.. or at times aimless or helpless;
.. purposeless, they can be too;
.. I say they are shameless ! ;)
Call it deception, thawing of frozen hearts, rides, drum brakes, cycle rickshaw or with those hyper reactive keywords to compare your life to a poem .. some rotten minds put the cart before the horse and most likely burden their friends with expenses for their cry-baby behavior, never ending sad stories, their pessimism, nerve jerks, etc. So, beware those “hopeless romantics” and crooning songbirds who simply cannot live without your (so called desperate) love.
If you are a “hopeless romantic”, it’s not all bad, though. Every new acquaintance is looked upon as potential for the one true love. You are ‘perpetually’ optimistic, certain that your soul mate is just around the corner. You enjoy the thrill and anticipation that each relationship brings. As a downside, you are governed by emotion, rushing into relationships, hoping they will be "the one". The preconceived idea of the perfect relationship inadvertently causes you to sabotage yourself. Frequently you expect your latest love interest to live up to unrealistic ideals. What happens, the ‘hopeless’ one disappoints the other and part, or fall helplessly in love, yet again and live happily ever after (in the poems).
Get a life, the self proclaimed hopeless lovers, love is not only a boyfriend girlfriend thing, talk about mother’s, father’s, daughter’s, son’s, sister’s or brother’s love or for heaven’s sake leave love alone. Though I can make it easy for you, talk about the love for attention or for money ! ;)
It is evident that most people do not understand the true value, meaning or definition of the word love. Admiration, caring and respect are the cornerstones of love. I'm not going to look up any definitions of love, it is plain and simple, either you do or you don't. And those who cannot will never have known that there was something to live for.
P.S. resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is ABSOLUTELY intentional and you might judge this an attempt to teach some people lessons of life !! :P
