10 Things You Will Understand If You Are Not A Romantic Girl But Try To Be One Anyway

Are you one of those girls who looks at love struck peeps with Cupid perpetually hanging out with them and wonder how could any heart hold that much of mushiness when there’s blood inside? Worry not, you have got company because it looks like when it came to being a hard-core romantic, somehow I ended up slipping the wrong door too. Or maybe the right one, who knows? 😛

I absolutely adore romance, but sadly, I am not a romantic girl and here are 10 things which you will relate to if you too have been swinging the same lanes.

1. Too little? Too much

I have it so hard figuring just how much is apt! Too romantic, too little – why the heck is it so hard to measure! Science, simplify please!

2. Too hard to flirt

Found that cute guy who looked like perfect boyfriend material? Well, it totally s**ks that I just don’t know how to flirt. How is it done? Flashing eyelashes or maybe a pout? Damnit- so not my game!

3. The epic seduction fail

Oh don’t even make me recall my epic fails in the category. My inner soul cringes at the memory when my seduction attempts made me the talk of the town albeit for the wrong reasons. *facepalm*

4. Wears makeup || looks like a punk

I shouldn’t even bother fiddling with makeup to up the romantic quotient. Why? Because I will look like a punk who wants to get laid! Ohh- the woes of turning red for romance! *okay, maybe it is not THAT easy!*

5. Honey coated texting –puke!

I would puke if every text I received was bathed in the honey, sweetums, sugar syrup of what people deem romance. Bae, though, I like. Oh God, I am never going to find one though, will I? <cries>

6. Reel to real disaster

I end up seeing a bit too many romantic movies, but guess what? Every time I try to enact a romantic scene; it becomes a comedy of errors (or terrors?). I know the feels. *hugs*

7. Romantic texts. Grammar Nazi mode on

Every time *bae* texts something mushy by killing grammar, the grammar Nazi in me kicks in and he is kicked out. *wonders what went wrong*

8. Date dread

Despite literally praying for a date, an actual date fills my tummy with molten lead or something like that. Could I go in my exercise shirts and tank top? Why should I dress up? I mean isn’t simplicity the best kind of beautiful?

9. SRK overdose doesn’t help either

I even try and watch a marathon of SRK movies because he is the king of romance, but goodness, they don’t help either. I mean, SRK is taken and I am still single damn!

10. God bless science

Maybe, I don’t need to be a romantic, my Sheldon will like me just the way I am. *slips reading glasses and reads vigorously by ditching the terrible date which would, of course, be a disaster*

Relate much? Aw, honey, be my bae 😛

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
