Is being a hopeless romantic a good/bad thing?

I must admit, I am a hopeless romantic. And I can be very naive at times too. All of my older siblings have their own families and are happy ones to boot. I always wind up daydreaming of that day when my knight in shining armor would sweep me off my feet. Yes, I am a sucker for love stories, and I almost always cry during happy endings. I have a bookshelf filled with love stories. I have an attachment to Disney cartoons (the Princesses!!). And sometimes, I want to be a Disney Princess and have my own Prince to come and save me. Hahahahaha Feel free to comment! Happy myLotting to all!

Hi aixshaonline :D I personally have no idea myself, because just like you I'm also a hopeless romantic :D hahahahaha =)) More worse, I have this tendency to "assume" that guys being closer to me are showing their motives.. hahaha.. =)) I don't know maybe I'm just plain crazy, but being single since birth and I'm now 21 I believe I deserve to have a boyfriend now :) hahaha.. =) Like you I also daydream sometimes.. =( I guess sometimes it can be a bad thing especially to those who lives in an "illusion".. but for me it can be a good thing because despite having some guys who'd pass by me, still i believe that the "knight and shining armor" (or the right person) will come in the right time, and i would not want myself to settle for something less just for the sake of being in a relationship. I don't know if i'm being ideal with it, but i believe it anyways.. the right guy?! hahaha =)

The earlier you snap out of this daydream, the better for you. There is no knight in shining armour because no one is perfect. You have to be wise when you want to choose a person you want to love, make sure his is genuine and the right man for you also make sure you can tollerate his flaws. Being a hopeless romantic closes your eyes to the truth

Many people daydream of fining their prince charming.There is nothing wrong with you being a hopeless romantic it is good that you dream so keep dreaming and soon you will meet your prince charming.

It is alright if you can keep yourself happy with romantic dreams and delusions as long as you do not expect this in real life.Real life is something different and if we learn to appreciate what we have than look for our dreams then it would be better.I am a hopeless diehard romantic;I refuse to be otherwise but my husband is a veyr practical sensible person.HE is a very good straightforward person and I love and respect him as he is.If I had had dreams that he would be like a person like a knight in shining armour then I would have been badly disappointed.

If being a hopeless romantic bring fun and happy feeling to you then it's not bad.Dreaming for good is natural but my advice is that don't spend too much time "daydreaming".You may change your attitude when you're mature enough.

Hi, aixshaonline! I think being a hopless romantic is really good thing. There are many people looking for persons like you. And I don't know, what's bad in being hopless romantic. It's a very normal and wonderful thing. You must stay a romantic and don't change it. Some day you will understand why.

Well, if that doesn't take up all your life I don't think it's bad. We all like to dream sometimes. Some of us about a knight in a brilliant armor taking us to a castle where we will live happily forever after, and other of us about going to a beach in Jamaica and drink mojitos all the day Enjoy your dreams, without losing sight of reality

I will not be surprised if you're "hopeless romantic" today because as you say, you have your own bookshelf filled with love stories and I think you love romantic movies too, am i right? It's not really bad but filling youself with those stuffs can make you fall in love easily (which is not bad). But what if the opposite guy comes to you which you think is your prince charming but with totally opposite personality? Just asking... Anyway true love waits... love is much sweeter when it is already ripe in the right time... Cheers...

There's nothing wrong to dream and continue what you are doing. Like you I'm also daydreaming but sometimes I don't know if it is going to happen to me or not. I'm hopeless romantic too everytime I watch love stories and it makes me think when I'm going to find my love of my life and if my love story have a happy ending too like in the movies. Sometimes is hard to expect and I think love comes unexpectedly so don't lose hope and be patient.

Hello!its normal to dream but see to it that your dream is realistic. Just don't rush things you like enjoy your singleness for it will make a big difference when you get married their is already limitations in every decision you make you always consult your partner. Don't rush things that you want to happen take it by moment.
