My blog doesn't usually tackle the topic of romance, but I was thinking about the kind of romances I do like and thought I'd mention them. My vision of romance tends to look like this:
Whether the romance is a lifechanging adventure with someone unforgettable, or a lasting bond that echoes off the walls of time, it's all about the connection between the characters. The characters should both be whole people, not half-selves that become whole only when they're together. The relationship should be a choice, not a compulsion, and should be built on mututal respect as well as attraction.
That's my geeky romance thought for the day. Props to anyone who knows the third couple or the tv show they're from.
