According to the Telegraph, British men are the least romantic in the world, and don't have any idea what women want. But really, what DO women want?
Psychologist and author of the study on romance carried out at the University of Hertfordshire, Richard Wiseman, says women don't want expensive presents.
"Contrary to what many men believe, you do not have to spend large sums of money to woo a woman - it really is the thought that counts," he said.
Wiseman conducted a survey of 6,500 men and women from various countries. He asked men and women what they thought was romantic, and discovered that among the Brits, there was a huge difference between what the women want and what the men thought they want.
Wiseman then made a list of the best ways to "woo" a lady. It starts with "cover her eyes and lead her to a lovely surprise," and ends with "make her a compilation of her favourite music", with the other eight 'advises' pretty much coming out from any chick flick you see.
But British men are unfortunate with their romantic gestures: they are apparently up to 10% less likely to make romantic gestures compared to men from other countries, and when they do, it's usually the wrong one.
Wiseman found that "only 32 per cent of British men had written a song or poem about their partner, compared to 41 percent of non-british men." He also said that only 44 percent had taken their partners on a surprise vacation, compared to the 51 percent of men elsewhere.
