When I was with my previous girlfriend, it was lashing rain in town. We were at the spire meeting up. She was wearing slip on shoes and upon crossing the road she lost one of her shoes and couldn't go back for it due to oncoming traffic. A car ran over it and it went flying down the road.

I carried her to Penney's to buy her some new shoes.

From a girls perspective

Cook dinner (and do the dishes etc after)
Buy her something you know she wants, a CD that's just come out, a book, something small that says you were thinking about her
Change the bedclothes. Seriously! We all love a fresh bed and nothing better than going to bed being surprised by a nice fresh bed. Add a hot water bottle and clean jammies for bonus points.
Book a meal out in her favourite place to eat
Do something you aren't too fond of but she loves like hiring a chick flick on DVD or going to see a play


But if you're in trouble cos you've done or said something stupid - the best thing you can do is apologise! Anything else just looks crafty!

In my experience its the simple thoughtful stuff that means more than big showy bouqets of flowers or fancy restaurants, not that those dont go down well either but its the little things that matter.

mix tape / CD is an auld reliable

Dated a girl in Dalkey who lived opposite some posh seafood restaurant, was always looking at the menu n checking out who went in n all that.... one day took her there for dinner so she could see it from the inside

cooking dinner, etc is what I'd do anyway

Take her somewhere nice for the weekend :-)
Or even just give her an amazing head massage (or feet, back, whichever her ladyship commands )

If you can remember them, then so are you

Probably would be uploading mp3s to her mp3 player now....... just doesn't have same notion that any effort was put into it tho

/Being an auld one, I'd at least burn the CD from the mp3s (and she'd rip them to her player! )

Ignored weather warnings, dismissed good judgement and common sense and set off on a late-night three hour motoring expedition on deserted roads through heavy snow in a freezing car of very dubious mechanical integrity...

Just to keep a promise...

I flew to Italy on an impulse to be with my bf. It definitely took our relationship to another level.

My husband often sends me one line texts me saying lovely things about me. I really like that.

Plus, it's quick and doesn't cost so it's an easy one to pick up on.

I cant imagine your husband was too happy when you flew to Italy to see your bf

i've done a couple of successful things ,

booked an all expenses trip to NYC , handed her the tickets over dinner.
went to dubai (stayed in the oasis Baech hotel), but while there i book us a night in the Burj Al Arab 7star hotel , (its unbelieveable luxury)

i'm the cook of the house , but on a random nights , I'd just cook up a an absolute feast 3 course meal all the trimmings plus her fav wine.

had flowers delivered to her at work for no particular reason , she looked that.

things like that , other things , just if your out doing the shopping , just get her fav bar of chocolate and a DVD.

I asked her did she want something from the shop and she said a surprise. I got a kinder surprise for her in the shop and left it on her pillow. Bit silly and a tiny gesture but I got a lot of sex from doing that.
