"I have a
husband otherwise but
he is not romantic. I have
nothing else to complain about but every time I hear about
romantic boyfriends and husbands of my friends or
watch movies, somewhere in my heart, I feel bad. I
have given hints to him but nothing has changed. I

same in the
romantic gifts for him. Yeah, it is
nice to buy someone a thesaurus if he likes to
do crossword puzzles but when you buy a
romantic music collection, you are also
sending another message.
positively to things that he does for you.
When he is providing for you and stands there
for you in time of need, appreciate him.
Eventually, he will understand your emotions
and will respond.
