Paralegal Moonlights as a “Hopeless Romantic”

Paralegal Moonlights as a “Hopeless Romantic”

Mississippi paralegal Beverly Jackson and her best friend, Felicia Simmons, help “romantically-challenged” men create romantic ambiance for their significant others, courtesy of their business, Hopeless Romantics. Both work full-time, but on evenings and weekends, create romantic rooms for birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day and even a proposal.


Jackson attorney David Nelson can tell you firsthand. He hired Hopeless Romantics in December to help celebrate his fiance’s birthday.

“We went out to eat with some friends and had a great time,” says Nelson, 33. “I had a gift for her back at the house, so we stopped by there afterward. When we walked in, she couldn’t believe it. They had rose petals scattered on the floor. Chocolate-covered strawberries. Champagne and two glasses. Candles burning.”

“She was like, ‘When did you have time to do all this?’ You should have seen the look on her face. I didn’t have the heart to tell her somebody did it for me. But it was the thought behind it that counted, is the way I looked at it.”

Nelson says his fiance was “blown away.” He adds: “I stepped on flowers for three days, but it was worth it.”

Congratulations to Ms. Jackson and Ms. Simmons for creating a beautiful business model. So, for those of us who don’t live in Mississippi, when will romantic ambiance be available for purchase online?
