5 Unromantic Moves To Avoid When Wooing A WomanLiving & Lifestyle
4 minutes read
After planning and budgeting for the new home and all the renovations, some guys may decide to be ultra frugal and super practical. Yet, even though you may have paid through the nose for everything so far, do not commit these mistakes, no matter how tempting they may be.
Propose by asking if she wants to apply for a HDB flat together.
A typically Singaporean male offence that is much lamented and spoofed about in movies and TV shows. But you will be surprised that scores of local men are still using this line of proposal. Even though it may be the most pragmatic way to propose marriage, using this method will gamely show you to be only interested in hurriedly joining the queue for a new flat, without directly proposing to her first!
Buying a household appliance as a present
If you are so pragmatic that you want to get a new electric hot pot as a birthday present for your wife so that she can use it to cook dinner for the whole family, think again. You will probably end up in ‘hot soup’ instead! Household appliances such as refrigerators or microwave ovens should not be given as presents to your wife but employed as home items for common and general use.

A kitchen pan as a birthday present for your wife is not a good idea

Some men may think of giving artificial flowers to declare their undying love or because their spouses are allergic to pollen.

Holding a bouquet of plastic flowers in public will make a lady look like she just stole some decorative flowers from the hand of a mannequin in the retail store!
Hold a candlelight dinner with home-cooked fast food
Imagine your date spending an hour to get all dolled up and ready to make her way to your home for a 5-course meal, thinking that you are cooking the most lovingly prepared fillet mignon. While on the other hand, you got yourself a really cool, all new air fryer and can’t wait to talk about how good it works without the oil. When she arrives, you start air-frying everything from fish balls to French fries for dinner. Big fail! Don’t skimp on your effort to make her feel special in your life – she will appreciate it.
Date her and watch soccer at the same time
Soccer fever may have a special hold on you but your woman is not likely to share your enthusiasm for your favourite team. So, give the games a break when you are out on a date with the special lady in your life. Keep this in mind: your favourite soccer team will always play again in the next season but your woman may not stick around till the next season ...
