A hopeless romantic is one who looks for the a singular person on this world that makes their world come together. They are indeed looking for the man or woman of their dreams. As a result, they prefer not to live in reality. The hopeless romantic knows the reality of love is that reality has no business being in love. This is why they will often perform grandiose gestures that may be seen as unsettling or borderline crazy to non-romantics. But to the fellow few romantics, these same gestures will be adored as beautifully and obscenely quixotic. And such is the "hope" of the hopeless romantic- to not only find the one who loves receiving such love, but loves giving such love. And the true hopeless romantic would always rather give than receive. Because they know then and only then, will there be true love.

I am hopeful to find my hopeless romantic.

someone who truly belives in love. not someone who cant get a date. they belive that love is the most beautifull thing on earth. when their sad just knowing that someone is thinking of them makes them smile, holding their hand makes them feel like they can fly. they belive that love is magic

A hopeless romantic, in my opinion, is a person who day-dreams of things that might happen with a person they have a crush on. As soon as something somewhat "romantic" happens, they start to picture everything their mind can come up with that will happen afterwards. They believe anything romantic can happen any second. It's not necessarily them looking for their soul-mate or someone they are gonna spend the rest of their lives with. It's just them experiencing very very movie/book like romance.
Ok. Lets say the person you like sends you a message, or gives you a letter that says "can i ask you something?" or "Answer honestly, please." Before you even read it, in your mind you are already imagining him/her asking you what they think of them and if you would go out with them. It's all in your mind of every love scenario you can think of! all this before you even OPEN or READ the letter/message. You get what i mean? you're just a hopeless romantic.

Someone who believes in a true love. This true love endures time and circumstance in the hopeless romantic's heart. This person is a believer and a dreamer. They do not qualify as a stalker because they don't want to infringe on the rights of others. They are patient and caring. They may or may not know their true love. They forgive easily and are prone to broken hearts. They often see the world through rose-colored-glasses.
Charles Dickens' Miss Havisham. Helen Reddy's Delta Dawn. Abagail Adams. (for her constant believing and steadfast role by her husband John's side, she could be defined as a hopeless romantic.)

a hopeless romantic to me is a person who is in love with the idea of being in love. they just want someone to care for them and hold them and tell them everything will be okay. a hopeless romantic gets attached too easily. but, they are very sweet and sincere. they hate being heartbroken. They are genuinely they best boy/girlfriend you could have. never tell them you love them unless you mean it. but fit for today's unholy standards? no way. they also have jealousy. they are not actually hopeless.

A hopeless romantic is a person who believes in all the little things about love, despite painful burns and heart shattering scenarios. And even after all this, deep inside won't give up on the idea that true does exisit. A well intentioned heart who seems to find love in all the wrong places but who's heart never spoils


A hopeless romantic is someone who in spite of either always being turned down or not being able to find someone truly compatible with them still gives effort into the attempt to find themselves a romantic connection.
A Hopeless Romantic really reminds me of movies like Serendipity, where they find little signs that they are meant to be together, that fate and destiny do play a role in our lives.

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 lovelook like an art form with all the romantic things they do for their special someone.
"Angie is a hopeless romantic,she's always writing beautiful love poems to her boyfriend Mike."

"Jack is such a hopeless romantic, he's always bringing flowers and doing the sweetest things for his wife."
