Absolutely! Romance will always exist.
This is not from a personal perspective as I don’t have anyone to be romantic with, but still I believe as long as there are people with emotions romance will exist.

My comments are usually a little flippant Appyadix and that one was too.
I’d be the first to stand up for the concept of romance… always have and always will.
I’m sorry you don’t have anyone to practice the art of romance with at this time but I hope if you wish for it, it happens for you.
May I offer you a hug…#1512293Dutchy81040MemberMember since: May 22, 2013

Yes, it does exist, even on Grown-UPS.
I met my Happy Harry here 6 years ago and after a year of corresponding, we met and last week we celebrated our 5 year anniversary of living together.
It has been great !! Long may we last together.#1520812wandakrMemberMember since: May 26, 2011

The reality of romance doesn’t exist….it’s a fairy tale state of being conceived out of the imagination of dreamers..

I think it depends what you mean by romance- the soppy icky sugar-coated stuff is unrealistic,That sort of romance doesn’t exist. But when you see couples who have been married for decades and still love each other, that is evidence that the real thing is is still going strong.My sister and her husband,married for 50 years(51 in February)are not the young people that they were back then. They are now in their seventies and have been through all sorts of ups and downs in life. They have grown closer over the years. Love matures as people do.
I know many couples who are living proof that romance does exist.But in order for romance to be of the lasting kind it must have substance,and that substance is Love.#1520852gabyoneMemberMember since: November 13, 2008

Agree Gigglebyte. Mature love is much more than than what the media portrays.

Romance does still exist .after losing a husband after 44years of Romance, one longs to have that again. To see a happy couple out holding hands ,whether it be beach ,dance floor or where ever, I long for that again .#1533419joybelMemberMember since: November 2, 2006

Not sure I have ever been romanced. Had several boyfriends though I was not keen on becoming the steady one and usually ended it. Maybe I was not all that keen on becoming the little woman and all the work that entailed. Life just happened and I did fall in love and married him. Still was not keen to have to look after him as well as me and all the extra work with babies turning up, when my mum looked after me until I left home. I have two unmarried granddaughters in their mid thirties who owe nothing to any male, have good jobs, don’t chase men or hang around the slave markets. At least there is a choice today and living together is no longer the food for gossips. I wonder what gossip is about these days . One can have your cake and romance any time.

WHEREFORE ART THOU?
I want to have a love affair that takes my breath away
A mix of Casablanca and The Man That Got Away
I would accept a mix of someone – maybe Romeo
Or Rick, or Rhett or better yet, Leo Di Caprio
He’d be my Poet Laureate, write lovely poetry
My Neruda, my Cyrano – inspired just by me
He’d be more dark than fair I think although I must declare
I can get rather mushy at a man with golden hair
He may be bald but even that would peak my lustful drive
If he looked like Yul Brynner did when he was still alive
He need not have an eight pack or be fit as fit can be
He simply needs to be a gentleman to handle me
There’s nothing wrong with dreaming, hell! a girl can dream can’t she?
I’d even be contented with someone who’s cud-a-lee
I mean I’m not exactly in the bloom of youth myself
But anything is better than being left up on the shelf !!
