I was with a group of women when I asked the question;
Some of the answers were to be expected, candlelight, roses or flowers in general, soft music, sunsets, dancing, walks on the beach. You know, the usual suspects.
But then the answers began to stretch beyond the usual and became much more interesting.
Sitting on the sofa watch a movie with the kids cuddled up between us.
Fixing dinner together.
Working on a house project together.
Traveling anywhere together.
I’m starting to see a theme here, it’s the together part. Doing stuff together can naturally be romantic.
Which led to…. Driving somewhere, anywhere… together.
Really, I asked, why driving together?
Answer: Because when we’re driving somewhere together, it’s just the two of us and we exist in our own little world where we can touch and talk about anything we want and we’re cocooned in our little world with the whole world whizzing by outside.
I have to agree, the way she described it, it sounded pretty romantic.
It made me stop to think about the most romantic scenes in my stories. I have a walking in the garden scene, a watching the sunset scene and an eating dinner by candlelight, all typical romantic scenes. But none of them compared to sitting side-by-side going down’s life highway… together.
Now isn’t that romantic?
Romance brought to you by the letter T – together.
Enjoy always, T
