One of the best ways to get someone you desire to be yours is to use your romantic words. The way you communicate with someone says a lot about who you are and what you’re going to be like as a significant other.
Meaning, you can be short, blunt, and not nice, or you can be sweet, kind, and romantic. Which one tends to get the ladies and guys? That’s right. Sweet, kind, and romantic almost always wins in this instance.

Now, this isn’t for the fellas only! Sure, women may be the better known gender for liking romantic words flying across their phone screens or whispered in their ear beside a roaring fire, but men like to be sweet-talked too. Although some might feel their manhood was at stake if anyone found out, they appreciate some romance from their ladies.
