I'm only 17 years old, but I've been in my fair share of relationships. My mother often asks me how I feel about the boy I brought home or the other boy from a month before. I always say I don't know, and that she knows I have trouble understanding that stuff. My mother is a little more understanding than most, despite making excuses for me when I first told her, since my father was the same way. But romantic partners are another story. I'm lucky enough to be into guys because being into girls would be much harder. Girls grow much more attached and emotional. So my inability to express my romantic feelings towards them would probably just offend them. However, there have been more emotional and clingy guys after me. They express sappiness or ask me an emotion-based question and my replies make me appear cold or like I don't feel the same way.
De fato sei como alguém que é romântico age, ou penso saber.
Mas, ser romântico, isso não consigo ser.
Entregar flores, levar para um passeio...enfim, é isso que uma pessoa romântica faz, isso é fácil fazer. Mas não consigo ser romântico.

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personal trait which affects roughly 10% of the population.
Alexithymia describes the difficulty of people to perceive and describe emotions of others and themselves. Most persons concerned are not aware about this deficit and usually they are just recognizing it in contact with others, especially close friends, within their family or their partner.
