Are Singapore men romantic?

Sometimes, I feel like the male prototype in my relationships because I’m usually the practical, geeky one who prefers to stay home and play games rather than engage in romantic activities, indoors or outdoors.

But that’s not to say that I spurn romance. I have done a lot of romantic things for my partners but the truth is that gaming appeals to me a lot more than, say, a candlelight dinner under the stars.

I think this arrangement suits the guys I’ve gone out with. I have a soft spot for geeky gamer types so there’s usually no problem with my gaming obsession. But, surprisingly, the gamers I’ve gone out with have all displayed a capacity for romance which probably exceeds mine.

    I find Valentine Day to be overhype n become too commercialize.

    You dun have to buy flowers or treat your partner an expensive valentine day dinner to show your love on this day. A simple “I Love You” or a card with some personal message can do wonders. If your relationship is good, everyday can be Valentine Day.

    Like my wife, she told me not to buy any gifts, flowers or dinner. All she want is that I accompany her n stay by her side for this Sat. That’s more than enough for her.

    To All, Happy Valentine Day!

    dead_cockroach: Haha, I suppose I have been lucky then. It’s weird, though. I’m surprised that the other Star Bloggers said opposite things from me. :P

    Darz: Yes, romance can come in many forms!

    Relax: Haha. Yes, I find laughing together with your partner very romantic and I enjoy a lot of that! ;) Uh… pinch cheeks? Why would they do that?? I’m not a baby!

    tiger4: Yeah, Valentine’s Day is overhyped. That’s why I don’t really go all out to celebrate it, but just to take the chance to go out have a meal and buy a small present, just for the fun of it. I mean, we already go out for meals and occasionally buy each other small presents, so V Day isn’t anything special!

    Darz: That’s very romantic! Hope you have an awesome V Day too, this year!

    aaron: Awww, sad. But then playing games is fun. I don’t mind playing games on V Day! :P

    You so lucky to met so many romantic guys. Playing game at home on V Day also good idea, as long as both of you all enjoy each other company.

    P.S Watching anime and playing game to ease my pain on V Day :p
