    I was just at the store and I saw really nice flowers on sale and they were all on sale. I saw a guy buying a bouquet and I thought to myself "It would be so nice if I had abf to buy flowers like that for." They had all these different colors and I thought what if blue was his favorite color and I bought them for him and went to his place and surprised him with them. And he answered the door in just a towel and then we started to kiss and everything lol. I always get these crazy scenario's in my head......I need a man.

    Anyone else with me?

    I do fantasize often. Actually I think it's more of an obsession I've learned to live with, but I also know when and if the right man is supposed to come along I will be ready at that moment.

    At this moment in time I don't know what I would do if I had a boyfriend.

    Hopeless romantic, no.
    Daydreams of having the perfect man, yes.
    Then again, my idea of the perfect man is one with an 8-pack, rich, and treats me like royalty.
    ...and is masculine/non-obvious in public so we can participate in activities with other guys without being ostracized...

    i sometimes tease my long term bf by telling him that he hasn't got a romantic bone in his entire body.

    after a slight pause i'll tell him that it's ok, i have enough for both of us.

    Used to buy my ex roses, cards, and his favorite things regularly. I'm such a hopeless romantic that I make myself sick even! I'm with ya all the way!

    I'm the biggest hopeless romantic out there. So big I feel like I'm destined to be forever alone!

    Totally hopeless romantic here too, but...

    After failing at a few relationship attempts (wonderful failures tho), this is my new mantra:

    "Love is a necessary, but insufficient condition for a relationship."

    In other words -- we romantics should embrace our Disney-esque view of love -- it's beautiful and wonderful. However, we have to make sure that's not the only thing we bring to the table.

    Real relationships have certain logistical requirements. For example, you need to actually be able to see each other regularly -- i.e. you sufficiently overlap in both time and space. You're also better off if you're both relatively symmetric in your life situations -- i.e. not rich/poor, not starting a career/retiring, etc. But most importantly, you both have to be willing to put in the work. Hard work. Over the long haul. The work it takes to maintain a relationship never really ends.

    Romance can paper over a lot of missing pieces, especially in the beginning, but in the end, it can't hold things together by itself alone. That's only in the movies.

    So dream about the color of flowers, but also spend some time thinking about how you find someone who's gonna be a good fit, practically.

    ...

    And then, toss all this advice out straight out the window when you fall head-over-heels for the next guy.

    i kinda dislike the term hopeless romantic. in my book it's akin to down to earth, average, normal, masculine, etc.... romantic is one thing, but the term hopeless romantic pushes it to another level that is actually not appealing at all.

    You don't need a man, you need a hand!

    Anyway jokes aside, I'm pretty romantic too. I have it all planned out on how my first kiss should be. It should be in winter when we have few inches of snow. It will look like a winter wonderland with snow falling softly. And when we kiss, Katy Perry's Teenage Dream will play in the background!!!

    My ex of 6 yrs & i both were hopeless romantics. Flowers, cards, gifts love notes & etc. All the while he was screwing every one else.

    The new guy im dating I refuse to do any of that yet & he cant get enough of me emotionally, physically & sexually. Im tired of putting my heart out there only to have ass holes step all over it.

    I think guys find it attractive or something if you play insensitive or hard to get. I dont understand it.

    Lol I think I'm a hopeless romantic. But I mostly fantasize about my dream guy right before bed. I start to think how much better it would b to put my arms around a big muscular chest and to look into dreamy blue eyes than to cuddle with my scooby doo stuffed animal.

    So can u b a slut and a romantic at the same time? Cuz I certainly am not saving myself for my dream man lol.

    I'm probably just impatient cuz I have never had a relationship (unless u count 2 months of dating a girl in high school). But I'm sure ill find a man at some point.

    And I'm sure all u other romantic out there will too.

    I'm a practical romantic. I enjoy the sharing of affection and doting but I'm past the swoooooooon, piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine stage in my life where you get these unrealistic images of prancing through poppy fields hand in hand with your prince charming.

    That's really sweet.

    I don't mind romance, but I think I am pretty realistic.

    I tend to be hopelessly romantic about small things. Like casually running my finger up and down a guy's arm if we're sitting somewhere. Or nuzzling into his neck when we're in bed. To me, those tiny, intimate moments speak volumes more than the grandiose/cliche romantic ones like the whole flowers/chocolate combo or gallivanting through a meadow.

    Yup, but realistically enjoy having fun in the meanwhile.
    (Romantic) love is a necessity for the heart and spirit to thrive. You can't get that from plain fun.

    My guy is always doing stuff like that for me. Flowers, sexy notes in my wallet, has lunch delivered to work when Im busy, plans surprise dinners and getaways, leaves love songs on in my car so theyll play when I start it up....

    Such a good guy. One of these days Im going to settle down and stop cheating on him. icon_redface.gif
