    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...

    Tomboy

    So in high school I was this huge tomboy and I had a lot of boyfriends but they liked me because I didn't care about romance. But the thing is, I really did. And whenever something remotely romantic happened, I would get all mushy and needy and some of the guys loved it, others...

    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?

    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...

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    The Little Things

    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...

    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...
