I never said that I dismissed shoujo I just have been hesitant about reading some XD I guess this is one of those things were you should just take the plunge. That is how I got involved with romance manga and the first one I read was Love Hina

Kanata Kara is your classic "adventure with romance" story and is quite excellent. Shoujo of this type usually just plain suck (Fushigi Yuugi anyone?), but this is the exception.

Three of the four of those are not of the demographic you requested, but well, shonen romances are almost always awful and there are so few decent seinen ones...
Hm.... added and thanks for the info ^-^

Anyways, I will second Maison Ikkoku. It's sort of a superior (imo) version of Love Hina.

I also recommend Cross Game for a more recent manga.
