It's hard work, but you gotta do it!
Romance is a word that is lacking in the male vocabulary, so let me spell it out for you.
R -- If she's not relaxed, that's probably a sign that NOW isn't a good time. Resolve her tension with a back rub or draw her a bubble bath for ONE.
O -- Overtime. Romance is not wham bam. It starts in the morning, when you set toothpaste on her toothbrush, includes a surprise bouquet of flowers sent to her work Just Because, then a chilled bottle of her favorite wine set out to greet her when she arrives home... Put in the TIME and even, The Overtime.
M -- Mandate. Don't play the "But it's been weeks" card. There's no mandate when it comes to romance, even if you are married, stooopid!
A -- Adore her and she will melt in your hand.
N -- Use your noodle not your nob. Your noodle will tell you to turn off the lights, play some soft music... Your nob will sound like a Nike commercial.
C -- Comply. That's right, suck it up, and learn what she wants you to do to make her happy, and in the case of romance, what she likes. If you don't know what that is, find out.
E -- Effort. Even if you can't follow the above advice, usually a woman will react nicely when she notices her man has put in some extra effort.
Ladies, have any tips for the men out there?
