Why do girls love romance so much?

I'm a girl and I love all the romantic movies and songs and all that kind of thing. But I don't know why. Why??

Report as

Romance keeps the couple close...often touchy-feely, too.. Romantic people, at least the way I see it, are generally very loving people with huge hearts...sensitive hearts. I love that in a man. Have to love a soft, mushy, caring guy.
Romance helps make the significant other feel special. It's just a beautiful thing....the way romance feels.......not that I'd really remember, least not in "real" life. -_-

@daveydave, not a woman worthy of your love. Just keep showing that romantic mushy side and one day the woman of your dreams will fall right into your arms. :0)

@craigsmom, beautiful way of putting it. Sometimes it seems like it only happens in fairy tails but any story (or chapter in your life) can turn into a fairy tail if you just keep your heart open. :0)

Good morning Gail! I must get ready for the cook-out. I just wanted to say 'hi' and I hope to find you later!

Sorry, Davy. Couldn't comment last night. Had a three-hour comment ban. : [
I actually dreamt of you this morning, believe it or not! :)
Davy, the right woman doesn't. You just have to find her. Awww, sounds like a story, there. Good luck.

Thank you, yinandyang4lover. Well, I have experienced it online and in a brief relationship, way back, but, I'm afraid that is it. I'm such a romantic type, myself, that it sure is longed for. Course when one doesn't have the right man, it makes it easier, I must say. Thanks. :)

Hondo, I see I'm too late, but, I hope you're having a great time. Thank you for the hi. :)

Craigsmom ~ I can say from what I've learned about you and from you, is an incredible amount of passion and compassion.
When you wake up in the mornings, try this. Acknowledge the greatness you have to offer the world. You have given so much, it's time to let someone give to you. It's hard to do what you are a giver and not a reciever. But, when you allow yourself to receive, you will be surprised... they may come! :)

Aww, Merlin. Thank you so much. That's very nice of you to say.
A giver and not a receiver.....hah, that is is exactly right, about me.
Acknowledge the greatness I have to offer the world? That almost sounds conceited, does it not :) No, I know what you're saying. Thank you for your sweet words. You are ALWAYS so kind.

I must apologize to you....that other message you left me......I wanted to look something up before getting back to you, and I planned to do so that day, and then I had internet connection problems. Well, since then, I will admit, I have been procrastinating. Shame on me. If that's my worst habit, though, I think I'm not too bad a person. lol Anyway, I haven't forgotten...I still remember the question it was on, for when I go looking........I am going to get back to you, believe it or not! :)

mhmm I know my wife does, she's a sucker for flowers and music so now when she's upset I buy flowers and break out the guitar. I guess its because women are wired that way my wife's just the sweetest woman I know so she needs to be treated sweet. A little romance never hurt anyone I like to be taken out on a date every once in a while.

I wrote my wife a love letter about 6 years ago for Valentine's day and I couldn't be in the same room while she read it, it was so cheesy! but she framed it and put it in our bedroom so now I'm reminded that I shouldn't take up poetry.
Report as
Wow!! That so sweet and wonderful! I'd love to get a love letter.
Report as
@marine, if it ended up in a frame then maybe you have more skill then you thought! I'm telling you sometimes all it takes with us hopeless romantics is just one single word said at the perfect time. Some times the most "cheesey" becomes the most favorite. :0)

Probably because girls are still stereotyped and are taught early to think of themselves basically in the role of wife and mother. Ideally Prince Charming (in whatever guise) will ride in on a white charger ad rescue them from the mediocrity (and drudgery) of life as a suburban housewife.

And, no, I'm not minimising the role women perform in the home -- often as well as sustaining a career. I'm merely pointing out that old stereotypes die slowly and it's natural for women to look for a romantic (and exciting) alternative.

Have a listen to this song by Peggy Seeger. She spells it out pretty well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCRRe72mwwY

It's one of the loads of stuff that makes girls/women beautiful. I admire someone who can freely express themselves and own their emotions which includes being a romantic. Experiencing romance in its' purest form can make OR break people. One of life's biggest most wonderful delights.

Not all girls think this -- I for one do not like romance all that much.

It is not good to generalize in this way. More and more women - and men - do not fit the gender stereo-type. As time moves forward you will see less and less of this.

Romance can be just about anything to anyone. For some, just doing little sweet thoughtful things can be considered romantic. Or maybe because some girls like the thought that a guy would make a complete fool of himself (sometimes) just to put a smile on her face. I think some girls also like it when they see a guy all tough with the outside world, but then when it comes to her, he's the complete opposite. Basically, I think many like being romanced because they are being appreciated and shown attention. Some girls just like to feel important and loved...and being romantic can be a way of showing that.

To me "romantic" is when my Husband washes the dishes, cooks me a meal, vacuums the Dog hair, cuts the dead tree in the front, ... and still goes to work and leaves me a cup of coffee if I'm not up yet, with a note "Good Morning!". Now that's Romance!:).
To him, romantic is all of the above, with me doing it, plus getting that coffee ready the night before going to bed so all he has to do is grumble,grumble-push a button, and me giving him lots of Hugs!

We laughed and laughed!! That's Romance!:O)!

The coolest thing about "that Man" is you get to wake up to him every morning and look at him after you have drooled on your pillow and he is snoring in your ear and .... you "still" love that tingly feeling you have.. year after year.
It's a wonderful thing. Love.

Yes it is......

...I just got me some "vacuuming time" yesterday morning....it was wonderful!!!

I am cracking up ... silently, he's snoring still! hahahaha!! But, it's the little things. Speaking of, I totally thought of you the other night. I was trying to vibe you to join in on an eagle conversation. I was wondering if you were soaring by about the eggs. I know they weren't yours. If they were, I would have been out there FULL arms and legs sceamming at the top of my lungs. Which would have bothered you, but you would have known I would not let anyone touch or snap pictures. It would hurt your eyes. :)

Some girls like to see there is a "soft side" to the macho build-up of a guy. In all actuality, I think the guy likes to see that side of himself too. He normally gets rewarded when he shows that side and we all like that!
