    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.

    Love Romantic Gestures

    I always fall for all those romantic gestures in the movies and shows. I want them to be done to me too!

    Shhh.... Dont Tell

    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...

    Okay, Maybe A Little...

    I don't act or think like a romantic. My idea of a romantic gesture is cleaning the house....but I don fall for the occasional soppy romantic thing, like playing my favorite song, flowers, candles, massages...even though it can seem hokey and contrived, the effort is sweet and if...

    Whatever :)

    My fiancee and I, when we started dating, had sent messages to each other on FB when we were apart. But we found each other holding back so as not to sound corny. But I didnt want to feel uncomfortable about telling him how I felt and I knew he didnt either. So I sent him a...

    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...

    but then I am also hopelessly romantic.

    Not So Much Secretly...

    Well, actually, I'm slightly open about it. When it comes to sappy, hopeless romantics, I'm the whole package! I mean, Barry Manilow lovin', romance novel and movie junkie! But oddly enough, I'm actually a straight, average male...

    None of my friends or family know

    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...

    My Little Secret

    Though you probably wouldn't know it unless you really know me, I love romantic things. I think it is so sweet and thoughtful for someone to show their love by doing something totally romantic. But not even my boyfriend knows, he's not really the type but I like him anyways haha

    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!

    Real Love, Not Fake Love

    I love real love, not the fake stuff like in movies. I like the kind of love between two people. Like strolls alone with eachother, showing affection, like in complete, true love. There's nothing better, however I don't think I'll ever find that lol I just love the concept. I...

    Such A Sucker Ice-Heart

    I don't think people expect it of me. I mean, my friends don't think I have a romantic bone in my body. I possibly don't - not to give out at least. But my thoughts go mushy if someone does something classic or something romantic. Even if they're cliché. Some cliché things...

    I'm a Hypocrite...

    I really do love romantic attention.  I played the ' that's so corny' role for a long time but over the years I've come to realize how much I've always loved that type of admiration.  My husband is a natural!

    Yes. For a tomboy I can be such a girly girl! I have a passion for flowers! Especially delighted with white roses. Always have a vase of them in my bedroom. I love messages. Hand written. Notes left on pillow (not present tense that one!), or dropped on desk at work (sometimes...

    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...

    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.

    Little things like a note taped in an obvious place where I'll see it with a loving message addressed to me. Telling me how much they love me and how much they need me. It won't seem like much, but my heart will melt at the thought of that person taking the time out to write that...
