By definition, the word romance means "a feeling of excitement and/or mystery that is associated with love." People have been going on and on about this word for centuries, and there's a reason for it. It's because romance is something that a lot of women (and men) have grown to need in their relationships. Gone are the days when one could just pound their chest in a show of strength and end up in a relationship that could last for decades. Today, most of us require romance before we even get to the relationship stage. That's not to say that some women don't still go for the caveman type ... they just prefer that he has roses taped to his stone club.
But in a world of diversity, not everyone is the same. It is something we can be thankful for because what a boring life it would be if we all did, wore and ate the same things. And it's no different when it comes to romance. Some women need to give and receive it more than others. But what about you in particular? Are you part of the 93%? Or are you more or less romantic than the majority?
