What does it mean to be romantic???

In my years of dating, one or two people have said am not the romantic type...and this always got me wondering, what exactly does it mean to be romantic? what excatly does it entail? Does it mean am not caring or loving or does it mean am selfish or I don't love that person? what exactly?? Can it truely be defined at all??....well am bored and I decided to research it up and blog about my enjoy and learn ok.

''Romance is a feeling of deep attachment and affection that goes beyond all known human bonds. Romance can not be easily defined but only experience.

In romantic love, a person feels inspired. In love nothing looks impossible. Love motivates one to great heights. To please one's romantic love, a lover can do anything. Some romantic lovers don't even care for their life in love. One wants to look good in one's lover's eyes and wants to win the love for ever. That motivates the romantic lovers.

Romance is an emotion of the heart, and it gives a new outlook to life.(am just wondering, isn't this love as well) It makes one feel good. It makes one feel in heaven. a person in romance needs nothing more than his/her beloved. That is romance!

Romance is the true identity of your love. It brings out your true self and helps you be a better lover, husband and partner. Romance is a celebration of the life you live as part of a couple. It springs naturally and originates from within your heart. It makes you do things that you possibly couldn't have imagined to do otherwise. It shows you who you are and reminds you of the role you play in a relationship. Romance is not responsibility but it is caring about your responsibilities towards your lover and partner. Romance is the appreciation of two people who are celebrating the lucky coincidence that they found each other.

However often in the daily rush and work load people tend to forget about romance and so we have brought for you a list of things that you can do to keep the flame of romance burning in your heart forever.''

Lets have a quick checklist, just for fun. At least it will make you available to comment on how far you have reached in your trial for being a die-hard romantic! We’ve broken it up into several segments for even better testing!

Well in my own little opinion....romance can't be exactly defined, every ones has their own ways of showing how much they love their partners, and aslong as this love is being showed, then what else really matters? it until you show up with a box of chocolates or bunch of flowers that shows how romantic you are?....what if its just some other way round you show your love?

But I sort of like the checklist sha.....what do you think?
