Are You A Romantic or Realist?

js250 js250
I am a hopeless romantic. I see the beauty in ordinary things and want a happy ever after ending for the experiences my friends and I share in life; separately and together. I also know that not many of the experiences will end up happy, but have faith that the lesson learned was necessary to prepare us for future adventures. I am also a realistic and know that the majority of the time, romance plays a small part of the reality of our daily lives....hard work and integrity plays more of a role in how things will turn out.

--Are you a romantic?
--Why or why not?
--Do you have a romantic or realistic experience to share?

I'm kind of a secret romantic. LOL. I recognize what is more likely and logical, and therefore I try not to dwell on a happily ever after that I don't actually believe will come to fruition.

I'm more of a realist than romantic. I like happy endings and all, but life and relationships require a lot of hard work. The storybook ending doesn't happen very often.

I'm not into romance much at all. I'm all about realism - but not in a jaded way. I don't expect my partner or those around me to see things the way I do - and there are times to step aside and let fantasy take over - but that's not the same as romanticism.

I was and still am a hopeless romantic. But I try to be realistic about things.

I've been burned by my own romantic notions one time to many.

I'm pretty much in the same boat as you.

What I consider romantic in my relationship may not seem so to others. For starters, my boyfriend moved halfway across the country to be with me. Second, when I got really sick and needed a heart transplant, he quit his job to be with me everyday. He never left my side and slept in a hospital chair. Not everyone will find this romantic, but I do. It showed just how loving and devoted he truly is.

I think most people are optimists for the most part. It’s what allows people to get through life. What is important though, is having a firm grip on what is realistic. An optimistic person might feel that if they leapt off a cliff, that they could fly. So, that optimism is fine, but you best be wearing a parachute just in case.

I am a hopeless realist. I am the person to stop and smell all the flowers on my way to work, weep over a sunset, I love waking before the sun and watching him rise chasing away the shadows, I am an eternal optimist... but I know there are limits. I know that to get anywhere requires hard work and dedication. And I know that shit happens.

But that does not stop me from wanting the beauty and the joy in my life.

Yes, I'm a romantic, and I've been suppressing it constantly since my divorce when I came to the startling conclusions that: Prince Charming is not the first guy who proposes, Prince Charming is just a guy in a costume, fairy tales are fictional for a reason, omens are a lie, coincidences are spiritual puns, denial is more powerful than reality when reality is painful, and I can't tell the difference between my Gut and my Imagination.

C asked me why I'm not as much as a romantic as I used to be back in high school. I told him that being a romantic idiot got me in trouble the last time. So he waits for me to feel comfortable enough to let it loose. I don't know if I ever will ... not to the extent that I used to. It feels stupid to be a romantic around a pack of jaded people who've lived gritty lives.

Oh I'm a romantic. Even unrequited love not that many years ago.

I used to be a hopeless romantic but now I'm all realist now. Hope for the best and you're most likely going to be let down, a lot.

I'm a romantic but I don't have high expectations. I am easy to please and don't assume everything will go perfectly.

I don't subscribe to the "relationships are hard work" theory. I've done that and I prefer relationships in which we are both comfortable with each other and can please each other by doing what we like. Sometimes you fall in love with someone and it turns out you aren't quite compatible but I'm not gonna give up because of that.
