美文：are men romantic? 谁说男人不浪漫？ verywen.com
we too often define "romantic" in women's terms - sending flowers and cards, saving mementos and putting them in a box or scrapbook, gushing over chick romance movies, or listening to romantic songs all day.
men may not do these things, but many men do something more romantic than all that: they keep their love in their hearts forever.
my survey of 3000 men and women worldwide who tried reunions with lost loves asked, "how long did it take for you to get over your lost love?" responses from the men indicated that they took significantly longer to get over their lost loves than the women. some of the men were not satisfied with the survey choices: the last choice listed was, "over 10 years." only men crossed out all the choices and wrote, "i never got over her!" while no doubt some women never got over their lost loves, either, only men wrote this comment on the survey.
adolescent boys are "not supposed" to cry over lost loves. but many of my male participants reported that, after their high school girlfriends broke up with them, they cried in private, every night, for months.
