    I Barely Remember Romance

    I remember all those too. If my wife and I say 50 words to each other now, that's a lot. She may spend 4 hours in chat in the morning and a few phone calls in the evening and then announce that she's tired and goes to bed. I also remember when I was on the other end of those...

    Is Romance Dead?

    It seems like romance is no longer in the 21st century. Where did all the romance of poetry and men opening doors for women gone. I know that today's woman is independent and equal, but we are still emotional creatures. Heck, I would love to swooned and have flowers every once in...

    Is It Possible To Conceal Routine With Romance?

    I wonder about it very constantly... I have been married for almost 7 years now, and although I am happy in my marriage, the whole area of romance and fantasy has vanished along this time. We have a reliable relationshiop (which for me is extremely important) and we are real...

    Defined:

    I haven't felt romance in my marriage since we were first married.  It made me think - what is romance.  I define it as a feeling that stems from gestures indicating that we are exclusively special to each other.   I try to express gestures that woud convey...

    Date With Me?

    Okay so this is crazy to ask... very crazy to ask.. but a bit of background first. A long time ago, in a freshman's girl's room lounging upon the pink and purple frilly comforter were three girls. All from different backgrounds, one with her parents divorced and one with a huge...

    21.

    I may only be 21 but that doesn't mean I don't know what romance is. I want someone to look at me once & not automatically think about sex. To look me in my eyes like I'm the only woman one earth & theres nobody else you'd rather be with. Is that too much to ask for.?.

    A Long Line Of Love

    I think people are too busy today to maintain romance or to care about their relationships. Jobs, careers, sports, kids, alcohol..whatever the thing is that is taking up too much time and too many mental resources, romance seems to last no longer than the courtship. What a...

    Dull Marriage

    No more hugging and kissing. Just a peck on the cheek. No cuddling , just occasional intercourse. How should one rekindle the fire?

    Romance

    Keep in mind the gestalt of romance has very little to do with loving someone, and even less to do with acts of tenderness. It’s not a love story, nor an overcomplicated soap opera of whom-got-with-whom. A good romance is defined by a passionate desire. A want of something so...

    Was It Ever Really There?

    I've had a boy buy me flowers once. I went out to dinner and everything but I like more creative things, and I've never really gotten it. I had to show my boyfriend (who is now an ex) what Romance was to me. He was so... uptight? I guess, and romance was way too much effort. Is...

    When I see married couples celebrating their anniversaries or when someone is engaged or during a wedding or when I see two lovers holding hands or kissing or hugging or when I see a love scene in a romantic, love story movie or when I hear a love song.
