Standing outside an ex’s house to declare your love
There’s a fine line between making an effort to win them back, and doing borderline crazy things “out of love.”
So unless you’re John Cusack in an 80s film, it’s not in any way romantic to stand outside your ex’s window in the middle of the night holding a boom box over your head and playing the song you had sex the first time with her to.
Writing a long message about an ex on Facebook
Have you ever read a long Facebook post that narrate someone’s love story from when the relationship began and why it had to end, complete with a message to the ex, saying “I only wish happiness for you”?
Okay, maybe some of us have our own way of coping with breakups. But publicly announcing it with a heartfelt story that could be submitted as an MMK episode? It’s kind of like you’re craving attention for yourself, isn’t it?
Picking on someone because you like them
Bullying is never a good thing, no matter what the situation. Don’t believe anyone who says “inaaway ka lang niyan dahil may gusto siya sayo.” That is definitely not how love and attraction should be expressed.
Unless your significant other or your crush likes the attention and are just as fanatical over you as you are over him or her, then grand displays of affection are not going to win his or her heart.
Public proposals are manipulative and put insane amounts of pressure on the guy or girl in question because they don’t want to look bad for rejecting someone who had just put on so much effort for them.
So if you were one of those who thought it was “cute” that someone would go to great lengths like putting up a billboard to ask someone out on a date, you need to rethink your definition of romance.
