38, the issue is that he created a false impression. He couldn't have written the text himself, so it is understandable why the girl is upset - he pretended to be someone else. On other hand, I seriously dislike the fact that the girl couldn't see through that trick. One copy-pasted text made her "fall in love with him" (just a text, not his personality, character, attitude)? And she didn't notice that the text wasn't his? No offense, but I wouldn't want to date a woman like that. In the end you could say those two deserve each other. The guy was desperate enough to "steal" somebody else's text, and the girl wasn't smart enough to notice the trick. Couples these days...
"Romantic texts" is kind of an oxymoron. This is what passes for romantic these days?
Well, kind of. In a lot of cases, they can work similarly to love letters. If someone wrote out a long, heartfelt letter to you, wouldn't you find it romantic or at least thoughtful? Imagine someone who would regularly write original, romantic letters to you. You'd enjoy that, right? And if you found out that someone else had written those letters for him, you'd have been upset, correct? That is basically exactly what happened here, just with a different media.
9 and 21, so you guys have never talked to a partner through texts? If you have and you don't bother to make them romantic sometimes then that's kinda sad...maybe texts seem more informal to you but they're just another way of communicating. I only get to see my boyfriend at the weekends and even then sometimes I don't because we don't live that near so being able to text him whenever really makes all the difference. I get a semi-romatic text every morning but it feels great to get the extra romantic texts out of the blue and know the other person is thinking of you.
I don't see the problem here. Sure, he got the texts off of a website but he wouldn't have texted them if he didn't mean it. Not everyone is a romantic. Besides, it's the thought that counts!
@10 I agree. My husband is NOT romantic, and he is horrible at putting his feelings into words. He sends me poems he reads that makes him think of me, and often sends me things others have written. I see no problem with this because at least he makes the effort to be somewhat romantic. Not every one is great at expressing how they feel and sometimes feel that they can't find the right words to say, so they seek ways to help. There is nothing wrong with that. It's like dedicating a song to someone, they appreciate it and it makes them feel loved. Why would OP get upset over that. Her boyfriend obviously took the time to find something that he felt described his feelings for her, at least he put forth the effort.
