What is Romance ?
Romance is love plus desire.
Romance is the happiness of true lovers.
Romance is a loving, passionate and intimate relationship.
Romance is an ardent, exciting, and mysterious emotional bond.
Romance is a combination of caring and attraction in a mating relationship.
Romance is the feeling of being transformed by the love and desire of another.
Romance is the excitement of the chase, capture and eternal imprisonment of a heart.
Romance is the feeling of becoming more complete as you find missing puzzle pieces in another.
Romance is pleasurable, devoted intimacy that enables two people to become of one heart, one mind, and one body.
Romance is the feeling of having one’s most important relationship needs met by another person, and wanting to meet his or her needs in return.
Romance is a mixture of pleasant and exciting feelings, such as anticipation, adventure, amorousness and caring, that surrounds a growing intimate relationship between a man and a woman.
Many believe that romantic love is the same as passionate love [infatuation]. It isn’t. Romantic love has the intensity, engagement and sexual chemistry that passionate love has, minus the obsessive component. Passionate or obsessive love includes feelings of uncertainty and anxiety. This kind of love helps drive the shorter relationships but not the longer ones.—Bianca P. Acevedo, Researcher
Romance is being one
Romance reaches its greatest potential in marriage with the complete development of emotional, spiritual, and physical intimacy. Emotional intimacy is being of one heart—desiring to make each other happy, to be together, and to belong to each other. Spiritual intimacy is being of one mind—sharing the same values and basic life goals, and working together to attain them. Physical intimacy is being of one body—sharing the pleasures and comforts of intimate sensuous affection.
Complete romance in marriage is like a jet airplane. Emotional intimacy is like the wings that provides lift, allowing you to fly to great heights and distances, and without which your ride would be nothing but a painful bumping along the ground. Spiritual intimacy is like the tail with its various control surfaces that give stability and direction, enabling you to finally arrive where you really want to be. Physical intimacy is like the engine. It provides desire and motivation, making powered, thrilling flight possible.
In marriage all of the worthy yearnings of the human soul, all that is physical and emotional and spiritual, can be fulfilled.—Boyd Packer
When romance is alive, each lover is eager to please the other for no other reason than to make him or her happy. Snickering, sarcasm, bickering, pouting, competing, complaining, and blaming are gone. The woman is able to focus on her man’s happiness because she knows that he is watching out for her interests, so she doesn’t have to worry about them. The man similarly doesn’t feel like he has to compete for his interests because she is eagerly concerned with them. Such a goal is not unrealistic. Although no romance is perfect, many couples have come close enough to the ideal of "one heart" that they can go for months with no arguments, smiling cheerfully at each other each evening, and cherishing their time together. They have achieved this state of marital bliss because each partner began conscientiously striving to meet each of the relationship needs of the other. As relationship needs were met, mutual good will and appreciation began to replace resentment and self-concern, until each could trust the good faith of the other sufficiently to pull together as one instead of competing. Your feelings of caring for a person, and his or her feelings of attraction for you, increase as you make efforts to meet his or her relationship needs. This is the formula for marital bliss. As Leo Tolstoy said, “Happy families are all alike. All unhappy families are unhappy in their own way.”
Love is an action verb. A happy marriage is built and sustained by daily acts of love and respect that will produce feelings of tender affection in the giver as well as the receiver, and provide a garden in which the romantic potential of each spouse may develop.
The happiness of married life depends upon making small sacrifices with readiness and cheerfulness.—John Selden
True love does not come by finding the perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.—Jason Jordan
The greatest factor in a happy marriage is an anxious concern for the comfort and well-being of one’s companion.—Gordon Hinckley
…of one mind
Risk and sacrifice are inherent in romance. This is because you can only have romance to the extent that you are willing to sacrifice your individuality for the sake of unity with your mate. Your emotions and decisions are no longer all your own, but are intertwined with those of your lover. Because it requires unity, romance dies when it meets up with stubborn independence or selfishness. In order for romance to blossom fully in marriage, husband and wife must forge new values, priorities and goals together. This is possible only as they come to understand and trust each other, and learn together what is really important in life. True romance requires an unwavering commitment to marriage, demonstrated daily by putting the good of the marriage above other pursuits.
Romance is not double-minded. It requires choosing reality over fantasy, and forsaking all others in lifelong commitment to your chosen mate. Romantic flirtations or fantasies involving anyone else can erode trust and desire in marriage, making intimacy and unity more difficult. If extramarital flirtations or fantasies have weakened a romance, both partners must exercise faith, hope, and charity to rebuild the trust and desire that were lost. This rebuilding occurs by the meeting of each other’s basic relationship needs. Seeing those needs met by their mates enables husbands and wives to regain trust and to have the assurance they need to give themselves completely to the marriage, and to make his future and her futuretheir future together.
…of one body
Within marriage, romance can reach its greatest potential with the sharing of sexual intimacy.
Properly enjoyed in marriage, sexual intimacy is a glue that can bind two hearts together, and make romance timeless and complete. Sexual intimacy is God’s wedding gift to married couples. Its purpose is not only procreation, but also celebration, recreation, and unification. It makes forgiveness, patience, acceptance, and forbearance easier. Used as intended—for mutual enjoyment in marriage—it is innocent and beautiful. It can be an expression of love, desire, appreciation, and tenderness. It allows a couple to leave their troubles behind for a while and find refreshment, redemption, and mutual recommitment. The sexual relationship in marriage is powerful, but fragile. It may be easily damaged or destroyed by extramarital flirtations or adulterous fantasies, by inconsiderate or unkind acts, by neglect, or by ignorance of mental and emotional differences between men and women as they relate to sex.
Physical intimacy is a strong force in strengthening the love bond in marriage, enhancing and reinforcing marital unity.—Homer Ellsworth

Saying something romantic in writing.
No surprise that the ones we have on record are mostly from famous people. Yet often stored away in a box in many houses is a bundle of letters tied up with a bow, a reminder of the days when lovers exchanged letters in the post when they were apart. In the days before mobile phones or even household telephones, the only way to communicate with someone you loved when they were away was to write a letter and post it to them. In the days of instant communication it is difficult to imagine the pleasure of receiving a letter like this way, or the anticipation of listening for a letter to arrive delivered to your doormat by the postman. This letter writing may have made saying something romantic easier, after the practice of writing something romantic.

- quote Elizabeth Bowen
The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is to love and be loved in return. – From "Unforgettable with Love" by Natalie Cole
Saying I love you for the first time…
Saying "I love you." or even writing it is always going to be more difficult the first time when you may be unsure of the other person’s response.
If you are unsure about saying "I love you" then it might be best to wait just a little longer until you can say those three words with confidence, and try to read the signs that the other person is giving you to judge what their response will be.
However if you are ‘head- over heels’ and crazy about someone then waiting to say it might not happen – you might just say it one day when you least expect to.
