(HealthDayNews) -- If your male significant other forgets your anniversary, stops bringing flowers and loses interest in romantic behavior, don't get mad, get concerned.

Men are hopeless romantics, British researchers conclude, so when a man sets a low level of importance on romantic acts -- like bringing home flowers or enjoying candlelight dinners -- it may be a sign of depression, according to the journal Psychological Reports.

So if he forgets an anniversary, don't get angry. It may be hurting him a lot more than it's hurting you.
