I have somehow always been attracted to the Sheldon Coopers of the world for some inexplicable reason, so we're measuring with a different ruler here! The most romantic marriage proposal one of these left-brained guys could muster (on Valentine's Day no less) was: "I think we should start to look at each other as potential marriage partners." My heart was all aflutter! The other most romantic moment in my life is when I was on a date with my present husband sitting at a tall table a Sports Bar on an uncommonly quiet night. Something triggered a political discussion, and I was going on and on about my social justice views and ranting and raving about injustice in the world when I looked at Mike and his eyes simply shone with fascination and admiration. I remember thinking "WHAT in the heck is he smiling at?" and then I realized he was smiling admiringly at my ideas! So like Amy, in "Big Bang" we know our source and evaluate the comments from these guys on a relative scale; we recognize "romantic" from them even though the world might not.
