Yes I Am A Romantic

I teach logic, but I have deep seeded romantic tendencies. I tend to put romance before sex, which means that I tend to want to do all the really difficult things like get turned on by someone's personality and get them really turned on my mine. I am also an intellectual type, which means that my missing half hasn't always been easy to find. I could go for a long period of time just bathing in romantic feelings before having sex, and in some ways I think that if I were really romantically attracted to someone I would almost like to stretch things out, letting the tension build and savoring the experience so to speak. I think romance is a kind of art applied to love: you need to really believe in romance and have a feeling for it like dancing; but just like dancing you need a partner who understands your moves. I like to take the lead, but I have felt more than once that my partner doesn't really understand what I am trying to do. Not everyone is looking for romance. Once a girlfriend asked me what i wanted from her. I dont think i actually said this because it might be misunderstood, but the thought that came up was, "your soul".

Very nice, did you intentionally not go back to cap some of the lower case i's?

Thank you for sharing this wonderful story. It touched me, I am romantic too and also deep in romantic feelings before sex, etc. I realise now that it is hard to be romantic. My ex husband did not understand it and sadly, my ex partner (partner is not a good word for romantic feelings?!) also did not care for my romantic mood. I just wanted our souls be together. I still hope that I will meet him who will wide open the windows of his soul to me to meet my soul. Hugs.

Thank you for your comment. Truly appreciated. I hope perhaps my experience can add some perspective on things.
