Perhaps one of the biggest questions for women to this day is this: Is chivalry dead? We don't intend to get into this polarizing debate, but when it came to romance, guys just seemed to do it better back then.

Here are 10 most romantic things guys did that only women over 25 remember.

1. Falling in love at first sight, and having the courage to walk up to your significant other.

It's not that falling in love at first sight doesn't happen anymore, it's that girls and guys will go online and search their crush's entire internet history just to get to know them better. That doesn't sound romantic at all.

2. When guys got creative trying to win you back.

The movies were literally our lives. Instead of sending you a romantic GIF, guys were acting out those romances in real life. That probably happened because they had role models like Heath Ledger.

3. They didn't give up that easily.

There were no breakups texts and Tinder. There was much more value in a relationship than one night stands and instant hookups. Like all things that matter, you have to try really hard to get there.

4. It was all or nothing.

That mentality was all that mattered. Hearing our significant other say things like that made our legs feel like jello.

5. Anonymous love notes (aka love essays).

These simple messages were handcrafted with love. Nothing says "I love you" more than thought and effort.

There's A Scientific Reason The Music You Loved As A Teenager Is Better

If you take a look at your most recently played songs, what shows up? Is there anything that has been released in the past 10 years? Unlikely. Most of us tend to listen to a lot of nostalgia-inducing music which comes from our childhood and teen years. If you thought you might be along on this, you'd be wrong. In a recent article from the New York Times, it was uncovered that most people base their tastes, music or otherwise, on their formative years. “The most important period for men in forming their adult tastes were ages 13 to 16,
