It's All About The Romance...

Happy Monday All,

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was pretty good. Relaxing.  What about yours?

I don't know how many times I've mentioned I'm a hopeless romantic (probably at least twice every year since I started this blog, right? So, I started in around 2009, so 4 years, times 2, equals 8). So by now everyone knows I am.

Although I don't call it "hopelessly romantic",  I call it "helplessly romantic" because I can't help myself. I'm drawn to pretty much anything romantic. Movies, music, books, dates with husband. Yep.

There's a movie that the Hallmark Channel put out called How To
Fall In Love. In it they talk about whether or not old fashioned romance is dead. I don't think it is. I think if you look hard enough, you find it. Sure, you might have to look harder in some places than other places, but it's there. (It's a sweet movie, and I really enjoyed it...some good dating/personal advice, too).

There's a book out by Dr. Gary Chapman called The Five Love Languages. It talks about finding what way you feel the most loved:  Words of Affirmation, Acts Of Service, Gifts, Physical Touch, Quality Time.  Very interesting book, and a really good way to understand yourself, and the person you're interested in. My husband and I have a copy, and we both read it. I highly recommend it. There's even a section of Dr. Chapman's website dedicated to The Five Love Languages.

Whenever my husband pays me a good compliment--even if I don't remember specifics--I always remember how it made me feel. There are times he's said just the right thing at just the right time, and I remember it. For me, that's incredibly romantic. Or when we're sitting together, watching a movie or a show, and he just reaches over and touches me. It's like a Romance novel or a movie. 

So what's your idea of romance? What makes you feel all gooey and romantic inside?

Have A Magical Moment Monday!

I think just feeling like you are truly appreciated by someone you think is really great is romantic,(provided it is the right person.)When someone who you find attractive for all the right reasons makes you feel truly
special...romance.
I know I haven't been around;I have been neglecting everyone.I hope I am back on track now. I have only done the bare minimum on the shared blog and , until last night, had abandoned my own.I hope to see more from you soon!

Tonette,

I agree. Feeling appreciated is a BIG part of romance.

Oh, and don't worry if you haven't been around. I totally understand--been fairly busy myself. LOL

Thank you for dropping by and commenting. :-)
