13 Things About Dane Bramage
13 Romantic Tips

Well it's that time of year again. Valentines Day is upon us. If you are one of those last minute people like me, then you still haven't figured out what to do for the special person in your life. Don't fret. I have 13 things guaranteed to rekindle the flames of romance in your relationship.

  1. Show her you care about her finances and give her one of those discount coupon books. I always remove the "buy one get one free" food deals so she doesn't sneak out to dinner with someone else

  2. Always comment on her appearance. Tell her big flat feet are common on women who have attained her size

  3. Nothing says romance like those three little words: Candied Brussels Sprouts

  4. Never be a cheapskate on a date. Splurge and "Biggie Size" her meal.

  5. Be considerate. Be sure to hide the holes you poke in the bottom of her chocolates to identify them. And never tell her which ones you spit out. Let it be a surprise.

  6. She'll appreciate your frugalness when you cut pictures of the labels of designer perfumes out of her magazines. Then glue them onto the cheaper designer knock offs; besides no one can tell the difference in the smells.

  7. Sharing a romantic meal at a fancy restaurant can really spark the passion. So order what you want and just let her have your salad. You weren't going to eat it and it's all she orders anyway.

  8. Every woman appreciates the gift of cosmetics in bulk. Don't forget the beauty trowel.

  9. Reinforce the appreciation you have for the hours of work she puts in around the house by staying home and watching the game.

  10. Belching very loudly after a meal in a public place only affirms the level of comfort you feel with your special someone.

  11. Every woman loves receiving battery chargers and jumper cables especially just before your big surprise evening at the Car and Boat Show

  12. Women love it when you get frisky so chase her around the house with the socks you just peeled off after a twelve hour shift.

  13. Women love the gift of furniture. Invest in a comfortable sofa. You never know when it will be your bed for the night.

There you have it. 13 sure fire ways to start a fire of passion. Did I mention that I've always been single? You don't seem surprised by that. If you have a sure fire romantic tip, leave it in the comments

My husband said you must spend a lot of time on that couch. Bwahahahahaha. Thanks for the laughs. Have a great TT and Valentine's Day. :)

Thanks for these tongue in cheek romantic tips. The one about a man showing his appreciation for the woman's housework by staying home to watch the game had me cracking up.

Eve said...

Great list! You really had me laughing - and the ability to make a woman laugh is very romantic.

Jill said...

DAne, I will leave you eat the salad, and have those ribs instead of you!
Have you try all of these?

Very funny. Except for #11. I'm so there on that one... as long as I can sneak onto the Ferrari exhibit and sit in whatever prototype they brought this year.

PrayerMom said...

That's amazing! I passed it on to our favorite band's mostly male message board. Unfortunately, most of my tips are on how to stay single.

AS is typical with most males, if you do just the opposite of what he suggests, you will do just fine!

Mia said...

LOL....great the furniture one.

Happy TT!!!

Darla said...
