Do you remember the Wikipedia's definition of romance we discussed yesterday? It defined ROMANCE as the "expressive and pleasurable feeling from an emotional attraction towards another person associated with LOVE." Love. For tonight's blog we are going to focus on what motivates romance- Love.
One of my favorite Scriptures in the bible is 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. It describes love as patient, kind, bearing all things, believing all things, hoping all things, and enduring all things. It concludes with "Love Never Fails." Then there is Colossians 3:14 that perfectly starts our conversation by declaring that "Love is a Perfect Bond of Union."
LOVE is the motivation for romance and ROMANCE is the motivation for love. When you love someone you want to do things for them to show how much you care for them, how much you appreciate them, and how much you desire them to remain in your life. You want them to know how much you LOVE them through your ACTIONS.
Romance is also motivated by mutual attraction and genuine interest in someone. When you want to get to know someone, date them, court them, and possibly form a love connection, you do things to get their attention, keep them interested and form a memorable bond. Your actions show each stage of your emotions. Being ROMANTIC is one way to capture the attention of someone you are interested in pursuing an intimate relationship with.
We've already established that ROMANCE is not a mystery. Its alive and possible to achieve. When you mix interest, attraction, desire to please and LOVE you have a perfect blend of reasons or motivators to be romantic.
Remember that one of the Romantic Traits is "loving" so in order to be loving towards someone you have to love or have an emotional connection towards a special someone. Now some of you may say that you can be romantic with someone without loving them, but I doubt that you are going to put a lot of TIME and EFFORT into someone you are not attracted to or have some connection with.
That being said, with LOVE as a motivator for romance and ROMANCE being motivated by love, you can't go wrong. You have a solid foundation established now to begin (or refresh) your romantic journey. I hope that this post has you thinking of that someone special in your life that deserves a little romance and I hope that you're enjoying what you're reading so far and sharing it with others.
