The aim of this thesis is to demonstrate that Erich Segal's Love Story is a romance novel despite its Love Story based on the formula for popular romance.
Apparently, someone in ancient times claimed this finger contains the Vena Amoris, or the 'vein of love,' and that it runs straight to the heart. It's nonsense though because all fingers contain similar veins.
Did you know that Antidepressant drugs are likely to have an adverse effect on romantic love? This is because antidepressants increase serotonin levels. High serotonin levels can suppress emotions and restrict obsessive thoughts about the lover. When men fall in love there is more activity in the part of the brain that handles visual stimulation.
Women in love however show greater activity in the area that controls memory. Experts suggest that men form an opinion about a woman visually to determine if she can bear babies. All this factual stuff puts a damper on reading romantic stories though! Romance is an essential element of every thriving and passionate relationship.
Usually relationships start with romance but life has a tendency to interfere with the amount of romance in our lives. I have listed below what I believe to be the 10 biggest misconceptions that people have about Romance: 1. Romance and Sex are the Same Thing: This could not be any further from the truth. Although romance can lead to sex, a person being romantic just for sex will be completely transparent and usually end up completely different than you imagined.
The reality is that the relationship with our partner is the glue that holds everything else in our life together. Adding Romance to your relationship will not only make it more exciting but also more enjoyable. Most of the time just opening the door for your partner or complementing them on the way they look will make them feel more loved than downloading them an expensive gift.
Romance requires a great deal of time and effort: While some aspects of romance can require lots of time, romance is also about the little things that make a big difference in a relationship. Only Women are Romantic: In most relationships, the woman is considered to be more romantic, however this does not have to be the case. Both men and women need to partake in the hunt for romance. The only difference between a romantic person and the unromantic person is the amount of time they devote to doing the little things for their partner and their relationship.
Flowers and candy always work: Although flowers and candy are a nice gesture, they are so commonplace. You can still give your partner flowers and candy but spice it up some. Try taking your partner to the place where you first met or kissed and present the flowers and candy to them there.
Going that extra step and not stopping at ordinary makes all of the difference when it comes to Romance. Everyone can learn how to become more romantic either from a book, the way your friends or family treat each other, or some other resource. Romance is contagious, as time goes on you want to be more and more romantic towards your partner.
More significant was the fact that Jenny had been mentioning that she was dating me. The Crime says four guys jumped you. And I got the penalty. Five minutes. Some musical wonk? It was not unknown to me that Martin Davidson, Adams House senior and conductor of the Bach Society orchestra, considered himself to have a franchise on Jenny's attention. Not body; I don't think the guy could wave more than his baton. Anyway, I would put a stop to this usurpation of my time. I ambled into the lounge area.
From afar I could see Jenny on the phone. She had left the booth door open. I walked slowly, casually, hoping she would catch sight of me, my bandages, my injuries in toto, and be moved to slam down the receiver and rush to my arms.
As I approached, I could hear fragments of conversation. Of course! Oh, me too, Phil. I love you too, Phil. Who was she talking to? It wasn't Davidson - there was no Phil in any part of his name. His photo suggested sensitivity, intelligence and about fifty pounds less than me. But why was I bothering about Davidson? Clearly both he and I were being shot down by Jennifer Cavilleri, for someone to whom she was at this moment how gross!
I had been away only forty-eight hours, and some bastard named Phil had crawled into bed with Jenny it had to be that! How could she be so two-faced? She kissed me lightly on my unhurt cheek. I always make the other guy look worse. She grabbed my sleeve and we started toward the door. When we were outside, about to step into my MG, I oxygenated my lungs with a breath of evening, and put the question as casually as I could.
What do you call yours? When she was very young, her mother was killed in a car crash. All this by way of explaining why she had no driver's license. Her father, in every other way 'a truly good guy' her words , was incredibly superstitious about letting his only daughter drive.
This was a real drag during her last years of high school, when she was taking piano with a guy in Providence. But then she got to read all of Proust on those long bus rides. I had been so out of it, I hadn't heard her question. Of stone. Of absolute stone. You're a big Harvard jock. I guess she didn't know everything, after all. Too bad I had to shoot myself down by giving her my father's.
