A long while back, Lortar left Alterac Valley to help the horde with larger issues than those back home. This was close to the time he had a major falling out with his dad - Lortar thought the man was becoming cowardly, sticking to only breeding and handling worgs for war rather than helping defend the orcish villages against possible attack like his mother.
Yet, despite this, any time Lortar came across a worg native to Alterac Valley, he would compile a report on what he saw, specially on the physical and, if possible, mental health of the beast, where he saw it, and add in a few of his own thoughts. He was never asked to do this, nor did receive anything for it, but he doubted that the worg's newer handlers ever provided much feedback to any of the original breeders.
I guess that's not romantic or cute, but maybe a touch compassionate. :]
On the romantic note, he was in a relationship with another orc. A very crude hunter.
The didn't exactly have a romantic falling-in, and actually butted heads constantly, or beat the crap out of one another. They detested one another's sense of humor and never held a straight conversation for longer than one could hold their breath.
It wasn't really until far later when they were both chilling in Booty Bay after their usual gang split once the New Year's fireworks stopped did things finally start happening. It was actually during a rough time in both their lives, and both of them were using the celebration to push away their own vexations. One of them jokingly popped the question asking, "Don't you think we might as well be together?" and after an awkward pause things kind of clicked, they both shrugged and simultaneous went "I guess,".
Of course, it was inevitably only a relationship based on using one another as emotional crutches and outlets for unrelieved tension and they both knew it - Lortar didn't really care, but the other orc wanted to end it. After hearing from a close friend of the two that said orc did want it done with, Lortar promptly went up to beat him up for being such a coward about it and ended things himself.
The whole series of events was cute in a very unruly, orcish sort of way.
