What is the most romantic date you ever had? Mine is on a new years eve!!! I had a blind date for that night, we went to a night club in Knoxville TN, where we danced all night. The feel of his hand in the small of my back as we danced and of course the dozen roses the next day at work. Gosh he was drop dead handsome.........but later I found out he was MARRIED!!!!!!!!!Oh well I at least got to have some fun!!! That skunk! LMAO I knew it was too good to be true!!!

This question I can answer! My ex-husband was kind of romantic. Problem was, I was only 1 of the many he romanced! LOL BUT, just before my 50th birthday I had met a guy online. It wasn't a date site, we happened to meet playing internet checkers. We would have Fri. nite 'dates' playing checkers and this lasted for about four or five mos. Over that period I found out he worked for the Fed. Gov. in D. C, and lived in Maryland. I worked for a state gov. dept. It was also during this time that he had a death in the family, had been estranged from his father and I found myself talking him through a reconciliation, for which he was most grateful. So when I mentioned my birthday was coming up, he said that I shouldn't celebrate a milestone like that alone and he wanted to do something special for me. WELL HE DID. He flew in, we had a suite with two bedrooms, two baths, living rm. and kitchenette! We had seen each other's pictures, but I wasn't prepared for this 6' 4" angel! We went sighseeing during the day and that evening, (dressed to the 9's and smelling so good I was swooning) he took me to a 5 star restaurant for dinner. We stayed up and talked until we both fell asleep. When I took him back to the airport, he gently kissed me goodbye (first and only kiss.) I knew that it was not a 'connection' for him. You know how you can just tell. It would have been for me. He had been married twice to trophy wives and I guess he wanted a third. (This man turned out to be an executive in Pres. Clinton's cabinet! He had his federal I D and I had my state I D to show each other. I could have fainted!) He was wonderful. He paid the expense of an overnight airfare, all the activities, gas in my car, dinner, hotel, and breakfast! But it ended there. And it took me a year to get over it.

Re: Timothy5 write: In recent times, the cutest "date" I've had was a phone call from my 7 yr old granddaughter, asking me for a date, as she hadn't seen me "forever" (3 days, actually) and she missed me! (I think she had the huffs with her mum that day, but I'll still accept it)

How utterly sweet, but I'm not sure that qualifies as romantic. Even though I'm sure your granddaughter enjoyed that as much as you did. :) But it sounds to me like you need to get busy planning a romantic date for some lucky lady out there. I know there aren't a whole lot of sheilas on here, but surely there are one or two who might catch your eye. You've got the right stuff. You've just got to use it. (Giving you a pat on the bum as I gently push you out the door on your way.)

Okay, being serious now. I have not have a really romantic date in so long I can hardly remember any. I've had some dates who insisted on very expensive dinners - but really a good connection a spark is what makes a great romantic date not the money spent. A walk in the park with a picnic of good wine and cheese would win me over just as easily. Oh wait - thinking back to California days...I had quite a few good dates out there. A favorite was not planned so much as it just happened. We started at the Musee de Mechanique - where the old nickle mechanical toys like the fortune teller and laughing Sal are, followed by a poetry slam in the same place....then we had a late dinner at a yummy hole in the wall chinese restaurant where we knew the owner. Then we dropped in on MB our friend who was running a little bar in NorthBeach. It was after hours and about 20 cooks, waiters, and good musicians were hanging out playing music, telling stories, laughing and singing till the wee hours. And finally we were ended on the beach with a little fire going, our arms wrapped around each other, watching the sun come up as a school of porpoises' leaped along the horizon. sigh

Re: Timothy5 write: Well Blue, I haven't been on a date in a while but I guess anything that involves Strawberries, Whipped Cream, Honey and ... Ohh! hang on! that's an obsession, not a date, Sorry.(Blush) But I do recall a lovely dinner during a cruise along the Nile in Egypt. Beautiful warm evening, candlelit table on the top deck, one of the biggest moons you could ever hope, great meal and just being serenaded by the night. A perfect beginning to a perfect evening! In recent times, the cutest "date" I've had was a phone call from my 7 yr old granddaughter, asking me for a date, as she hadn't seen me "forever" (3 days, actually) and she missed me! (I think she had the huffs with her mum that day, but I'll still accept it) Re: bluegirl2006 write: Timothy you haven't shared your most romantic date. How about it? Maybe you can give some of these gents pointers. ;)

Strawberries whipped cream and gasp* Meeee? My arn't you just the bold one. lol. But umm err well, I would so take you up on a cruise along the Nile by moonlight. That is swoonable. I could give cleo a run for her money I think. Especially with some slow dancing on the deck followed by copious strawberries and whipped cream...whew. Need a boy to fan me with a palm leaf now.

