What "boring romantic" things does your SO do for you?
My husband has gradually taken over all household chores. When I told him that I could still do some, he said " You don't need anymore on your plate. I'll take care of it." A couple of my managers are making life miserable for me, so he tries to help me relax and feel loved whenever he can.
My grandpa has done the dishes every night for my grandmother since they were newlyweds. Neither my mom nor my aunt and uncles were allowed to do the dishes. Even when all us grandkids would visit, we have to do chores but we got yelled at for touching the dishes.
