Ah, love. Burning flames of passion ignited by a simple spark that burns in every vein of our heart. The best natural drug in the world. As hopeless romantics, we are addicted to this feeling.
Love is beautiful. Love is exciting. Love is craving those emotions every moment of every day. How could one not get lost in love? Love. Characterized as stomachs full of butterflies..knees so weak you wonder how you keep standing..heart pounding so hard you can hear every beat. Everyone feels these things when they have found someone that they adore. However, the difference for hopeless romantics is, is that they still believe in the aspect of love even when our hearts are breaking.
I blame romcoms and disney movies. They're all the same with their "love at first sight" or the " unrequited love that actually turns into happily ever after after all" drama. The more cliches, the better. Hopeless romantics eat it up like candy.
My persoanl favorite is "Romeo & Juliet". Is it because I am all about the rebellious young love or that I connect with the whole doomed to fail relationship scenario..? Whatever it may be I am a total sucker for them. Let me watch the cheesiest love story ever made and be prepared to catch my melting heart in the popcorn bowl.
I'm not sure if you can turn into a hopeless romantic. I think you are just born that way. I certainly have been this way my entire life (maybe because I grew up on watching disney princess movies and knew every word of "Titanic" when I was eight). However, as much as I loved the thought of love, I have never been lucky with it. I usually go for the guys who have issues. I mean, how romantic would it be to have the bad boy fall head over heels for you? Of course, Danny Zuko automatically pops in my head..how original of me. And I constantly question, "WHY?" Just why does that appeal to me. Obviously, life is not scripted and the outcome would never and will never end happily like in the movies. I have hoped that one day I would just grow out of it. That it was just my young heart wanting that kind of drama. Sadly, it hasn't yet.
Craving that certain kind of guy, only wishing that he will feel the same way as you do, even though in the very back of your mind you know all he is planning on doing is let your heart slip right through his hands and crash into a million pieces on the ground. Which he will then continue to stomp on, even after the damage is done. And being the hopeless romantic that you are, you will continue to let him do it. Just breaking it..every little piece of my heart..thanks Faith Hill for making the theme song for my love life!
Every hopeless romantic today is just living in the wrong generation. Can someone please make a time machine just so I can go find someone worth my time?? Yeah.. Hopeless romantic sure does live up to its name nowadays.
