Each of us has to define love for ourselves. In my opinion love is an emotional feeling of attachment. To love someone is to not to want to be without them in your life.
Romantic gestures may stir up the emotional feelings in a person and cause them to want to spend more time with an individual. However romance in and of itself is not the "feeling/love". It's the key that starts the ignition but it's not the engine. Lots of people love others who are unromantic.
