Really? Babysitting and taking out the garbage romantic? Whatever happened to an impromptu holiday in Greece, red roses and little I LOVE YOU notes tucked into your coat pocket?
And so, sufficiently chastened, I've come up with my own list of romantic:
- French champagne
- bubble bath for two
- a luxury cruise
- a holiday in a resort
- reading a book out loud to one another in bed
- a morning cup of coffee shared on the terrace
- sleeping in the spoon position
- the guy really going out of his way to please you...
- and really listening to you...
- preferably somewhere on a magical island where there is no work and no chores.
