And recieving quotes from a boy, gives shivers to my spine. Good shivering if it is from a boy whom I like. Bad shivering if it comes from a boy that turns me off (blech!)
There are even books being published for where you can copy text quotes. Let me put it this way.
It was our way of "conventional" flirting. or, "conventional" courting for our generation.
With these simple pre-made text messages, brought a lot of heartaches to many. Simply because it led to many misunderstandings. You thought you had a mutual thing with the other party, but you discover it meant "nothing" for him. It was so misleading to the fact that I myself also had my first heart break because of text quote messages. (Very silly isn't it?)
My guy bestfriend and I even had a game before, where I send a quote (whatever the quote may be about) and he replies to the message with another quote. (I can't believe how cheesy we were at that time). But it was also a way to collect text quote which we would want to send to our "crushes". lol
But now, sending love quotes have slowly become unpopular. May it be because my friends would refer to it as childish? or old school? or maybe because there aren't enough love quotes roaming around thus no quotes to forward anyway.
Now that I've been thinking about it, I'm starting to miss receiving love quotes text messages. It may not bring back same shivery feelings like in high school. But it's still different to be conventional, right?
Like when a guy writes love letters using pen and stationary scented paper.
or when he uses stamps & envelopes than just merely sending an email.
In application, I decided to send my boyfriend a "love text quote".
"Love, it has been said, is a form of amnesia during which a woman forgets that there are 1.2 billion other men in the world."
See my point? Nobody appreciates love text quotes now as much as they have been appreciated from the past. But I did not feel bad with his reply. In fact, my attempt was a successful one!
I've always given my boyfriend personalized pen and paper letters, and I have already sent him personal romantic emails. But none of which did I feel it really recognized, reciprocated or remembered. Turns out that sending my boyfriend the least amount of characters which consists pre-made cliches, attracts his attention the most.
And now, I'm off to collect suitable love quotes to send to my boyfriend. I think I'm going to start and making this a ritual. :) As long as I mean what the quote I will send.
Feel free to tell me any love quotes you might want to share. I would truly appreciate them. =)
