      Does getting a new vacuum for my wife on Christmas make me a romantic?  It has to be men - they buy such useful gifts, not just some expensive piece of jewelry or something to get all sloppy over. smile

      I don't think I'm really qualified enough to answer this question really objectively, as I've only ever been romantically attracted to women!  smile

      I do know that most men haven't got a clue on the subject though. 

      In my opinion, a majority of women need a romance that can be relied upon, is genuine and shows that they are genuinely appreciated, respected and understood. Being a friend and then being a 'lover' probably really comes after that... what the majority of men consider a 'friend' and 'lover' should be, usually varies enormously from what the majority of women want or need! 

      I'm pretty sure that if guys actually stopped thinking about what they (guys) want and started taking the time to consider how they are viewed through a woman's eyes, or even a few of the things mentioned here.. they may be half way towards being thought of as a romantic! 

      Don't take my word for it though, or rely so heavily on a box of chocolates and wilted flowers... maybe listen to the lyrics of a song called: 'To really love a woman' by Bryan Adams.. and start thinking with a different head... Ultimately, your personality and positive attitude are more important and that is should be your individual strength as it is what makes you unique! smile

        It all depends upon the individual person.  There are men who are highly romantic whereas there are women who could not care less about romance.   A particular gender does not have a monopoly on romance,    Romance depends upon the psychological composition of the individual person, not gender.

          Oh I'm sorry... I thought I actually said that!  You must have not understood what I was saying... I was giving an opinion, based on a pretty extensive experience and knowledge... were you attempting to demonstrate that 'I open my mouth and don't know what I'm talking about' or something? sad 
          Of course there are people out there who by choice, or circumstance, haven't got a clue... men and women... most of them end up single and the subject or being of romance is completely irrelevant! Perhaps, you have experienced that type of character in your life?  smile

            No.   I was just stating that gender is totally a nonissue regarding romance. I have met many men who could be classified as romantic and many women who could have care less about romance.    I was just responding to you.    You have elucidated some good points as usual.

      It really varies.  I think women prefer to have men be romantic, but when it comes down to it, they are less likely to be romantic themselves, because they are women and men {in general} will chase them and do things to attract them.

                I say, more often women are more romantic
                Women being more men's spiritual guilds and realationship sided.

                From personally experience, I'm more often romantic than them, and more often too sexy for them. Can't help it, being a little nutty emontional artist

    Men and women usually have opposite views of what romantic means. A man may think a bottle of scotch and a roll in the hay is romantic while a woman may like to be romanced with dinner at an exclusive restaurant and dancing in a nightclub.
    The key is to find someone that thinks as you do, no matter what the gender. wink

    In my experience, it can be either one. But I think women are more romantic since it seems they surround themselves with that type of environment (Romance novels, baths with candles, etc). I think that women though expect men to be more romantic, but most aren't. I think communication here is key.

    Really depends. If you are saying in terms of romantic emotional display, I think women are definitely more romantic in that way. But, if you are talking about just doing something for someone because you are romantic, I think men are more romantic in that way. For me, I am romantic by nature, but it never ever shows up on m face. But, I do everything necessary to show that I love that person.

    Stacie L makes a good point  and I agree that men and women are inclined to harbor  different views of what romance is. But getting to the question at hand: I don't believe that one gender is more romantic than the other. I think it boils down to the individual; their psychological and emotional background and framework, etc., and this becomes a very complex mix of very subjective factors; one of which is defining romanticism. Good question!

    No doubt–MEN ARE MORE ROMANTIC! I think because men are more romantic than women they tend to be a little more careful, and slower than women, in expressing their feelings, but if the man cares for the woman YES–men are definitely more romantic. Because men are sensitive they guard their feelings with silence or show us glimpses of how they feel, rather than revealing it all heart open, out of fear of being rejected, or not getting the reciprocation they desire. Men love deeply. It may be in a slightly different way than women, and they may view love through a different lens, so to speak, but the difference is there by cosmic design and maybe we should think about that. When men love they feel vulnerable and they dislike admitting they are not always as confident as they would like to appear. Men enjoy being the conquering hero. They observe. Men will talk about their feelings, and express them, when they are ready.

    Remember, love finds a way. It has been so since the beginning.

    I think women are more romantic. We talk about relationships more, whereas men do not, or talk less romantically. Women can handle romance and things like shopping flowers, picking colours for a room, furnishings, clothes... so many things. We women vote so much by their feelings and go by what is in our hearts.

    Women take the lead a lot in relationships with guys. Women also relate to everything more. I think a lot of women dearly wished guys could be more switched on when it comes to romance...

      Im sure many of you have heard of "love languages" there are 5 of them that we humans seem to subscribe to. Mine is quality time... so if a man buys me jewelry, he may be thinking he's being very romantic when baubles actually mean very little to me. A man who wants to be with me, who wants to laugh and do simple things like watch movies or talk or just be close... that is my love language... that is romance to me. So I guess it would depend not so much on who makes the most gestures, as are we making the right gestures of love for the person we're with. At least that's my opinion. smile

    I think women are less romantic, yet they have an image of how they want to be romanced.  I think when a woman can sit back and strip away any bias she has on what  she think constitutes romance, she will find that men can quite often be the more romantic creature.  Based on my life, my husband is incredibly romantic in his own way. I've learn to appreciate that when he grabs my plate and starts washing the dishes even after he's had a 16 hour day that's his way of being romantic.

    I think we can't say it, because sex varies person to person. Sometimes, women irritates saying and expressing love and sex, but its not the overall analysis and fact. I think both are romantic and it depends upon person to person.

    I feel like men are more romantic than women. When we get married we marry, like, one girl, 'cause we're resistant the whole way until we meet one girl and we think I'd be an idiot if I didn't marry this girl she's so great. But it seems like girls get to a place where they just kinda pick the best option... 'Oh he's got a good job.' I mean they spend their whole life looking for Prince Charming and then they marry the guy who's got a good job and is gonna stick around.

    I think that women tend to be technically more romantic. They grow up reading fairytales and watching romantic movies. They can end up with and idea in their minds of what romance should be. But, really romance is different for everyone. For me, my husband cooking or doing the dishes so I don't have to is romantic. But, another woman might need flowers, jewelry and candle light to consider it true romance.

    Guy's views on romance is usually a little different. They view the little things as romantic. They don't generally feel that they need to do over the top things to be romantic.

    Until days ago, I would have answered without hesitation "it is women who are more romantic", but now I feel not sure. Men may show romantic feeling in different way, because God give them more duties than romance.
