Chivalry isn’t dead. It just looks a little different on the ranch.
It isn’t that farmers and ranchers aren’t romantic and sweet. They just express it in different ways. Flowers are a nice gift. A bale of hay or a new cow are better.
Going to a fancy restaurant has it’s place. Hopping in the old ranch pickup to check cows together, his hand in yours as he gives a gentle squeeze and whispers softly, “I’ll get the gate.” is the best date there could be.
Poetry is romantic, I guess. Sweet whispered words that send tingles down your spine and weaken the knees are different for different people. “No Honey, you drive the feed truck, I’ll break ice.” on a day with the wind howling and temps well below zero is the most beautiful poetry out there..
When it comes to ranch life romantic gestures take on a different form.
