Whether you buy into them or not, the five love languages make us think about the ways we want to be loved — by a partner or otherwise.

What’s more romantic than warm morning cuddles and soft hugs? If your love language is physical touch, very few things surpass casual shoulder squeezes. But perhaps, one might agree that there is an inherent sexiness in a crisp, well-bound book.

Through his rose-tinted looking glass,

Blinders fashioned from

Bouquets

Jewels

Promises.

The delusions of a romantic —

Is this sincerity?
