It seems that Valentine's Day is the day most guys start thinking about romance, and February 15th is the day they stop. I think that some guys think romance involves big things. Things like planning, traveling and shopping. That's why they don't think about it every day. It's complicated, and we're simple people. I have this theory that if guys realized it was the little things, then we'd be much more romantic in the eyes of the girls  we love.

I read this good article at romantic-tips.com that had some good simple ideas that guys could easily do. They include things like calling before you head home from work to see if there's anything you can pick up, or starting her car for her on a cold morning. And how about giving her a hug once in awhile, even if the Giants didn't just score a touchdown! Simple stuff, right guys? She'll love it, and it'll make you feel good, too.

Just a word of warning, though. These actions, while awesome and very romantic, do not count as Valentine's gifts. So you'll probably be shopping, planning or traveling pretty soon anyway!
