9 Old Fashioned Romantic Gestures Modern Girls Miss ...

Old fashioned romantic gestures aren't completely dead, but they sure are hard to find.

We’ve come a long way baby. Women have the best status in relationships than ever before. We are strong and confident and the sexual revolution gave us greater freedoms than our poor downtrodden, suppressed ancestors. However, this narrowing of the gap has also lead to us losing some of the traditional factors of relationships - the romance, the chivalry – the things our grandmothers might have referred to as courtship. I think there are old fashioned romantic gestures that modern girls miss and these are some of them.

Love Letters

text, hand, writing, finger, font, These days we have to settle for text messages and Tinder, but way back when, if a guy or girl wanted to share their true feelings, then they would get their best stationery out and pour all of their love in a sweet letter. A tender, poetic letter is so much better than an abbreviated text message filled with cheeky emojis - there is no romance in a cartoon eggplant! Take it back to old fashioned romantic gestures and send a love letter. It feels great to give and receive!


Eating in

black, photograph, black and white, monochrome photography, photography, Nowadays most dates tend to take place at a restaurant, and we seem to have forgotten the simple pleasure that cooking a meal at home from scratch can bring. Sure, it’s one thing to treat your partner and splash some cash at the local steakhouse, but it shows another level of commitment and romance if you prepare a delicious meal with your own hands. Low lighting, music, candles, great food, you get the picture!


Voice Connection

hair, human hair color, blond, hairstyle, head, I cannot tell you how many dates are ruined by cell phones and other devices these days. As soon as there is a lull in conversation, people are straight on their phones checking social media to pass the time. Take it back to the olden days by both agreeing to not use technology for an entire date or day. You will find that your personal connection gets so much stronger when you block the rest of the world out and ignore intrusive technology.



interaction, ceremony, girl, event, love, Let’s be real, we’re glad that some of the more chauvinistic elements of chivalry are gone, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t want to be treated like a princess from time to time! Old school gestures like holding the door open, pulling a chair back, kissing a hand and walking arm in arm are all lovely things, and they should be introduced back into modern dating in a big way!


Chivalry is an ancient code of conduct that promoted the ideal of courtly love and respect between men and women. The traditional elements of chivalry included honor, courage, courtesy, and respect. In modern times, chivalry often involves a man performing acts of kindness and courtliness to show respect for a woman. Examples of chivalry in modern relationships include holding the door open for a woman, pulling out her chair, offering her a coat in cold weather, and walking arm in arm. Chivalry is also often seen in the way a man treats a woman in public, such as offering her his arm while walking or standing up when she enters the room. By displaying chivalry, a man is showing his respect and admiration for a woman, which can be a very romantic gesture.


Handmade Gifts

finger, product, It’s all too easy nowadays to pick up any kind of gift you want at the nearest store. Of course, receiving any kind of present from a loved one is something that you should be thankful for, but there is something extra cute and special about handmade gifts. Even if its just a mixtape or mix CD like in the 80s and 90s, it’s still something that shows time and effort.

Famous Quotes

Men in general judge more from appearances than from reality. All men have eyes, but few have the gift of penetration.

Niccolò Machiavelli


film, darkness, midnight, Nobody goes out to a dance anymore! Most clubs play music that you generally just shake and gyrate to, but it can not be underestimated how great doing a proper couples dance with your partner can feel. There is a reason why so many people love Dancing With The Stars!


Song Writing

pink, girl, communication, conversation, public relations, What happened to the good old days when if a guy had fallen for a girl, he’d run straight to his room and start penning a love song? They’re not always great. In fact, most of the time they are pretty terrible, but who doesn’t want to be able to say that once upon a time they were the inspiration for a romantic ballad!? And if your partner is not musical, there could always be a poem recital as an alternative.



flower, flower arranging, floristry, event, romance, Why does it have to be Valentine’s Day or your birthday for you to receive flowers. Did you receive a corsage from your prom date? We love flowers and even just a small bunch grabbed from the corner store will make us smile and be happy. When was the last time your partner gave you flowers?


Flowers are a timeless symbol of love, appreciation, and admiration. They can be used to express a variety of emotions, from joy and happiness to sympathy and sorrow. In the past, giving flowers was a traditional way to show affection and appreciation. A man would often give a bouquet of flowers to a woman as a sign of his admiration or to express his love. In addition to being a romantic gesture, flowers have also been used to mark special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays. Today, flowers are a popular gift for any occasion, from birthdays to anniversaries and even just to say “I’m thinking of you.” Whether they’re given as a surprise or a token of appreciation, flowers are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face.


Being Respectful

white, photograph, black, person, black and white, Its sad but true that a lot of dating connections these days tend to go too fast and burn out too quickly. In order to prolong your romance, something that absolutely must be upheld is respect. Respect for love, respect for one another, and respect for the rules that you have both laid down.
