"ROMANTIC" THINGS I FIND REALLY UNROMANTIC 💔

#singlefolyfe 🙅🏼 (This list makes me sound like The Love Scrooge™, but I promise I'm not.)
  1. Feeding each other
    Um, what the heck are you doing and why are you treating me like an infant?
  2. Terms of endearment
    These could eventually be okay. But being called "babe" or "sweetie" early on skeeves me out. You don't know me like that!
  3. Walking arm-in-arm/his arm around me
    It's awkward and cumbersome! I'm short so any guy I date is likely taller than me, meaning we have different gaits and I don't like the feeling of being reined in when I'm trying to walk. Holding hands is okay, but this is too constrictive.
  4. Oysters
    I'm not sure why these salty sea loogies are considered aphrodisiacs.
  5. Excessive PDA
    I do not understand people who have full-on makeout seshes with other people around. How does one obtain such a thick skin against how uncomfortable one is making everyone else?
  6. Nicolas Sparks movies
    ☹️
  7. Showering compliments
    Sincere compliments every once in a while are wonderful. If a guy constantly compliments, however, it starts to seem insincere and can get kind of awkward pretty fast.
  8. Extremely elaborate and public marriage proposals
    *Cringe* at those viral videos.
  9. Constant text flirting
    Ain't nobody got time for that. I barely even text my friends and family. But nowadays it seems that if you aren't sending a guy emoji-laden flirty texts he's going to assume you hate his guts. I probably don't hate your guts, I just don't have the patience to respond to one-off messages for hours on end.
  10. Tinder
    Nope nope nopedy nope 🙃
