Both in reality and in romance novels, heroes have the following traits and act certain ways:
1. The hero is an in-charge kind of guy, someone who is respected and looked up to by others.
2. The hero notices what the heroine is wearing and gives compliments and is interested in what the heroine wants in life.
3. The heroine is excited over the prospect of seeing the hero again and dresses up.
4. The heroine finds that her heart is all a flutter at the sight of the hero.
