What’s your definition of romantic?

My idea of romance is when my girlfriend says “Hey Mike, let’s go fishing today together.” The thought of being at the lake with my woman by my side in the “Great Outdoors” makes me feel loved. I also enjoy when she says, “Hey Mike, I have Dodger tickets,” because it means we are going to a Dodger game which we both enjoy immensely. So basically, Dodger Games with my girlfriend and fishing trips are my love language. I also enjoy some freshly made Oatmeal Raising Cookies!

I know Romanticism was not the topic, but I feel like I am definitely a bit of a Romantic in that sense. I enjoy thinking about the “good old days” and being in places that are more rural, National Parks, and such. I think we have over-complicated life in an effort to make it easier and in the process, lost or muddled our identities as human beings. I like reading John Muir and generally seek a state of balance with nature, that my normal day does not always afford me.

  1. I have been divorced and single for the past 10 years… sadly I am very comfortable being uncomfortable and alone .

    1. Time to get back in the game man! Online dating is pretty fun!

  2. My definition of romantic also brings back thoughts of frolicking with what comes natural to you. It’s an unforced attraction to acting intimately with someone perhaps.

    1. That is interesting, there is an element of freedom in it.

What are your thoughts on this?
