Whether it’s a quick love note left on the foggy bathroom mirror or planning really thoughtful dates, sometimes one person in the relationship can be a little more lovey-dovey than the other. Who is the romantic one in your relationship? Is it you or your fiancé(e)?

    Me, definitely! FH can be romantic sometimes, but I'm super mushy most of the time!

    Hands down, it’s me. I sometimes write him love letters.

    I think it really depends! We both show romance in different ways. He's more thoughtful in the way that he likes to surprise me all the time, and I show romance in a way that I constantly do things to make his life easier!

    Me, mostly. But he does some of the most amazing, sweet, romantic things so definitely gets credit.

    Definitely FH! He leaves me love notes and surprises me with scavenger hunts and just goes out of his way to do such nice things. I try to reciprocate as best I can but I don't think I'm as creative as he is. My go to is to surprise him with home made cookies when he gets home from work.

    We both are but if I had to pick who was more so it would be him! He's such a romantic! 😍

    Him all the way him. I used to be a hopeless romantic a couple heart breaks ago. I work to be a better "other half" but he is naturally a charmer

    I write my SO letters as well! And then I put them in the mail and they're consistently surprised when they show up!

    What's an example of one of the "most amazing, sweet, romantic things" your FS has done for you, Sarah?

    I would have to say both of us, we’re both romantic but do have somewhat different love languages. I like to do cutesy romantic things like leaving him messages and making him things and he always is the type to surprise me with a gift (even just a candy bar 😊) or take me somewhere.

    I would say me, but then every once in a while, he does something that knocks it out of the park. He keeps surprising me, which I love.

    Well... Neither of us are very good at the conventional romantic gestures. We both try, but it doesn't always come out the way we planned. We are more about thoughtful gestures for each other. He will run me a bath, I lay out his clothes and bring him a towel while he takes a shower, we surprise one another with a treat or favorite meal, things like that.

    By far he is.

    I usually say FH, but I'd say it's more even than that. He's so much more creative than I am, but we both try to do cutesy, sweet things for each other, even if it's just a texted paragraph of things we love about each other.

    I would say that it is a fifty fifty split! He does really sweet things for me and I do really sweet things for him. We are definitely both romanticists.

    Definitely me! He can be romantic at times but I have to put a bug in his ear first. But I love to write him notes or surprise him. He can't hide surprises with me, he gets too excited.

    I think that's healthy, Gunnabeaburch!! Contrary to what the movies make people think, all romance doesn't have to be huge gestures or pronouncements. Running a bath and making a meal are totally romantic!

    LOL, but at least he still tries to surprise you, Kiera!! It's the thought that counts, right?
