I know that many of us are familiar with the term of a “hopeless romantic”. According to the Urban Dictionary, 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 idealists, the sentimental dreamers, the imaginative and the fanciful when you get to know them. They often live with rose colored glasses on. They make love look like an art form with all the romantic things they do for their special someone.
Similarly, my view of this person would be steadfast in hopeful expectations that love is still possible despite previous disappointments in love. This person may allow themselves to continue to endure the trails and errors in romantic relationships for the sake of love. Though, it sounds noble, however, a “hopeless romantic” somewhat has an air of despair. The word hopeless does not scream HOPE, possibility,or a positive outlook. At one time I did adhere to the hopeless romantic concept, but, I prefer to use the word hopeful. A hopeful romantic seems more inviting and wholesome.
What is a hopeful romantic? This person believes that true love is possible. They typical don’t mourn about past failed relationships, heartaches, or their single status. At one point the grieved over these challenges, but, now they see them as lessons. They are more self-aware that their self-worth is not contingent upon someone else’s love. These people recognize that they are deserving of love and allow themselves to be open to possibilities of love! These past lessons have transformed them into a hopeful romantic.