There was a little silence. It involves a kind of muscular intimidation as well. I mean, the image of athletic achievement looming down on you.
I mean, on me. Her eyes widened like saucers. I've got enough of my own. I told her how I loathed being programmed for the Barrett Tradition - which she should have realized, having seen me cringe at having to mention the numeral at the end of my name. And I did not like having to deliver x amount of achievement every single term. I mean he just takes me absolutely for granted. Doesn't he run lots of banks and things? And there I got my first inkling of a cultural gap between us.
I mean, three and a half years of Harvard-Radcliffe had pretty much made us into the cocky intellectuals that institution traditionally produces, but when it came to accepting the fact that my rather was made of stone, she adhered to some atavistic Italian-Mediterranean notion of papa-loves-bambinos, and there was no arguing otherwise.
I tried to cite a case in point. That ridiculous nonconversation after the Cornell game. This definitely made an impression on her. But the goddamn wrong one. She was still obsessed with the fact that he had traveled so far for such a relatively trivial sports event.
If I was, would I be going out with you? For a strangely long while there wasn't any. I mean, there wasn't anything more significant than those kisses already mentioned all of which I still remember in greatest detail. This was not standard procedure as far as I was concerned, being rather impulsive, impatient and quick to action. If you were to tell any of a dozen girls at Tower Court, Wellesley, that Oliver Barrett IV had been dating a young lady daily for three weeks and had not slept with her, they would surely have laughed and severely questioned the femininity of the girl involved.
But of course the actual facts were quite different. I didn't know what to do. Don't misunderstand or take that too literally.
I knew all the moves. I just couldn't cope with my own feelings about making them. Jenny was so smart that I was afraid she might laugh at what I had traditionally considered the suave romantic and unstoppable style of Oliver Barrett IV. I was afraid of being rejected, yes. I was also afraid of being accepted for the wrong reasons. What I am fumbling to say is that I felt different about Jennifer, and didn't know what to say or even who to ask about it.
I just knew I had these feelings. For her. For all of her. I'm studying. You're looking at my legs. Every chapter. But can I help it if you think so? I was crouching by her chair. She looked back into her book. Our first physical encounter was the polar opposite of our first verbal one. It was all so unhurried, so soft, so gentle. I had never realized that this was the real Jenny - the soft one, whose touch was so light and so loving.
And yet what truly shocked me was my own response. I was gentle, I was tender. Was this the real Oliver Barrett IV?
As I said, I had never seen Jenny with so much as her sweater opened an extra button. I was somewhat surprised to find that she wore a tiny golden cross. On one of those chains that never unlock. Meaning that when we made love, she still wore the cross. In a resting moment of that lovely afternoon, at one of those junctures when everything and nothing is relevant, I touched the little cross and inquired what her priest might have to say about our being in bed together, and so forth.
She answered that she had no priest. She smiled back. She explained that it had been her mother's; she wore it for sentimental reasons, not religious.
The conversation returned to ourselves. I guess. He may not be a genius or a great football player kind of slow at the snap , but he was always a good roommate and loyal friend.
And how that poor bastard suffered through most of our senior year. Where did he go to study when he saw the tie placed on the doorknob of our room the traditional signal for 'action within'?
Admittedly, he didn't study that much, but he had to sometimes. But where did he sleep on those Saturday nights when Jenny and I decided to disobey parietal rules and stay together?
Ray had to scrounge for places to sack in - neighbors' couches, etc. Well, at least it was after the football season.
And I would have done the same thing for him. But what was Ray's reward? In days of yore I had shared with him the minutest details of my amorous triumphs.
Now he was not only denied these inalienable roommate's rights, but I never even came out and admitted that Jenny and I were lovers. I would just indicate when we would be needing the room, and so forth.
Stratton could draw what conclusion he wished. Christ, you must be making it. I mean, it was never like this before. I mean, this total freeze-out on details for big Ray. I mean, this is unwarranted. Christ, what does she do that's so different? Christ, I greatly fear, old buddy. My sanity? Your freedom. Your life! He really meant it. We'll have that apartment in New York. Different babies every night. We'll do it all. That girl's got you.
