Its all Disney’s fault really. Why just take a look at this video.
From young, we girls have been bombarded with images of love and romance in stories, movies etc. And thats how when we enter adulthood we all have this romantic notion that some handsome prince or knight in shining armour will come and sweep us off our feet and gallop off into the sunset with us. And oh, we musn’t forget that all romantic kiss must we. *Muaks Muaks* then ride off into the sunset.
Only, in real life, after you ride off into the sunset, you wake up beside the most unromantic man on earth who is too shy to say “I Love You” (The “I Love Yous” are freely said only in the movies) and you fight over everything from who should handle baby’s poo or throw out the rubbish to what to eat or how you should arrange the furniture (can you tell I’m still mad at him for putting the telephone table at the side instead of between my two armchairs? Hahaha).
Oklah, Oklah, I may be married to the most unromantic and practical man in the world who doesn’t say “I Love You” or sends flowers etc etc but he’s still my knight in shining armour, my prince charming. Hehehe. Because no matter what, even with the grind of daily routine, I can’t help it. I’m a hopeless romantic and I still believe in love and magic and Prince Charming because its too deeply instilled within me.
What about you? Are you a hopeless romantic?
