Romance , from Latin romanice, is a concept with several uses linked to the field of linguistics and the literature . In colloquial language, however, the word allows reference to the temporary or informal love relationships . For example: “The actress lives a passionate romance with a man twenty years younger than her”, “I had an affair with a Chilean on summer vacations”, "It's been a long time since I've had an affair".
Among the various genders of literature and cinema is the Romantic, which refers to a love relationship, usually between two heterosexual people. While it is impossible to frame certain stories in a single genre, those that spin the plot around the privacy of two individuals who fall in love often receive the label of romantic, with all that this entails at the cultural level.
In general, films and books with this type of subject are considered only women are interested; This thought, of a macho nature and not part of any kind of thorough and realistic study of society, overlooks that millions of women dedicate their lives, for example, to medicine, music, teaching, sports and to journalism, all these professions that men also exercise and that require great dedication to study and constant preparation in areas that are not necessarily related to makeup, expensive clothes and seduction.
As if this vision were no longer narrow enough, the generalized conception of romance has as protagonists a man and a woman, generally in good physical shape and with conventionally attractive features. Where are the homosexuals? Also, can't a man and a woman of normal aspects, with normal bodies, live a passionate romance?

He insists on transmitting a message of little commitment, emotional distance, which can only lead to one of two possible outcomes: divorce or unhappiness.
A love relationship that begins based on physical attraction and does not seek to nourish the emotional plane, does not have many possibilities to last or, at least, to enrich their protagonists.
