Boy-Girl relations.

I’m very updated on goss now. Let me share some.

Girl A is ok looking. Above average. I used to think she was gorgeous the first time I met her thou. But her looks got kinda old after a while and I don’t even see her often! She is super super skinny thou. Her thighs are my arms -.- Anyway, guys go ga-ga over her. So she is going out with this alien looking guy (I swear I am not exaggerating!) She was away visiting her family for a while and had trouble with her visa when attempting to come back into the country and was stranded for a very long while. When she got back, she got two LV bags and was serenaded later at night by her boyfriend.

Tell me: What do you think about the notion of being romantic and romance?

I personally reckon that what the guy did was cheap romance. Oh c’mon. How many times have you seen that on tv? How many guys are buying their girls branded goods? A friend once said that a lot of international girl’s are just a cheaper versions of an escort. Sex every night = Branded goods a few times a month. I don’t know what the rate is for a professional escort but I reckon that it costs more than a few brands one month.

I think that romance in itself doest cost a lot of money. Flowers are not romantic, they die! I think that real romance lives on even after the relationship is no more there. I also think that romance without ‘love’/like are just empty gestures. Romance doesn’t have to cost much; all it needs is just being raw, doing stuff ‘just because’. Waking up early to make breakfast, get all dressed up for a nice dinner at home, a slow walk during a starry night. All these are just fine and they don’t cost as much as a pair of red soles. For a pair of red soles you can buy tickets to Paris and walk down those quaint little streets hand in hand; how much more romantic can it get?

I personally reckon that romance is over-rated yet under-rated at the same time. There is a lot of romance going on at the moment but its without real feelings, but yet, there’s too little romance going on when feelings are just over flowing. I look at old couples who still walks hand in hand down the street and I stare at them with envy. I also do wonder, what do they do to keep the spark alive?

‘If you had the chance to do it all over again, would you?’
‘Yes’

There is a lot I’d change. The first thing that crept into my mind was how I would be more romantic, to be more vocal about my feelings. Is it just me or are there people like this as well? I love being romanced and well, I have to say that I have not been good enough. If I had another go at it, I would be more romantic. After all, I’m sure guys loved being romanced as girls do.

My notion of romance is simple. Keep it simple. No fancy stuff. Keep it real and raw. A peck before you leave work and pillow talks is sufficient for me. Too many surprises too often just takes the whole fun out of it. Everyone loves being swept off their feet and romanced once in a while, so why not?

So tell me, what do you think about romance and being romantic? Is it just a gesture to get the person you want or should there be something more to it?
