What is Romance?

I'm sure it's different for each woman. What is it to you?

There are books on the subject. Basically they say it is the little things. Not the mandatory flowers or gifts on set occasions.

So what is it to you? Flowers just because; Happy Tuesday! A little note stuck in your pocket that you find in the middle of the day. Picking up a little something that reminds them of you and giving it to you out of the blue (where does that phrase come from anyway). Coming up behind you and giving you a little shoulder massage with a little kiss. Candle lit breakfast.

Tell me what you think?

Everything that you just said! To me, that is true romance when you do something just because you want to show how you feel and how much you care.

Romance = Just because. Remembering to keep the other person in your thoughts.

under the stars
We choose to write
you choose what you comprehend.
read twice and be nice
every key stroke... has a heart beat

All that and a bag of chips? I pinch on the butt from someone you want to pinch you.

6/25/2006 7:59 pm pretty much said it all. For isn't a dozen roses as much as one single rose given for a "just because" reason. It's the look that says I love you. Its leaning in to whisper how beautiful I am in a roomful of truly beautiful women! It's wonderful!

I do like the single rose thing. Quality not quantity.
Just because seems to be a theme here.

Everything you said. An easier way to sum it up... Romance is a person who goes out of their way somehow each and every day to make you feel wanted, needed, desired, and special. It can be as much as a gentle squeeze on the shoulder, a pat on the back from a friend or even a comment on a blog that interests you to let the person know you care what they have to say. Romance is in each and every little thing we do for everyone every day to make them feel like they are special to us! JMO

Everyone wants to feel special. That's a good way to put it.

Everything you just said. I also think it's important to be able to be demonstrative of affection in public - holding hands, kisses, etc. It really is the little things that make a difference.

I find it works both ways - men enjoy this as much as women - we all like to know were cared for and that somebody is willing to put forth the efforts regularly to show it.

I love cherry life savers - they are not sold at every store and my friend searched several stores to find me a roll. To me that was romantic. Like I said, it's the simple things. Little thoughtful acts go a long way.

PDA, you know that one? Public Displays of Affection.
Oh, oh, you about AMA? Alternate Means of Arousal. For those times when Aunt Flo is around and you're not down with penitration. Which brings up the subject of did you try it yet?

It seems that PDAs seem to go away as relationships get older.

Yes, that going out of the way thing is good. It goes along with the "hey, I saw this in my travels and I know you like it so I picked it up for you"

Both ways is nice. We all want to feel special. You're always remembering the man. That's nice.

" out of the blue"-----not gray skies---clear

a single white rose is the ultimate

and breakfast of course with or without candle

Don't worry, be Happy
