How to Be Romantic: Tips for Being a Romantic BF

How can you be a romantic boyfriend? Being a romantic man is all about doing the sweet and cute little things that will make your woman feel loved, admired, and spoiled.

Gifts are not the only way to get your woman's love. This article provides a modern twist on how you can bring the romance back into your relationship by using age-old tips like hugs, cuddles, and kisses along with Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

1. Walk up to her and give her a long hug.

A long hug is one of the most romantic ways of telling your girlfriend that you love her without actually speaking a word. A hug signifies romance, togetherness, and puppy love.

Pick a random moment and just walk up to your girlfriend and give her a hug. Rub your hands over her back as you hug and hold on for at least a couple of minutes. She will feel like the happiest girl in the whole world.

This tip is for guys who don't have a creative way with words. Search for a webpage that is full of "I love you" messages and send the link to your girlfriend by email, text message, or in a Facebook post. Write something sweet along with the link, for example:

  • All the messages on this page come from my heart for you.
  • All these messages are exactly how I feel for you.
  • This website reads my mind and heart because these are my feelings for you.

3. Put in the effort to look nice and groomed when you go out on a date with her.

Regardless of whether you have been dating your girlfriend for a few months or a few years, wearing good clothes and grooming yourself to look nice for a date will send her the following signals.

  • Her boyfriend wants to look good for her.
  • Her guy thinks that she is worthy of being impressed.
  • Her man wants to flirt with her.

All these signals will light a romantic spark which you will notice in the way she reacts when she sees you. It will remind her of the time when you both began dating and were trying hard to impress each other. This will give her the priceless feeling of experiencing of puppy love again.

4. Make a cute photo collage of your pictures and order a print.

It takes less than five minutes to make a sweet collage of your photos on many of the popular photo-editing software and applications. Pick out some of your best pictures as a couple and make a collage.

Write a cute caption at the bottom of the collage to add a romantic touch. Below are a few examples.

  • The happiest moments of my life.
  • Me with my love.
  • The best thing that has ever happened to me in my life.

5. Whisper sweet romantic things in her ear when you are in public.

The trick to being a romantic boyfriend is to understand that the smallest of things can make a girl feel weak in the knees. Even a short whisper in your girlfriend's ear can leave her smiling for a long time.

Your whisper doesn't need to be meaningful or too deep. It can be about the cutest and silliest of things that come to your mind. Here are a few examples of sweet nothings you can whisper in your girlfriend's ear.

  • I want to tell you a secret.... You are looking gorgeous.
  • Don't tell anyone, but I am the luckiest boyfriend in the world.
  • You are looking so pretty that I just can't stop staring at you.
  • Don't mind if I stare at you because you are looking sexy.

6. Write a short romantic rhyme for your girl.

Girls love it when guys express love freely, and one of the ways to do it is to write a romantic rhyme. It can be a short poem of about three to four lines and you don't need to be a poet to show your romantic side.

7. Hold her by the waist, look into her eyes, and rub noses.

Being held at the waist by her guy and having him look into her eyes while a cool breeze blows through her hair is an eternally romantic moment for any girl. This is the stuff movies are made of.

Recreate this iconic romantic moment by grabbing your girlfriend by the waist at a random moment. Don't say a single word and just keep looking into her eyes. Rub noses and enjoy the tender moment for a few minutes.

8. Pamper her when it is that time of the month. She will see your romantic side in hindsight.

The way a guy treats his girlfriend when she is having her mood swings during that time of the month, says a lot about his character and his feelings for her. Show your girlfriend that you will romantically tolerate her anger outbursts and laugh off all her irritating emotions when she is suffering from period pain.

You will not see instant results of this attempt at being romantic, but your girlfriend will bask in the attention and thank you when she is back at her normal self again.

9. Hold hands when you have a romantic conversation with her.

Even the most romantic lines that you say to your girlfriend can become flat and boring if you don't say them in the right way. Hold your girlfriend's hand and look into her eyes when you have a cute conversation.

Grab her hand and rub your fingers on her palm and her wrist as you speak to her. Look into her eyes and make sure that you don't say something that she won't like.

10. Give her cute handmade gifts.

Even if you have the money to spend on expensive jewelry and different fragrances for your girl, a cute handmade gift can go a long way in bringing the romance back into your relationship.

Handmade gifts show that you are willing to spare the time and effort to do something cute and silly for your girl. It can be something as simple as a sweet message on a handmade card, customized coffee mug, or a keychain.

