Resuscitating romance

I regret to inform you that despite our best efforts to save it, it seems that romance has left the building,

Passed away,

Gone to a better place.

Sorry ladies,


Today may be St Valentine Day but I for one am burying my head in the sand, growling at people who try to talk to me and snarling at red hearts that are everywhere.
(Personally I prefer skulls to hearts anyway)

(and I have no proof but I do have a sneaking suspicion that romance was MURDERED, murdered by PRACTICALITY)

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE romance, I really really do. I may come over like a bit of a prickly bitch but if you know me at all then you know that for me romance is everything, I have an inner princess that sits alone as if in a tower and yearns to be looked at with hunger and need, (now is that romance or lust, I always confuse the two)

For me romance isn't about spending huge amounts of money, it is about the little things that make you smile when you think of the other person.

Post-it notes left around the house (and I don't mean ones that say "I need clean pants")

Someone putting your needs before theirs.

Kissing, just kissing. the kissing (Oh the kissing)

A message that makes you smile, when before you wanted to cry. :-D

Just knowing that someone is thinking about you.

These are the things that I find highly romantic.

Yeah I miss romance.

Practicality just isn't as much fun is it?

Shall we see if we can resuscitate it a bit?

Romantic film quotes coming up.

"No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often. and by someone who knows how"

"Me? I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did. Of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you"

"I wish I knew how to quit you"

"I didn't come here to tell you that I can't live without you, I can live without you. I just don't want to"

"I want the fairytale"

and this one isn't a film but I heard it recently and loved it.

"I don't love you because you're beautiful, you're beautiful because I love you"
(If you can tell me what it's from then you get triple points)


Awwwwww why does romance have to be dead? I love romance with all my stone cold bitter heart.

Maybe romance isn't dead, maybe it's just sleeping. Or busy with other people.

Anyone want to reignite my belief that romance isn't dead?

(Smiles a bit. Only you know why)

Let me know

  1. The Baby line from Dirty Dancing still gives me the shivers. I still can't watch it since Patrick died. (sad, I know) but what a line, and delivery from Jennifer Grey. Amazing x

  2. Romance isn't dead, guys just need educating!!
    "I love you" whispered at an unexpected moment
    Can & will do much more than £30 worth of dead roses
    From the garage. Love your lady everyday, not just one &
    All women are beautiful xxxxx

  3. Gone with the wind
    Dirty Dancing
    Brokeback Mountain
    Rumour has it
    Pretty Woman

    (....and they said I didn't have a romantic bone in my body!)
    We don't "do" St Val's Day either, rather we work on the principle that Love is for life, not just St Valentine's Day.

    Having said that the Ovver Arf's all-time fave movie is Notting Hill, largely because of the happy ending. And Spike.

  4. Immature love says "I love you because I need you". Mature love says "I need you because I love you". Still one if my favourites.
    I think love is made up of many different things and some of them require effort but if there is anything worth making an effort for surley love is.

  5. Worst film ever but I love "you had me at hello" and romance doesnt have to be consumerist. I love the little things. A post it note, making dinner for me etc.


Due to increased spam comments I am now having to moderate the comments I receive. I will do my best to get them approved quickly so please, carry on commenting as every time you comment a kitten smiles.
