Top Definition
Someone who is able to look at the positive side of life while maintaining a realistic viewpoint. Although seemingly contradictory (or even possibly as an oxymoron), it clearly is not due to the fact that realism has no positive or negative association, only a focus on the realistic elements of a situation.
Craig is an optimistic realist because while he understands that in reality, negative things can happen, that there is an equal chance that positive things will happen.
