What would you do for the one you love? (anything in general)

Asked by Vincent_Lloyd (3007points) June 30th, 2010

Just asking since I think most guys would do something casual or maybe something normal. Only the ones that really care do the really romantic things and go to high levels to show their love to who ever. But just another “what” type question. Would you guys do something romantic or would you go do something normal?

How would you differentiate between “normal” and “romantic”?

It depends on how much love is there. But I think I am capable of doing something romantic, I would like to do something big and haughty like on a movie, but since I am not rich I could do the romantic dinner and rose petals on the bed surprise thing.

I go out of my way to do romantic things for the one I love.
Will I tell you what I’ve done?not a chance ;)

I would donate one of my organs to save her life:
a kidney, part of my liver, a lung, even my heart to save her life!

She is my other half and her well-being is that important to me.

Sometimes the “normal” is romantic, I think. My dad wasn’t the flowers and candlelight dinner kind of guy, but my mom loved a long soak in a hot tub; I think it was the only time she had just to herself in some peace and quite. When she mentioned to my father that it sometimes got a little cold in the bathroom he tore out all the dry wall and the tile and re-insulated and redid the entire bathroom. He didn’t do it for himself, he took salt water showers in the Navy in WWII and that probably would have still been good enough for him; he did it because he loved my mother and he wanted her to be comfortable and enjoy her baths. Not everything that is romantic fits into some standard mold.

Gee @lillycoyote that is special! Thanks for sharing!

@Cruiser Yes, I think sometimes we are blind to the things people do because they love us, how they show us that they love us, just because we have some preconceived notion of what is “romantic” or some fantasy standard of how a person is supposed to express love.

What’s normal and special to one is different than the next person. One person thinks flowers are romantic, while to another it is common place. IMO, every once and a while, it would be nice to have something done for me that to me is romantic. I have a difficult time getting my boyfriend to do this, and I don’t think it is because of a lack of love. He’s not the mushy type, but once in a while, so as to not make it jaded, it would be nice if he would put aside his lack of “mushiness” and do something romantic for me because I have asked him to. He doesn’t seem to grasp that concept yet :(

@Blackberry Why does it depend on how much love there is? A Romantic dinner and rose petals are a lot to do for someone you love a lot?

@Ponderer983 I think I meant to say it depends on where one is in the relationship. I wouldn’t do that after a month or something.

Ponderer983's avatar

@Blackberry Well that makes sense

lillycoyote's avatar

What’s romantic for me is when a man does or says something that says “I get you. I not only get you but I love you both because and in spite of it. Get it? I love you, relax, you’re home.” If that makes any sense. That’s about as romantic as is gets for me. Maybe it would be nice if flowers and a candlelit dinner came along with it, but if it doesn’t it’s O.K. with me.

I would do the normal stuff…..listen, respect, forgive, appreciate.

lillycoyote's avatar

@jonsblond I’m with you. I’d take that stuff over rose petals and a candlelight dinner any day.

I would provide transportation to and from the airport whenever he/she asked.

I married my best friend and would do anything for her that she wanted. I know her well enough to know that she would never ask me to do anything that would compromise my principles. I would also give my life for her in an instant if it were necessary to save her.

It depends on how much I love them.
