What is your definition of romance?
I used to think that romance is the crazy things that happens in the movies, and rarely in real life, like when the girl comes home to find the place filled with red roses. But with time I realized that romance is the little marks of attention that warms your heart, the compliments that your significant other give you daily that reminds you he loves you and he cares for you all the time.
What is your ideal first date/ what’s the best date you’ve ever been on?
We were walking to a concert, and it started raining. The closest place we have found to refuge until the rain stopped was a barber shop. So we stood in front of the shop for an hour or so, just talking about random topics. Then I started getting cold, so he wrapped his arms around me and we cuddled for the first time. We never reached the concert..
What is the best piece of romance advice you have ever received?
My aunt told me one day: “Never go to bed without solving your problems with your man, bed is a place of peace” and she is right about this, this is the key to peaceful and long lasting relationship. I never let this happen to me.
If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?
Don’t narrow your choices by setting up too many criteria that your Mr. or Mrs. Right should have. Love comes in all color, shape and sizes. Just be open.
How do you keep the romance alive in your relationship?
It is quite complicated to keep the romance alive in a relationship when you’re so busy working to achieve professional goals. But I manage it by determining a time for us, no work, and no electronics; like the bedtime, the Sunday afternoon. It’s important that we set a time for us.
