It just means that the grand romantic gesture is not a part of their vocabulary.One year, after yet another birthday disappointment, I finally realized that something had to change — and that something was me…I mistakenly viewed television-style romance as concrete proof of true love.I believed that all men could be moved to extreme romantic measures if they really loved their lady.
