Well, I mean, we've been together for 20 years and have two children...one born during the pandemic....so....maybe?

I wouldn't exactly call it "romance" but I'd like to believe I'm preventing a few lonely and sexually frustrated school teachers from sleeping with their students.

Pandemic romance?

What are "two words that don't go together"?

No pandemic romance here.  11 years of marriage down the drain and we are divorcing.  Thanks 2020s.

Given that I've never- and will not- be good enough for a romance pre-, mid-, or post- pandemic, that question makes a frustrating assumption... :(

Romance?  Singular?    You're doing it wrong.

Are you talking about pizza?  Pizza will never never let me down and desert me!

Started dating someone December 2019, she dumped me November 2020.

Honestly, it was probably the best thing that happened to both of us last year.

There was a brief, glorious week in early February where my wife that was as high or possibly even higher than mine.  Shortly after she watched Bridgerton on Netflix and started reading the books.

More high quality sex happened that week than in the entire decade prior.  She went on a sex toy buying spree.  She was having orgasms (which she had only done once in her life before that week.)

And since then, basically back to zero.  Although she no longer seems to be outraged by the very idea that I would like us to have a healthy sex life.  So...progress.

Went from casually dating for a few months prior to the pandemic, to living together, then bought a house, then got married. All during the pandemic. It happened fast but honestly it was the pandemic that brought us together. It was like a relationship crash course. We handled all of this stress together, not just the pandemic but other sudden life issues, and still loved each other's company at the end of the day. And no matter how nightmarish things got we never really fought, just hotly debated until compromise was reached. Which is just an absolutely weird thing to me. I've never been in a relationship where you can have a heated argument, but because you're trying to come to a solution together rather than just fight. Dealing with, and finding solutions to, problems together all felt so natural we just kept taking the next relationship step because why the hell not? Life was already throwing everything at us and we kept standing.

Obviously you can't guarantee the future. But I've never felt so supported in my life. She seems to have my back always and in all things. Even when I'm being a total asshole, which is more often than I care to admit. In the beginning I struggled to adjust to being around someone all the time, as I've always lived a pretty isolated lifestyle. She powered through it and just kept reminding me she loved me until I was able to work through my issues. Now instead of feeling smothered I get lonely when she's not around. The way she's stood by me motivates me to have her back always and in all things.

We've weathered a neverending cascade of bullshiat, that's still ongoing as I type this, and yet we still get home every day and curl up together and everything just seems not so bad. The pandemic sucks and we'd all be better off if it had never happened, but for me personally I don't believe I'd be where I am right now without it.

standing outside the neighbors window with a camcorder is more hobby than romance, but it pays the bills.

If you mean fark's love affair with the pandemic, yes it's still going strong.

Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life.

That really farking sucks, and a lot of it always will.  But it won't all suck forever.  Hang in there.