Stratton was somehow unconvinced. I had heard her play many times, of course, but never with a group or in public. Christ, was I proud. She didn't make any mistakes that I could notice.
It was one of those April afternoons when you'd believe spring might finally reach Cambridge. Her musical colleagues were strolling nearby including Martin Davidson, throwing invisible hate bombs in my direction , so I couldn't argue keyboard expertise with her, We crossed Memorial Drive to walk along the river. I play okay. Not great. Not even 'All-Ivy. You play okay. I just mean you should always keep at it.
I'm gonna study with Nadia Boulanger, aren't I? A famous music teacher. In Paris. I was lucky. I got a good scholarship too.
I can hardly wait.
Maybe I was too rough, I don't know. You'll go to Law school - ' 'Wait a minute - what are you talking about? And her face was sad.
We're together now, we're happy. You can stuff any crazy kind of toy into it. But when the holiday's over, they shake you out. What about Paris, which I've never seen in my whole goddamn life? I'm saying it now. There was nothing more to say, really. I have actually made it on occasion in twenty-nine minutes. A certain distinguished Boston banker claims an even faster time, but when one is discussing sub thirty minutes from Bridge to Barrens', it is difficult to separate fact from fancy.
I happen to consider twenty-nine minutes as the absolute limit. I mean, you can't ignore the traffic signals on Route I, can you? The MG was at sixty in under ten seconds. You'll really like him. Why was I taking her to meet them, anyway? I mean, did I really need Old Stonyface's blessing or anything?
Part of it was that she wanted to 'That's the way it's done, Oliver' and part of it was the simple fact that Oliver III was my banker in the very grossest sense: he paid the goddamn tuition. It had to be Sunday dinner, didn't it? I mean, that's comme il faut, right?
Sunday, when all the lousy drivers were clogging Route I and getting in my way. I pulled off the main drag onto Groton Street, a road whose turns I had been taking at high speeds since I was thirteen.
Actually, I missed the turnoff myself that afternoon. I was three hundred yards down the road when I screeched to a halt. Is there something symbolic in the fact that I backed up three hundred yards to the entrance of our place? Anyway, I drove slowly once we were on Barrett soil. It's at least a half mile in from Groton Street to Dover House proper. En route you pass other. I guess it's fairly impressive when you see it for the first time.
No kidding. Stop the car. She was clutching. I mean, I bet you have serfs living here. It'll be a breeze. As we waited for the ring to be answered, Jenny succumbed to a last-minute panic. Was either of us joking?
The door was opened by Florence, a devoted and antique servant of the Barrett family. God, how I hate to be called that! I detest that implicitly derogatory distinction between me and Old Stonyface. My parents, Florence informed us, were waiting in the library. Jenny was taken aback by some of the portraits we passed. Not just that some were by John Singer Sargent notably Oliver Barrett II, sometimes displayed in the Boston Museum , but the new realization that not all of my forebears were named Barrett.
There had been solid Barrett women who had mated well and bred such creatures as Barrett Winthrop, Richard Barrett Sewall and even Abbott Lawrence Lyman, who had the temerity to go through life and Harvard, its implicit analogue , becoming a prize-winning chemist, without so much as a Barrett in his middle name! I come from a long line of wood and stone. In the case are trophies.
Athletic trophies. It is, however, also quite true that he enjoyed significant rowing triumphs on various other occasions. The well-polished proof of this was now before Jennifer's dazzled eyes. Under the bed. It was the Sonovabitch.
This is Jennifer - ' 'Ah, hello there. I noted that he was not wearing any of his Banker Costumes. No indeed; Oliver III had on a fancy cashmere sport jacket. And there was an insidious smile on his usually rocklike countenance.
In perverse moments I wondered how her boarding-school nickname might have affected her, had she not grown up to be the earnest do-gooder museum trustee she was. Let the record show that Tipsy Forbes never completed college. To which, all the time wondering if they had caught Jenny's humor, I could but add: 'Ah? Everybody was quiet.
