Romance is fake.
Ahhhh, don’t get me wrong; what I mean is its theatre.
The rose petals and sparkling candles are supposed to be over the top because the whole thing is a show.
There are little clues like red roses and strawberries and champagne. If you spot the clues you have to jump into the conspiracy.
Once you figure that out – that it’s romantical theatre – you can enjoy it more because it’s supposed to be fun! It doesn’t matter that it’s fake. It’s about a mood of wafting around wearing characters and showing love through over doing it.
It works if you go all in.
