Romance, Anyone?
 
when we satisfy our partners’
unspoken needs or desires,
we get a soulful kiss, for we’re romantic
but when the action is prompted,
or heaven forbid, it’s been requested –
no rewards await, for we weren’t psychic
 
our girlfriends want a bouquet of flowers
every single day of the year
yet won’t admit that they do –
(you have to be a psychic, remember?)
or truffles, a box of Godiva preferably
and a card proclaiming to the world “I love you”!
 
our sweethearts would like us
to open doors for them, and hold their hands
in short, preserve the age of chivalry...
they’d love to get notes each day
love notes, romantic poems and such
even when such things, to men, are a mystery
 
that said, romance makes the flowers bloom
and makes all relationships
satisfying, fruitful, meaningful, enjoyable!
sadly, men have a very different outlook,
quite another concept of romance
and usually, that spells trouble!
 
it’s a fact, men are wired differently,
for we are brutes; we’re modern-day Neanderthals!
and we have romance and sex all mixed up...
simply put, romantic can be a naked cheerleader,
or seeing our lovers in a skimpy red negligee!
romantically, that ranks near the very top
 
our sweethearts love candlelit dinners
with soulful Barry White in the background
while engaged in hush-hush conversation
meanwhile men want the time to zoom by
the seconds and the minutes to fly...
for the bedroom awaits, for the real action
 
for our significant others, romance means
physical affection without sex, cuddling
hugs, kisses and meaningful conversation!
and yeah! when you meet her relational needs
with care and tenderness– that’s romantic!!!
to the winds, she’d throw away all caution
 
so fellow men, the important message is this:
it’s a misconception romance can be infrequent
and a relationship will still remain strong
no! for romance is the refreshing shower; the glue
that bonds man to his woman on a daily basis...
and truly, a romantic man can do no wrong!
 
it matters not whether we have different
outlooks or divergent concepts
as long as we both believe in romance—
what’s paramount is that men understand
that their partners speak a different language
then work hard to translate at every chance
 
whenever we are romantic, or behave that way
we communicate a unique value
to our partners, our significant others
for we perform an action that says
they’re always in our hearts! every moment!
then be ready to receive the worlds’ wonders

I agree with you 100% Us men try to rush things too much.

This was great Vic! I think we could also write an advice piece for women too. We have a hard time reading the minds of men at times and often misread because we view things so differently. Like when the man always wants to fix things we don't want fixed...Hahaha!

Maybe you could write one from a woman's perspective!

Thanks for liking/faving.

My wife used to get mad at me when I didn't do what she thought I should. How was I supposed to know what she wanted if she didn't tell me? I used to say, "Sorry dear, My ESP isn't working today."

I laughed out loud while reading this Vic (lol) . It's so very true. You added a lot of humor to this. You can get on a womans good side by being romantic, We like romance, That's why we like romantic movies and stories, and yes we do like a romantic significant other. Ha haaa.
