So in-between tour guests, I thought I’d take this opportunity to ramble on about romance. Even the authors, who don’t write about it, think about it. You do, don’t you! What exactly is this word that can make or break some relationships?
Firstly, look closer at the word. Right slap in the middle of it is ‘Man’!! That says it all really. But, do us women rely too much on our men to give us romance? What woman has strewn rose petals in the bedroom, taken her partner out of a meal by candlelight, whisked their partner away for a special weekend. Be honest, don’t we expect the man to do all this?
Little presents occasionally are lovely, but when did you actually give one to your partner? We expect flowers, choccy’s, but what do we give him. It’s all food for thought. I’m guilty of all the above, but I do try and fit the proverbial shoe on my foot, instead of it always being wedged on my husbands, occasionally. Even if he did complain, after I gave him a wonderful lavender massage by candlelight, that he smelt funny and the candles marked the ceiling with black soot.
Bless men!! You can’t live with them and expect romance all the time, yet you can’t live without them, or the romance that should be there.
What a conundrum. But that’s romance for you.
