Down with Romance!
Because we don't have the time or the energy.
There will be those women who'll read this and conclude that we've gotten lazy, lame or some combination of the two. Never mind that we're busier than we've ever been-- both sexes, mind you-- and that everything, even love, is being downsized in a slow economy.
CBS Sunday Morning News said that even French men are losing their sense of romance. One woman interviewed said that modern French men are "cowards" when it comes to dating-- guess they're not so different from American women who like to sit around waiting for love to manifest itself.
Look, all that romance shit from the past is pure nostalgia. Your grandmother had less rights, less education and had only bullshit activities like being on the county fair committee to keep her sanity-- and your grandfather probably still cheated and drank more than she could stand. How's that for "golden"?
I'm not saying that all is lost, just that you women need to quit with the "romance is dead" refrain. I still need historical proof that it actually lived, one hundred percent pure... uncorrupted. Otherwise we're not going to Nobu. It's Redbox and Chinese food and then later the best sex you've ever had (with me)!
