Don't give up the dating! Keep the dinner at a romantic new bistro. Has the of dinner and movie become obsolete, only to be replaced by phone texts, Facebook posts, instant messages and tweets? The person you plan to marry is not the "hook-up."
In the New York Times, reporter Alex Williams mourns “The End of Courtship.” It doesn't have to be that way! Moore and Perper agreed that courtship is customarily activated and controlled by women, driven mainly by non-verbal behaviors to which men respond. So women what do you want? Gifts? Flowers? Chocolates? Lingerie?
Lingerie is an all time favorite gift with the majority of women. Men need to know what sort of lingerie she likes. When it comes to buying lingerie for your lady, men have to think sensuous.. Lingerie can also be a very unromantic gift if not properly chosen. Buy something she will feel good in and don’t make it so provocative that it seems more like a gift for you than for her.
Jewelry is reserved for your serious relationships. Don’t give fake jewelry and pick an item that would have special meaning for your love. Think gold, sliver or platinum, locket with a picture of the two of you, charm bracelets and/or your or her birthstone are all thoughtful gifts.
Chocolate is one of the most popular food types and flavors in the world. Chocolate candies and chip cookies have become very common, in most parts of Europe and North America. Gifts of chocolate molded into different shapes have become traditional on certain holidays. Chocolate is also used in cold and hot beverages, to produce chocolate milk and hot chocolate.
Flowers are always a natural choice for your lady love anytime - just because gift. Flowers are a pretty safe bet for most women. Unlike other gifts, flowers are appropriate, whether you've been dating her for one day or one year. You don’t have to stick to the classics like roses, if she’s not a traditionalist. Go for something exotic like lilies or orchids. Less expensive choices are seasonal flowers and plants.
