I mentioned before how Miranda’s roommate, Darcy is a hopeless romantic and is looking for love. She has a pretty idealistic attitude when it comes to this love thing.
Some of her relationship advice:
“Never date Arkansas boys, only date Texas men. Arkansas boys may have farming money and ranching money, but Texas men have oil money. Enough said.”
“I may be from a small town, but even I know better then to try and intellectualize love. Love is love. That’s it.”
“This is the first big social situation for the soon-to-be epic relationship that is Troy and Miranda. It wouldn’t hurt you to wear something with a little color in it.”
“Get it over with; come on, Randa, this is supposed to be fun.”
“I ‘ve dreamed of finding the perfect guy to sweep me off my feet since I can remember. And I know that makes me sound totally pathetic, but I don’t care. I want a boyfriend who loves and adores me. Someone who not only wants to hang out with me, but prefers it.” She stared off into the unknown. “I want someone who inspires me and who’s proud to be with me.”
What do you think about Darcy’s ideas about relationships and love?

Well, Darcy’s thoughts on relationships are surface only, not deep love. Even still, for a fictional character, I like it! 🙂
Yep. It shows a lot of insight into her character.
I’m halfway through it now! I’m going to go back through all your posts from this month and read them now that I know your characters. I LOVE love love Darcy, by the way!
Glad you like her.
Nothing wrong with that last one, although I guarantee he won’t be perfect.
Darcy can dream, can’t she. haha
Interesting…. There is no perfect man. I thought there was with my husband but not even he is perfect. I love him to death but he can really get on my nerves. 🙂
I think we have to give men credit for trying.
Maybe not perfect, but this is completely attainable and sweet: “I want someone who inspires me and who’s proud to be with me.”
“This is the first big social situation for the soon-to-be epic relationship that is Troy and Miranda. It wouldn’t hurt you to wear something with a little color in it.” <— Ha ha, I like that! Darcy sounds like she must have been a fun character to write 😉
She was a hoot. Something she would say. haha
