    I never thought of it like that before!

Another way of saying this..romantic gestures with the intent of being perceived as romantic gestures seem to me to be less romantic than those gestures that were not meant to be necessarily romantic, but are anyway.
    I consider romance to be organic in nature, not contrived [where contrived has no negative or positive value attached].

    Realistically, I've been in LTRs long enough to know that some level of contrivance is necessary in a world where it's too easy to get absorbed elsewhere... but overall, I don't really enjoy relationships where the conscious commitment is all that is driving the relationship. I expect that being with someone I truly love will have SOME degree of positive vibe coming back, where I want to be and enjoy being with them, and when I'm not, I feel a desire to share with them the things I've experienced while apart.

A spoonful a day may not keep the doctor away, but it keeps a smile on my face. Same can be said for the occasional indulgence in romance. Even so, you are right - a little bit goes a long way. If you ate the whole container, you may get sick.
    I'm one of those bad girls that buys a can of icing for $1.29 at the supermarket, tosses it in the fridge, and dips into it with a spoon whenever I need a quick zing.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    So, you're a romantic at heart!
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    But the best icing is homemade (probably like the best romance . . . )
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I usually scrape icing off cake or any other baked good. Way too sweet, chock full of empty calories and ruins the cake, that is except for a thin layer of cream cheese icing on carrot cake.

    Haha. And there you have the NT take on romance.

    Icing maybe pretty but adds no substance to the relationship!

    I disagree, but I thought your assessment was funny. I personally like a nice layer of icing on my cake. Romance is literally...icing on the cake. The cake is the foundation, the icing just makes it that much better and tastier. And without it, the cake is kind of "blah". Icing - nom nom nom.

    A little icing is fine. A lot leads to tooth decay, then abscess, then root canal!