I tried to sense what was happening. Doubtless, Mother was sizing up Jennifer, checking out her costume not Boho this afternoon , her posture, her demeanor, her accent.
Face it, the Sound of Cranston was there even in the politest of moments.
Perhaps Jenny was sizing up Mother. Girls do that, I'm told. It's supposed to reveal things about the guys they're going to marry. Maybe she was also sizing up Oliver III. Did she notice he was taller than I? Did she like his cashmere jacket? Oliver III, of course, would be concentrating his fire on me, as usual. What would he say to that? I suppose not. Mother, who is always on his side, whatever the circumstances, turned the subject to one of more universal interest - music or art, I believe.
I wasn't exactly listening carefully. Subsequently, a teacup found its way into my hand. It seems they had been discussing Puccini - or something, and my remark was considered somewhat tangential. Mother looked at me a rare event. Jenny gave me a look of 'What are you talking about? That's an order. And I don't take that kind of crap even from an Olympic finalist.
We sat at the table obedient to the wishes of Oliver III. He bowed his head. Mother and Jenny followed suit. I tilted mine slightly. Couldn't he have omitted the piety just this once?
What would Jenny think? God, it was a throwback to the Dark Ages. Nobody seemed amused. Least of all Jenny. She looked away from me. Oliver III glanced across at me.
My mother was from Fall River. My mother smiled at this, apparently satisfied that her Oliver had taken that set. But not so. There was a brief pause. I awaited some slamming retort. We withdrew into the library for what would definitely be the last round. Jenny and I had classes the next day, Stony had the bank and so forth, and surely Tipsy would have something worthwhile planned for bright and early. So I brought up a topic. My father pretended to look embarrassed, and my mother seemed to be waiting for me to bow down or something.
I mean, it's not Secretary of State, after all! Congratulations, sir. We drove on for a long time without saying a word. But something was wrong. Or, more appropriately, spaghetti sauce. For Jenny launched into a full - scale offense on paternal love.
That whole Italian-Mediterranean syndrome. And how I was disrespectful. Or didn't you notice that?
I then turned to Jennifer, mad as hell. I said it several times and in several tones of voice. I mean, I was so terribly upset, I even considered the possibility of there being a grain of truth to her awful suggestion.
But she wasn't in great shape, either. I just think it's part of it. I mean, I know I love not only you yourself. I love your name. And your numeral. But she didn't; she finished her thought: 'After all, it's part of what you are. She was still doing it. But could I face the fact that I wasn't perfect?
Christ, she had already faced my imperfection and her own. Christ, how unworthy I felt! I didn't know what the hell to say.
She made a fist and then placed it gently against my cheek. I kissed it, and as I reached over to embrace her, she straight-armed me, and barked like a gun moll: 'Just drive, Preppie. Get back to the wheel and start speeding! My father's basic comment concerned what he considered excessive velocity. I forget his exact words, but I know the text for his sermon during our luncheon at the Harvard Club concerned itself primarily with my going too fast.
He warmed up for it by. I politely suggested that I was a grown man, that he should no longer correct - or even comment upon - my behavior. He allowed that even world leaders needed constructive criticism now and then. I took this to be a not-too-subtle allusion to his stint in Washington during the first Roosevelt Administration.
But I was not about to set him up to reminisce about F. So I shut up. We were, as I said, eating lunch in the Harvard Club of Boston. I too fast, if one accepts my father's estimate. This means we were surrounded by his people. His classmates, clients, admirers and so forth. I mean, it was a put-up job, if ever there was one.
If you really listened, you might hear some of them murmur things like, 'There goes Oliver Barrett. Only the very nonspecific nature of the talk was glaringly conspicuous. You've presented us with a fait accompli, have you not? And for a girl from her background to get all the way to Radcliffe.

This goes for women meeting men too. Now where did I see that bridge? Romance novels may usually refer to engagement and wedding rings being worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. Apparently, someone in ancient times claimed this finger contains the Vena Amoris, or the 'vein of love,' and that it runs straight to the heart. It's nonsense though because all fingers contain similar veins.
