What is true romanticism? Is it what is advertised by companies in order to get us to spend money on flowers and chocolates in the hopeless ideal that spending money on gifts will make someone fall in love with us?.
There are plenty of jerks of each sex out there.Is it not the case that advertisers now inform us all of what the perfect partner should be, if female; blonde, thin, large bust and great between the sheets, and if male muscle bound, tall, solvent,successful and also great between the sheets. If you doubt pick up and men's magazine and any women's magazine and you will see what the perfect specimen of human nature is supposed to look like.
Is it any wonder then when reality strikes that we all find out that no one is perfect. What is important is that we are not perfect but that we are perfect for each other. Imperfections and all.

Research examines how social multi-tasking affects mood and social connection.
