I think romance is important, just don't get hung up wanting tons of it.
Far as romancing gals to get laid only... unfortunetly alot of guys will and do do that. From what I've seen its generally Type A guys. They have conformed to being what society expects of them which is the macho, loud, insensitive, be the "Man" male type. Those types seem to be the ones more wrapped up in themselves then caring about someone else and they just want to satisfy their own urges.
