I've spent the week trying to figure out where romance went, you know, a kiss on the hand, a guy opening the door, paying for dinner .I'm old fashioned, and have become very disallusioned regarding dating. I think men worry too much that a women wants equality. In the boardroom, yes! On a date, no. I loved to romance the man I was with and he didn't know how to handle it, so I'm done with him. Whatever happened to opening the door? Or calling or texting to say he was thinking of me? Tell me men, so i know what to do!

ok, here's my take...u might want to grab a chair...

the women i meet insist on equality to the point that the romance u suggest is mutual like i never imagined...and they require i gave up being stuck in a time capsule...

whoever is in a position to get the door, does it...

on my 1st date after my divorce, the woman brought me a 1st one ever...

on most dates, the woman will say, u pay for dinner, i'll buy us drinks...

on a small cafe table, had one woman instruct the waiter to move her place setting and chair as close to mine as possible...and she adored me from very close up like i had done to my dates in the past...even making out with me at times...

are u starting to see a pattern here...

i'm guessing the romance we both remember is evolving into something very different...and assertive woman are taking more control over how their lives happen around them...

and we all get to decide whether it's nice or not so nice...

There are many of us men out here who enjoy doing those things for women. We are the good guys, The ones women don't want. They all seem to go for the bad boys and ignor us. Some just gave up trying, and others just sit quietly in the background hoping the women will realize what there doing.

I don't consider a man paying for dinner romantic...have you thought maybe it is more romantic to cook him dinner? Prepare a picnic? Breakfast on the patio? Why should a man be responsible for the romance?

As for the kissing of the hand, opening doors...I get that from my sweetie and more...the little kisses on the back of the hand a definitely romantic....the opening of the door is just a very nice gesture.

Romance is nothing more than knowing what makes your sweetie happy and doing it when you don't have to, when it's unexpected, and adding a little extra to it. Women who are independent and assertive appreciate it as much as anyone else. And L4E is right - both halves of a couple have the responsibility for keeping romance alive.
