    Shhh, Its A Secret

    I love the idea of romance, but not the movie style romance, but reality. There is no set stage on reality, real romance happens naturally and i really like that concept. Like walking alone with someone, or saying romantic things, I love that. I cant help but fall for it :P but...

    God Hate to Admit It But True...

    I like the mushy stuff.... I have a smile on my face just admitting it.. I like being the tough independant girl and always say that i dont like the sappy stuff...  A  guy gets all sappy and I usually blush and tell him something really random.. But the truth...

    The Sweet Things People Do...

    I love small romantic gestures. People don't expect it of me but I love to just sit down and watch a romance movie and sigh happily or 'aww' at the adorable little things that people do for one another. I always wanted to be in a relationship like that, where there were small...

    I Would Never Tell...

    Part of me likes little romantic things - actually more just sweet little things that a guy would do to show me he cared.

    Some Guys Like It Too

    I don't know why women are the only ones who are "supposed" to be romanced - I like being romanced too. It's nice to get gestures that let me know that people care, whether romantic or otherwise.

    Not Really All That Secret...

    Trying to be close to one another as you go about your daily things, talking about topics you both enjoy, going for a walk in the park together and always saying hi with a simple, affectionate "Hey you." Why else would one be attracted to someone else?

    Well... Lol

    I'm not one to TELL you that I'd like flowers and sweet candlelight dinners, and other little romantic gestures, but... well, they're kind of nice and very appreciated.

    Yea, a Lil' Means a Lot to Me Usually

    I'm not saying I'll help JUST anyone, but I'll help more often than not so long as it's no big skin off of my back. But if a chick, and this could be any chick friend, ends up doing even the slightest thing for me, I remember it for a looong time. Like when a campus...

    that I really fall for romance. I don't really show a large amount of emotion around anyone because I don't trust people. Anyway, I have a boyfriend but he doesn't know that I really like romance. We haven't kissed yet and he sometimes talks about it and inside I seriously want...

    I love the romance, all the secret flowers and such that only your lover can really do properly.  It's great, it fills me up in a way that nothing else can. So why is it a secret?  Because, i have spent a long time hardening myself to the world, to disappointment...

    And They Don't Know It

    I'm a stoic through and through, and it's usually hard to make me feel something for anything. I just don't care enough, or I'm not the least bit interested in the first place. But, one thing I've realized whenever I'm in a relationship......is that I find it adorable when...

    It's Normal

    For me though it doesn't have to be big and expensive, just something that will mean something to me and if the person knows me well enough then I'd assume that they would be able to figure that out.

    Um, Yeah.

    I don't usually let on, but I'm a total sucker for the romantic stuff. Flowers, chocolates (especially if s/he takes the time and trouble to find my favorites) all of it.  All that sappy, mushy stuff...yeah.  I don't let on, but I sooooo fall for that stuff!

    It's The Little Things

    Holding the door for you, looking a little jealous when you hang around guys, glaring at your ex, asking you to a dance as soon as he hears about it, lends you a sweater when your cold, comes to any competitions you have to cheer you on, etc.
