 New Romantic
New Romantic was a Pop music and fashion movement that occurred primarily in Britain during the early 1980s.
The New Romantic phenomenon was similar to that of glam rock during the early 1970s, in that (male) New Romantics dressed in effeminate clothing, often with frilly shirts, and wore make up.
A more recent and minor trend is "fop-rock", in which the performers don eighteenth century wigs, lace cravats, and similar costumes to perform, a minor movement that would appear to owe something to glam rock and the New Romantic movement.

 New Romantic
Despite the fact that the New Romantics were themselves more often than not kids who had fallen loosely within Punk's broad domain, they now emerged in a sense as antiPunks, substituting the elegant for the slovenly, the precious for the vulgar, Dressing Up for Dressing Down.
Among the New Romantics were hundreds of talented clothing designers, musicians and club entrepreneurs who never quite fulfilled their promise in the straightjacket of Punk but who now forged a link between streetstyle, club culture and popular music which remains in effect to this day.
Indeed, perhaps the greatest accomplishment of the New Romantics was the extent to which they brought the media within their own control - prompting the launch of a new breed of 'style magazines' such as i-D and The Face which, for the first time, gave club culture and streetstyle the credit they deserve

Many women find a candlelit bubble bath or spontaneous picnic at dusk to be a great way to get in the mood sexually, as well as a way to express and share their love.
So it's not that he loves you less than you love him; it may just be that his expression of love excludes that prelude of chocolate and roses.
