I Want to Be Romanced

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 133 People

    In the years I've been dating,

    I've never been romanced. I will leave the guys to come up with ideas or see if they'll use their initiative but they don't, they are quite content with sitting and watching the telly... No cooking for me or breakfast in bed, no flowers. I apparently should just be satisfied...

    Who Doesn't?

    My initial thought (as the title indicates) was, "Who doesn't?"  Then I realized who: my wife.  She used to, but right now it seems she dislikes sex so much that the most innocent things (and sometimes not too innocent, but playful) make her feel "...

    Silly, Isn't It?

    I suppose it is a silly thing to wish for. Silly, greedy, childish, demanding, unreasonable... but I still think about it, and I still want it, and I feel bad for that in many ways. I've never been romanced, ever. It must be nice to be treasured in some impromptu way, however...

    I Do

    This may be the sappiest group I've joined yet.  It's true though, I would love to be romanced. Once upon a time, I thought all that mushy, sweet, syrupy, sticky stuff was for fools.  Now I'm joining the group.  I've been sad, cynical, exhausted, aloof.  I've...

    Just Once

    I'm not real high maintaince.  I don't require a man to dote on me day and night. I actually probably would have a hard time excepting that kind of love.  However, I am still a woman, and a damn good one at that! I don't mean that in a haughty way, I just respect...

    I Want To Romance Someone

    I have never been "romanced" before. I would define "romancing" as when one person creates a delightful experiance for another person that makes them feel appreciated, loved, valuable, and just very special to the other person. It must be done not for anything in return, but out...

    I'm a very romantic person in the perfect

    measure, not over the top but I show my gratitude and appreciation and like to romance whoever is worthy of me. I don't do it to get anything back. But it makes me upset that if they were appreciative as well they might actually reciprocate. Where's the romance? I deserve that...
