Are you a Realist or a Romantic?

According to Anthropologist Chris McCollum you can classify people as realists or as romantics by how people tell their stories of falling in love.

".... when people really started opening up about their personal stories, they tended to fall into one of two categories. McCollum describes the first category as "romantics." They tend to believe that the external forces of destiny brought them to their beloved. On the other side of the spectrum are "realists," who tend to believe that random chance brought them together. Either way, both believe the process is out of their control."

However, if the same yardstick is applied, I would be classified as a fatalist.
