What is the most powerful symbol of romance?
I actually really like the ampersand (&), like when people use it to join their names. It looks like an entwined sort of thing so it feels more intimate than just saying "and", plus it's got a sneaky infinity symbol in there too!
What would be your dream romantic gesture?
I love getting surprise gifts from my partner just because the item made him think of me. E.g. the other day, I was feeling unwell and came home to find he bought me a pair of Harry Potter slippers to put on when I got back because they made him think of me and he thought it might perk me up/make me more comfortable). So I like getting things not because it's my birthday or Christmas or whatever but instead just because I was on his mind.
Share a love story.
Going on adventures together make the best love stories. Taking someone's hand and running into the unknown is brave and beautiful. It can be as simple as trying out a new coffee shop, or as bold as moving across the country together - but it always brings you together when you're truly in love. It proves that the only constant thing that you need is each other. So, when my partner squeezes my palm and pulls me towards something new, I can't help but smile and put aside my doubts. We're in it together.
