I often tell my boyfriend of 2 years that he doesn't have a romantic bone in his body. He's an alpha male with a capital A and has, what I tell him, "cave man" views and values. As we head into our second Christmas together, I've realized that romance isn't just candlelight dinners, or sensitive words, or sky-gazing on a starry night.
His recent shopping trip for my Christmas gift(s) brought this to my attention. Suddenly, I found myself sitting back and thinking, "Aww, that's so romantic." Why? He could've taken the easy way out. When he asked me for a Christmas list, I emailed him ideas complete with purchase links. Simple...click, add to cart, purchase. He would've been done in less than ten minutes. A lot of men would've jumped at the ease of that.
Instead, he subjected himself to a full day of doing the one thing most men hate: Shopping! He left the house at 10:00 am and didn't return until nearly 5:00 pm. I have no clue exactly where he went or what I'll be opening on Christmas morning. I do know, thanks to a few phone calls exchanged throughout the day, that he spent hours at the dreaded mall, then hopped all over town, and enlisted his sister's help via phone as well. By the time he returned home, he was totally frazzled, exhausted, and teetering on the edge of a foul temper, but he had done it all for me.
I realized then that, while he may not be traditionally romantic, there are little things he has done throughout our 2 year relationship that stood out to me as being sweet at the time, but should have set off my romance meter, too. Maybe it did subconsciously. I know it certainly made me fall head over heels in love.
