I think a lot of people don’t understand what real romance is.

I think a lot of people don’t understand what real romance is. Anyone can buy flowers and candy and jewelry, there’s no love in that. The truly romantic things in life are those little things you do every day to show you care, and that you’re thinking of them. It’s going out of your way to make them happy. The way you hold her hand when you know she’s scared, or you save the last piece of cake for him. The random text in the middle of the day, just to say “I love you” or “I miss you”. The way he stops to kiss you when he passes by. It’s dedicating her favorite song to her, and letting her eat your fries… and telling her she’s beautiful, even when she’s in her sweats.. with her hair in a ponytail and no makeup. It’s putting your favorite show on pause so she can tell you about her day, and laughing at his joke even the really lame ones. It’s slow dancing in the kitchen and kissing in the rain. Romance isn’t about buying, it’s about giving. True romance is in the gestures.

But I love watching her laugh or do ANYTHING she loves to do, so I enjoy the time we are together doing WHATEVER she chooses. We have been married 35 years.
