Tip #1: Pay Attention!

The first and foremost rule of romance is to pay meticulous attention to detail! Favorite color (Ha! Black! That one’s easy!), favorite author, favorite color other than black, favorite band, clothing/accessory sizes, special dates, likes, dislikes, etc.. this is what dating is all about! When going out to dinner, movie, club, with a date it is designed specifically to spend time together, engaged in a mutual activity and be able to explore one another through conversation and body language. Every time you hear your significant other say he or she likes something (or doesn't like something…you can use that info in a funny, sarcastic way) and then find a creative way to incorporate that into a gift, event, or occasion later. The attention, and especially the remembering of said detail is always appreciated...especially when the amount of time between is very vast. This principle is the essence behind the saying: "It's not the gift, it's the thought that counts."

This is a no-brainer. If you are not that skilled in the memory department, just jot down notes whenever possible…why do you all think I lug around that bible-looking notebook of mine?
