I already moved on but I’m still hoping that things will be back to normal“, “True love really waits“, “Everything happens for a reason” or “We’re destined with each other“. These are the commonly used phrases that you can hear from a hopeless romantic person. They believe that true love really exist, that true love is a force of nature and there’s a magic when you believe. Sometimes, it plays an important role. It can be a good thing or even a bad thing. Well actually, it depends on a situation. So I asked my colleagues about their thoughts, opinions and ideas: 

“People who believe in it should not finish last. Being romantic never gets old. Just like chivalry, kindness and respect.” – Doreen Zuñiga, Iligan City

“It depends on how far his/her “hopelessnesss” goes. Nothing is wrong with being in love with the idea of love itself but if it will cause an inconvience to oneself or to someone, then that’s a different story. That ideal, philosophical love can come true but not that it really will.. it may take a lifetime, a year… we’ll never know.” – Harold Vincent Jaen, Cebu City.

Life isn’t always about fireworks. Your fireworks will come and they’ll fizzle out just as fast. Life’s an experience, not a destination. All of us have the same destination, but not one of us has an identical experience. You’ll find someone who will be there when the fireworks fizzle out and the sky turns black and love you just the same. That’s the one to hold onto.”John Rommel Codilla, Danao City

Hopeless Romantic is a person who’s in love with love. They’re looking for a perfect pair or a soulmate to be with..and if they find that someone, they will do everything just to make that someone happy. Expect that they will treat you as their everything, their world and their life. Who wouldn’t appreciate that kind of love?

If you’re reading this, I would really appreciate your opinion about it too. Feel free to do so. 🙂

    “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” —I Corinthians 13:4-8a (NIV)

    The Bible itself is telling us that true love exists. Love is not something that you just simply experience w/ just a wink of an eye or spending 2 to 3 nights together. The above text is clearly telling us that love is not just an emotion, it’s more than that.
    Sometimes we can’t identify infatuation from love. We are easily deceived by our heart’s desire to fill in the gap of loneliness, that we are blinded by the pleasure of being connected with someone who doesn’t even deserve our love. Thus, because of our inability to differentiate love from infatuation we then become a hopelessly romantic person who becomes desperate up to the point that we then give in to our sensual desires. In some cases, people tend to rush things and when they no longer have the control over their relationships they sometimes use their time, money and even their bodies just to keep that someone not realizing that there is a far better person who is worthy to receive ther love.
    That’s why it’s very crucial that we guard our hearts and learn to filter our emotions so that if we bump into a seemingly gorgeous person more than twice we will not then be deceived by the thrusts of our thoughts that we are in love because in reality “biga ra na mem, di na love.” 😉

    They said people won’t blog for something that they haven’t tried. So I bet, you’ve been there and you will always be that way. Well, just know your limitations. Stay positive! Just believe! Cheers!
