Sex & the Single Woman: Grand Gestures of Emotion

We have all seen romantic movies in which the boy gathers up his courage and does the one thing he know will win over the girl. It works, and the two live happily ever after.

Why is it not like this in real life? I am not rubbing elbows with the right guys or is romance dead?

Is it possible that perhaps theses grand gestures of emotion are completely unrealistic? I know that romance is completely possible without them, it just seems like it would be so much more exciting with them.

What about you? Do you believe in grand gestures of emotion?
