ROMANCE IS NOT DEAD. Thank goodness for that!

I posted on our Facebook page recently, a lovely romantic tale about a rickshaw driver in London on New Year’s Eve and how his kind act brought two strangers together.

With Valentines Day fast approaching love is everywhere and romance is thankfully very much alive and kicking.   It was certainly in the air before Christmas with Prince Harry’s announcement of his engagement.  That look of adoration and love for Meghan as he introduced her  to the world surely must have warmed the hearts of even the most cynical.

I honestly believe that we all have the capacity for romance.   Often people get squeamish over romantic gestures but they don’t have to be cheesy, complicated or extravagant.   Real romance isn’t manufactured.  It’s very individual but once you’ve experienced it you won’t forget it. It’s a powerful force that makes you feel connected to someone in a deeper way.  It’s the gestures, both big and small, that make you feel especially touched and cherished by your partner.  Romance is what takes your relationship past friendship.

It’s showing the person you love that you’re thinking about them.  It shouldn’t feel forced.  There are no limits.  It can be shown by a handwritten note, by going for a walk, or even by making someone a sandwich.  Romance is simple, sweet and innocent that reminds your partner why they fell in love with you in the first place.

Romance is so not dead.   We just have to remember to be romantic.
