Where Did True Romance Go?

Ladies and gentlemen, romance is no more, all because of thechnology. Let me take time to explain. There was a time, before we took to learning foreign languages and foreign manners, when you had to be a real poet, with an excellent communication ability to win the hand, and heart oif the girl you loved. You needed patience too. That it could take years was not the issue.

Then came the time when we started going to school, There were no telephones then, but we could write something crude. Remember those letters, which would be perfumed, with some powder sprinkled? Complete with a heart and arrow plus initials I.H.OL.L.A.N.D, OR I.TA.L.Y and many others? And the girl would then embroider a handkerchief with some very nice words of love.

The letters were a collectors item. Just ask your mum or dad. The handkerchiefs were treasured gifts. And the dates were confined to the nearest football field on saturdays. Those were the days when we described our loved ones as being as ripe as sweet potatoes, as plump as a pumpkin, or as sweet as sugarcane, as brown as a ripe mango, poetry at it's best.

Then came along e mails and sms. So what do we have now? A quick note in very funny language. No more poetry. And the girls do not even wait. They will tell you what they want instead. Or just come to your house uninvited at night! Or simply tell you how much they love you on internet even before they have met you! And they expect you to have some posh car and take them to the best places!

I leave the rest to you.

Old school it may be, but it was the best, and still is. And it is honest

@ Post, yeah! You're damn right! Little did we know that those

funny and scanty sms do not really portray that vibes anymore

unlike the love letters of yesteryear's.

@ Topic,

Yes I agree. In fact, it is my belief that as people become more technologically advanced, we actually regress in many aspects of life. Like, when you look backwards in time many things were so much better including the music, romance, ideas of unity and progression amongst African peoples, people's overall strength, moralsand virtue, Even technology itself, i.e. the cars, musical equipment, and the architecture and stuff. I can't really articulate what I am trying to say very well, but I am sure you know what I mean,

The rhythm of romance has changed and its better than what our parents had

May be you are not up to date

I could not have wished to live in a better time than now

Romance is about creativity

I always leave an impression and a vacuum no one can fill

Try to be creative and you will understand what i mean

i totally agree with you man,most women go after money,not as if it is not good to have someone who is rich but it should not be the deciding factor,i am afraid to love cuz i can't just find someone that love me for who i am and not for money.
