I recently wrote an article on romantic destinations. It really made me think about my ideas about romance. When I was young, I used to spend afternoons reading romance novels, watching romantic black and white movies and listening to motown crooners proclaim their love. Needless to say, my ideals for romance were way too high once I started dating -they were all wrong!
Romance is…customized. It changes from person to person and couple to couple. True romance evolves from deep interpersonal relating, essentially, listening to and welcoming another person with full awareness. Once you’ve connected to another person that way, romance is just a simple act – a divine celebration meant only for you and your loved one.
So, my idea? Find yourself in a connected relationship and act on that connection without reservation. That is true romance.
