Do You Know What Romance Is?

Romance is the spice of life. It’s not difficult to visualize how dull and boring life would be without romance. Have you ever paused to wonder what it is that brings enthusiasm in life? Romance is that elixir that makes you vibrant, vivacious, and full of vitality. Everyone has their own idea of romance and romantic ideas; what are your ideas of romance?

In the lines by Shirley Bassey, “I’d like to run away from you, but if you didn’t come, and find me … I would die,” the essence of love and romance has been beautifully depicted. Romance is something that gives comforting touch to one’s heart. Someone who’s sensitive about his or her beloved’s needs is romantic. Just being a hard-core romantic and not demonstrating your love openly is so unromantic. You need to put other work aside and show to your sweetheart that you care for him or her. The idea of romance can be as simple as a peck on a cheek, a warm hug, or just uttering those three miraculous words, “I love you.” These gestures appear romantic when your beloved is least expecting them, otherwise they are the boring, hackneyed way of saying that you care. Novel romantic ideas are like the “life and blood” of any romantic relationship.

For some people, romance means the spirit of adventure, a sense of anticipation of the unexpected, a view of exciting spectacles at every bend of the road. For many others romance involves the mysterious and the unknown. Like “magic casements opening on the foam of perilous seas,” as Keats would put it. Romance sweeps in all the treasured experiences from the mysterious to the magical and the miraculous. Yet for most of us, romance is an expression of love. When we talk of romantic ideas, we refer to all the little things that can keep the flame of love burning bright in our hearts.

We all know that it isn’t enough to love a person; it is equally important to express our love in a relationship. Love without expression is as good as not there. You need to show your love, not only in words but also in gestures that speak louder than words. You have to devise novel ways of letting your love know how much you care. You have to find new ideas to express your love every day, if not every moment. Thinking of novel ways of saying “I love you” is what romantic ideas are all about.
