Hopeless Romantic

Leave a Comment
Last night, my friend sent me a SMS "Kak, lo cocok deh ama istilah Hopeless Romantic."
Me: Shock.
For the sake of the whole world, why would someone think that way about me? Am I that much desperate and hopeless about love?
And after I find out what it is hopeless romantic, I was misunderstood. According to urban dictionary, Hopeless Romantic mean this person is in love with love. They believe in fairy tales and love. They're not to be confused as stalkers or creepy because that's not what a hopeless romantic is. All hopeless romantics are idealist, the sentimental dreamers, the imaginative and the fanciful when you get to know them. They often live with rose coloured glasses on. They make lovelook like an art from with all the romantic things they do for their special someone.

Me: pfiuhhhhh.

After I read that statement, i understand why she told me hopeless romantic because i find it in myself.
Today, I look for what is a hopeless romantic in google. I found the romantic hopeles test. And, this is the result:

" You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love. "
Henry Drummond
" Romance is about the little things. "
Gregory J. Godeck
" Romance, like the rabbit at the dog track, is the elusive, fake, and never attained reward which, for the benefit and amusement of our masters, keeps us running and thinking in safe circles. "
Beverly Jones
" When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving oneself, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance. "
Oscar Wilde

To bask in the delights of idealized love is, in essence, to be a romantic. Hollywood, it seems, has personified romance as candlelit dinners in fancy French restaurants or giggly chases in slow-motion through daisy-filled meadows. The truth is that expressions of love and affection don't have to be expensive or overwhelming. Holding hands, casual walks, or a simple "I love you" are those little things which can really go a long way. If you aren't comfortable with the traditional romantic protocol, you can come up with your own ways of letting someone know how much you care. The truth is that there are no rules.

It is important to note that romance is not a component of love that appeals to everyone; nor is it necessary to keep passion alive. Passion can be stirred by simply being respectful and honest with the one you love. Whether you're a romantic at heart or a more pragmatic lover, as long as you're willing to put your heart and soul into a relationship there is no amount of roses, candlelit dinners or four-string quartets than can measure up or compare to that.

My Score: 75 from 100

According to your score, you are a bit of a hopeless romantic. Rose petals, poignant poetry, tall glasses of wine, touching moments, and sweet words are all loving gestures that you enjoy receiving as well as offering. Romance is fairly important to you, and likely an aspect that you consider fundamental in relationships. Keep in mind however, that problems may arise if you are with someone who really isn't the romantic type. If you look forward to Valentine's Day to express your love and your partner doesn't even acknowledge it as a special day, you might end up feeling neglected or your efforts unappreciated. Nevertheless, even if your partner isn't as romantically inclined as you are, try to be appreciative of his/her efforts when she/he does try to woo you. Some people aren't comfortable displaying their affection in screamingly obvious ways, but this doesn't mean that they don't care, they simply prefer to be more subtle. Whether it's you or your partner who is doing the romancing, check out the ideas in the Advice section for some simple and sweet romantic gestures that aren't tough on the wallet or too overwhelming.
