"romantically linked"

What is it with the phrase "romantically linked"?

Celebrities get to be "romantically linked" with other celebrities, but you never say that about regular people. "Oh, Debbie, she's been romantically linked with Joe from accounting."

When you say "So-and-so has been romantically linked with Heath Ledger, Richard Gere, Keanu Reeves, and Warren Beatty," it all sounds swanky and glamorous. If you say "She has had sex with Heath Ledger, Richard Gere, Keanu Reeves, and Warren Beatty," it just sounds slutty. But it's not like we really have any indication that these people were "romantically" linked rather than merely, you know, just linked. Sometimes linking is just linking.

Apparently, college students "hook up." If you make it in Hollywood, you get promoted to a presumption of romance.

I like this. I think you have something here. Maybe it can be tied to hot links for bloggers.