I'm thinking long, scenic drive with some hand holding, some easy smiles and comfortable conversations while the landscape moves and changes like living poetry and then we get where we're going too soon but in good time to take a nice slow stroll and pose for silly pictures strangers take because it's Norman Rockwell's town and everyone there is all too eager to be kind and you know they take the best shots, before dinner at the theater where a one man show steals spotlights and the red wine must be an aphrodesiac though I know it's not and then he looks at me over the rim of his glass just 'that way' and I remember what it was to be seventeen and I know that he's remembering too, so with a smile he takes my hand and pulls me to my feet to bow us out and into the night for the now nervous yet lighthearted drive back that once demanded attention but now just background because all I can think about is this damn heat right here in the center of me and how he's put it there and what he's going to be willing to do about it. ;-)


In your rocking-chair, by your window dreaming, shall you long, alone. In your rocking-chair, by your window, shall you dream such happiness as you may never feel. –Theodore Dreiser

I do agree with you Nat. The little things that happen everyday are the best romance of all. The smallest things like remembering to take out the garbage without being asked or cooking dinner on occasion or even just letting me watch my tv show if ours are on at competing times and better yet watching it with me(and vice versa) are some of the best romantic gestures. But sincere sweet words are good too. A simple "you look really pretty today" or "I love when you wear your hair like that". Or even a notice and thank you for something I went out of my way to do for him. One of the most romantic things in my relationship with my guy happened just a couple of days ago. We have been talking about sexual fetishes lately and I decided to do some internet research on one of them. While I consider myself open-minded about whatever two consenting adults do in private, I'll admit to being slightly naive. Part of what I read in my research on that fetish scared the bajeezus out of me and made me really really uncomfortable and I talked to my sweet man about it. Know what he said? He said, "Let's make it a rule that you don't go exploring unless I'm holding your hand. You should know its not a good idea to go exploring by yourself. You need to take a buddy with you. You need to take me with you." Now I'm a really independent person and always have been. I'm used to doing most things on my own out of necessity. I'm not used to having someone in my life who wants to look out for me. My -ex never felt the need to take care of me in any fashion. I guess I always seemed too capable of taking care of myself. But my sweet man knows without me telling him so, that even though most of the time I CAN take care of myself, I still need him to take care of me sometimes. Physically and emotionally. To me, that is essence of romance... and I am one lucky lady.

My most romantic date was when he cooked for me. Put on music, hottub ready, the wine... I think that romance is not always special occasions it should be a tiny thing done on the spur of the moment. On secret is to listen to your mate. Then remember that one thing and bring it home the next day. Romance is in the eye of the beholder- if bringing home a dozen roses is romance ( yes, I agree it is) but how often does that happen? The little things happen much more often. One daisy, remembering that I like a certain brand of chips I find those small things romantic and sexy. They make me feel warm and fuzzy alllll over.... Nat32132

Go to B&N and get a large print edition of "1001 Romantic Ideas". Don't forget to also get the audiobook. Put the CD in the player in HIS car. Gift wrap the book and put it in HIS driver seat. Then as Tim says go out and get a Louisville Slugger(baseball bat)and put that by the door. If he STILL doesn't get it well the next step is your choice... I will say this for all the LADIES as well: I am a very romatic guy. But after almost 17 years of marriage I realize I was doing ALL the romantic work. It's like playing tennis against a wall. You can set up romantic encounter too you know.

Lying on a blanket, holding hands, watching the stars on a beautiful moonlit summer night and just talking about anything and everything we wanted. Very romantic and sweet. Very intimate.
