I was in the process of telling a friend a dream I had, and the concept of romance came up… My claim was that, I am the romantic one because I had the dream. My friend believes that the man in the dream, is the romantic one because HE was romancing ME.
This debate caused me to ask the question, “What IS romance?”
When I decided to research this I found several answers. But the simplest stood out.
Dictionary Definition: (Noun) A feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.
I found this concept interesting… Must one really be in love to be romanced? I think not. I mean you can be swept away by someone you don’t love, can’t you? Or does romance just create a false sense of love? A false hope for love?
I am not sure, but what I do know is that I want it. I want the guy that surprises me with flowers in the middle of the day. I want the cheesey kiss in the rain, or at sunset, after looking into each others eyes….
What ever romance is, I want it.
