Atomic Elements Of Romance


What "being romantic" means varies widely from person to person, but at its core, romance involves doing something to express affection in a meaningful yet unexpected way. A true act of romance requires creativity and sincerity, often inspired by love. There are millions of romantic ideas in books, movies and on the Internet, but true romance comes from within.

Some atomic elements of romance

·         Cute Things - Teddy bears are romantic. Puppies are romantic. Cherubic baby archers are romantic.  Small things are always cute.


·         Low Light - Candles are romantic. Sunrises and sunsets are romantic. Any kind of low light, you see, is romantic, hence why dinner dates after dark are more romantic than lunch dates at noon.

·         Red - Red is romantic, because red is the color of love and passion. Red roses mean, "I love you."

·         Background Music - Background music is romantic, and note the word "background," because not just any music is romantic. For music to be romantic, it must be too soft to hear. Also, it may not be lively or funny or good. Elevator music is the most romantic genre of music out there.

·         Chocolate 

·         Fancy Curly Things - Flair and flourishes are romantic. Whenever you get  a greeting card, get one of the ones with all the curly pink scribbles on it. When you write  letters, make the tails of the 'g's and 'y's really long and the loops in the 'd's and 'b's and 'p's really big. That's way romantic.  

·         The Most Intrinsically Romantic Thing Ever - A small red candle made out of chocolate and shaped like a teddy bear holding a heart with scribbles all over it that plays a tune when you wind it up. 

·         Your Time - One of the required ingredients of romance is your time. Nope, there's no way out of it.

·         Personal Stuff - Romance is personal. To be romantic, you must be personal and do personal kind of things.

·         Remembering Birthdays & Anniversaries

·         Pet Names 

·         Style - Even if you get all the essentials of romance right, a lack of style could still foul you up. Try to be as "suave" and "debonair" as you possibly can, as this is the optimum romantic style. Be elegant, humble, refined, independent, thoughtful, responsible, compassionate, spontaneous, reputable, graceful, polite, literate, entertaining, discreet, funny, upstanding, sensitive, fun, sophisticated, pleasant, selfless, reverent, and genuine.

When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out.
