I Am a Hopeless Romantic

    Here's a poem I wrote

    for a woman I'm seeing and am crazy about: I love the way you talk, It touches my heart. Love the way you laugh makes my heart go pitter-pat. Your smile is contagious makes my day bright, everyone around rejoices in delight. Guess there's only one conclusion you are a...

    I think I am the very definition of a hopeless

    romantic. I want someone in my life that I can love and please, but absolutely no hope that I'll ever reach that stage in life. Any buhddist monks out there looking for a new recruit?

    romance is. You want to make her feel like she is the only girl in the world and just another girl. To many girls give it up way to easy. Yes I love sex. It's amazing but no honey you need to treat me like a lady and once I know you are right I will rock your world every night...

    You know those movies

    when the girl is so beautiful but she doesn't see that herself, and then this guy comes along and shows her how beautiful she is, inside and out? I want to find a love like that. I want someone to notice all the amazing little things about me and fall in love with each and every...

    Every time I see this group I smile at how

    stupidly romantic I am, or was with people in the past. I remember silly thing I did like bake a cake for someone, sing a love song, written a love poem, wrote on game cards reasons why I loved them, wrote letters, etc. I'm a good ball.

    I am nothing special..

    I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..

    I miss being in love.

    I miss those feelings you get in your stomach. I miss feeling like I'm the only one that matters. I miss holding someone. I miss those long all night conversations. I miss being able to look at someone and have them know what I'm thinking. I miss having faith in someone. I want...

    While I was growing up I often saw Dad bring Mom flowers or a cheesecake for no reason but to see her face light up. And that would make him happy.Mom would do the same to Dad be it a note she'd slip in his lunch or one of his favorite desserts which he'd reluctantly share with...

    I have a heart for sale.

    It is romantic, passionate, loving. Recently described as kind. It is not just perfect for a grown-up, romantic, caring woman but it’s good fun for the children too. It’s definitely not heavily used as it’s been lying in the shed in the last several years untouched. Low...

    I am free, no matter what rules surround me.

    If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything i do.

    The Perfect 4th Of July (my Scottish Lover)

    It was a very warm 4th of July. The gentle winds that always blew in the valley swept over me as I sat under a giant oak tree. With the rivers edge only a eight feet away, I sat staring at the water flowing down stream. I was thinking of how I was going to continue on....Marriage...

    Yes I'm a hopeless 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.

    I fantasize about someone

    who actually loves me for who I am. As cliché as it sounds, it's often I come across people who only want to hook up and nothing else. I'd like a domestic partnership. Someone who is super comfortable with me, and vice versa! Anyone agree? :)
