Is your relationship a bit too comfortable? If you’ve been missing some of the magic you used to have with your wife, it’s time to switch things up a bit. You don’t have to wait for her birthday or Valentine’s Day to make her swoon. Make her day any day of the week with these awesome 12 romantic ideas that are sure to win her over.
1. Tell her she is beautiful
What woman doesn’t want to hear that? Don’t just reserve telling her this when she gets dressed up—tell her even when she’s in her jammies and without makeup. You’ll definitely win her over.
2. Play footsie
Usually dinner is just dinner. Your lady loves when you change things up a bit. When she least expects it, slowly slide your foot over and see what happens. She may jump at first, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t welcome a little more.
3. Take a romantic walk
How often do you and your lady just leave the house and walk hand in hand for no other reason than to spend time together? She’ll love that one-on-one time with you. The fact that you thought of it and wanted to do that with her will definitely win her over.
4. Write her a love note
It doesn’t matter if you know what to say—copy a poem if you want. Just write something that conveys your thoughts about her, and she’ll love that you took the time and went out of your comfort zone to do it. It’ll be a treasured keepsake for years to come.
5. Turn on a chick flick and snuggle
Your lady may give you a look of shock when you turn on a chick flick—after all, it’s called a chick flick for a reason—but she won’t be able to resist sitting down and watching it with you. And then snuggling. Just don’t fall asleep!
6. Pick up her favorite treat
What treat does she often buy for herself? Pay attention! If your lady is having a bad day, or you just want to be romantic, stop on the way home and buy it for her. After dinner, surprise her with it. She’ll love your thoughtfulness.
7. Plan a picnic
There is just something about a picnic! What’s not to love? Yummy picnic food, wine, a sunny day, a big tree, a beautiful setting…. Be sure to bring a super comfy picnic blanket for you both to share. She’ll feel special that you went out of your way to get all the food ready and pick out a spot just for the two of you.
8. Give her a massage
You can’t go wrong by offering your lady a massage! In addition to making her back feel better and her body more relaxed, she’ll enjoy being touched by you in such a sensual way. Hopefully it’ll put her in a very romantic mood and lead to something more.
9. Slow dance to romantic music
You probably don’t get many opportunities to slow dance with your wife, but why wait? Just turn on some romantic tunes and take her by the hand and lead her into a slow dance. You don’t have to be a great dancer to slow dance—you just have to want to hold her close. She’ll feel the romance from head to toe.
10. Have a make out session
Couples tend to make out often when they first get together, but then the make out sessions tend to fizzle out as time goes on. She definitely misses it. So jump in the car, find a secluded spot where you won’t be bothered, and have an honest-to-goodness make out session. It’ll definitely win her over.
11. Cook her dinner
You plan it. You buy the food. You cook it. All that arranging tells her you love her more than anything else. Also, she won’t have to worry about cooking that night! Total win-win. With each bite, she’ll feel the romantic vibes you are sending her way.
12. Spend lots of time on foreplay
Rather than getting to the main event in between the sheets, spend your sweet time pleasing your lady with lots and lots of foreplay. You can’t get much more romantic than that.
The way to a woman’s heart is all about giving her time and attention. There are plenty of ways to up the romance factor in your relationship, so definitely give any of these 12 tips a try!
