What is the most powerful symbol of romance?
My partner & I embracing each other at the end of a difficult conversation is the most powerful symbol of romance to me. Learning to listen to your partner and then respond. To stay and communicate even when the conversation may be difficult to bear. To take turns at communicating, therefore respecting each other's opinions and really taking in what the other person has to say. Empathetic conversing means you and your partner can work through the difficult times instead of giving up on each other. In this modern day and age, I feel romantic partnership is given up on too easily.
What would be your dream romantic gesture?
To be honest right now my dream romantic gesture would be to have a full nights sleep and a late sleep in (we have a teething 6month old daughter who wakes every 20 minutes), to wake up to hot coffee and blueberry coconut waffles, then to be taken on a romantic day nature adventure with my partner and daughter.
Share a love story.
There was once a married man whose wife no longer loved him. When the two separated he took some time to clear his head out west in the country. There he met a local girl who he had know many years before. There was an instant connection. The girll knew this was bad timing, the man did too, but they couldn't resist falling for each other. The man was leaving for Ireland for a few months, perhaps indefinitely. The lovers made the embrased those last couple of days together, not knowing when they would see each other again. Once the man was in Ireland they spent hours and endless nights talking about anything and everything. Months passed and they still loved each other. Almost a year passed and it was just after Christmas when the two decided it would be okay to see each other again. As soon as the man walked in the door, that was it, their love story continued, that intense connection was still there. They now live together and have a beautiful baby girl
