Who Ever said "Romance is Dead"?
In case no one has told you yet..."Happy Romance Month!" You'd think that as a nation, we'd be a little less stressed out if we celebrated half the special days and holidays that have been created. For example, did you know that in addition to Romance Awareness month, August is also; admit you're happy month, national eye exam month, national golf month, family fun month, national blueberry month, national Catfish month and national picnic month? Me either.
Well, since this is a "dating" site, we'll focus on Romance Awareness month this time and since this is also a "multicultural" dating site, the question on my mind is, do you think one race is "more romantic" than another? Now I'll answer for myself but I really want to hear what you've got to say, cause truth be told, Leticia is only one woman and although I have no issue dating every ethnicity known to man, there is just not enough time in my day. So, let's start with what I've heard.
I've heard that black guys are not very romantic just highly sexual and yes, there is a difference. If you are Italian or Spanish hands down romance appears to be in your blood and well white guys fall somewhere in the middle. Now my experience tells me a little different.

What are you looking for?
When I was in college during a trip to Italy, my roommate and I met a couple of Italian guys in Rome. Perhaps time was the issue, only time for making out in front of a church and missing the curfew at the youth hostel. Not very romantic, but I did find my Italian stud to be filled with passion and excitement. Now in Florence it appeared to be the same zest and love of life that attracted this young guy to me. He followed me around the train station speaking in Italian confessing his love for me and my beauty. Having only taken two years of Spanish, my translator was this African guy that was smitten with my roommate. While I was trying to hide from my little Italian suitor, he was busy trying to talk my roommate into coming to his county and even though they were "different shades of brown", he would be able to convince his family to take her in...(he probably thought he was being romantic).
Just when I thought I was safe from my Italian stallion, I turned a corner and all I saw was a tongue coming straight toward my face. As my roommate and I boarded the train two hours later, he was still there waving goodbye. Now if you take away my absolute fear and utter disgust (he was NOT my type), that would have been very romantic situation to me.
Now I'm sure that we all have our own ideas of what romance is. For some it's the candles, flowers and slow music. For others its time spent attention given. I once had a boyfriend pack my lunch for work and when I opened the bag, he had cut off the bread ends (I don't like them), and put in a little note saying have a great day. I've also had the blindfold, car ride that led to a secluded spot with the rose petals in the bath and all my favorite things prepared just for me. These guys just happened to be black. So, I guess that's why I'm asking what your experience has been, because I can't call it. It seems that if given the time and opportunity all my guys of different nationalities have been romantic in their own way. Not enough for me to say one over the other.
Whatever your preference is when it comes to dating and no matter what your idea of romance is. Be sure to celebrate it this month and the next and the next. While you're at it... you should go ahead and "admit you're happy and take the family out for some fun, have everyone's eyes examined, then go out for a round of golf (miniature acceptable), and wrap up the day with a great big picnic with blueberry's and catfish".
Celebrate life and I bet you...romance will be in the air.
