I also agree with your post, OrangeAppled, about the romanticism. I consider myself a romantic, and I feel love and affection very, very deeply...I'm just not very good at expressing it. I always get so awkward and shy and act like I don't care, when really I want to plant kisses all over the guys face and tell them how much they really do mean to me. *sigh* I hate being an introvert sometimes.
Usually, when I want to express my feelings of love I do it by writing a poem or a love story or something like that. It sounds corny, but that's how I roll.
