There is no doubt romance plays a very important role in a healthy relationship.

But most people tend to think differently about romance. Generally, they don’t have an exact idea of what actually is. There are so many myths or misconceptions that are related to romance.

Misconceptions about Romance

1. Saying "I love you" is enough:

Everyone likes to hear the phrase "I love you" but what about romance? Most people think that if they saying I love you to their partner, it means they are romantic enough but it’s not true.

To be a romantic person, saying "I love you" is not enough, you have to put some extra effort to make your partner happy. Keep in mind actions are more effective than your words.

2. Sex and romance are the same things:

This is one of the greatest misconceptions about romance, around 80-90% of people think that romance and sex are the same things. It is completely wrong that when you have sex, then you are considered a romantic person.

The truth is that romance is the state of mind to share your feelings or emotions with each other and sex is a mostly physical thing. So sex and romance are not the same things because romance is mental foreplay and sex is physical foreplay.

3. Being romantic is a genetic thing:

Generally, people think that romance is a genetic thing. It is a quality that people can earn from their birth. Romance is not something you can learn from any school or class.

But the reality is romance is a skill, anyone can learn from their surroundings by using books, magazines, or watching videos. One of the greatest strengths of being romantic is, the more you romanticize with your partner, the better your relationship.

4. Being romantic requires money:

In today’s society, most people think, the more money you have in your bank account, you easily prove that you are a romantic person.

But the truth is you don’t need money to prove to yourself because romance is all about expressing or understanding the other person's feelings.

By spending money, does not prove that you are a romantic person but how much you trust, respect, care, and worry about your partner makes you a romantic person.

5. Romance is not important:

It is always important that you give priority to your daily routine but it doesn’t mean that you should forget about romance. Nowadays, people treat romance as not a priority in a relationship and that it is useless. 

So change your thinking if you want to cement your relationship with your partner for a long-lasting one, so give them some time in your busy schedule.

6. Gits and flowers always work:

There is no doubt that giving gifts and flowers to your partner and makes them happy. It is one of the best ideas but it doesn’t always work. You have to try something new and unique ways to share your feeling with your partner and prove how romantic you are.

Go on dates, spend quality time with each other. 

7. Romance needs a lot of time:

Many people are not showing interest to express their romantic skills because they think it requires a lot of time and effort, so they are unable to show interest but the reality is romance does no require special time and effort.

I am not telling you to spend all of your time on romance. But maybe when you have time on your hands, then you can get romantic!

8. Romance needs a lot of effort:

There is no perfect formula for showing romance. Simple things do the trick such as, calling or texting your partner to show how much you miss them. 

Write a love note to your partner and share your feelings with them. 

9. Romance is a women-only topic:

Many people think that it’s a woman’s responsibility to be romantic in a relationship, but this is not true.

In a relationship, if you really want to cement romance, you need to work as a team and put in equal efforts to increase the romance in your relationship.


Getting into relationships is very easy but maintaining them is difficult, you need a lot of effort, hard work, trust, love, and romance. After reading this you have good clarity about being romantic.
