Do you believe romance is beautiful?

Thumbnail avatar 29d6ade36f

I know most SAMBers are against romance or they find it disgusting, but I'm against that.

I think I'm the only SAMBer who believes that romance is one of the most beautiful things in the world.

Honestly, when I hear, "Ew! Romance!" I think that something is dying on the SAMB.

If you don't like it, then don't. I'm just saying that the attitude we have on the SAMB toward romance is just immature, and we need to grow up and accept that it's a part of life and some of us are fans of romance movies/music. We are building a reputation for ourselves that makes us out to be a population of immature fangirls. Now I'm not saying that's a bad thing, but often I hear conversation like "Ew! I hate romance!" and "I prefer action over boring romance!" I absolutely HATE this opinion. Yes, action is a nice world in itself, but romance? Sure, it might be a little sappy, but it isn't boring! Romance is an expression of feeling, an act of love.

 

If you resent this, fine. I don't care at all.

I'm just against books labeled as fantasy when their plot is based on romance. 

But yes, Cleo, you do have a good point. I'm grey-romantic and I agree. Crushes are one thing and romance is another. Without romance, all you guys wouldn't be here.

*sits down* 

 

I'm not opposed to romance. Really, I'm not. However, I do hate it when young people try to make their friendships into romantic ones because that's what "teenagers" do. "Dating" in eighth grade is, in my opinion, still a little pointless, but I know many people disagree with me. I'll see boys buying their girlfriends chocolate on Valentines, and think "Do they really mean this, or are they being told by pop culture that this is what you do?" Because so much of media is filled with sappy romance novels, pictures, TV shows, ect. Love is a wonderful thing, but it shouldn't be used lightly. Real life love does not mean being all over each other 24/7, and being extreme drama queens all the time. I think 8th Grade dating is still too young, but barely. However, I don't agree with some people in our grade who started in 3rd Grade. 3RD GRADE. I mean...what? Like, what can you even do then? In 8th Grade, you can at least do some things together, but in 3rd you can what? Hug? 

 

I hate relationships that are ruined when the boy and girl decide that if they're friends, they have to date. And because of the world we live in, they will eventually break up in the most dramatic way possible. And BOOM, in two weeks flat a great friendship is destroyed. I am good friends with many boys, and I never feel the need to date any of them. Maybe when I'm older I'll feel differently, but I don't need to rush to get there. Your significant other should be someone you really like, not just because they are good looking, but because you are good friends, and unpressurized by everyone else. That's good. Pretending to be in a soap opera is not. 

 

I guess it just comes down to the maturity level. I have two good friends who are dating each other. They are mature enough, and I support them 100%. In fact, I'm their official 3rd Wheel Friend. :) They see dating like it should be- an opportunity to hang out with your best friend and get to know them better. 

 

Ok. That's my view on it.

Honestly I think most people confuse some things. Being ace I know for a fact, a romantic relationship doesn't mean everything some people think it means. It's just being emotionally close to someone in a non-plantionic way. What you want in a romantic relationship isn't your sexuality, that's different. In LGBT+ you have gender, sexuality and romantic spectrum. I don't mind romance but only when it's not confused with sexuality. And that's coming from an aromantic person

I agree. I had a huge crush on a boy a few years ago and whenever I saw him, even though I very rarely had enough confidence to talk to him, I got an amazing feeling. I actually felt really happy and excited. Sometimes I felt that way just thinking or talking about him. I know that crushes are different than romance. I'm not sure if I've ever experienced actual romance. I don't think I have. But I'm just saying that having a huge crush on someone is wonderful, even if it takes forever to talk to them. Love is so complicated, though. Even I know that, and that's saying something, because compared to everyone else ont he MB, I'm a complete newbie at romance.

I have two different opinions on romance. First off, I absolutely adore when characters fall in love. I basically go complete fangirl. And some friends, I support their relationships, because it works. Even some of the "popular" people I support it. When their boyfriend stuffed a three foot tall teddy bear in their locker for their birthday, is say that's a good relationship. However, I don't believe that kids should date until at least high school, and even then it's early. My other friend is in a good relationship also. (Banana) When we prank called her boyfriend saying she was in the hospital, he completely freaked out and tried to find out what hospital she was in so he could visit her. Plus, when she told him it was a prank, he got completely mad that we had worried him like that. Those type of relationships I approve of.

 

And then there's my friend Raseberry. She has dated so many people, it's actually scary. Last year, she dated Lemon. At this time, clearly, the fruit nicknames were given, so their ship name was Raseberry Lemonade. She broke up with him over the summer because they'd never see each other. Then, she briefly  dated her neighbor. Then, Strawberry Shortcakes cousin came to out school, and they're still dating. I was at that table yesterday, and what I see is a form of torture. She was pulling his sweatshirt hood up so he wouldn't slouch, and, when he wouldn't answer her questions, proceeded to step on his foot. This is not a normal relationship. 

 

And then, of course, I never want to be in a relationship, so that's why I do not participate in such matters.

I don't have a problem with romance itself. The problem is that in pop culture, women often are flung into relationships more often than men, which reinforces stereotypes.

I like romance just fine, in fact, I enjoy writing romance. But I haven't actually been in a relationship or even had a crush myself. In my school, people started 'dating' in fourth or fifth grade. My younger brother, who's in fourth grade himself, just witnessed these things, and apparently, his entire grade was freaked out, but they won't be for long(Basically, some kids got "married" then the girl "issued a divorce", then they were married again, then another divorce. It was very strange, from what I heard. But I think that my friend, the girl's older sister, stopped it.).

I do support healthy, happy relationships, where they're actually good friends. Another one of my friends skipped through boyfriends for a couple weeks, but then she actually found a good boyfriend, and I've seen them together. I wouldn't even consider them very romantic, but they're like best friends, and she actually kept a guy for a long time. I think that it'll go well until maybe next school year.

I'm in a sort of gray area. I dislike plots where the main focus is romance, but plots that I'm already invested in that have romance because the characters have chemistry is fine. Romance for the sake of romance in a story is one of my pet peeves.

I don't like how strong female protagonists always fall in love and need saving at the end. And I don't like how all women are expected to fall in love. I'm not going to. Ever.

 

Also, I don't like how people define romance as "love." That makes me always have to say "I DON'T MEAN IT LIKE THAT" whenever I say that I love someone.

 

You're allowed to have your own opinions, however, opinions that I will respect. If you think romance is beautiful, that's fine. I myself prefer reading and writing martial arts action.
