I'd think of it like this : he went out of his way, risked being exposed to those that use the same computer, found the text he thought was perfect for you and made that effort to send it to you. Unlike any other douche that texts bullshit just to sound good.

Yeah 73 a relationship should never be about texting. Especially starting one. It needs physical interaction, actual communication. I don't understand how people can have relationships like this. Times are changing I guess...

It's a form of communication. I don't see the problem if two people make it known they are interested in another and then pursue a physical relationship afterward.

True that, if I found out my boyfriend was copying sappy love quotes off the Internet for me I'd feel honored he put in that much effort.

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. I

Exacly! Why not??? Op has a romantic bf but not a poet! The only problem will be if he claimed that he wrote them from the heart..

"I was snooping through his browsing history, thoroughly inspecting every website, when I accidentally discovered the website he was using to get romantic texts."

Oh 93, if I could thumb you up multiple times I would - that killed me. I hate those stupid chain stories so much but this made them slightly less painful.

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 rom

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!

Except there's no thought to it, since he plagiarized the texts rather than bothering to speak from his heart.

Well at first he was trying to impress her. Maybe he felt like he needed to be extra impressive, and then she just started to expect it? But yes, I do see your point. He should have spoken from his heart. It would have meant more to her.

What are you talking about? Hallmarks made a fortune writing what people feel but are unable to express in their own words. (Love ballads do the same thing.) Damn you, Bruno Mars! "I should have bought you flowers"

@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 someon

So what, OP? Might want to consider whether you're being just a little too demanding or get ready for a lonely lonely life!!
