Another fictional character I would obsess about, but will never have. Sigh. Paul Hudson. Sigh.
“For what its worth, I think happiness is a fleeting condition, not a permanent goddamn state of mind. I’ve learned that if you chase after moments of bliss here and there, sometimes those moments will sustain you through the shit. …Personally, I don’t like inherently happy people. I don’t trust them. I think there is something seriously wrong with anyone who isn’t at least a little let down by the world.”—Paul Hudson
Sending sweet nothings on Twitter or Facebook is also fun. In some ways, it’s no different than sending flowers to the office: You are declaring your love for everyone to see. Who doesn’t like to be publicly adored? Just remember that what you post is out there and there’s some stuff you can’t unsee.
But the reality is that we communicate with every part of our being, and there are times when we must use it all. When someone needs us, he or she needs all of us. There’s no text that can replace a loving touch when someone we love is hurting.
We haven’t lost romance in the digital age, but we may be neglecting it. In doing so, antiquated art forms are taking on new importance. The power of a handwritten letter is greater than ever. It’s personal and deliberate and means more than an e-mail or text ever will. It has a unique scent. It requires deciphering. But, most important, it’s flawed. There are errors in handwriting, punctuation, grammar, and spelling that show our vulnerability. And vulnerability is the essence of romance. It’s the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, “This is me, and I’m interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.”
I don’t know if I have weird taste in men, but for as long as I can remember — the ones I don’t have feelings about are over eager. The one’s I like - hardly do a damn thing. Some don’t even know I exist. How wonderful it would be to meet and like someone who would like you back at that exact moment.

My sister will hate me for downloading this (she abhors the man-cheating-with-her-gf theme) but I really love their acting here, I wanna go give it a try. Only problem is i’m caught between watching this or the Italian version.
Romance is a state of mind. Romance is about the little things..it is more about the small gestures..the little ways of making daily life with your soulmate a bit more special…it is about small meaningful surprises more then the extravagant expensive gestures.
There are really two kinds of romance:
Obligatory romance includes celebrating her birthday, getting her a gift for Christmas/the holiday sesaon, acknowledging your anniversary and remembering Valentine’s Day
Optional romance is everything else…little surprises ..big surprises, candle lit dinners, champagne and oyster toasts, weekend getaways, sending funny cards, romantic cards..finding new web sites you think she would like…building a new blog site or populating one to surprise her..exercising your creativity..massages..surprise date..just because notes..watching romantic movies..writing love letters and poems and leaving them on pillow..learning to listen with your ears…eyes and heart…listening for the meaning behind the actions…listening for the message behind the words. via erospainter
