You’re a romantic at heart! You enjoy doting upon your partner, holding on to meaningful keepsakes and honoring the romantic moments in your life. You believe in the power of love, and you clearly place a great deal of emphasis on creating romantic and meaningful experiences for yourself and your partner. With this is mind, it’s not surprising that others may come to you for romantic advice and suggestions. In fact, your passion for passion is truly inspiring for others.

In the future, remain open to the possibility of love. However, it’s important to remember that you shouldn’t set your expectations so high that you never feel satisfied with the romance you have around you. Since you’re not starring in a romantic movie, be careful not to let your expectations be so elevated that they surpass reality. Your partner may not show up in a horse-drawn carriage to escort you to a ball, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a ball together and enjoy a real fairytale romance.

You’re definitely a romantic person, and while your head may sometimes be in the clouds, your feet are still firmly planted on the ground. You’re able to enjoy the benefits of romance without getting bogged down by impossible standards only reserved for movies. You use pet names, try to hold on to keepsakes and place some emphasis on the romantic moments in your life, but you go for the realistic over the idealistic. You don’t have a romanticized vision of romance, and it plays a healthy role in your life.

While it’s important to not get lost in fantasies, don’t be afraid to push the romance envelope. For instance, dinner and a movie may be your ideal anniversary date, but why not take it a step further and give your partner a truly unique gift to accompany your night, such as a photo album of the two of you, a book featuring works of his or her favorite artist or a handwritten, heartfelt card? You can look for new ways to make romance a top priority without going over the top.

You’re not a very romantic person, and it’s clear that you don’t place a great deal thought on creating romantic experiences or having lovey-dovey moments with your partner. However, this doesn’t mean that romance doesn’t play some role in your life. First, it’s important to understand that you’re deserving of romance, and once you believe that you’re worthy of having these experiences, you’ll be able to see the value that romance can bring into your life.

If you’re looking to add more romance going forward, take baby steps and look for opportunities to surprise your partner with gestures of affection. Surprise your partner by filling their car with gas, doing their laundry or helping them with a work problem. Even providing a shoulder to cry on can be a romantic gesture, as it’s an act of compassion that’s increasing the intimacy levels between you and your partner. Remember, romance doesn’t have to be some overblown production—small moments of care can make a huge impact.

You’re not a romantic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be one in the future. It’s evident that you don’t find significance in anniversaries or keepsakes—that’s not your style, and it’s normal to feel this way. However, you should ask yourself why you’re cutting yourself off to romance. Are you truly against it, or does being vulnerable sound scary? Or do you find it embarrassing to engage in lovey-dovey behaviors? There’s also the possibility that you’ve been burned before, and you may feel that romance isn’t an option for you—which is simply untrue.

Once you look more closely at the reasons behind your anti-romantic feelings, you can decide if you’d like to change. While you don’t have to be some Casanova, make sure that your lack of interest in romance isn’t closing you off to the possibility of love. Being a romantic doesn’t mean you have to set ridiculous expectations for yourself, but it does mean you should stay true to who you are while still opening yourself up to love.
