One of the things I dislike about being single and unattached is the lack of romance. Guys can be very light on the romance in the beginning! Especially when they are trying to figure out if you aren’t a gold digger, floozie, or some awful puppy-kicking person.
When the romantic gestures finally arrive, in whatever shape, form, or fashion, I’m ready for it. I don’t think romance is always like the romance novels or movie love kind of romance. I have always found that the little things you do or say can offer the biggest romantic returns.
My most romantic moments would probably not even measure high on anyone’s Romantic Richter scale. To me, however, I really felt something and was moved, and in some instances, shaken!
I always find it really interesting how differently men and women can view romance, though. So, let’s try a little experiment:
List at least five romantic things you want to do for the person you are dating now. If you aren’t seeing anyone, imagine what you would do if you met someone you felt really connected to.
Then list five romantic gestures that you would want done for you.
Ladies, let the men know what their romantic gesture would measure on the Romance Richter scale.
Guys, let us know the same. Do you think women have a hard time romancing you? Could it be that we just don’t know what romance is your book? Do you even need romance when you are dating?
Do you think that your romantic gestures would be well-received? Will the person be able to tell that it was a romantic gesture? Does it count if they don’t?
I am curious to see if we sometimes miss the small gestures of romance because we view romance so differently!
