A competition has been launched in Ireland to find the most unromantic Irish man of 2012. The winner will be sent away to Cyprus, home of the goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite.

Do you know this man or are you the guilty culprit? Have you bought your special lady a food processor as a gift? Have you ever considered proposing in front of the telly? Or is your perfect date a night in watching telly and eating pizza?

Last year, women cited behavior like being treated like an “Irish mammy”, spending too much time with their friends and  buying practical presents such as kitchen equipment as major turn offs.

The winner will finally treat their partner right when they win this competition. They will win a week’s stay at a five-star spa resort as well as trying to learn a thing or two from Cyprus, the island of love.

Irish women all over the world can log on to MostUnromanticMan.ie to explain why her boyfriend, fiancee, husband, or partner, deserves the title. They must also enter a photo of the man in question to be in with a chance to win. It will be then be down to the public to vote on who deserves the title.

Maria Slye from the Cyprus Tourism Organization said, “the reaction to the competition last year was huge and the reasons cited demonstrates that Irish men have a lot of brushing up to do when it comes to romance!”
