BF's immediate response is guilt (and the funny thing is that just a while before that he checked his phone during dinner for an SMS). The point that I am trying to demonstrate is not how sorry BF should feel, or whether I am being overly demanding. I didn't intend to make him feel bad. It is just something that pops out of my mind. I have to clarify that I understand a certain degree of interruption in an informal date.
The point is more to the fact that when people start spending their lives together or when their relationship becomes long enough, romance is no longer a delicacy and you no longer need to have continuous special dates to feel loved. Romance becomes something that surrounds you all the time. It is no longer something you deliberately seek, build or give. It simply flows automatically. When it is the beginneing of a relationship, people tend to bring out all sorts of romantic ideas, and it is always like the dessert of a meal that it's small in quantity but brings out a high intentsity of emotion. It makes you feel important and admired. However, as time goes on, romance becomes all courses of a meal instead of just the dessert, and with a lower intensity of emotion triggering. The sweet thing os a relationship turns from getting flowers and having a romantic dinner at a nice restaurant downtown to giving your partner a kiss when he steps out of the door to go to work and cuddling on the couch while watching TV and eating chips. Some people like living in the dessert stage, but I guess I would go for the whole meal!
