Red roses and expensive jewelry are no longer the hallmarks of love.
Romance in the modern age means anything from saying good morning before looking at your phone to checking in with your partner’s feelings, a poll found.
For many people, sharing funny memes on social media is a sure sign of love, while others appreciate a simple “I love you” every day.
Despite the challenges of today’s dating scene, more than three quarters of the 2,000 adults surveyed think love and romance still exist in the modern world. Indeed, many time-honored traditions persist, with the two most popular responses to what love is, asking your partner if they’re okay, and a daily “I love you.”

Other perennial gestures like rubbing the back, buying flowers, and getting your partner a cup of coffee in bed also remain popular.
Reflecting the hustle and bustle of modern life, many said sharing the chores was key to strong partnerships, according to the poll for Costa Coffee.
More modern expressions of love included taking pictures of each other to share on social media and having matching tattoos.
