Cupid's Dictionary

Let's take a hypothetical couple, and let's call them, just for the hell of it, N and Z.

And let's place this hypothetical two into some hypothetical situations.

1)They decide to take an invigorating stroll after dinner. To counteract the chill of the air, N opts out of her light jacket and instead wraps herself in a long, black, fringed wool shawl with flowers. Z says:
"Honey, you look like a table". N says nothing but gives him a foul look [although according to Z she says plenty in the next two hours].

Poll #480426 Shall I compare thee to a piece of furniture

If you were N, would YOU feel pleased with that "table" remark?

1(3.4%)

12(41.4%)

0(0.0%)

0(0.0%)

3(10.3%)

12(41.4%)


2)As they wander about and N tries to convey the complexities of the female mind, she brings up things like "needing there to be specialness and effort in a relationship".
In an effort to take on board N's complaint about *needing romance* he says:
"The mooon is pretty. Now kiss me." [Satisfied with having fulfilled mysterious womanly demands Z moves on]*

Poll #480427 Romance

What are the ways you show romance to your partner?

What are the moving romantic things someone has done for you?




* NB, Z claims that people are not romantic when they are preoccupied with digesting 13" of pizza**
**N would like to note that she has not noticed a change even when seeing the man before dinner.

No relationships were harmed in the making of these polls

I'm not really a minimalist but I liked that answer so much that I had to tick it. Splendid poll!

He's a bit too fat but he's genuinely trying to do something about it.

He's an example to us all and should turn his journal into a 10 Steps To A More Romantic You self-help guide.
