    I sent this to a friend via email, but decided I'd be interested in feedback from a broader sample of people:

    romantic in my opinion is when ya share your interest with the opposite sex..if ya get rejected...well find another who likes you for what you do rather than how much money ya can attribute to her bank account!

    maybe a little off base or track...but just my experience!

    Romantic is a touch. A look. A squeeze of the shoulder when you walk by them.

    Flowers, kidnapping, dinner...that's all good.

    But true romance.....just "being."

    Feeling each other. Aching for each other's touch; each other's words.

    Knowing that the other person misses you as much as you miss them.

    Getting excited when you see on the caller I.D. that it is them.

    Those butterflies in your stomach when you were in High School before you asked "the one" to the dance.

    Being consumed by desire for that person.

    When all you want to do is breathe the same air as they do.

    :wank:

    :D

    76% ?? More like 96%.

    :D


    I must confess, you've blended 'passionate/in-love' with Romance...while linked, they aren't always the same. Id Est, I can be romantic without having anyone else there...no :wank: jokes - just saying I 'see' and 'feel' romance, even though I don't have many sources from which to draw inspiration.

    Romance can take many forms, as Manu said, unexpected trips, gifts are nice.

    Nicer still, when someone is really glad you are there. When someone is there when you have a burden to share. When someone calls just to hear you. Unexpected compliments.

    All work.

    Romantic: When my husband calls me from work just to tell me he loves me. And the sweet things he writes at the bottom of a birthday or Mother's Day card. Written words of love are about as romantic as it gets for me.

    I have a soft spot for Bermuda, and a surprise trip there would be wonderful. It is innately romantic to me.
