I'm writing a story that is fantasy mainly, but I want to (in fact I basically have to for my plot) add a sprinkle of romance which will be in the background of most of the story. The only problem is that I'm not very romantic (neither in writing or real life but that's another story) and I don't know how to effectively but rather subtly convey romance. I seem to come up with the two extremes (either a gentle hug and suddenly they're in love or creeping into the others room in the middle of the night) but I can't get the middle balance I want. They're around 17 years old, both main characters, boy and girl, set in medieval style time and neither are nobles nor incredibly poor or anything like that so no class restrictions. I really do need help on this one!
