You always seem to date the wrong person

For hopeless romantics, finding the perfect love is the ideal goal and many times you find yourself in the hands of a wong person. At first you believe that you found the perfect man only to realise later that he’s the total opposite of what you want.

You dread dating

Many, if not all, hopeful romantics are into long-term and committed relationships. With the change in relationship dynamics where no-strings attached and one night stands are the in thing, hopeless romantics can’t relate.

You have too much love to give

Have you ever felt like whoever that’s going to have the privilege of dating you is going to the be luckiest man ever? Well, you’re a hopeless romantic and sometimes the amount of love you have to give scares you. Often in relationships you always give more love than you’re receiving.

You’re often alone

You’re one of those who doesn’t compromise in anything when it comes to finding your prince charming. Dating is like fighting a losing battle hence you’re very picky with who you date.

You wear your heart on your sleeves

This is something you can’t help but wherever you go, you’re always ready to give a piece of your heart to whoever you feel deserves it. You give your all in relationships and in return you always end up with a heartbreak.

You refuse to give up on love

No matter how much you’ve been hurt, played, and cheated on, you still believe in love. You consider love as something too precious to ever give up on.
