Romance Beta

"All I really, really want our love to do is to bring out the best in me and in you too." Joni Mitchell

Romance is a personal feeling. It cannot be created. If the feeling is created, then it is not romance, but a well-planned act. When it is from the head but not from the heart, it is not romance.

Spending a night with the loved one... driving during midnight with no particular destination... beautiful night scenes... sharing history... listening to jazz... nothing is planned... everything just comes so natural. This is romance.

Doing things randomly without any planning is romance. Everything just goes with the heart. There is no right or wrong with romance, but whether the feeling is here or not.

However, romance doesn't last long, so those enchanting moments should be remembered by heart. They'll stay there forever. Pictures only hold images, but not the feeling at the moment. Images will be worn out, but memories that held deep within heart remain.

When the usual something is done unusually, it is romance.

Nowadays, almost everyone has a mobile phone. Who really needs a payphone? Isn't it more convenient to make a call with the mobile phone? The numbers are all there in the phone. Just search the name, press dial, and the person will be on the phone after several rings. Phone numbers? What are they for? Do people still bother to remember phone numbers?

However, calling someone with a payphone is not as easy as one might think.

"What is the number of that person? What's the number again please?"

If it's not there in the heart, then it's not there in the head.

Giving without asking anything in return is romance, because... that's love.
