As some of you may know, I am a true hopeless romantic and I would like us to talk about romance today. For a lot of people romance is associated with expensive gifts, flowers and grand gestures, which is true these things are part of romance but there is more to it than meets the eye.
Romance is also about being able to express your feelings without making any grand gestures, without posting your photos on social media and by simply knowing how the other person feels just by looking into their eyes. It is about holding hands when you take a walk and about putting your loved one's comfort before yours. It is about not being afraid to be yourself with the person you love and to be authentic with each other.
Today, we have lost some of this notion of romance. Social Media has created a certain standard that couples should follow and has put some pressure on the couples to behave in a certain way. We have now focused our attention to the stereotypical criteria of romance: does he pay for you on a date? or does he buy you flowers or chocolates? But in the nutshell these are things that we can talk about with our friends because not many people can talk openly about their feelings and open their heart to someone and much easier to talk about clichés.
