I was watching an episode of Bones today. At one point in the episode, Sweets was telling Angela that there is more to romance than just sex.
Romance is pretty much irrelevant in todays generation. There are no more going out on dates, taking someone out to the movies, etc. It just seems like that everyone is skipping all of those steps in order to get to a point in their lives where they think they would be most happy. The definition of romance from the Oxford dictionary is, “a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.” It feels like that no one likes mystery anymore. Romance is about discovering who the person is. I guess people are afraid of mystery these days. To me, there is something alluring about mystery to me and it makes me want to delve into it some more.
Thank you for reading this.
