Can you go overboard with Romance?

Recently, I had a hotel worker tell me that he thought one of our clients was going a little overboard in making his girlfriend feel special. In one day, he took her horseback riding, on a picnic, for a beach bonfire (where he proposed) and then back to the romantic hotel (which was simply and elegantly decorated with rose petals, candles etc..). Can you do too much to impress a girl? What do you think?

In the illustration above, his girlfriend (now fiance) loved the extra special attention. Of course, it is always going to depend on the woman and on the amount of time you have been together. If you are out on a first date and try to "wow" her with a day full of romance, you more than likely will scare her off.

Would You Like to Get Engaged....and Married...On the Same Day?

Eloping has become more popular these days. After all, who has the money to spend ten or twenty thousand or more on a marriage (an article today cited an NBA basketball star spending $2 Million for his wedding..and he called it off!). If we could do it all over again, my wife and I would have eloped...or at least had a smaller ceremony.

So here's the deal. We are looking for a guy who would be willing to propose - and get married - on the same day. Propose in the morning - get married that same early evening. In California, this is perfectly legal as there is no waiting period and no blood test are necessary.

Just give us a shout by commenting below or email us at and we will get back to you with the details. Your proposal that we coordinate for you will be completely free. The ceremony will be highly discounted to include the officiant, flowers, ceremony decoration and a wedding photographer. What a Vegas thing to do (without the smoke, Elvis impersonators, one-armed bandits).

Even Romance Can Survive A Recession

You've heard it before a million times. Now, if you only had a dollar for every time someone said, "This is the worst economic time since the Great Depression." Ugh.

Romance cannot be killed by this harsh financial situation. Why? Because you don't have to spend a mint to remind the person you love (or really like) how you feel about them. It can be as simple as a kind gesture. An unexpected hug or a kiss. Wildflowers picked from a field. You get my drift.

Of course, we operate a site that sells romantic gifts -- albeit inexpensive ones. But our core concept that developed what we do is all about using creativity and a little thought to make yourself a true romantic. It doesn't have to be hard.

In the interest of saving money, we have this special offer. Email us ( or use the comments box below, to let us know why you think you are a "romantic." All you need to do is to participate and we'll send you a discount certificate good for 10% off of your next order. Easy - right?

Just remember to put in some effort when it comes to being romantic. A little thought goes a long, long way.
