Those grand gestures are all fine and good, but it's the little things that make us (and our heroines) fall in love with the hero.
To prove my point, I've borrowed examples from a couple movies I'm sure most of us have seen before:
|NEVER BEEN KISSED|
Jane and Kevin can barely stand each other, until one little song plays on the jukebox in a dive bar out in the middle of nowhere. Next thing you know, they're dancing on the bar and getting hot & steamy in the backseat of his car. Who knew "Benny & The Jets" karaoke could provide the spark for true love?
|How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days|
Bottom line, it's all the little unique pieces of a man that make us fall in love with him. Don't forget to add those things into your stories. We tend to fall in love in fragments, our characters should too.
