I do not think that it is dead and gone. Most of us like doing things like that. I believe that part of the problem is that most households need to be a 2 income household. My wife and I used to do walks, hike's in the mountians, day trips to the beach, ect... But with the country the way it is, she has to work. That does not leave alot of time for romance. I believe this problem effects alot of couples. At least alot that I know.

Yes and no.

I say yes, because when I meet a guy, it seems like all he's trying to do is get in my pants. I too want sex eventually, but I don't appreciated someone who's practically trying to talk me out of them from the moment he starts speaking to me. Then again, I live in a college town...

No, because I have the lucky friends that have bfs that want to wine dine and romance them. I dated one guy who was obsessed with being the nice guy. He opened doors for me and everything, but he was conservative and worried about the hemlines on some of my clothing. The hemlines were fine, I just have a big bum (which I love), that hikes everything up.

The most romantic men I meet are not Americans. I swear if this guy I know were not living on the other side of the country I'd be with him in a second. He actually texts me to ask about my day and I've never kissed him, but him just holding my hand for a moment, made my head go blank. He is the definition of a romantic. I've considered saving up for a plane ticket to visit him because my luck with men here is non-existent.

I don't think romance is dead, no. But I also think that real life is not like what we see in the movies. I think that the kind of romance we see in the movies isn't realistic, so sometimes we have to rethink our idea of what is romantic. Like to me, emptying the dishwasher or running the vacuum without being asked can be really romantic - but you won't be seeing that in any movies any time soon. LOL The other stuff is nice sometimes too, but I think we all also have to be a bit more realistic most of the time.

I think many people have been disillusioned by bad relationships. I used to be really romantic, but I have become less so.

AMEN! Hell, I'm touched by a man wanting to do something other than sit on his ass without complaining that he's too tired from work. Really, what have I been doing all day?

Makes me think of my non-romantic relationship with my roomie.

I think this is tough because I know a lot of guys who are sweet and kind and very romantic. The problem is that all of the women in their life like them as "just a friend" and never want to date them.

IS YOUR CAPSLOCK BROKEN? TRYING TO READ THIS IS LIKE HAVING AN ACCEPTANCE SPEECH SHOUTED INTO YOUR EAR BY BRIAN BLESSED!!

Anyways, romance is most certainly not dead. It has just been taken out of the public eye in favour of the quicksex that is scattered throughout popular culture. Sex sells these days; romance takes too long.

No, romance isn't dead. But if your partner isn't making those things happen (candlelit dinners, gazing into each others' eyes, etc.) just take the initiative and tell him/her how you feel.
