Is Romance dead?

“People are way too narcissistic and obsessed with FALSE self images and false idols to realize the Truth of Who They Are or anyone else is.

Love and romance imply action – an action which inherently requires one to be Present, living in the eternal Now. Nobody does this anymore, and I fear soon enough people will stop reproducing out of self-obsession and spite.”

– Paul Hopkins

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    Interesting, yes, romance is in point of fact dead. It died when society opted for reality based on what’s on the ‘screen’ and chose that over human interaction, hence we pretend to be Rock Hudson and Doris Day, or Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for you young folk,instead of John and Jane Nobody, all the while failing to see the stupidity of pretense when obviously if only we were ourselves, bearing roses, wine and chocolate would be sufficient! Romance dies regularly whenever two people do that ‘mating dance’ called compliance
