This One’s For The Hopeless Romantics


This is for the hopeless romantics. Those living in a world that wants nothing more than superficial love and meaningless hookups. This is for the hearts that crave more than to be just wanted and desired, that crave the need for safety, familiarity and warmth. This is for those without fickle hearts who don’t just give a part of themselves but give themselves wholly and fully to those they fall for. This is for those who want to be truly seen beyond their looks and clothes, those who look for someone who sees to the very depths of their soul. This is for the seekers, those who look for something deeper than physical connection because if they are going to be wholly vulnerable, they want someone who will move them and make them feel alive.

This is for those who fall and fall deeply, those who believe in falling because they know love requires sacrifice and surrender. This is for those who still believe in falling in love at first sight, first touch, and first kiss. This is for the dreamers, those who, despite every heartbreak, still dream and hope for more. This is for those who have patched themselves up time and time again but still want more love, no matter how raw and painful. This is for the writers of love letters and poems, those who believe that words are just as much a way to the heart as actions. This is for those who want grand gestures of love as well as the subtle ones. This is for those who still wish as they search the stars for answers.

This is for those who are in love with love, the idealists who believe in fairy tales and spend the day thinking about the color of eyes, the meaning of a smile, and the echo of a touch. This is for those who believe in a love that hits you out of nowhere and makes you question everything. This is for those who, in a world of cynics and pessimists, still choose to see the world in all its beauty and light. They stay hopeful, living in every moment that leaves them breathless. This is for those that dance in the rain as the sky thunders around them and the rain soaks them to the bone. This is for those who are left speechless as the lightning strikes because they live for such moments that take their breath away.

This is for those who are old fashioned, those who want dates underneath the stars and to go skinny dipping in lakes at 2 a.m. This is for those who dream of lazy Sunday mornings and dancing around the kitchen as they make breakfast. This is for those who belt out songs in the shower and out of the windows of their cars, not caring about the wandering stares of others. This is for those who don’t just laugh briefly but laugh hard and loud until their sides are aching and they can’t breathe.

This is for those who stay up late with thoughts they just can’t keep quiet and feelings that make them feel like they will explode into a million stars. This is for those with shy giggles who cover their faces with their hands. This is for those who say they hate pictures, but in fact they can’t believe someone would think they were important enough to keep in that eternal moment of a photograph.

This is for the scrapbookers and lovers of nostalgia, those who look back on old memories and relieve them as if they were yesterday. This is for the book readers who learn love even from words on a page, from fictional worlds and characters who show love beyond what we dare to imagine.

This is for those who still believe in the one, that one person who will prove to them that love exists. That all the tears, all the pain, wasn’t all for nothing. This is for those who still believe in the words “I love you.” Three words that are so simple, yet mean so much. Three words that can change everything. This is for those who believe that no soul is meant to roam this earth alone and that home isn’t merely a place but it can be a person too.

So this is for the hopeless romantics, because it’s not hopeless to believe in something that has proven time and time again that it is more than just one word. It’s something that is magical and wonderful. This is for the romantics, those who are the embodiment of love and hope. Those who hope that one day love will love them just as much as they have loved it.
