Unmasking the Cringe: When Romance Goes Awry

Romance and being romantic can be difficult! Especially if you’re trying to win someone over with something that was done in a movie or isn’t genuine. Men are especially guilty of this! 

Women may find certain behaviors or traits in men to be cringey or off-putting. These could include things like excessive bragging, being overly aggressive or pushy, using cheesy pick-up lines, or failing to read social cues and boundaries. 

One Redditor shared, “I had a man sit me down and play a terrible song on a guitar for me. I know his heart was in the right place, but it was like 4 minutes of uninterrupted eye contact through AWFUL singing and guitar playing where I felt like I had to act like I was swooning the whole time.”

Musical Prowess

This Redditor said, “I once had a date seductively sit me down, then he stood back up and proceeded to do a twenty-five minute, only occasionally funny stand-up routine. He was a firefighter with a slight lisp, and it was all very confusing.”

Cringey Comedy

This Redditor shared, “My brother would go to the bar/restaurant with blueprints and act like a big wig contractor trying to get work done while sipping a beer.”
