Romance can lead to sex, but it isn't the same thing. Romantic words, body language, and actions send a message that you desire your partner, but also that you care, that you are thinking of the other person, and that you want him or her to feel special and valued.
For some people, romantic feelings toward a partner are necessary before they can experience sexual desire.
When stress and daily pressures start to pile up, romance can sometimes seem hard to create. Simple gestures -- a gentle touch, a smile, stopping what you're doing to welcome the other person home, performing a household chore the other person hates -- can often be more romantic than expensive gestures.
