What romance really is.

I think a lot of people don’t understand what real romance is. Anyone can buy flowers, candy and jewelry. 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 or call 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; telling her she’s beautiful. It’s putting your favorite show on pause so she can tell you about her day, and laughing at his jokes, 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 gestures.

  2. I will be missing you romantic angel…romantic soul.

  3. I just came across this in my FB memories! LOL, this is the kind of thinking that keeps the Hallmark movie channel in business! Or keeps Lucy mooning after indifferent Schoeder in the Peanuts comic! Ah, romance! L’amour, l’amour! Good luck with that!
