    It comes from handsome is as handsome does. Find the analogies yourself:

    Come back if you can't.

    People who say romantic things are no necessarily romantic. Their doing romantic things will make them romantic. The idea I derive from the expression is that you should not be bowled over by nice words. Actions speak louder than words.

    I hope I am right in thinking that.
