All of us for in love. Does that make everyone a romantic? I do not think so. Then what differentiates? Where do you draw the line?

Here is what I think:

To me, Romantics is a far wider characteristic of human nature. In a broad sense, I would say: Romantic = Devotional. You are romantic if you perceive the reality through the filter of a glorified existence. This existence could be your lover, your country, your faith, your cause or whatever.

But that definition actually classifies a lot of us (if not most) as romantic? d'oh! What do you think?

I am much more of a romantic than my wife.I remember dates send flowers,open doors etc.That doesn't mean she doesn't love me we just love in different ways.Thats what love and romance really is accepting the differenceand loving them anyway.

being romantic is not just buying flowers, candy and sexy undies... Its doing the small stuff for them like going to buy her daily panties and bra that she can use everyday and just on that hot date night. Just giving her a foot rub after a long day and not say my turn, actually cooking her a dinner and servering her and you still do the dishes after words lol. So thats what i think is being part of being a romantic... thats me thou Pour Wine

Well..... Being romantic is kinda hard to define though. I consider myself romantic in the sense that I like sending flowers, and all that let's say "Old fashioned way" of conquering a woman. Romance has somehow disappeared.

I would say romance is focusing on every emotional action. Anticipating every little action that might make someone happy. Guessing the expectations of a girl who may have grown up dreaming of a prince on a white horse, or of a boy who dreamed of finding that girl that would only smile for him. Making someone feel special, because they are the only person in the world that matters, and how you make them feel that way might be different, but is the romance in love.

To me, romantic feeling is one where one feels for the fulfillment of every wish and desire of one's beloved.
It maybe his/ her beloved, country or a notion or ideology.
But putting before one' self his/her beloved is the romance.

Yes, to a fault.
Just being for someone else, casual friends and long-time friends, with saying and doing something meaningful without looking for anything in return.

It's getting her flowers for no reason, hiding little love notes in her lunch, in the firdge, stuck to the bathroom mirror. Basicaly, anything that lets her know you're thinking of her. 'Course fixing her dinner & doing the dishes is GOOD, but it's the silly little stuff that often means the most.

Given the right person, I can be very romantic and love to show that I care for them.

Romantic is about caring about the other person. Loving them. When their happiness is as important as your own.

I actually like your definition quite well. Utilizing that notion I'm quite the romantic. I'm romantically floored by my girlfriend, of course, but I like that your phrasing expands it beyond that. The way a pilot, or somebody who wants to become one might be deeply connected to the romance of flight, I'm attached to the romance of the theater, or the written word.

I am a hopeless romantic when it comes to the person I'm involved with.

To me being romantic is not "just" loving whoever you're with. I'm not saying that loving someone is a small thing, I just lacked better wording.

It's a continous thing that you throughout the duration of the relationship. It can be just a simple text every now and then saying "I love you and looking forward to coming home and kiss you again", maybe leave a note in her handbag where it says "I love you=)" and then date it with the P.S. "You really should clear out your handbag" or it can be to surprise him and her with a homecooked meal or breakfast in bed.

Romance doesn't have to be big. It can just be words said or written to your partner, BUT in my book one thing is essential for it to be romance; it has to be clear that it comes from that heart and you do it out of love, not that you're just buying a pair of shoes to redeem yourself.

I love romantic as opposed to more prosaic relationships. Sharing the simple things; helping my lady with doors, her coat or her chair; cuddling under a blanket on a beach watching the sun sink into the horizon or on a couch watching TV or just sitting in front of the fireplace; walking arm in arm down that beach or a mall concourse; placing my jacket over her shoulders when she's chilly; a simple kiss when passing each other in the hallway, sharing meal making or cleaning up afterward and even though sometimes we have an itch that just needs to be scratched, I definitely prefer making love as opposed to simply having sex.

Guys when you are feeling romantic with your babe, I suggest you don't tie a rose around your pecker and wait nude for her on the couch.

1. Roses have thorns. Ouch!
2. She might walk in the door with her mom, or worse your own mom.
3. You might fall asleep and not realize they all have walked in the door.
4. I didn't do this, but a friend of mine did.

When I feeling romantic I cook her a romantic dinner while only wearing an apron and cowboy boots and let her watch. It works!!!

Although I'm not arguing what has been said already in this tread, I cannot help to add that romanticism can't be so simply put.

Romantic cannot be defined so easy, probably because it has little latitude. If you extent it a little this way or the other way you'll end up being maybe thoughtful, altruistic, kind, a lovely person.

Romantic may not be washing the dishes even after cooking the dinner. It's lovely for sure, but it's a lot. Discovering that her hair truly looks nice or just smiling mentioning that you truly love that gesture or her giggle (if it happens) that's romantic.

Romantic is the color red of a rose, a sunset, a candle, a blush after an unexpected kiss.

Romantic is soft as gentle music and or soft human voices. Try soft Samba, soft Jazz. Bebel Gilberto, Veronneau.

Romantic is sweet as a chocolate, as a brownie, as an eclair. It says, you don't need to care how many calories it has, not in this moment. Taste it, its not for your body, its for your soul. It's yours to enjoy..from me.

Being romantic is about invested time, not the moment when you try to be. Yes, that is the destination, but it could be an instant to a few minutes. Driving to go buy a great bottle of wine and preparing the necessary to enjoy the wine, picking her up and drive an hour to go sit an top of a cliff or a wall and finally watch the sunset... It cannot be done without time.

Finally romantic it's not one size fits all (she may not giggle). Romantic is discovering what tickles her, what leaves her speechless and calm.



Practice Happiness, it is a choice

Life is simple; we are what we eat and what we read. Talk is not much needed.

I like to think so.

There is no mark of self,
And no mark of others,
No mark of living beings,
And no mark of a life.

I have moments either way. I've lived long periods of my life with people who were impossible to please, but it did not completely kill my desire to. It just made me prone not to.
