Welcome to Monday. We'll spice it up with a fun question. Let me preface this with one comment first. This is a question somewhat directed at couples or those involved in a relationship. If you are single just relate back in time to when you had a romance in your life.

So, what’s your Idea of a Romantic Night in? I have simple needs and the first one is to be ALONE! You would think at our age, kids moved out over 15 year ago yet there is always someone here. Grandson who is 18 and going to college lives here but still there's a constant string of others coming through. I do love them but for me a romantic evening would be to have the house to ourselves! Then we'd fix a nice supper...maybe BBQ a chunk of rib eye, a baked potato with fresh chives and a cheesecake for dessert. Then maybe we'd pop in a good movie and just relax. Most likely I'd fall asleep in the recliner...lol But I'd eventually make it to bed. Then the frosting on the cheesecake would be to sleep in the next morning.

I think I need to make this happen soon!

So what's your idea of a Romantic Night In? smilewinkgrin

I'm involved in a long distance relationship (uggg). Anyhow, he has the perfecto job for me to hang on the job with him (got to love those City Bus Drivers!) As I am so blessed to just have him in my life, anytime is actually romantic in its own way. On his breaks I'll usually get a kiss. Just watching him work and getting to be with him seems romantic to me, but like I said it is a long distance relationship. On the rare occassions where I can spend more than a day in town, we will actually do a lot more than just hang with him at work while he drives a bus for 8 hours. We will go out for dinner (or he cooks, and he actually does!) and We go to McMenamin's which is a "haunted" hotel & bar n grill in his town. We spend the night there, take full advantage of their soaking pool (an oversized jacuzzi like a small pool, outdoors that is actually very romantically set in scenery), we even snuggle and talk by the fireplace, and just fall asleep in each others arms. If we don't have the money to go to McMenamin's for the night, he usually cooks me dinner, lights the fireplace at his place and we end up just cuddling and talking. But like I said, we dont see each other a lot, especially if overnight due to the distance. We find ways to "adapt" to be romantic. He says the cutest things....like when I asked him how come he hasnt got me any flowers, I get "Because I dont want to get you something that wont last, what I want to get you is something that will last forever"

Chutz, after what you described, I think I want to date YOU! (just kidding) turn devil

You just described my perfect "date night." Whenever my husband and I have a romantic evening, we pretty much want to do the same thing. Quiet, early dinner at home (with cheesecake, of course), movie, snuggling on the couch.

We should do that more often.

I would just like that food that you are going to have on your romantic evening. sounds good!!!

Somehow food always gets into the conversation. It is all your fault. Now I want a ribeye steak and cheesecake. lol...

Hugs, Karen

Oh thinking of all the food, makes me forget the topic. Romantic evening. Well, I guess we have shrimp. That is always a winner for us. Then some music. Then being alone to cuddle. The kids are a few miles away, so hopefully they will call before coming over. hahaha

Mom, I like your idea of a romantic evening. My idea would be to have someone watch my son overnight so I could just spend some quality time with the hubby. We would have a nice dinner, and then lie in bed with a movie and snuggle. It's possible I would fall asleep, but, I might not.

I guess I'm pretty simple too in this department. Alone-together time (please!), maybe a short, leisurely walk, good food I don't have to make or clean up. (But somehow going to a restaurant always seems like more of a hassle than it's worth to me, so we'd eat at home.) I'd agree with a movie, a good conversation, cuddling. Actually cuddling isn't easy, since every movement or holding out of my arms hurts :( but it is possible for a few minutes, anyway.

We've been together over 30 years and he's still my best friend, so in spite of everything we must be doing something right, or maybe just somebody up there likes us??!!
