Absence sharpens love, presence strengthens it.
The quote above is by Thomas Fuller who was a clergyman and an author. We always say that when the person we love is missing or is away, the love we possess for the individual increases tenfold. However, what many of us overlook is how it's presence helps strengthens the bond.
There are times when words seem to fail you each time. And, there are moments when you wish you can say something sweet and romantic to the one you love. What happens when both these situations come at you at the same time? You can't just keep mum and have your nervousness or shyness keep you from wanting to express yourself. This brings me to the point that I was trying to make. If you're someone who can't seem to come up with things to say on your own, don't feel shy or weird in taking someone else's words. In the following article, we have a compilation of amazing, funny romantic quotes that will help you get through that first date. Try them out as perfect ice breaker conversations.
