He actually believed her when she said that.
This occurred after he really didn’t buy her anything for the occasion because he really believed her when she said the week before she didn’t want anything on this day.
Zhen Yuan Wang, the boyfriend, said: “I really had no idea what she said is not what she meant. She said to me a week before Valentine’s Day she didn’t want anything? So what was I supposed to believe?”
“Some days she said she didn’t want to make love and she really meant it during those times.”
Other men who are familiar with this situation can only shake their heads and offer their condolences.
Hong Kan Leow, a man who had the same thing happen to him last year, said: “I was very excited at first because I thought my girlfriend was different.”
“But I guess that’s the price you pay for thinking like a normal man.”
