Act of romance
Acts of romance include the following:
- Holding hands
- Being faithful
Such romantic acts are not necessarily done because you care for them—a large part of romantic acts is to make them desire you back sexually and romantically more to fulfill your sexual and romantic fantasies with them.
Such acts of romance are largely manipulative instead of genuine. This is why people get heartbroken or betrayed after a break-up. After a break-up, reality strikes in and people realize that the "romantic love" is fake.
