Healthy relationship tips: 10 Tips on how to make him more romantic

One of the biggest things that annoys women about men is that some of them just can’t find it in themselves to be romantic. They can be pretty good at it at the start of a relationship, but then, as time goes on, it seems to slowly fade away, almost if though he feels that the romancing has been done, so now he can forget all about that romantic stuff. Well, you can re-light that spark of romance with your man, all he probably needs is a bit of encouragement, so read these ten tips on how to show your man that romance doesn’t need to be a thing of the past:

1. Make time for romance – time for just the two of you

Are you sure you’re giving your guy a fair chance to be romantic? Many couples these days are just so busy, that they don’t have any time to be romantic. Make sure that you both set aside some time, just for the two of you, all on your own. No TV, No children, no telephones and give yourselves to talk and to enjoy each other’s company.

2. Lead by example

He might need some hints and reminders on how to be romantic, so why don’t you start the ball rolling with some romantic gestures of your own. Buy him some surprise gifts or take him on a date. There’s nothing wrong with showing him the way that it should be done.

3. Send him texts or emails

Send him some messages of love by text or email. If he’s lost all sense of romance this will remind him and encourage him to return the compliment. Remind him that you love him and that you care, and it will also remind him that he needs to tell you the same sometimes.

4. Find a way to spend quality time together

Don’t wait for him to do the arranging, do it yourself and book that romantic dinner for two or weekend away. Men forget that these things are important sometimes. It’s not that they don’t care or enjoy it; they just don’t get around to doing it and so, it goes to the bottom of his list again.

5. Tell him!

He may not even have realized that it’s been months since you went on a date or shared some quiet time together. Most men would hate the thought that their partner is unhappy, so reminding him that it’s been a while won’t hurt him, he’ll be glad that you reminded him and hopefully will fix it.

6. Let him know that it’s OK to be sensitive

Men spend much of their childhood being taught not to show their emotions and this is partly why they are not as romantic, as their girls would like them to be. Let him know that it’s OK to let go of the macho-man image at home and tell him that a bit of love and tenderness will not make him any less of a man to you.

7. Don’t let him forget about important dates

Give a man a chance, and he will forget a date. Birthdays, anniversaries and the like are not hard wired into a man’s head in the same way they are in a woman’s.  Drop hints, when it gets close to important dates, or keep a calendar on the kitchen wall, in a place that he won’t miss it. That way you’ll get a ‘surprise’!

8. Give him some education

Let the movie stars show him how it’s done and buy in some romantic DVD’s to watch. The best trick here is to get some films that include action mixed in with romance and that way you’ll be sure that he watches.

9. Don’t expect him to get it right from the first time

If your man hasn’t been been a romantic for some time, then he’s likely to make a few mistakes, as he gets back into the swing of things. Give him some encouragement, even if he gets it terribly wrong. We all have to fall off a bike a few times, before we get really good at it!

10. Show your appreciation

And, when he finally does start to remember how to be romantic, be sure to let him know that you are pleased! Positive feedback creates more effort for the next time, so encourage him for his efforts and you will be rewarded in the long run.
