Can I Be Romantic Without Money by sniperwolf(m): 4:59pm On Sep 13, 2007
I don't really know what it takes to be romantic, that's why I've to ask this kind of question:
What does it take to be romantic?
Must I be affluent before I can boast that I am romantic

It is very possible to be romantic without money. Tell her sweet things. Go to nice places that are free. I would say cook her a nice meal, but I don't know if this is done where you live, lol.

Write her poetry, or copy some nice poetry and put it in a letter.

What is romantic for me, and is free is honesty, respect, and honor.

These things are free, and yet priceless. wink

I totally agree with drkchoclik on this one.

I can appreciate a guy with a heart that even ask this question. When you put more effort into romancing a woman, with the things she mentioned, it shines fine qualities of a gentleman because you are putting your own efforts into it. Thats romantic alone. smiley Cooking together, listening to some real nice mellow muzik, maybe a nice smelling candle lit as u eat,, Or,, going for a walk to a park, beach or lake afterwards ,. .anywhere in ur area that has a nice outside setting wher u can catch a sunset or a full moonlight,, will be romantic. Take some fresh cut fruit, or strawberries & chocolates that should not be costly at all. If you cant take a walk together, rent a couple of movies or borrow some movies from a friend and take it to her house to watch together if u decide to cook together,

If money is a problem, tactfully suggest that she get a couple of things and u get a couple of things. That will be even better, and I think its fair. While some ladies prefer to be wined and dined at an expense, its not all about the flashiness that impresses ladies like me, Actually, this is right up my alley, as it gives u more 'interactive' time to really know one another more intimately on a personal level in a relaxing environment. No distractions, No suprising expenses. Thank u for being gentleman enough to ask, Have a romantic time with your lady,

love & light

Yes. Unless she's a grasping, materialistic type.

It's the thought that counts.

wat has money got to do with being romantic
Re: Can I Be Romantic Without Money by pamddi: 10:57am On Sep 14, 2007
well,  they women here seem to saying what the feel. but sometime reality is different. work hard, all the things they discribed above are true but money also helps to pay for things like the transport to the free park, cooking meals together,  needs money to get the food. the idea is to be a true romantic is be a great guy. honest, sincere, romantic, and can provide for his woman!

@Pamddi

Fair enough about the need for SOME money. But I took it as the poster has a little bit of money, not much.

Guys, especially younger men, think they have to be a "baller" to impress a lady, but it's not true

It's not about "stuff". I can buy my own "stuff". Most women can nowadays. Personally, I'd be willing to be the breadwinner in a marriage for a man that proves his worth to me in the love and respect he has for me.

Now I know this fellow is just looking to date, but the point is he needs to feel like he's good enough for the lady he has an interest in if he focuses in the intangible qualities, instead of acting like a money-grubing Bottom.

I too commend the poster for even having the humility to ask. It takes a REAL man to ask for help.

@sniperwolf:
Sir, you sound to be an intelligent, punctilious, solicitous individual.  With attributes such as those, you are already far wealthier than money could ever make you.

You have received so much wonderful advice from so many people, here, that I feel that I might add only one more thing:  The most romantic thing you can do is to be yourself

You, sir, strike me as having a great deal of class.  That is something that no amount of money can buy.  And class will benefit you in more positive ways that money could ever even hope to.

You'll be fine.  Remember that other men can offer her money, but no other man can offer her you.

(One other thing:  You won't need to "boast" of being romantic.  It will be obvious to those around you.   wink)

Uhhh, NO! A WOMAN 30-45 can say this because she's a WOMAN, and can provide for herself, and she doesn't need to play school girl love games to get stuff. A WOMAN that can provide for herself doesn't need to play herself out for stuff, she needs love and respect.

@topic
depends on what you refer to as being romantic. it differs for different people.
some people it could be buying gifts, flowers, and catching fun. i remember i had a friend, who saw any guy who could buy her a flower as being romantic.
while to others, it could be sitting and watching the sun set, taking a walk down the beach in a quiet evening, composing and reading poems to each other, just holding hands.
i think it just depends on the person's view. so try to see what your partner sees as being romantic and work on it, but note it does not have to involve money. so you could do little things that would mean more than buying her a diamond ring or necklace.
Re: Can I Be Romantic Without Money by chaloo(m): 7:21am On Sep 19, 2007
I appreciate the views of those who said that there can be romance without money. I would ideally wish for same thing but lets not forget that we are living in this materialistic world where nothing moves without money. The same applies to romance. You can take your girlfriend for a walk or listen to light music but at the end of the day you need pennies in your pocket to carry on your affair.
