7 Unromantic Romantic Gestures
“Hearts are not had as a gift but hearts are earned by those who are not entirely beautiful.”
— W.B. Yeats
GO SEE THAT SHITTY MOVIE THEY WANT TO SEE
There’s probably a movie on in the cinema that you think looks absolutely awful, but they’re dying to see. Just do it for them and why not do it in style, somewhere like Stella Cinemas.
There’s probably one place they always love to go for lunch. Surprise them by bringing them their favourite lunch, from that place, into their work. If you can’t do it yourself, get it delivered and paid for through Deliveroo or Just Eat.
RUN A RELAXING BATH & LEAVE
Not all romantic gestures have to invole you being there. Run your loved one a relaxing bubble bath, light a few candles and stick on a some Adele or Michael Buble to set the mood.
TAKE THEIR MAM OUT TO LUNCH
Another romantic gesture where they’re not involved is taking their mam out for a lovely lunch somewhere like Póg.
WASH & CLEAN THEIR CAR
While your significant other is busy at home, take their car out to be cleaned and valeted, or else do it yourself and make a funny sexy video of you doing it.
TIME OF THE MONTH RITUAL
Lads instead winsing and wining when your girl has you time of the month, come up with a montly ritual to spoil her when she’s not feling the best. Lay out the hot water bottle with cosy clothes, buy a bunch of her favourite snacks, and prop her up in front of an evening of Netflix.
LEARN HOW TO MAKE THEIR CUPPA
It seems simple but there is nothing better than when someone knows how to make you the perfect cuppa without even asking. Learn how to make it the way they like it to earn some brownie points.
