How To Date a Hopelessly Romantic Person When You Are Not Hopelessly Romantic
Do you have a love partner who has an idealist approach to romance and likes to believe in perfect love stories? Your significant other may be someone who likes to wear his heart on the sleeves and is captivated with fairy–tale love story endings, candlelight dinners, long drives and frequent gifts and celebrations to honor you.
However, you may not belong to the same category of hopeless romantics as your lover. It might pose a challenge for both of you to date someone with whom you are poles apart in terms of being romantic.
If you and the other person whom you are dating have different set of ideas on what romance is and finding a middle ground becomes difficult, then you can refer to the tips here.
Maintain an understanding
Although both of you have different views on romance, establish an understanding between you two. Know that there is some force that attracts you both to each other and works for your relationship. You do not have to become a hopeless romantic to date a person who is so but you can gel well by establishing a proper understanding. You will not necessarily have to change your ways to see the world as your hopeless romantic lover does. However it will certainly help your widen your perception to understand and appreciate the things that a hopeless romantic person does for you.
Do not focus on materialism when dealing with a hopeless romantic
Hopeless romantics love the small pleasures rather than the expensive gifts. For them gestures of kindness, love, passion and deep interest matters more than showering them with materialistic presents. Therefore, you can think about the sweet gestures to woo your hopelessly romantic partner and to make them feel very special. Go for romantic ideas that will not cost you much but still will go a long way in making your dating partner feel happy and content. Thoughtful romantic things like cooking a special meal, walking under the moonlit night hand-in-hand and dancing together in the rain are some gestures that will make your partner feel extremely good.
Value your partner individuality
There might be something that your partner is very passionate about other than showering his/her love upon you. Find the things you hopeless romantic partner takes deep interest in and then you can help him pursue those interests. Encourage your partner to take up the passion and put his energy into making his endeavors towards fulfillment of his passions truly successful. Looking at you, your partner will seek to return the favor to you. Therefore, learn to respect and value each other’s individuality.
Try doing things that your hopeless romantic partner likes
Even though you do not possess ideal views on romance, you can certainly accept and also appreciate things that your hopeless romantic person does to see you happy. Being non-appreciative will make the romance between you fizzle out very quickly. Try doing things that you normally do not indulge in but do it for providing pleasure to your partner.
