All the time Tom, all the time! I always used to think I’m the only one too who feels this way but I lately realize that you, me and a certain(albeit, very few) number of people actually accept they’re dreamers and as you rightly say ‘daring romantics’.
Some people may consider it sad to fall in love or rather believe in the possibility of love ever so often but I think it is the most courageous thing to do. I for one wear my heart on my sleeve and believe in giving love a chance. In giving myself a chance.
And yes, living the dream is way more exciting than imagining it. But the stepping stone to every journey is the faith to do so and the love to begin with.
Here’s hoping you find yours soon.
