Romance - most of us would like more of it in our lives, married, dating, or not. Have you ever stopped to define it or think about it?

Romance: “a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.
“a quality or feeling of mystery, excitement, and remoteness from everyday life.” “to try to influence or curry favor with especially by lavishing personal attention, gifts, or flattery” - Merriam-Webster

Romance is a state of connection between two people that is brought about by thoughtful sentimental gestures that mean something to one or both parties; gestures that communicate care and understanding and love, as well as a desire to reach out and connect through the heart with a partner.

Show the person you love that you're thinking about them, that you would like them to slow down so you can connect with them, so you can share love again, and want to spend time together. 

Wonderful when thoughtfully planned, also good when spontaneously carried out, best when they come from your true heart. Take time to discover, pay attention to, and respond to what she likes. And be willing to experiment, try and fail - or succeed!

Here are 8 romantic gestures you can try soon! Comment below and let us know what you're favorite spontaneous acts of romance are.

  • stopping your partner for a slow dance in the living room while making dinner
  • a spontaneous picnic or trip somewhere special
  • preparing the bed for lovemaking
  • a handwritten note
  • a thoughtful, loving comment
  • just because flowers delivered to her at work
  • a walk – silently or with speech
  • plan a surprise date
What else causes both of you to slow down and connect with each other, or create a new spark of romance? It could be anything that is meaningful to both of you, simple or complex. And don't forget the mystery!

Romantic gestures are usually simple and sweet. They cause your partner to remember who you are, and why they fell in love with you in the first place.

“He loves romance! He's always doing something that makes me stop and remember he loves me.”
