“A love story is not about those who lose their heart but about those who lose their heart but about those who find that sullen inhabitant who, when it is stumbled upon, means the body can fool no one, can fool nothing- not the wisdom of sleep or the habit of social graces. It is a consuming of oneself and the past.” We all have been guilty of indulging into a spell of romance novels, coffees, and dreams at some point of time or the other. And if you haven’t included reading romance novels in your daily to-do, read on to find out why people love romance novels.
Well, the obvious reason is that romance novels are a free license to dream. It is very easy to put yourself in the shoes of the characters, to get involved in their worries and to get awed by their love. Stuck in a relationship with a guy who absolutely doesn’t care about you? Well, look into your favorite novel and you’re sure to find the man of your dreams.
So, it follows that romance novels are an excellent means of escapism. As soon as you turn the first page of the novel, you’re completely soaked into the world of these make-believe characters. The world around you ceases to exist and all your worries are pushed back to the back of your mind. This is exactly why people often get addicted to romance novels and cannot absolutely imagine a day without reading one.
And, let’s admit it guys. A lot of our knowledge about love is from the romance novels we read. But that doesn’t always have to be a bad thing. If we expect the guy to open the doors for us (because we read romance novels), it is because we’re entitled to. And if the world around isn’t like the world we read about, it really needs to set its goals right. And who says the guy needs to open the doors? There are plenty of modern romance novels where the girl is capable of doing everything from opening doors to ruling the world all by herself.
So, throw away all your skepticism and grab a romance novel right away. Still now convinced? Read these lines by Nicholas Spark and then dare to tell me that you don’t like romance novels.
“I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who’s ever lived: I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough.”
