Romance – what a huge word with more meanings than I can fit in one short blog. What romance is to you may depend on your age, sex, life experiences, imagination and probably even your I.Q., to name a few variables. No two people would totally agree. And the widest chasm will be between men and women.
Nobody will ever win the battle of the sexes. There's too much fraternizing with the enemy.-- Henry Kissinger
In our romance stories, heroes know all the right words to say. They’re strong, yet fragile and certainly in tune to foreplay. And I don’t mean the physical kind, although they’re over achievers there, too. True foreplay starts hours or weeks ahead of time and melts a woman at his feet. Women understand sex and romance are not necessarily synonymous.
I'm always looking for meaningful one night stands.
-- Dudley Moore
As we mature, our view of romance may not change but the gestures that send our hearts soaring may. Flowers gave me flutters as a girl; a single compliment warms me now.
An archeologist is the best husband any woman can have; the older she gets, the more interested he is in her.
-- Agatha Christie
So here’s to romance in all its many forms. Whatever the word means to you, whatever gesture sets the butterflies fluttering, whatever glance sends your heart soaring and whatever caress prickles your flesh with goose bumps – it’s all good.
Sex without love is an empty experience, but as empty experiences go, it's one of the best.
-- Woody Allen
