with a little something as well.

I'll edit some more in later, but these are things I like. I know my idea of romance is probably a bit innocent, but oh well.

Watching movies and music videos in our underwear all night.

Sharing a swing together and just talking.

Anything involving kissing is good too.

Oh and surprising them with dinner and seeing them smile and eating it together.

Just sitting in completely silence while holding hands.

I know people see me as a cold hearted WOMAN who rolls his eyes at kissing scenes in movies and but I'm super romantic at heart.

Almost hungover at a diner in the middle of a desert.

Well... I'm a bit of an "odd duck" when it comes to romantic things.

I'm happy cooking, cleaning, baking & brushing hair.
((No idea why, I just adore taking care of hair xD))

Oh, & of course making & giving jewelry.
It's one of the few skills I have which is actually USEFUL!

Oh geez, this is gonna be such a long list if I actually put down everything.

I am a super duper amazingly hopeless romantic. Like groan worthy and corny. But sometimes I'm super shy too. Usually romance ends up with me saying something then I either get a groan, smacked over the head, or 'awww'... a few times all three in that order.

A few examples...

During high school a former girlfriend of mine moved away and the relationship ended on a rather sad note for both of us. When she came back to the state to visit colleges (She was only actually visiting the colleges for two days.) I skipped school that entire week, ended up with multiple detentions for skipping, but was so worth it to see her every day.

She was playing Dragon Age, having trouble fighting a high dragon. I took the controller, beat the dragon easily, handed it back with a smile. She complains I took the controller. I explain that she should know I'd always slay dragons for her. (I got smacked for that one, I remember, mainly because she hit me with said controller.)

I threw a surprise birthday party for one of my ex boyfriends. It sort of failed because a third of the guests were late, but it was so fun.

Not really my idea, but I took a gf (the one who moved out of state) the Mall of America and took her to the Build a Bear Workshop to make a bear.

My favorite kind of date is just basically sitting and talking and just together-ness.

Honestly, I once met someone by throwing toilet paper at each other. We were working my grandparent's food shelf and stacking tp.

Aaaand I honestly can't think of anymore. I'll put more if I do think of any.

Cuddling during a horror movie, skyping for 6+ hours (or all night for that matter!) and get lost at each other's eyes as we stare at each other. <3

Kissing underwater in clear blue/green water (bonus if there's a waterfall overhead). That's what I consider to be the most romantic thing.

January 4th, 2013, 9:33 PM
Although I've been single most my life (sad I know):
Anyways, maybe everything said above and a night under the stars, cold preferably lend her my jacket (I always have a jacket or coat with me soo... xD)

January 4th, 2013, 9:34 PM
- Chatting for hours without stopping
- Holding each other's hands
- Cuddling each other during a movie
- Lying down together
- Giving each other massages
- Giving each other gifts

Oi, I awwwwww'ed through half of this thread, but when I go to write mine down I get just kinda embarrassed. xl

Sitting in the car, laughing and singing along to the radio until that one song comes one that, half way through, we can't help but look at each other and smile.

Laying in silence under the stars at night, just holding each other, and eventually falling asleep like that ... and for one night, one fleeting moment, the whole world just melts away.


Going to one of those huge Capture The Flag games and putting way to much stock into it. (More fun then romantic, but they can be the same thing.)

Cooking her an amazing dinner,everything going wrong, and ultimately us sitting on the couch eating chinese take out and watching classic Horror movies.

Being able to just pick up an instrument and just jam our together.

Yeah, I know I have a weird sense of romance. "^^

Oh goodness..

Cuddling. Cuddling is quite possibly the cutest thing ever. It also gives you time to hug someone you love over a long period of time!

January 5th, 2013, 4:19 PM
I wouldn't know haha. :I
Only things I can think of are cheesy/lame and not going to be posted here. Actually, I can only think of one but still. I'm not exactly a romantic person. o;

each other's eyes as we stare at each other
Wait so that's considered 'romantic'?
Oops I think that's happened to me. :I I don't know if he was necessarily staring at my eyes, though. We were just floating around in a lake with our chins resting on a this floating board thing, staring at each other. :x

Laying down with someone's head on my chest while I stroke his hair. I imagine that to be the most romantic thing ever.

i think kissing in the rain is pretty romantic, well, i havent done it yet cause it hasnt been raining when i've been in a relationship but oh well. X'D though i like cuddling too, and holding hands. :'3 and slow kisses are pretty romantic aswell.

Someone I love fell asleep while we were skyping once. It was too cute @[email protected] I decided to go to sleep, too. Then Skype lost connection and it made that weird noise and woke us both up!

Besides that, I'd also like to lay down together and watch anime.
BACK MASSAGE (for me, of course)
Cosplay a pairing we like
Take a bath
And just hanging out really, like playing games and stuff

January 10th, 2013, 3:23 PM
Oh god.. lots of things :3
Marathoning favourite shows and just being bums together..
Having a midnight "picnic" under the night sky
Showing each other something special like a special place or an old photo or piece of art that meant a lot to you.
Giving or getting massages
Laying in bed in the morning and just chatting away lazily till the afternoon
Getting/sending cute love letters in the mail to each other.
Falling asleep next to each other
Doing something silly and spontaneous like icecream for breakfast
Telling each other bedtime stories
Doing something to dedicate to each other (singing a song and replacing a word with one of our names or something dumb like that)
Coming home to rose petals scattered on the ground like a trail leading to a surprise.

Basically.. doing anything that has thought about the other person put into it.

Oh man the list goes on. My list seems to paint me as someone who really takes pleasure in being lazy HAHAHA :3

Hm, honestly, I can't think of anything romantic at the moment, which is strange.

Let's see. One of my ideal romantic moments is when a boy does everything he can -- postpones this and that -- just to be with the girl he likes. Or vice-versa.

I can't really think of anything except being with the person you just 'click' with.

Just sitting around talking about absolutely nothing, but that special kind of absolutely nothing that you can only talk about with someone you love.
