No matter what kind of hero you like, I think most women like a man who is at least a little bit romantic. I mean, I love a bad boy covered in tats who can take out an entire army of bad guys while carrying me in his bulging muscled arms. If he can do all that while handing me a dozen roses and reciting a poem or two, my life is made
I had the opportunity recently to help a real life romantic hero – my little brother He wanted to propose to his girlfriend and he wanted to make it an experience she’d never forget. I’m getting all teary-eyed just writing this post, thinking about all the wonderful things he had planned for her. He took her up in a hot air balloon at sunrise and proposed to her. Then spent the day hiking around and hanging out together and then he took her to the most romantic restaurant in town.
But it was the way he wanted to propose that really got me. He wanted me to help him write a poem that the could read to her. He sent me a list of things about her; things she liked and that he loved about her to give me an idea of things he’d like to say. This list ya’all…..OMG this list…..3 PAGES of what he loved about her. Everything from how her favorite color is turquoise (which he thinks is very unique), to her favorite candy, to how he loves how much she loves him, to how he can tell her anything and she doesn’t judge him, to how sexy he thinks she is, to how he loves how she plans for the future, to how she makes him laugh, to how he could just sit all day and look at her and listen to her talk, to how he loves how independent and strong she is.
I told him he could just hand her that list and call it done lol But I took that entire list and made it rhyme. It was just incredible. Who wouldn’t swoon over a man spilling his heart like that?
In the end, the poem was too long for him to use So we wrote a shorter one that he could use (that is just as beautiful but more suited for the few minutes time he had while the hot air balloon was peaking (which I found out means the period of time when it is high enough to coast without the operator pulling on that chain for more fire which makes a lot of noise)).
As expected, she said yes And absolutely loved his proposal. Who wouldn’t?
What do you find romantic?
