Hello and welcome!
Today I thought I share my thoughts on romantic notions. I admit, that as a frequent and avid reader I always expect more out of my relationship. After reading about some guy swooning his girl, I want my husband to do the exact same thing. I mean, why can't guys be like guys in books?
I realize that I do whine and complain a lot about this to my husband. I constantly want him to surprise me and take me out, or pull some nice thoughtful romantic dinner. Let's face it, when it comes to real life love is not that way. Love takes time and work.
In a way, John and I do have a love that is well... rare. You see, he and I are high school sweet hearts. We met during band camp (yes, I know), he was 15 and I was 14. He became my first boyfriend in high school and we dated for a few months before I dumped him. (Long story)
Anyways, today I had a conversation with him as to why he doesn't sweep me off my feet all the time. Here is what happen:
Me: Hey babe?
Me: I have a question.
Me: How come you don't tell me romantic things?
John: I don't know.
Me: Boys in books do it.
John: That's cause a girl wrote it.
John: So, if I say romantic things all the time it will become a regular thing.
Me: And whats wrong with that?
John: When it comes out, it's not as special.
*SWOON* Do you see why I love this man? How he made me swoon even when I was picking on him to tell me something romantic. And that's why I love reading. Yes, I get to read a guy say something romantic but getting it said to you in real life is soo much more amazing!
Do any of you have romantic notion when it comes to guys? What do you expect out of them? Do books influence what you want? Tell me in the comments!
