Ideally, when women think of romance, they think of the knight in shining armour bearing roses and chocolates. When you think about it, it is a very high expectation set of men and an immense pressure to get it right. When men think of romance, they think of escaping from the ordinary and focusing on the passion between them.

However, romance need not be the sole responsibility of the man in the relationship, but is ultimately the responsibility of both. Nor should it feel like a burden or an unrewarded effort to put romance on the priority list in a relationship.
