Series 2, Episode 5 - Romance
A grumpy look at romance. For those newly in love, the dating game may be a wonderful thing, but for the rest of us just the word romance alone sets us off. It could be that the process of finding someone nice to date is so hideous and difficult that once two people find each other they stick together like glue.
For grumpy people, like us, things that are supposed to make us universally, unreservedly happy have a habit of making us very grumpy indeed. Like romance: the whole boy meets girl business, yes ok if you're in the first flush of youth or you're newly in lurve, then the dating game is a wonderful thing, but for the rest of us, just the word romance sets us off on a string of grumpy thoughts. Some days the whole world seems to be canoodling in luvvy duvvy paradise, when the truth is most of us have a limited amount of success with the whole business. Or could it be that the process of finding someone nice to date is so hideous, so difficult that once we've found a partner we stick together in twos like glue.
