So, the 8th question is “Can dating kill romance? ”

1) Author #1 : Chloe S. Flanagan

Dating helps two people get to know each other. Without that, I think romance is fleeting. 

2) Author #2: Olena Kagui

While dating can be super romantic, it can definitely kill it too. The expectations, the boring first date conversations that one is expected to cover before they get to the juicy stuff… There’s also the pressure for every date to be better than the next which can also dampen the romance. If done right however, dating can be totally romantic and sometimes I wish I could experience that again!

3) Author #3: Angela Breen

I suppose if you do anything hoping for a result and never get that result long enough it could kill the hope. If you date person after person and nothing ever comes of it, it would be hard to carry on. 

4) Author #4: Victoria Spencer

I have no idea what this means! I’ve also gone on very few dates, but I’m pretty sure if something as simple as a date kills the romance, there were already bigger issues.

5) Author #5: Erin Lynne 

I wish the answer was no, but sometimes a bad break up can scar someone. This is when a person really needs all sorts of romance in their life.

6) Author #6: Victoria Grant

Nooooooo!! I believe it’s the other way around – dating should enhance the romance! Dating is the perfect opportunity to show your partner how creative, thoughtful, sexy and romantic you are.

7) Author #7: Marie Lavender

Modern dating, at least in a sense, has the potential to remove the idea of being romantic at all. In some ways, dating is as simple as swiping across a screen. Technology can interfere with actually getting to know someone the right way. So, as long as both parties are fully invested, and they have an idea of what they want in a relationship, it can work. 

8) Author #8: Jennifer Carole Lewis

I think being fake or hiding who you are can kill romance and sadly, a lot of people put on a mask while dating.  But there is nothing more intoxicating than being with someone who thinks you’re amazing just as you are and wants to spend time with you, and you feel the same way about them.  That’s a good recipe for romance.

9) Author #9: Amber Daulton

I don’t think so. In fact, I think it can rebuild romance, especially for married couples who have fallen into a rut with their jobs, children, and everyday life. For a healthy relationship, a couple needs to spend quality time with each other, without distractions.

10) Author #10: J. Grayland

I don’t think so.

11) Author #11: Nicole Highland

From my experience, no. The courtship period, in my view, is usually when romance is thriving at its peak. 

12) Author #12: Renata Sterling

I don’t know, can it? I’ve been out of the dating scene for a while.  But seriously, I think that we’re on our best behavior, are the most romantic when dating, and we pull out all the stops.  The sad thing is that it seems many act as if commitment has to be the death of romance. I don’t agree with that belief at all, and it’s pretty much why I like to concentrate most on relationships between committed couples and married couples trying to find ways to keep the passion alive.
