For the respondents, romantic love is not easily found, but it is attainable. Romantic love is fun, perhaps because of its characteristic privacy, but it demands maturity and reciprocity to satisfy the feelings of those involved. Romantic love, however, is identified more as a conscious commitment than a fleeting feeling. Because of these, it seems to be both fair and unfair. The struggle of the selfish to become selfless is perhaps why romantic love is always suspended between temporary and forever.
Using a 7-point semantic differential scale with 15 pairs of opposite descriptive words, the 312 respondents were asked on their perception and attitudes on what better describes romantic love. The yielded mean scores were generally in the middle, in between the scores of positive and negative descriptive words. Respondents view romantic love as neither unfair nor fair (4.21), neither temporary nor forever (4.17), neither private nor public (3.76), neither choosy nor not choosy (3.7), and neither rare nor common (3.68). On the other hand, the yielded high mean scores were descriptions about romantic love as attainable (6.15), fun (5.96) and mature (5.59)
This middle perception parallel’s the literature that there is no single, all-encompassing description of romantic love and that concepts are based upon what people consider to be its archetype (Krass, 2007). This means that respondents’ perception of romantic love is based from their beliefs and behavior (Krass, 2007).And their beliefs and behaviors can be different from one another. But respondents do share commonality in some aspects of romantic love. As what the results have shown, anyone can attain romantic love, it is fun and mature. It is recommended that probing of romantic love descriptions should be undertaken for better understanding as to how and why respondents perceive that way.

On 2009, the UP Communication Research Society surveyed 312 UP Diliman students to determine their perceptions, attitudes, and behavior toward romantic love. Selected through stratified sampling, the students’ names were taken from the list of enrollees in UP Diliman for the school year 2008-2009 that the organization obtained from the Office of the University Registrar.
Of the 312 respondents, 288 classified themselves as straight. 12 classified themselves as gay, and another 12 classified themselves as bisexuals. 218 of them were females while 94 were males, and their average age was 20 years old.
90 respondents came from the College of Engineering, 30 from the College of Mass Communication, while 27 came from the College of Home Economics. The rest came from different colleges in the campus. 45 out of the 167 that indicated their income came from households with monthly income of more than PhP 75,000.
229 of the respondents were Roman Catholic while 47 classified themselves as Christians. Of the 47, 40 indicated that they were single.
(Based on the original write-up of the study on its respondents’ profiles.)
