I have a question

There is an episode of Sex and the City where Carrie is dating a European man that is very old world romantic. He does things like read her poetry, write her songs and dance with her in front of the Met. When I write all of those out in a list like that it seems romantic and exhilarating yet cheesy and ridiculous. I would like to believe that if that were to happen to me I would be able to contain my inner teenager laughing and pointing, but I'm not sure I could do it. This whole thing started when a friend of mine well call her "Phonia" began receiving love poems from someone quite frequently. While I enjoyed hearing about how thoughtful they were I couldn't help thinking to myself how cheesy this was and how I had no idea what they meant. Could you handle being romanced like this?, cause I'm pretty sure that I couldn't.

No way man. I'd laugh pretty hard. I guess I have no soul though, so... whateve.

If he'd start singing and reading poetry i'd start laughing (i know i'd do this cause i did), but you know me and dancing. i'd fall for him. how sappy am I?

Hmmm, if he was completely serious and not just being cheesy to be cheesy, then I think I might actually enjoy it. But that's just me...I'm a sap when it comes to romantic stuff.
