26. I think a lot of people don't understand what real romance is. Anyone can buy flowers, candy, and jewelry; there's no love in that.

The truly romantic things in life are those little things you do every day to show you care, and that you're thinking of them. it's going out of your way to make them happy. The way you hold their hand when you know they are scared, or you save the last piece of cake for them.

The random text in the middle of the day, just to say, "I love you," or, "I miss you." The way they stop to kiss you when you pass by. It's dedicating your favorite song to them, and letting them eat your fries.

Telling them that they are beautiful, even when they have just climbed out of bed. It's putting your favorite show on pause so they can tell you about their day, and laughing and their joke, even the really lame ones.

It's slow dancing in the kitchen and kissing in the rain. Romance isn't about buying, it's about giving. True romance is in the gestures.
