Urban Dictionary:  A Hopeless Romantic

1. A hopeless romantic believes in love and fairy tales. They dream of walks on the beach at sunset and dancing in the rain. They believe in the knight in shining armor or the beautiful princess waiting to be carried off into the sunset. Hopeless romantics believe in true love and the eternal bliss that comes from being united with one's soul mate.  A hopeless romantic is someone who truly believes in love.
