There is nothing like a small gesture of romance to brighten up a really dark day.
We all have those– crappy days and sometimes, weeks or months. For me, the past few weeks have been a doozy, leaving me really tired and left with very little alone time or time to feel refreshed. And so there is nothing like a small romantic gesture to ease the burden of those rough days. Truly, whether we are married, dating or mingling, someone’s positive actions can really help lift our spirits and help us feel loved.
Here are 5 small but very impactful– and romantic gestures– to make the bad days so much better! Each one of these gestures have made me smile and feel better during the crappiest times. They are truly simple ways to show someone you care when they need to hear it the most, and they cost nothing.
A surprise hug
A knock on your door from someone beloved offering a hug is a tiny gesture, but romantic nonetheless. Who doesn’t love a surprise visit from someone special?
That hug can make the stress and hardship of the day meltaway.
A tender note
An inspiring note that shares how much someone is thinking about you. A note of encouragement. A sexy note.
Handwritten. Emailed. Texted. All are beautiful small gestures that can really make someone feel loved when the person needs it most.
Some hands on attention is a recipe for romantic stress-relief, no doubt.
Whether you’re newly dating or married for ages, a nice massage after a crap day is a wonderful way to say you care about someone.
A homecooked meal
Feeding a stressed love interest or partner is a great way to ease that person’s burden. Make it romantic by adding candles and some wine.
Plus, the dessert= chocolate, of course.
An hour or two in bed
Cuddling. Relaxing. Reading to one another. Listening to music.
Just being there to listen or relax is romantic. Quality alone time makes a big difference when someone needs the love and support the most.
It really is easy to make someone feel loved. It takes less effort than you even realize, but it reaps a lot of reward!
