What are some "romantic gestures" that you find annoying, irritating, or creepy?

DK/DC/Shh, I'm hunting Cupids: how much sleep do you need a night to function? Do you get enough on a regular basis?

Stealing my used underwear. And I wish Haji would cut it out already!

Making out or French kissing, surprise parties, proposals on holidays (unless that holiday has special meaning to the couples relationship), public engagements like at a football game.

Yes to all of those. I told my boyfriend that if he proposed in public or on a holiday I'd say NO!

I honestly thought I was a weirdo for not liking to french kiss or make out. I don't know why I find it so awkward (unless it's with the right person and it feels uber nice) but 99% of the time I'm just like uhhh lets not make out.

Even WITH the right person I rarely want to make out. It's just freaking gross. For years I tried to make out because I thought it was "normal" but I just don't enjoy it. It's sloppy and nasty and even with good kissers it does nothing for me.

But....you just want to take care of them and have them with you forever! They don't understand our love!

Surprise parties, breakfast in bed, proposals on holidays or in public,

At least 8, ideal is closer to 9 though. I do for now because im still hunting for a job.

Aw, I love breakfast in bed. :/ Not a romantic gesture in my family tho, but a birthday tradition.

Like others have said, huge public proposals. IDK, I just feel like a proposal should be more intimate.

Formal proposals. I'd be furious if my hypothetical boyfriend got on one knee and proposed to me in public before talking with me about our future together, and if we did talk about out future why bother proposing? I just don't get proposals. That's a big decision to make in two seconds.

I need nine hours, and I wish it was less.

Cheesy singing cards. I fucking hate them. I don't know how many hundreds of times I tell my boyfriend this... and what do I get every year... a fucking singing card. UGH.

Inviting someone into the bath with you, unless you are already very clean and/or no actual washing is required in the process. Personal grooming just seems like a thing you'd want to keep to yourself.

I need 7 to 8 hours, and since I work from home, I get it.

I find most typical "romantic gestures" to be trite and impersonal, tbh.
My last real boyfriend sent a dozen red roses and a long flowery letter to me from two states away, and even though it was a really sweet gesture, it made me very uncomfortable because I'm not into things like that and it was just way too much for me. And then I just felt like shit for not being excited about it when most girls I know would have been freaking out (in a positive way).

Rose petal trails to the bed...writing and promptly singing a sing about me while I have to sit and watch...public proposals, or proposals on holidays...these things would all make me CRINGE.

As for sleep...I don't really know, I seem to function well on 7-8 but I RARELY get that. Normally I sleep for 5-6 and I definitely feel it the next day. My sleep patterns are fucked.

French kissing is gross to me. Other than that I can't really think of anything?
