I want to hear your thoughts about using poetry to win over someones heart. Yes, it is the old fashioned way woo a lady. When I was a young teenager (12-14) I thought of it as an easy way to win someone over, and yes I used it. Easy because you can think about some poetic things to say before you go on a date or ask someone on a date. But as I got older, the girls I was wooing got older, and those girls didn't like this anymore. Which was too bad for me, because I am, nay, was very good at this. Guys even came to ask me for lines. You might not notice this from my writing, but English is not my native language, so there you go. I have always wanted to do a Rome and Juliet balcony scene. (I'm a hopeless romantic) Please consider for this poll: The 'poetry' we are talking about does not have to be actual poem, just 'something poetic'.
