Some of Us Are Just Born Romantics

stacyProfileby Stacy Boyd

Wanting heroes and heroines to get together is part of my DNA. At least it seems that way. For as long as I can remember, I’ve looked for romances everywhere.

The Evidence:

–When I first watched Peter Pan, I was sure he and Wendy were meant for each other. Tinkerbell was just getting in the way.

–During elementary school, my bus dropped me off at my house at 3:50 pm every afternoon—just in time for the last 10 minutes of Guiding Light, which I watched religiously. (Lujack, I still love you, and so does Beth.)

–I watched Jem and the Holograms not because it was a cool cartoon but because of the love triangle.

–I snuck out of bed and hid under the piano in the living room so I could watch Rhett Butler—oh, I mean Gone with the Wind, back when it played on network TV once a year.

Yep, I’m a die-hard romantic. If a story doesn’t have a romance, I’ll add one in my mind. Someone please tell me you do this too. I can’t be the only one who was born a romantic!

  1. My favorite thing about the Hardy Boys books was that Frank had Callie and Joe had Iola. I was big on Nancy Drew and Ned also. Even before that, reading Trixie Belden I knew that Trixie and Jim were just so cute together. It only got worse from there. And yes on each TV show if there wasn’t already someone for a main character, I’d create them.

    In my mind you are simply … normal.
