Inspired by 1000 Awesome Things, I will be giving a little dating twist on it, and present you with the first installment of Awesome Things that a significant other, a crush, a flirtation, or just a cute boy will do.
|1. Coffee in bed on the weekend
I am not a morning person. I am actually quite grumpy in the morning, and a friend put it best when he said “no teasing before breakfast”. One of my favourite things is when a boy sneaks out while I am still sleeping, only to come back with my favourite Americano, black with a wee bit of sugar in the raw. The delicious smell would always wake me up, and I am instantly happy and not grumpy Breanna.
|2. Sneaking to pay the bill
I already mentioned this one in my First Date Faux Pas post, but this is so clever, and wins so many brownie points. I’ve seen this done in a few ways: they excused themselves to go to what I think is the bathroom, and pay the bill. Or, if I go, they take care of it then. Either way, huge points.
|3. Squeezing me tighter when a cute girl walks by
You don’t need to say anything, but just acknowledging that you know I’m here, and that you are making it clear that you are unavailable.
|4. Squeezing me tighter when a cute boy walks by
It’s ok, you can feel intimidated. I understand. I want them to know I like you, too.
|5. Look Back
Whether it is after a fight, or walking past a cute boy on the street, as they are walking away, they will look over their shoulder just that one time to see if you are still watching. I am, always.
|6. Forehead Kissing
A small kiss on the forehead is a pretty awesome thing. Extra points if you are gently grabbing the side of my face to do so.
|7. Not Quite Holding My Hand
Your fingers slightly touch mine, but you are too nervous to actually go for the entire thing. It tickles for a second, and then your hand is gone.
You notice I might be getting low on my drink, or my beer, and you hand me a new one without even asking if I needed one.
|9. Putting on my Coat
It’s always awkward (are my arms really long or something?), but chivalry is not dead, and nothing is more awesome than a man who was raised right.
|10. Opening the door for me
It is such a simple thing, but what I said above about chivalry applies here. It’s romantic, polite, and awesome. As I pass through the door, and your hand is on the small of my back? I get chills. Thank you.
