    I don't know about every other woman

    but I miss romance. BAD! I'm not talking about being brought expensive flowers, expensive trinkets or jewelry, or having money spent of any kind really. I mean that's all nice and yes it's great sometimes to know your man feels you're worthy of him spending his hard earned money...

    Could You Bank a Little Romance?

    Back in college he was totally head over heals for me.  So much so, that it sometimes was too much.  I so wish we could have banked some of that infatuation for now.   How I wish . . . Romance is gone, baby.  I see why people cheat.  I do.  I...

    I'm not romantic at all,

    you won't notice me if I fall. After all, I blew my chances on love, then you call. "How are you doing" I hear the joy in your voice and it fills my sorrows. As we watched a petal from this rose fall effortlessly. We hold hands and walk as lovers pretend to be. Happily evading...

    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...

    I Am Angry

    I am sick and tired of guys treating women like they are some piece of meat. Whatever happened to the time when guys actually pursued girls! Why this obsession on the physical? There is nothing sacred anymore. GRRRR! Romance is dead when people treat people like objects. What...

    I Have Jealously Guarded All Things Surrounding Her..

    I have jealously guarded all things surrounding her, I find it difficult to even begin to crack the lid off my secrets before others. I don't really want to share anything and this is compounded by the fact she is an intensely private person by nature. In a way, it's something we...

    The Girl From Florida

    This story is about a girl I met at the portofino bay hotel, in late July of 2005.  Well...to say I "met" her may be pushing the truth a little.  Infact, the romance I am talking about here is the type of romance that no one ever know's truthfully if it was ever...

    A Long Line Of Love

    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.?.

    who loves me. I wish either people who claim they want me would behave 100% that way, or 100% shove off ! I want to be where I am needed, and love a woman who wants me!!

    It Feels Even Worse

    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.

    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...

    Dull Marriage

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