12 Men Share the Romantic Gestures That Melted Their Hearts



It’s totally a myth that men don’t love compliments, thoughtfulness, and romance as much as the ladies. So, if you’re looking to woo your man sometime soon, check out these 12 tried and true gestures, according to Ask Reddit!

1. It really is the little things

“One time I told a girl I liked red plum jelly. Next time I stayed over she had red plum jelly in the fridge.

Honestly, guys like anything that shows that you care. We are very emotionally isolated most of the time.”

2. A little consideration goes a long way

“I’m legally blind in my right eye and one girl I was dating always made a point to get seats on the right side of theaters so that I’d be able to see everything without turning my head. Really simple but it blew me away when I caught on to her.”

3. Everyone loves a real letter

“So I’m traveling abroad for work right now, won’t get to see my girl for like six months. She sent me a stack of like 20 letters, each in a different colored envelope. Each one is labeled “Open when you’re happy” or “Open when you’re sad”, “Open when you can’t sleep”, etc. and every one contains like 2-3 pictures of us doing something together, and a letter to suit the situation.

It really brings a smile to my face, and makes the distance easier. I love my chick!”

4. Because it’s nice to be seen

“On Valentine’s Day or maybe it was our anniversary, she gave me a deck of cards labelled “52 Things I Love About You”, and each card had some unique little quirk of mine. Half of them were things I didn’t even realize I did. Absolutely melted my heart. We’re not dating anymore, but I still hang onto that deck of cards, even though now it just makes me profoundly sad.”

5. One of the best things about being in a relationship

“Pretend to care about my day. I know it might sound condescending, but I don’t mean it that way. After a 12 hour shift and hour commute each way I just need to talk to somebody, for a minute or two about my job that I know you don’t care about. Simply the attention and a hug can turn any stress around. That alone can mean so much.”

6. Have husband. Can confirm

“Back. Scratches.”

7. Guys like flowers, too

“My wife brings me flowers sometimes. I think it’s adorable.”

8. The way to a man’s heart…

“I’m a sucker for dessert so anytime a girlfriend has baked me brownies, or an apple crisp, or any dessert really, I turn into this guy.”

9. Romance is in the eye of the beholder

“On days I work before my gf she will get up earlier than usual to make me breakfast and a lunch for the day. It makes a HUGE difference because I am not at all a morning person. I know that may not be “romantic” but it definitely gives me warm fuzzies.”

10. Never leave without saying it

“My girlfriend gently wakes me up with a kiss and a huge hug every morning before she heads to the gym or daily errands. It doesn’t seem like much but it honestly gives me what I need to drag my anxiety-prone ass out of bed every day. She always says “I love you” before she walks out of the room.”

11. You make me feel like a real man

“Close and emotionally charged hugs. When she buries herself in my chest or neck. Makes me feel all strong and protective and absolutely melts me.”

12. Some changes are good

“We recently became parents, and I know it’s not really a romantic gesture, but seeing my wife become a mum has made me fall in love with her all over again.”