11. Share love quotes on Pinterest and Instagram.

Use social media to show your romantic side to your girlfriend. Pinterest and Instagram are awesome ways to share images that have love quotes.

Find images that have cute greetings and quotes written on them. Share these images and if your girlfriend doesn't have an account on these networks, share them on Facebook.

12. Interrupt her while she is talking, and give her a kiss.

Next time your girlfriend is talking seriously to you about something, give her a kiss on the lips. Hold on to your peck for at least five to ten seconds. Make sure you close your eyes while you kiss her.

When she asks why you interrupted her, just say that you couldn't resist giving her a kiss. She will instantly break into a smile and kiss you back for being such a romantic guy.

13. Indulge in soft and romantic intimacy with your girlfriend.

Romantic intimacy from a girl's perspective is more about enjoying the togetherness and closeness with her boyfriend. This is one of the most important things that women look for in a relationship. Understand this and step into your girlfriend's shoes when you cuddle or make out with her.

Soft and romantic intimacy revolves around kissing, hugging, and cuddling. Enjoy an afternoon cuddling with your girlfriend while watching her favorite movie or let her sit in your lap as you gaze at the stars from your balcony. Don't expect the intimacy to turn sexual.

14. Remember dates and anniversaries.

The one thing that sets apart romantic boyfriends from the rest is that they can remember important dates and anniversaries in their relationship. These dates include birthdays, celebratory days like Valentine's Day, and anniversary dates of a relationship.

Set reminders in your iPhone if you are not good with dates. Pamper and spoil your girlfriend with gifts and cards on each one of these special dates. Your efforts for these couple of days will earn you the tag of being a romantic boyfriend for the rest of the year.

15. Stand in the rain together for at least ten minutes.

Some of life's most romantic moments arise at the most unexpected of times. The next time it rains when you and your girlfriend are hanging out, just grab her hand and lead her outside.

Don't worry about what will happen if you get wet. Feel free for a change and just enjoy the sweet moment with your girl under the drizzle. Hold hands, stare into her eyes and give her a hug that she will remember for a long time.

16. Write a romantic love letter for your girlfriend.

Letters may be one of the oldest ways to express love but nothing has yet been invented that can match the romantic charm of a handwritten letter.

You don't need to have a certain theme or an agenda to the letter. Just keep writing all the cute, silly, and romantic things that come to your mind. It can be your sweet memories about your first date or the moment when you gave her a kiss for the first time.

Finish your letter by drawing a heart and using color pens to doodle all over the page. Your love letter will become a trophy for your girlfriend. It will be more valuable than her most expensive jewelry.

17. Don't ignore traditional romantic ideas—roses, candlelit dinners, and long walks.

Regardless of whether you and your girlfriend are teenagers, young adults, in your twenties or older—traditional romance in the form of candlelit dinners, roses and long walks on the beach have never gone out of vogue.

The magical charm of these activities will give your image as a boyfriend a romantic touch. She will get goosebumps every time you start off a date by giving her a rose or staring into her eyes while sitting across her at a candlelit dinner table.

18. Flirt with her by giving her compliments all the time.

Compliments have been forever used by bad boys to charm women in movies and by lovers to win over the hearts of their princesses in novels. A compliment can add a romantic touch to any moment, any conversation, and any situation.

To be a romantic guy, you must take the art of giving compliments to a new level. Look into her eyes as you tell her how pretty she is, and carry a deep emotional expression on your face.

19. Use sticky notes to leave surprise romantic messages for your girlfriend.

Post-its may have been invented to be used on office and study tables, but they are a handy tool to bring out your inner romantic side. Show your playful side to your girlfriend by writing cute love messages on sticky notes and leaving them all over her personal belongings.

You can stick a note on her car windshield, on the flap of her backpack, inside her purse, or on the corner of her jacket. Draw smiley faces and write cute messages to melt her heart every single time.

20. Send her romantic messages by text or messaging apps.

Girls really like it when their boyfriends miss them when they are not together. It gives them a sense of being wanted on a much deeper level.

You too can give your girlfriend this romantic feeling by sending her messages by text and all other messaging apps like WhatsApp that you both can use on your iPhone, BlackBerry, Galaxy, or other smartphones.

21. Tag her in romantic tweets and Facebook status updates.

Make a public display of affection on social media by tagging your girl in romantic tweets and Facebook updates. You will make your girl blush as you let the whole world know that you are crazy about her.
