I really appreciate romance when it naturally occurs but I hate artificially creating it. I believe there is a fine line between romantic and cheesy. To give you an example, I think there's something very romantic about being close to nature. Thus, sleeping in a tent can be very romantic. Or for me, since I live in Switzerland, the idea of hiking through the alps, realizing that you don't make it back in time and spontaneously deciding to spend the night at an old, rustic mountain cottage or barn sounds romantic.
Probably one of my most romantic moments I ever experienced in my whole life was when I was on a big trip through the US. The group I was traveling with went to the Monument Valley and we decided to book a 24-hour trip into the desert with the native Americans who live there. They showed us around, explained things, cooked dinner for us, danced and sang for us and eventually we got to sleep in authentic native American houses (it wasn't tents, more like small, round buildings made out of clay). When it became late and everyone crawled in there to sleep, I asked one of our native American guides if I'd be allowed to sleep outside in the desert on my own. He replied "sure, just watch out for snakes and scorpions". So I left all my stuff at the camp and I only took my sleeping bag and my cell phone (as alarm clock) and walked about half a mile away from the camp. Eventually, I found a nice spot with very fine, soft, red sand and not too many bushes around. It was close to a huge, beautiful, red rock that rose about 600-700 feet into the air and there was even a small cave in it that was maybe 100 feet away from me. So I laid down my sleeping bag, took off my shoes and slipped inside. Falling asleep like that was one of the most unique and beautiful things I've ever experienced. The red sand was like a soft pillow under my body, it was hard to believe that I was sleeping on the ground. The silence around me was unbroken. Maybe once in a while there was a rustling in a nearby bush but no cars, no human voices, no music... just me and mother nature. Also, it was incredibly dark. Once I turned off my phone, there was absolutely no artificial light source. No light pollution. This meant that I could see the whole milky way. The rock next to me looked majestic... it was really, really nice. Although I was alone, this was incredibly romantic and it was especially nice because I didn't plan for any of this. I just wanted to be away from other people for0

I don't know. My friends tell me that i am too skeptical to be romantic. That's probably true. But sometimes even my icy heart melts xD
