Is Arie Luyendyk, Jr. a hopeless romantic? Well, if you had asked us before today, we would have laughed and laughed and laughed and then made out with our Arie-shaped pillow and wrapped its tiny V-neck shirt-wearing arms around us and laughed some more. But on his Sulia today, Arie posted a little love note to the ladies of the world (and no, it wasn’t just a picture of his mouth).
The speeding Dutchman must have been trolling a Hallmark Gold Crown store for his next special lady friend, because he posted this pic with poet Roy Croft’s quote, “I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.” Awww...wait. How does he manage to make a sweet sentiment feel a little bit impure. And no, not in the anti-Sean Lowe sort of way. Doesn’t this basically mean “I’m using you to be better?” We love love.
But before you go joining a Maureen Dowd book club in protest, just read Arie’s caption first: “This is the type of love I want... I'm still a sucker for love and this quote is great. Your partner should always make you a better person! Xoxoxo.”
Fine. Swoon away.
