I Love Old Fashioned Romance

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 417 People

    I don't like how it's called "old fashion" to

    be honest. I just see it as romance or the most purest forms of love being expressed. "Old fashion" contains a sense of self respect for each other and caring that is so innocent or thoughtful. Some say that the part of "chivalry" is sexist, but to me it's not. Sure I like...

    Romance Is In The Eye Of The Beholder.

    Romance means different things to each of us. The lucky few are those whose ideas match those of their lover. My idea of old fashioned romance consists of thoughtfulness and consideration for the other person. I would rather have a bouquet of flowers from the grocery store with...

    ~"Hello" was all I Needed~ --I think this is

    worth reading, I did not write this-- I saw you on the Manhattan-bound Brooklyn Q train. I was wearing a blue-striped t-shirt and a pair of maroon pants. You were wearing a vintage red skirt and a smart white blouse. We both wore glasses. I guess we still do. You got on at...

    My Idea Of A Romantiic Date

    Sometimes, I think I should have been born decades before I actually was. This becomes evident when one learns of a dream I have held for many years. I really want to go on an old-fashioned romantic date with a man who will treat me completely like a woman. This has nothing...

    I love and adore old fashioned romance.

    The anticipation of meeting a beautiful woman, not just any woman. A woman who gives you butterflies in your tummy . Every time you think of meeting her , you feel nervous, you feel shy, you feel tongue tied. These feeling are kept hidden in your heart . I ask myself, why do I...

    Boy meets girl. Classic dates (movie,

    dinner (maybe even making her dinner), things like that. No chivalry isn't dead.

    I Really Am

    I really am a huge fan of Old Fashioned Romance. The small gestures, the little things that make you're tummy go all crazy, the cuddling on a cold night, the dancing to Frank Sinatra songs! I don't believe you need lots of money and fancy stuff, or need to take each other on...

    and Roses Old fashioned romance to me is all about knowing your sweethearts love language and speaking to them in tones of love. For me this means communication and heartfelt gifts of love and inside jokes. I greatly enjoy being spoiled too. I like eating out in nice restaurants...

    I believe in respecting all women.

    Being polite and treating them like ladies . I will hold open a door or pull out a chair for any woman. I think flowers are a thoughtful gift. I have old fashioned ways and morals. I think it is always nice to be polite, online and offline. You should be the same person all the...

    A day in the park. Do you remember

    that day last summer? I'd looked at the Weather Zone Plus application on my phone to find out the sort of day we could expect. I woke up that morning and was filled with mixed emotions. I didn't want to slip up and make a fool of myself in front of this gorgeous woman. A woman...

    My Loving Gestures Don't Count!

    I'm interested to know what the masses think about my wife's viewpoint of a constant complaint she is bringing up. She is constantly griping about me not showing enough, in the little ways, that I love her. Whenever I try to point out little things that I do do, which usually...

    Peaceful More Simpler Times...

    I usually don't like historical romance novels at all, but a have a few movies I like that are kinda romantic, but I prefer a combination of adventure/romance movies. I can't watch movies that are JUST about romance. Examples like, I love "The Princess Bride" and the very first...

    I advocate that i am 21 going on 65.

    I have feelings and expectations of a romance not of my times. From what i gather, it's more like the 1920's or 1930's... With less suppression. Haha. I love an appropriately feminine girl that dresses modestly and has manners. (Bit of a foul mouth can be fun. Manners as in...

    Romance

    I like little things like a hug or holding hands. There is nothing better than knowing someone loves you, it's precious thing. I think things get too complicated. I could buy someone a rose, but I would rather draw them one lol. It's just me I guess

    The Littlest Things

    I don't need my boyfriend to buy me fancy things to show me he loves me. It's the little things he says and does. Like when he touches my face or looks deep into my eyes and says those three little words that mean soo much to me. And that sweeps me off my feet.
