    I am a hopeless romantic,

    I have had my fair share of pain and heartbreak over the years but yet I'm still believe that there is someone out there just waiting to sweep me off my feet. I believe in that everyone has a soul mate. The other half to them that makes them a whole person. And I still have very...

    I love walks by the water in the still of the

    I like to think so, but only of the gesture

    isn't too cheesy or cliche. like don't take the opportunity to do something everyone knows is romantic, take the opportunity to do something you and your significant other will see as romantic

    but I have a really dirty mind. Which gets pretty boring if you ask me. Sometimes I just sit there and think what it would be to have someone and wish I could have someone I could play around with and love but then I remember I don't want the bullshit.
