Planning A Proposal? Anticipation = Romance

By guest blogger Lori Harris, Ring Center Specialist for Robbins Brothers

Over the years, I have planned hundreds of proposals. In many cases, I hear “If I do that, she will know something is up.” Or “If I send her flowers, she will know what’s about to happen.” For some reason, many men feel that the proposal needs to be “shocking” like jumping out of the bushes in full camouflage shouting MARRY ME!

Here’s the truth. We LOVE anticipation. Moments when opening the door and seeing rose petals scattered, or receiving a treasure map, hand-delivered to us at work with a red X that marks the spot of our first date, or the invitation to a “special night out” a day or two beforehand. These moments that you create, are the beginning of her story. The story she will tell for the rest of her life. Make a smart choice here gentlemen. If I told you that you earn “brownie points” every time she tells that story (forever) wouldn’t you want to make it amazing? Trust me, you do.

Discover the Ideal Meal to Make Your Man

By guest blogger Natasha Burton

We all know that the way to man’s heart is through his stomach—or at least, that’s what the oft-quoted phrase tells us. If you’re wanting to make your guy feel extra special (hey, why not pamper him for a change, right?), you may want to consider making him an unforgettable meal.

To help you get started on deciding what to whip up, here are some questions that will assist you in determining what dish(es) would be ideal for your man. Happy cooking!

1. Does he appreciate home cooking or would he be completely happy with take-out?
2. Is he more of a steak-and-potatoes sort of man or is he okay with eating vegetarian?
3. Does he prefer variety (an assortment of foods for dinner) or consistency (one thing to dine on)?
4. Is he more of a savory or sweet guy?
5. Does he like dessert or would he prefer a more filling meal?
6. Are there any must-haves he likes at dinner (salad, bread, or some kind of carb)?
7. What’s his favorite place to travel to or country he’s visited?
8. Does he have a favorite dish at a restaurant you go to often that you could recreate at home?
9. Does he have a favorite general cuisine?
10. Does his family have a special recipe from his childhood you could make for him?

Now that your creative culinary juices are flowing, check out some popular cooking pinners on Pinterest like What’s Gabby Cooking and 101 Cooking for Two—they’ll help you narrow down exactly what menu to serve.
