Her Idea of Romance: -

燭o look in to his eyes first thing as you awaken. To be with your loved one at the Dinning table and not be able to eat a morsel. To be miles away from my Man and then suddenly smell his body and be overwhelmed by Memories. To speak for hours on the phone long distance, when he is away. To shop for a gift for my Special one and the thrill of planning 爴How to wrap it. Write a card and how to present that gift.
