Romantic Home Dates When You Are Both Busy

Romantic Home DatesRelationships are not as happy as the montage of sweet and endearing moments you saw in movies. Most of the time is spent on work or school that you only spend so little time together. Yes, that is the reality of this life. But, the relationship doesn’t have to be boring and monotonous. Here are romantic date night ideas you may prepare at home if you are the busy bee couple.

Prepare their favorite food

Create a banquet of their favorite food. You can choose two courses with appetizer and dessert. For the years of being were together, you definitely learn a thing or two of their favorite things. So, choose one or two that will appeal to the taste buds of your partner. You can top it off with a fancy wine from the liquor store a few blocks from home. Finish this off through serving it in a cheesy restaurant-styled table arrangement. Can you imagine the fun (or disaster) while making this surprise dinner?

Recreate the first date

Step-up the surprise by recreating your first date. You can wear that shirt or dress you wore on the first date. You can spout few cheesy lines that you remember stuttering during that date, and have a good laugh about it. The night may not end up successfully in replaying the first date, but it will make you realize how far you have come as a couple. This will remind you why you chose to be together in the first place.

Foam bath with flower petals

After that delicious dinner, you and your partner can have a relaxing bath. Buy fragrant blossoms from their favorite flower shop. You should pick out the petals of the blooms and filing the tub with it. Don’t forget the soap and oil to truly pamper yourselves. Who needs movie-slash-cuddling when you can unwind with aromatherapy? This is definitely a new way to step up your dating game.

Homemade camp

The night could never end more beautiful with a homemade fort. As a child, you may enjoy creating forts with blankets and chairs around the living room. So, bring out a child in you and transform the bedroom into a camping tent. Complete this set-up with scented candles and spread the extra petals on the bed. How romantic can it be?

There is no need to do lavish and extravagant things to express your love for your significant other. The fun comes with simple and sincere things.


Decoded, She Really Meant What She Said

DecodedWomen are complicated creatures. Women sometimes don’t understand other women, and they are of the same species. How much more difficult it could be for men to understand women then?

Let me help you decode some mind-boggling statements women often say.


This may mean Yes and No.

The key to knowing what she said may be hidden below the deepest parts of the ocean. But, take clues from past conversations. Pay attention to instances when she has said yes, but what she really means was no.


“Okay, okay” and “No, it’s not okay.”

No, it is not the sweet “Okay” shared between Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace. As decisive as she is, she may say okay when it is not. Like her Yes, you should look into her eyes and see for yourself if it really means it.

“It’s fine.”

No, it is not, most of the times.

There are times when she may be under the weather, and she doesn’t want to talk about what made her upset. So she says that it is fine. What it really means is that it is not fine. This is especially true when she got into a fight with you or with another person.

“Have fun.”

No, don’t go unless she approves it.

Can you recall the time when she said to have fun when you went out with your buddies? You find her all furious upon arriving home because you “left” her alone. She is very confusing, right?

“In a minute, babe.”

This means 30 minutes or more. It depends.

You might want to be comfortable on the sofa when she says she will be ready in a minute. Patience, boy. It will be worth it once she’s done.

“How was your day?”

It means how are you?

This is a sincere question because she cares for you. She is here to celebrate and even mope or cheer you up.

“I have nothing to wear.”

What she wants to say is “I want new ones.”

It means that she has already worn all her clothes and the others are rubbish. Sometimes, she might want to buy new ones.

“You know, I love it when… “

You better do it more often.

You might have done something that she finds nice. So, she wants you to do it more.

We should compromise, don’t you think?”

There are no compromises here.

You should follow what she wants. She is not a spoiled girl. You can talk and let her understand why you should compromise and not just go through with what she wants. Make her see the light.

“No, Really. You don’t have to get me anything”

She means “I really want you to get me that.” She is not after the present itself, but, the thought of you getting her something special.

What Women Secretly (or Openly) Love About Their Men

What Women SecretlyCalm yourselves down! This is not about women being submissive nor deprecating women’s capabilities. This is you celebrating another of God’s wonderful creatures, the male species. Let’s look at some of the things we secretly or openly love about the men in our lives.

Women can depend on them

Sure, women are strong and independent and we want to be treated with equality, yet we also enjoy that we have a man we can depend on. There are those times we are clueless and scared to do things. Our men came as the ‘knight in shining armor,’ who don’t really save us, but held our hands as we go through life’s difficulties. It is okay to admit our vulnerability to the men whom we trust.


They have this innate thing of being protective of you. Can you remember the times you swoon so hard to men to take care of their sisters? You suddenly see them having children with you, right? We are completely capable of looking after ourselves that we find it sweet if others exert time and effort to show they care. This is Mr. Right in front of you, so don’t let him go.

Gives fresh perspectives

Sometimes, we seek advice from our girl friends for new insights. So, we also ask our significant others for their opinion. The difference between lady friends and our men is that the latter has different views on things. Often times, I feel stupid for worrying too much when the problem is really not that complicated. Men are really from a different planet, but we still love them anyway.


We love men who can do their thing. We find it ‘hot’ even. So, women are awed by men are passionate about doing things whether it be their hobby, at school or at work. Seeing him work hard will make your heart jump for joy. Surely, this kind of men will be a good partner in making your own family. Admit it, you have thought of this at some point. This is even more admirable if they are passionate about our relationship, where they value you as a person and his partner. Love couldn’t get better than that.

Great listeners

Our men have this patience that women don’t have. Sharing stories with other women will sometimes end with judgemental notes. But, men don’t judge behind your back, they are likely to blow the truth on your face. Also, they don’t talk too much, they just listen (and grunt).
