Are You Aware of the 10 Biggest Romance Myths? Relationship & Dating Advice
 By Joshua Goh

It does not matter whether you have over 25 years experience an aging one or many relationships or a novice in this zone, each one of us have our own ideas of Romance.

The definitions are as diverse as the person whose idea it is. Every relationship starts with romance, but somewhere in between life with its banalities come in the way.
