look up any word, like usuratonkachi:
A person who daydreams of romantic occasions, of swaying the one they love off their feet while not thinking of what to expect in return, yet never having a chance to do so. That is where they "key" lays. The word "never" is "hopeless"; if that one person successfully attracts the other person and forms a serious relationship, then that is a successful romantic, while still performing his/her romantic acts. This is important: the romantic acts must still be performed naturally, not out of effort. It always matters how life ends, now how it starts or how it gets there (speaking in this context only at the moment). In this end, a hopeless romantic is either successful and thus becomes simply romantic (he/she is in a relationship), or just ends as hopeless if alone. There are also the type of people who just satisfy themselves with sexual partners hence not marrying; there are those who just have a serious relationship (I believe those relationships are all defect because they only married out of financial need and perhaps physical as well), and there are those who perform business marriages. This last level of marriage is simply for their respective business to prosper and keep their power. "Hopeless" is a negative word, and thus these wonderful people are just simply romantic, there is nothing hopeless about them. Simply put, you are either "hopeless" or you are "romantic". Refer above to "the end". Hopeless romantic is just an insult, calling caring and loving people hopeless. Too rude.
no example for "hopeless romantic"

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."

A hopeless romantic is not the same as a hopeless flirter. A hopeless romantic dreams of who they will spend the rest of their life with and what the two of them will do together. They want to be romanced with sweet simple things and the thoughtful amazing surprises. They dream of being loved but also loving somebody. They don't just want somebody to hold them. they also want to hold someone. They realize that love isn't just about one person but both people. they are hopelessly in love with being loved AND loving back.
My friends is a perfect example of someone who isn't a hopeless romantic. She says she wants to be romanced but she flirts with every guy. And I mean EVERY guy. She calls herself a hopeless romantic but shes not. Once she has a guy that just wants to love her shes get bored after two weeks and then when he gets a new girlfriend she suddenly likes him again. Thats not hopeless romantic thats just hopeless.

Hopeless Romantics are NOT Hopeless per-say, but very true, caring, and loving people. They are "NOT MADE FOR TODAYS STANDARDS", sadly. They believe in passion, chivalry, and true love. They have loved sincerely at one point in their life, discovered what love feels like, and can't understand why it was not returned in the same form. Hopeless Romantics are usually dreamers, idealists, and sincere, however what they expect in any relationship is a full return for their effort and caring, to be loved as much as they loved. What makes them "Hopeless" is the fact that they are few and far between in todays daily life, and usually get let down in the long run, even though they gave all they had to give, money, love, time, housing, belongings. Hopeless Romantics give 100% ALL the time, and hope for the same in return.
Hopeless Romantic - "One Day you'll find sumone who appreciates you, loves you, u gave so much, u were so true and faithful, u did EVERYTHING RIGHT" - you

Many people have this defintion of a hopeless romantic all wrong....A hopeless romantic is NOT someone who cant get anyone and they die lonely. It is someone who is truly in love with true love. They will do anything to be with the person they love. They believe in the idea that there is only ONE person out there for you. They like to be adventurous and spontaneous with this person.
Hopeless Romantic really reminds me of movies like Serindipity, where they find little signs that they are meant to be together

a person who allows feelings of love to override common sense
Was I being a hopeless romantic when I offered her an extra fifty if she could convince me that she wasn't doing it just for the money?

someone that thinks of love passionately.
A hopeless romantic is someone who seeks an opportunity to share a piece of his/her's heart.
