What is romance?

Most of us (if not all) have grown up to think of romance as candlelight/moonlight, champagne, slow music etc etc.

Romance is so much different and so much more than just this. And that’s why I say that romance is always imperfect. It can’t really be defined and it’s different for each of us. So if the definition of romance is different for me and my partner (which will surely be the case), how does the question of a perfect romance come up at all.

The monsters of Television and Movies have brainwashed us to think that all couples can have nothing more perfect than than a candlelight dinner with soft music at a classy restaurant or a barefoot walk at a moonlit beach. With all due respect to all the ‘classic’ love stories and movies, this is just not the case in real life.

Personally, for me, one way of being romantic is sitting in the arms of my lover (common term : boyfriend), and talking something fruitful to him (instead of the ‘sweet nothings’, we all hear so often mentioned in stories, serials, movies).

Romance is a portrayal of love. And if we have been successfully unsuccessful in defining love, then let’s not try and define romance. Having said that, if romance had to be broadly put in words, it would be to accept each other completely, even when they are not living by our standards of life, love etc.

So go ahead people, be romantic in your own special way. And take out a little time for your partner today, sharing your imperfect romance.  And that partner need not be only your lover, it might be even your pet, sibling. But I guess I’ll elaborate on that some other day.

Take care readers.
