    I am the old fashion type

    I didn't even know it

    until this evening. I was head over heels for a guy that didn't really exist. The stranger next to me was nothing like the man I had pictured in my mind. And to think I sat next to him throughout several classes... I never really got a good look at him. It was all in my dreams...

    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.

    To be completely honest,

    I don't know if I can truly label myself as a hopeless romantic. Sure, I believe that one day I will find someone who I love and who will love me. But I don't really believe in "fairytale" love....I guess you could say I like to be realistic, even though I contradict myself...
