Get The Idea

I hate having to be the voice of reason, but here goes... you have to do nice things.
okay, you knew that, but you don’t think about the nice things, and maybe that could be part of the solution.
You think, “I can take a girl out to dinner,” but have you ever cleaned up the living room so you could have dinner there, and it would seem like a restaurant?
You could give her flowers, but if it’s near Valentine’s Day, don’t bother, but give them on a weekday when she doesn’t expect it, and tell her you got them for her because you thought of her and you thought she deserved them.
Well, there are other examples, but I won’t get into them now. I think you get the idea.
