Romance and Love an essay When I was assigned this topic to write about I immediately thought of Eros The ancient Greek word that describes the romantic side of love Philos and Agape are really more spiritual in nature but Eros now thats a physical love I envision Eros as the sweaty fumbling in the back of old Chevrolets and the firelit evenings where everything seems to go just right and the sex is perfect And even in the dark rent by the hour hotel rooms where men and women with no names briefly join and then quickly part never knowing the other persons name All of these things are Eros to me All of these things while they might seem repulsive to you are actually romantic to some The actual definition of romance has been significantly altered in the minds of men as time progressed The original definition of romance is a fiction a falsehood a love affair Now I am sure that you all know that everyone has a different definition of love Some see love as being able to endure me some see love as being able to please me and others see love as being able to obey me All of these are true to some and violently wrong to others but that is the beauty of love it is available to all Romance is therefore a relative thing The fact is that romance or Eros is different things to different people To me romance is a fleeting thing It is a step towards a better thing towards love that isnt physical Romance epitomizes the best and worst of love It is a thing that I at once desire and despise I suppose that I will eventually get ensnared in its web I can only hope that the nectar that it feeds me will be sweet enough to offset the acrid aftertaste of the inadequacy of romance as a substitute
