Throughout the ages, people have been both inspiring and inspired by romance. And why not, it usually comes with a sensuous and tender love. Romance lovers devour stories and movies about love. They follow the relationships of celebrities, as if they were friends, because it’s wonderful when love works. Most people go out of their way to invite love into their lives. They will dress to attract others and spray themselves with perfume in the hopes that they will become more attractive. Romantic fashion certainly exists.
