    Tucking me to sleep, holding my hand during a nerve-wrecking moment, whipping me a cup of coffee, handind over my slippers, dancing in the kitchen, talking late at night on the phone, and asking permission from my parents – that's romantic. It's the little things that get me.

    Romantic? It's like doing little things for the one you love. It's hearing his/her voice first thing in the morning saying goodmorning and before the day ends with a "goodnight". I love how two people share their umbrella in the rain, reminds me of someone. <3

    Romantic for me is when my man bravely goes to the "romance" section of a bookstore (ignoring the weird look the women gives him), buy the book he knew I would love, spend hours waiting in line to get the book signed by my favorite author, then give it to me as a surprise gift. And in return, he would only ask one thing. To see me smile. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Romantic is not searching for tangible things. Romantic for me is falling in love with him, just because of his sweet words and his simple actions, like opening doors, texting you early in the morning. Romantic is seeing the things you never thought you were looking for.

    Romantic is a word for a person who's willing to do everything for their love ones. For me, the word "romantic" is a gesture to show their love for someone like having a candlelit dinner with the one you love, dancing aimlessly under the blue moon, serenading and such. And definitely, romantic is someone who gives much efforts and has their own way of making the special someone

When you eat street foods with him/her, when he/she takes you to a cheap amusement parks, etc. It does not matter. As long as your with him/her you'll feel the romantic. :)))

    Romantic is a characteristic most women want their partner to be. It is expressing their feelings in their own different way. Romantic is a synonym of strange. Why strange? Because you are unfamiliarized in doing it and it just comes out with you especially when you want to express your love or affection towards your opposite. You just find out yourself being pecular.
