Romance is a word of many historical meanings. Starting with the ChivalricRomance, where it meant "work written in the vernacular." From that, it derived the meaning of tales of drama, adventure, and larger than life characters and often magical elements and strange monsters. Hence, writers speak of Creator/{{Shakespeare}}'s romances, and PlanetaryRomance, and RuritanianRomance. It is the source of the name of {{Romanticism}}. To this day, "romantic" is used as a contrast to "[[{{Realism}} realistic]]" from the movement.

But nowadays, the commonest meaning is that the Romance [[{{Genres}} genre]] is about people falling in love. The genre is much more complicated than simply sighs, embraces, and bodice ripping wrapped in a lurid RomanceNovel book jacket. A romance focuses on the interpersonal relationships of characters and how those actions, thoughts, and circumstances drive people apart and bring them back together.
