23 Ways You Know You're Not The Romantic Type

Is there a handbook or something?

1. When you played "house" as a kid, you were always the pet. Or the single, wealthy aunt.

2. You're not sure what's so special about a 45-minute wait to eat a meal that costs too much.

3. Getting all dolled up to impress someone else seems a ridiculous waste of your time.

4. It feels wrong to you that people pluck unsuspecting flowers to give as gifts.

5. To you, being swept off your feet sounds like a dangerous activity best left to professionals.

6. Sharing a bed seems more like an invasion of your personal space than a good time..

7. In your vernacular, "breakfast in bed" translates to "crumbs in sheets."

8. Someone throwing rocks at your window isn't romantic. It's an accident waiting to happen.

9. Being serenaded sounds embarrassing and awful for everyone involved.

10. It is beyond your comprehension how people can come up with so many obnoxious pet names.

11. You notice that most love letters are riddled with grammatical errors.

12. More thought has gone into your honeymoon than your actual wedding.

13. You wonder if people get ear sweat during two hour "I miss you" telephone conversations.

14. So you're supposed to spend all of your hard-earned cash to take someone else out? Does not compute.

16. Anytime someone opens a door for you, you suspect foul play.

21. Each romance novel or relationship help book you read incites several eye rolls.

22. You have a few serious, scientific questions about love but no one can answer them.

23. Honestly, the only romantic gesture you understand is the chocolatey kind.
