What is the most powerful symbol of romance?
Giving up your time to do something that will evoke happiness in the person you love.
What would be your dream romantic gesture?
Not necessarily engagement or marriage, but a clear symbol of eternal commitment to me and to our partnership.
Share a love story.
Our love story is not full of big, romantic gestures or is the sort of story you'd first imagine when you read the words "love story". But it's the epitome of a love story to me, because it involves a love shared between two people who are completely, solely dedicated to one another. We met at tech in a drama class. We didn't talk, or interact with each other unless it was a group scenario, until he recited a poem for an assignment that drew me in. I'm a writer, and a lover of words, so that was the best thing he could have done to capture my attention. We started talking after that, and grew into friends, and then something more than friends, and then what we are now. THAT is the romance of the twenty-first century; that you can somehow just find the person you're supposed to be with and fall gently, slowly, into life with them. Until one day you realise you're struggling to remember how you first met, because in the back of your mind they have always been there, waiting to meet you in person.
