My soon-to-be husband is Romantically Illiterate. He will do romantic things, as long as I spell out each step of the way. I found this book on Amazon.com and figured why not. I ordered it and when it came in I read it from cover to cover highlighting everything I found romantic. (this book is now covered with yellow highlighting.) I put a ribbon around the book and gave it to my honey as a "just because I love you gift". This has changed our relationship. It's Great!!! Now all he has to do is open the book, look for the yellow, and do it. He doesn't have to think about it and I can be pleasantly surprised with whatever he chooses. I even look at it for ideas for him. It's a one in a million book.

Please, do not ever "fill her glove compartment with Hershey's Kisses" - unless you live in the Arctic or "glove compartment s'mores" are a big turn-on for both of you.

The revised revised book should add "Detail Your Girlfriend's Car" right after that one.

Filled with dumb, expensive ideas, bad judgment and creepy desperation from "America's Romance Authority".
If that really is Godek's claim to fame, I think I've found the reason behind "America's Staggering Divorce Rate".

best of luck.

Amazon.com is such a pleasure to deal with. The representatives are courteous, helpful, and accomodating. I had the pleasure to experience this myself when I was returning this piece of trash. Mr. Godek came up with a dozen or two "o.k." (but nothing extraorinary) ideas and filled up the rest of the space with quintessential garbage. My fellow Amazon customer, I wish you all the best because, like me, you are on the path to becoming a true romantic for the woman you love. That's very noble, and I couldn't respect that more. That's why I say to thee: DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY AND NERVE CELLS! This book is not the one you need. Allow me to recommend another one: "How to Romance the Woman You Love - The Way She Wants You To." By Lucy Sanna and Kathy Miller. The ISBN is 0761508708. Good luck.

16 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Lisa Shea HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 3, 2008
Format: Paperback
First off, it's important to realize this is a reference tome. You really don't sit down and read through the 1,001 suggestions one after another, like reading a novel! This book is nicely broken up into sections. If you need an idea for a romantic movie, you flip to that section. If it's ideas for a special night out, you go to that section. This is the perfect book to leave in the bathroom or by the bed, to skim through when you have a few minutes.

In any list this large, there are going to be a number of ideas that some poeple say "That's obvious! Why put it into a book!" However, I have many lists like this on my website and I can prove from experience that every item one person says "everybody knows that!" to - another person writes to say "that idea was brilliant!" It is the way of the world. Everybody has somthing to learn.

So, what do YOU stand to learn from this book? Every section will undoubtedly hold something new. There are tons of movie ideas. tons of song ideas for playlists. Tons of quotes for cards, sayings for toasts. Tons of websites to visit to buy flowers, chocolates, paintings, clothing, you name it. There are ideas to discuss with your romantic partner. Places for you to go. There are tons of ideas that cost money - but also tons of ideas that are completely free.

Do I find some of the ideas silly? Sure. One of the tips talks about a guy bringing his wife a cup of tea every night in bed - *whether she wants one or not* (italics theirs). That doesn't sound romantic to me, it sounds controlling!

Still, that was just one part of one tip. Unlike some books that count every single line as a separate tip, this one has a list of 128 items to know as "just one item".

My then boyfriend and I went to Barnes and Noble and found this book which we enjoyed reading together over some tea. After we finished we had to place the book back on the shelf. However, not too much later my boyfriend presented this book to me as a gift. The best part was that he went through and circled everything he liked and marked out those that he disliked. I did the same and returned it to him. He gave me his resume and cover letter trying to sell himself to me as he would an employer-an idea from the book. It was darling! Now we are engaged to be married and I know that this is something we will continue to enjoy over the years. It has definitely been a trigger for our own creative means of romance.

Format: Paperback
1,001 Ways To Be Romantic is a wonderful and imaginative 352 page compendium of ideas and things-to-do to enhance the romance in a relationship from new couples courting to seasoned marriage partners of many years. Ranging from singing silly songs on the answering machine, leaving erotic post-it-notes all over the house, and scented body lotion, to flirting shamelessly with your partner in public, dancing by yourselves in a candlelit living room, and reading aloud to each other before bed, the recommendations found throughout this ideal reference are fun, quirky, sexy, effective, and easy-to-do. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to instill romance in a new relationship or renewing the passions of a long-standing one.
