    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?

    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 Key to Successful Relationships

    People commonly think that the secret to a great relationship is communication... but it isn't. It's Compatibility. I can prove it. Imagine a couple who wakes up in the morning, shares a kiss, eats breakfast quietly while each reads a novel or newspaper, kisses goodbye, goes to...

    Admittedly so, I am a hopeless romantic.

    Even given all my life has shown me of loves' hurts and tragedies, I still believe in love and hope someday to experience love again.

    Meeting you was fate,

    becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you was beyond my control.

    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.

    It hasn't even been that long,

    but I've been thinking about you all day. Maybe it's just the fact that I'm truly fascinated with you. What's wrong with me? I'm waiting to have that happy ending.. I am hopeless.

    I find that as a male

    that is a hopeless romantic...that it tends to scare most women away. The romanticism gets to be too much and they think it's fake or that I'm just trying to play them...then they run off. I don't get it! Where are the woman that want the movie love?
