My fiancé works long days and comes home only to spend the evening working on the house.
I have a lot more time than him, but we still only get to spend a couple hours each night together before he’s got to go to bed. He also works part of the weekend and we never really get to do anything “fun.”
I enjoy doing things for him like having supper ready every night when he comes home, doing the dishes after we’re done, keeping everything clean and pleasant, taking out the garbage and lots of little things most people take for granted.
I think he really appreciates it and even though it’s not all that romantic, it gives him more time to work (or rest if he wishes). I think it really lets him know I care because I take care of some things that would take up more of his time. Sometimes we’re able to take a hot bath together or snuggle and talk before we go to bed. Even every day life can be romantic.
