Get Ready For The Romance Reasons

The question as to whether men appreciate romance is still a mystery to most women.

Do they feel the need to be wined and dined just like women?

Popular opinion would have us believe that men do not care about romance.

men can be romantic
Men are romantic …. In their OWN way.
Learn it and appreciate it

Contrary to this belief, some if not all men, do appreciate a little romance once in a while as men have the same need to feel appreciated and loved just as women do.

Planning a romantic gesture for a man needs time and effort but it keeps the relationship fresh and balanced and men appreciate it as much as women.

Below you’ll find ten reasons why men love romance…



Romance involves spontaneity.

Men love new experiences, and their love for sports and danger proves this theory.

Planning an exceptional dinner or trip without his input will remind him of his spontaneous primal self.


Some Attention

A little romance gives him your undivided attention.

Having some time to focus on him gives him an assurance that he truly matters.

This boosts his ego.


No Guessing Allowed

Men do not like guessing games.

tell your guy your feelinga
Nothing says it better than actually saying it.

If a woman wants her man to do something, she needs to tell him. Planning a romantic date will allow any woman to describe in detail to her man what she wants and needs from him.

This will build his confidence in doing things right.


Some Touch

They may not say it, but men appreciate physical touch as much as women.

A lingering kiss or a touch on his shoulder is a reminder of how much he means to you.


The Visuals

Dressing up for your man for a planned romantic date will rekindle his desire for him.

Men are visual creatures.

Giving him a treat for his eyes will remind him of his initial attraction.



A man needs to feel appreciated as a man.

Treating him to a romantic date will assure him that he is a stud. Being in a relationship for a long time can set in familiarity. Men appreciate a woman who remembers that he is still the man in her life.

With time, this feeling tends to fade, and a reminder puts things into perspective.


Do As To Others

Men tell women what they want romantically by setting examples. If he has prepared a candlelit dinner with champagne, he would probably want the same.

Men react to these things in the same way as women, and appreciate the effort that goes to setting it up.


The Unexpected

Romance provides a chance to get him an unexpected gift.

Men love gifts as much as women.

They will love these romantic yet practical gestures with open arms.


The Passion

Celebrating your relationship keeps the flame burning.

Romance gives men the same warm feelings as it does women.

It rekindles the passion from a romantic act.


Those Feelings Too

Finally, romance brings out a man’s feelings.

Women should take these opportunities to find out what makes their man tick.

  1. Well i don’t think so that men fee the same touch as much as women do!!!…That’s only point I don’t agree…For a man A TOUCH from a new or an unknown women may matter but not from his own women…he just feels it like a normal touch nothing else!!!..when it comes to women a touch matters to her way more then men…

  2. Great article, both men and women need romance and need to feel appreciated. Thanks for sharing!

    1. So glad you found the article to your liking.
      Though I gotta ask which areas most resonated with you? I’m always interested in the areas that most interest our readers :)

  3. Aww. This is definitely one of those posts you just want to read over and over again. It’s hard to think that guys are like this but growing up with 5 boys in the house gives me an idea. I have really sweet brothers and I think all their girlfriends are just so lucky to have them.

    1. Yeah I agree there, Stacy. We’re just a bunch of softies, deep down who are looking for romance too. Though probably in different ways since we have different outlooks and hormones.
      What was an insight into romance that your brothers gave you?

  4. Great points, Neil. All of us do love romance, some say it, some don’t. Loved that pick from Notebook. It is one of may favorite romantic movies and book too. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Do you think, Kelly, that some couples are challenged in not understanding how the other ‘expresses’ romance and therefore thinks they aren’t romantic?

  5. This is just… I don’t even know what word can perfectly describe this. I do agree with you on this, as much as we don’t want to admit it. Men… they’re softies and at the end of the day they melt like butter on the palm of our hands.

    1. Shhh, don’t be going telling everyone the way guys really are, Veronica :)
      You know, we’re just like women except with a few different bits. Everyone in the world loves to be romanced and to do some romancing. It’s just in the way it’s done and for the other party to actually recognise the attempts and accept them for the loving way it was intended. The acceptance is the part that tends to be overlooked and stops future romance from happening.
      Do you get what I mean there?

  6. I couldn’t help but laugh. I can’t imaging my boyfriend like this. I guess it’s just boys being their ‘turtle-ish’ selves. All tough on the outside, all soft on the inside.

    1. Oh maybe you don’t really know your boyfriend well enough, Joy? :)
      Is he at all romantic with you or maybe you don’t show that you actually like romance. Which is it?

  7. Thank you Neil for the informative post. I agree with most of your points especially the one regarding appreciation. we men really need to feel appreciated.

    1. Then you guys need to start coming out of your shells a little more and start talking about your need to be appreciated lol

      If you can’t speak then what you get in return can’t be blamed on anyone else by yourselves, Ali. Really!
