I start asking my girlfriends: What’s romantic to you? What is your idea of romance?
Three out of three answered: spontaneity.
My girlfriend in Yellowknife answered: “If he just called up in the middle of the day and said: Dress warmly. I’m taking you out. And then if he came and picked me up on a skidoo and we went ice fishing all afternoon. That would be romantic.
My cousin Nik says: A picnic after a hike out at the lake. Just walking and talking and spending time together with the forethought of a picnic. That’ll get you some nookey.
Mine? I don’t necessarily have anything specifically romantic in mind. But I know some personal thought, a bit of effort, and witty banter go a long, long way.
Oh. Wait..that’s two plus me. I guess I’ll have to keep asking. I’m certainly going to ask the boys.
