    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?

    As a girl, we may think

    that we should always have his attention but as a lady, we know that that is not always the case. As a boy, he could always give you the attention you want but as a man, he knows how to make you feel secure of his feelings for you. That even though his attention is not...

    reach for my earphones and plug them in my ear.. and my mind, body, heart and soul is filled with this warmth that you and you alone can make me feel. I hear the melody that you sang to me.. and then I heard the song that was written by you.. for someone you find so precious...

    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'm 17 years old and my boyfriend is 18.

    He has recently made some very bad des idioms that is most likely going to cost him at the most 6 months of jail time. We have been together for nearly 2 years. I have never loved a person so much in my entire life. This hasn't always been his behavior so he is basically at rock...

    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...

    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?
