Random Thought to Ponder: Are Guys Romantic?

Part of me is hesitant to even say this aloud (or written. same same). To be honest, I’m more curious than accusatory. And, boys, I don’t mean to offend, but…

Consider for a moment the lyrics in the following songs:

  • The Luckiest- Ben Folds
  • Can’t Take My Eyes off You- Lady Antebellum
  • Amazed- Lonestar
  • Wedding Dress- Matt Nathanson

There are more, but those 4 in particular have been running through my head all day.

All (predominantly) male artists, right? And all heart-wrenching-ly romantic songs. I guess I’m just wondering if guys really think that way. Or do they just have really good lyricists well-versed in the female psyche?
