Behrend Reacts: What’s your idea of a perfect romance?

It’s that time of year again. As the old saying goes, “Love is in the air.”

Valentine’s Day is this Friday, which means that plenty of flowers will be delivered, chocolates will be purchased, and five-star restaurants will be frequented. All of this is done for one thing: romance.

We asked Behrend students to explain their idea of a perfect romance. Here are the responses that we received:

Erica Nowak (2)

Erica Nowak, sophomore, Communications: “Just spending time with another person you love.”

Patrick Nowak

Patrick Nowak, senior, Accounting: “A nice dinner where you get to spend good, quality time together.”

Kalli Oberlander

Kalli Oberlander, junior, Creative Writing: “Finding a partner who complements you.”

Adam Correll

Adam Correll, sophomore, Electrical Engineering: “Spending an evening with a loved one at home. Just cuddling means the world to me.”

Ronald Cox

Ronald Cox, freshman, Physics: “A faith-based relationship with mutual respect.”

Nicole King

Nicole King, sophomore, Mechanical Engineering: “A perfect romance would be someone who is very kind and considerate of others, funny, athletic, easy on the eyes, and creative.”

Danielle Hardy, freshman, Biology: “The person definitely has to be creative.”
