I Am a Hopeless Romantic

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 49,779 People

    The last time I was on this road,

    it was by his side. Him who deceived and hurt me. I ignored the warning signs and kept on loving him like a fool, I should have known better by now. Despite all those who hurt me, I choose to believe. I believe that someday my path will cross with the person who will love and...

    Even though my lifestyle doesn't make room

    for permanent lovers, I'm always abusing myself with love affairs that torment and destroy me then I sabotage what remains. I might be a romantic, sure but I'm mostly Hopeless!

    Transparent to the world,

    void of substance I wait in joyous agony for my lovers return. Moments pass in hopes she will call, write, or scream me into existence once again. Her lips colored; nay painted just for me, glossed in transcendent beauty. All that I am or ever will be is defined within her...

    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've had this same problem

    now with my last few crushes. In the beginning, our texting would be fine. She would reply within a reasonable time, but as time went by, she would get worse and worse at replying until she wouldn't even reply at all. Is it a girl thing? Maybe it's me. I have no idea. I'm a...

    "Actually, there is a word

    for that. It's love. I'm in love with her, okay? If you're looking for the word that means caring for someone beyond all rationality and wanting them to have everything they want no matter how much it destroys you, its love! And when you love someone you just, you...you don't...

    The Key to Successful Relationships

    so much that it actually makes you physically sick? Like sick to your stomach? Never believed in love at first sight, but I'll tell you, it exists. The second I locked eyes with that woman, I felt something I never knew existed within me. Never really knew how she felt about me...

    I remember the sweet hours we routinely shared

    embraced in our enchanted love affair. My lips surveyed your soft skin as you delighted in blissed sensation. Every curve I mapped to memory. Your delicate birth mark and moles were constellations I would navigate with amazement As you slumbered.

    Men now a days have seem to forgotten what

    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...

    Beat me. Punch me in the face.

    Bite. Kick me. Hurt me. Do anything so I can see you bother. If love hurts then nothing else I want just pain. If love is a heartache then give me a big one so I feel alive.

    Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong

    era. Romance today is so different from what it should be. Romance today can often be one person looking at the other, nodding, and saying "hey" with the other doing the exact same in response. What happened to the old art of romance?
