A romantic is someone who is closely connected to their emotions and who likes to talk to other people.

The notion of "Romantic" was based on an artistic and literary ideal created by a group of writers and artists in the late 18th and early 19th century. The male romantic hero was extremely sentimental, had powerful emotions, was sensitive to the beauty of nature, prone to melancholia, and usually somewhat of an individualist or outcast attracted to lost causes. He was usually portrayed as talented in poetry or the arts, and is often sickly and dies young.
