Finding love and staying in love has changed its meaning in the recent times. We live in a time where love and lovers are just a ‘swipe’ away. Nevertheless, there are some of us out there who still believe in the idea of nurturing, emotional and fulfilling kind of love and are called – Old School Romantics.
Being a 90’s kid, I have grown up in a time where I have seen the shift of dating from that ‘cute romantic dinner dates with your loved one’ to those ‘dates with the ones who matched on your profile on Tinder’… all in the name of finding love.
While there is nothing wrong in experiencing dating via apps but let’s be honest, the charm of old school romance is unmatchable. Also because of the fact that it is so rare to find people who actually value and appreciate it.
I for one, am a COMPLETE Old School Romantic at heart! Candle light dinners, long walks, holding hands, unexpected kisses, kisses on forehead and what not! I am all for it!
So I thought of listing a few very peculiar old school romantic traits that I have and see how many people resonate with me.
‘I am an old school romantic in a world of online dating and hook ups’.
‘I am a make love type of person in a world of wham-bam-thank you-mam’.
