Keeping the romance alive in a relationship takes work, but it’s also important to remember that romance isn’t always a grand gesture. For most people, it’s the little things that melt your heart and remind you why your partner is your favorite person in the whole world. Redditors asked the women of Reddit: "What romantic gestures completely melt your heart?" Here's a hint: It’s not dozens of long stem roses and lavish jewelry and trips. Here’s what women think romance is all about:

Reservations: It doesn’t have to be a fancy place, but making a reservation is basically telling your partner, "I planned this outing because I wanted to spend time with you and make sure nothing derails that plan."

Notes and cards ... just because: Leaving your loved one a note on a day that isn’t a holiday is one of the most thoughtful and easiest gestures. 

Making your coffee just right in the morning: When he takes out your favorite mug and puts in the right amount of milk and sugar, it is so simple, thoughtful and kind!

Listening: When you’ve been together for a while, it’s easy to stop listening. It’s such a simple thing to do and it means so much ... so why not do it?!
