That’s a good question. What am I talking about? A Romantic is a person with Romantic beliefs or attitudes whether male or female. He or she lives to love another in ways that scream their love, every second and in every way. He or she does little things …unexpected things everyday…to let their Love know they are loved by a Romantic…getting as much pleasure doing that special thing as their Loved One will have in receiving it.So I ask you again…do you know a Romantic?
Thankfully I do. But I must admit there was a long time that I thought my father was the last of the breed, and it was very discouraging. I gave up trying to find my Romantic, and though other men knew I was searching for him, they either told me to stop looking because he did not exist or they tried to be one…a charade too onerous for them to maintain for long, like a wolf in sheep’s clothing! And then, one day, he appeared…originally not how I thought I’d find him but undeniably him, and just as ready to find me, like the Beast who transforms into the Prince.
A Romantic does things that are more than random acts of kindness or thoughtfulness. It’s more than opening a car door…it’s having made a music playlist of love songs that creates an ambiance that leaves no doubt of how precious their Loved One is without it being Valentine’s day, because to them, every day is Valentine’s Day.
A Romantic can’t stop telling you how much they love you…verbally and behaviorally. The way you catch them looking at you with the most amazed expression followed by a sweet smile, when you’re not doing anything special. Or they’ll be the last one to fall asleep and the first to wake just so they can watch you. They’ll want to make passionate love or to just cuddle and hold you but not have ritual sex. They’ll have an undeniably physical reaction when in your presence more than the goofy smile that reflects their happiness with being with you.
The love of a Romantic is the essence of their being, because their Loved One is the essence of their being.
So I ask once more…do you know a Romantic? If you’re not fortunate enough to be loved by a Romantic then spend time with the characters of the CarpeDiem novels and Second Chances series, and experience knowing a Romantic. Who knows, you might recognize a Romantic in your own life after spending time with them.
