Male vs. Female - Romance

Male vs. Female - Romance

We were having a discussion this morning over our morning coffee, as to what the meaning of “romance” means to each of us.

It became very obvious, during our conversation, that men and women differ greatly in their ideas of what is romantic.

The following are examples of those differences…discussed, as well as encountered in the past:


sexy lingerie (on her)

the woman being sexually aggressive

a blow-job during commercials or at half-time

pizza and beer

dirty talk




soft, mood music

wine or champagne


good food

the guy wearing something sexy (other than just having a hard cock while naked) \8

satin sheets

sexy lingerie (on her)

the guy wearing an intoxicating (but not overpowering) cologne

rose petals

a bubble bath or shower together

long, slow, and sensual body massage

whispered sweet-nothings and dirty talk {=}

Now in defense of my husband’s seemingly lack of romance, I will say that when we got engaged, he was very romantic.

I came home from work and my apartment was lit with only candles. Soft, romantic music was playing, a dozen of my favorite roses were in a vase on the table, and as I looked around the apartment, taking it all in, he stepped into the room, dressed in his best suit.

He took me into his arms, and after kissing me, he led me over to the couch, where he professed his love for me, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him; coordinating his words with producing and opening the engagement ring box.

Of course, that was the epitome of his romantic being.

Since then, I am the one to light the candles, put on the soft, sexy music (which he changes to oldies), put on the sexy lingerie, and put together an intimate setting which has included good food, drinks, and mind-blowing, aggressive, sex.

So, what’s been your experience with romance?

I definitly fall into the 'girl' catagory of romance. See my recent blog on this subject Just in time for Valentines day

Btw, I've found in my own experience, (Keep in mind that I'm bisexual) that guys might not SAY they are romantic but... in fact they are. It just takes some doing to get them off their asses and away from the TV. Just like anything else -tm

These blogs are only fun if you LEAVE comments!!!

A couple of weeks ago I sent my then ex-boyfriend a dozen roses at work. We had just started seeing each other again after weeks of separation. They were in a nice thick black ceramic vase with tan accents, very masculine, and with sexy red red roses in it so there was no mistake about the message sent. It was an all out statement of intent from me to him.

He was so shocked he could barely talk to me for days. I was beginning to think it had been a mistake until he told me he was leaving the girl he was seeing so we could be together again. I sent the roses for effect, and they worked because, yes, men are romantic at heart.

I give you 5 stars (out of a possible 5). You've got the romantic thing down pat..!


I'm glad it worked for you, but I know my husband would not enjoy flowers. Best of luck to you with your man.
