Telling It The Way I See It











{September 26, 2010}   Love Letters Of Great Men

You – my life – my all – farewell, Oh, go on loving me – never doubt, The faithfullest heart Of your beloved L, Ever Thine, Ever Mine, Ever Ours (Ludwig Van Beethoven)

As a child, I was brought up with the idea of princess’ locked in towers, waiting for their knight in shining armour to come rescue them. So when you grow up and realise that this isn’t the case, it can be slightly disheartening! (Although I’m not quite sure the being locked in a tower bit sounds too good?!?!)

I started reading the book, Love Letters of Great Men and it made me realise how romantic men could actually be. So where are these men now???? Not literally of course, but whatever happened to romance???

So I thought I’d research it. I put ‘ROMANCE’ into Google to see what it brought up??? The first website it brought up……….”How to Write a Love Letter”. Now that kind of says it all really. I thought romance was about emotions and feelings, not what a website tells you to write!

Ok, now in all fairness to the 20th century man, these ‘Great Men’ didn’t have email, telephones and the Royal Mail wasn’t what it is today but still, that’s no excuse!

Men, who were fighting for their country on the front line, would still find the time to sit and write to their lovers. Now that is love and dedication!

Maybe it’s something to do with now a days, women always seem to go for the ‘Bad Boy’, someone please explain that to me????? I’ll be the first one to admit, I’ve done it. Why do we do it??????

You have one guy, who would worship the ground you walk on, if you were locked in a tower he WOULD come and rescue you, he would treat you like the princess you are. Then on the other hand you have the guy who everyone knows (though not always for good reasons), he would put himself before you, if you were locked in a tower, he would have to double check his diary first (you never know there could be a boys night out planned) and he would expect you to treat him like a prince, with you being the servant. So why oh why, do we pick the latter of the 2?????

Everything seems to be about money, who can buy the biggest bunch of flowers, who can take you to the most expensive restaurant, how big the diamond has to be (although I do agree, Diamonds are a girl’s best friend). My ideal date would be a nice little picnic on the beach, watching the sunset. Nothing big and fancy, just 2 people being together, enjoying each other’s company.

Maybe I’m just living in the wrong century……but hey I can still dream……..and wait for that love letter to come through my letter box 😉
