"To bask in the delights of idealized love is, in essence, to be a romantic. Hollywood, it seems, has personified romance as candlelit dinners in fancy French restaurants or giggly chases in slow-motion through daisy-filled meadows. The truth is that expressions of love and affection don't have to be expensive or overwhelming. Holding hands, casual walks, or a simple "I love you" are those little things which can really go a long way. If you aren't comfortable with the traditional romantic protocol, you can come up with your own ways of letting someone know how much you care. The truth is that there are no rules.

It is important to note that romance is not a component of love that appeals to everyone; nor is it necessary to keep passion alive. Passion can be stirred by simply being respectful and honest with the one you love. Whether you're a romantic at heart or a more pragmatic lover, as long as you're willing to put your heart and soul into a relationship there is no amount of roses, candlelit dinners or four-string quartets than can measure up or compare to that".

Quoting Dolcedileche:

Good evening!

 

I am back!  Oh...I spent a week in the grips of true unconditional love.  Couple number one hosted me in their little apartment in Rome.  The two have learned to forgive the little stuff and work together to be half of a whole.  A perfect blend of sharing.  One will take 75% of the burden whilst the other will bask in what is left.  And by some miracle the percentages shift to accommodate their relationship.  Don't get me wrong...boy do the disagree with each other.  however, it usually ends with a laugh.  After 30+ years, this is the definition of love...unconditional.

 

Couple number 2 live in a villa outside of Rome.  One works his bejesus off in Rome at his hotel, whilst the other works the olives and other vegetation on the villa.  They come together at the weekend to share the fruits of their efforts.  After 30 years of being together, they understand what it means to give and take.  This again (I feel) is what love is all about.

 

In closing, I agree...be damned with the Hollywood scenes of a man running after a woman on a bus in the rain or climbing a fire escape to bring  roses..or wisking me off to Paris.  (no..wait a minute...I'd take that..smile)

 

. Just give me a partner who gets me, appreciates, supports, forgives and trusts me.  A man who looks pass all the cells that come together to make my body and sees the energy that is truly me.  Now that folks is....LOVE

 

Remain always blessed!!

You mean there is hope.  That here just might be someone crazy enough that they just might be satisfied with someone who is just flat out crazy about them.  A someone who just maybe is a little crazy too as well as flat out crazy about them.  .  

 



@Rmacc your comments sound like a riddle that needs further untangling.  Thanks for comments
