The Hopeless Romantic

#Reverbbroads11 prompt for Day 28:Do you consider yourself a romantic person? Do you prefer fancy dinners, roses and chocolate romantic, or are you more non-traditional? What’s the most romantic thing you have ever done for a loved one or had done for you? (from Kassie)

Hmm, let me answer this prompt by explaining my last Mother’s Day gift. My husband and I don’t exchange Christmas presents. We tend to look for things we both want for the house, or places we want to go, or just a simple date night. When it comes to Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and birthdays, we tend to have a little fun – read: go overboard.

So, this past May, for Mother’s Day, when my husband was hinting that he needed ideas, I told him.

Me: What I would love, more than anything, is to have my Jeep reeeeeaaally cleaned. Cleaned out, washed, detailed, the works.

My husband: Really?

Me: Seriously. I’m in that car so much, and it’s driving me nuts –  and I don’t want to do it.

My husband: OK.

So, if by romantic you mean please-do-the-stuff-that-I-don’t-want-to-do, then yes, I am romantic. If you mean those sweet nothings and rose petals and candlelight dinners, then no, I’m just hopeless.

 

One thought on “The Hopeless Romantic

  1. Anytime our partners are willing to do or pay for someone else to do those things we really don’t want to do ourselves, that’s lotsa romantic. Tell your husband he gets some Good husband points.
