Context

The Argument

Many relationships undoubtedly begin with romantic gestures. However, gestures don't equate to love. Once the romance dies down and the members of the relationship have settled into a groove, the romance usually fades away. Love still thrives after the romance is gone making them two mutually exclusive things.
