In "The Open Window" What does "Romance at short notice was her speciality" means?

Does it means that romance was all she had to live by. She had no other interest?

Thanks Much!!!!

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Could it mean she fell in love easily?

Some people are "in love" with being in love. They need very little encouragement. <G>

I agree. However, I firmly believe it is biological predominately with brain hormones being the most active. Irrational behaviour, not thinking ahead are often symptoms.

I know it is sexist, but this quote comes to mind <<You have to understand that as a lady, she loves to be loved, adores to be adored and needs to be needed. >>
But GuruBlue is right, some have needs that require little encouragement, and the state of their mind is not to think about it. I never suffered from it. Romance on short notice, actually, is common in my experience as a teacher. Kids can change romances as quickly as the school cafeteria empties.
