was having a discussion with a friend and i said its a waste of time if a girl writes a poem for her bf or puts candles on the table or whatever because men dont appreciate it

fair enough if u are talented enuf to write poems easily but theres not point spending hours doing it cos men dnt like romantic stuff?

guys do u agree with me or not?

I disagree

I love a bit of romance. You're generalising, some do, some don't. Find the ones that do if that's the kind of relationship you want.

No I love my romance.
You two are obviously in pursuit of the wrong types of guys.

If a gal wrote me a poem, I'd certainly have to treat her to a nice meal out

(Only for the first one though. After that's it's obvious she's wanting meals out)

The most romantic gesture you're getting from me is a flavoured condom.

There's no point assuming that all guys don't appreciate "romantic" gestures, just like there's no point assuming that all girls do. Some, like my female best friend, find "romantic" gestures cringey and others, like my boyfriend, love them.

You're probably looking in the wrong places. It's not like we hide from you, we are trying to find lasses who want romance.
It's a shame neither side can find one another haha

Ah, I try to approach the kindest looking guys but for some reason it never goes much further than kissing and having great conversation. It's probably because I don't really pursue a relationship, I just leave them to do the legwork once we know we're interested in each other. I have to change my tactic, I think.

I would say you do need to change tactic. What if the guy was apprehensive?
Both sides have to put the effort in :cool:

I would be flattered if a women wrote a poem for me. It would only go one way though as I am crap at that sort of stuff. I would still appreciate it though.

Yeah, I tend to be quite hot and cold in terms of interaction. I can be friendly or really flirtatious and get somewhere but lose interest too quickly. I'm aware the reason I'm single is because I don't make a continuous effort to pursue someone. I guess when I am ready for another relationship I'll see it through. I don't think I've met that person who I'm able to be completely myself around, though. Last time I had a relationship I found it more and more difficult to be myself and have fun so I just want to enjoy myself, whether that's being single or with someone eventually. I would love to find someone that's equally as strange and not afraid to show how they feel occasionally!

As the above. I think if someone went to that effort, I would be like "Wow"! And even then, you should acknowledge them if they went to that much effort!
