Where has romance gone?
Like sorry I didn’t realise that sending a monkey emoji or a winky face meant I wanted to get in your pants. Seriously people, since when did a guy/girl sending back ‘xx’ meant they were flirting/wanted you? sending x’s and <3's back and forth and that’s flirting? that’s chasing someone? oh there’s a winky face for babe to let em’ know I’m interested.
What happened to hand written love letters that you’d open and read on your bed and sigh with complete happiness because you know they took the time to write what they felt down and send it to you? or poems and love songs?
What about mix tapes or CD’s?
or spontaneously buying flowers? imagine opening your front door about to go to work/school and there being a bunch of daisies on your step.
picnic dates? Just sitting in the sun or under a tree and enjoying nature.
dancing? laughing your head off being spun around and dipped.
Making an effort to see them just for their company.
My mother is always telling me stories of when she was a teen and how boys would write to her expressing their love for her and how beautiful she was, they were anonymous (now we get anon questions on ask.fm and tumblr) She’d get mix tapes full of love songs and her favourite music and one boy wrote her a song, sent her the lyrics and then performed it at school. Like how beautiful is that? that rarely happens nowadays. I understand there are guys/girls out there that do this stuff but not many do and if you do? you are an amazing human being and I love you.
I know I probably sound like I live in a Nicolas Sparks novel like The Notebook or Dear John or maybe Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice. Hell I’d love to have someone stand as I entered a room or stood to leave, someone that opens the door for me. I know I’m too much of a romantic but seriously I’d much rather wait for a letter in the mail then get a text with seven different emojis silently telling me he/she wanted me in bed. I’d rather go on a date then get a Snapchat.
Sorry if I’m old fashioned but this shit really grinds my gears.
