I've always heard girls cribbing that their boyfriends are unromantic. Is it so? Like me, most of you might agree on this. Guys should permanently be tagged as unromantic. What if you're in a relationship and have never had experienced fabled trembling knees, heart in your mouth and butterflies in you belly moments, is it worth continuing? Yes, by saying all this I don't mean to say that your boyfriend doesn't love you, he does, and he does it a lot. It's just that he fails to express because of his unromantic attitude.
Here are the 11 signs that will show that your boyfriend is romantically challenged.
If you're dating a guy, who doesn't know R of romance, don't expect him to praise and appreciate you for the little things you do for him to make him happy. He'll find your gifts of love weird and cheesy.
He is not amongst the one who'll surprise you and stand up to your expectations of romance. You ought to realize he's not worth a plugged nickel! And even if he does that, his surprises are really not like surprises; you're forced to pretend that you're excited.
What if you're expecting your Mr. Perfect to stand with gifts right at 12 midnight on your special day and he turns down and instead forgets to wish you? Can something more be distressing than this? I mean, how could he! It's the same story for any other important day. He's internal RAM has no space for important dates.
No matter how hard he tries, he'll never come up with good gift ideas. You can even expect him to gift you same things every time.
You'll never find him saying I love you, only once in a blue moon or if the situation demands. You might complain him for this, but it's like falling on deaf ears.
The little romantic gestures like eye to eye contact, winking, cuddling, romantic talks or public display of affection (PDA) which might take you on cloud nine but he'll never be interested in all this. It's not on his tintype.
You can expect your unromantic boyfriend to give you a lame reason for not taking you out for a candle light dinner. He might say " What's the need of a candle if there is electricity?"
He'll straight away say about things which may hurt you or make you gloomy. He'll not even care about it.
If you get a chance to spend some quality time alone, you may find him playing video games, using his phone or laptop. He'll never do things which you're expecting him to do. Such a bugaboo he is, isn't he?
You can expect your angry young man to shout or howl at you on your mistakes, though his intentions may not be bad or to make you feel bad; it's just he wants you to learn from your mistakes.
If you're on your periods, and you're feeling extremely low and expecting your boyfriend to pamper you, but unfortunately he has no idea what to do. Seeing you crying will make him panic.
