Ok so can anybody reccomend some romance manga with None of these:

-Super Cheesy and cliche shoujo this includes Super cool prince charmings, perfect idols/models, players, wierd school set-ups, Honestly I can name a whole lot more but I think you get what I mean...so other than those shoujo is fine.

-passive female protagnists

-Main characters that fall in love as fast as 1,2,3

-dense characters

-Mindless smut/ecchi(This is really minor because I wouldnt mind the smut/ecchi as long as the story is good)

-lolicons

Any genre is cool but i prefer shounen and seinen. This is probably hard, but I hope that there would be a number of manga out there that fits my description. dead

Kare Kano It may seem to have the prince thing going a little at first but the main couple get together really fast (1st volume) so little of that faffing around watching from afar etc. The rest of the series (another 18 volumes or so) focuses on their relationship and those of their friends.
Yukino, the main girl, is much more like an average (though intelligent and ambitious) girl than most shoujo heroines too.

Hatenkou Yuugi is an interesting series. The female lead is strong and funny, while the male lead is very... cold, but at the same time he can be caring. The anime is like a preview for it (in my opinion) so you could watch that first. I really like this series, so I recommend it!

As long as you're not offended by the theme, Koi Kaze is a fantastic romance with none of the cliches you're talking about.

Otomen
Qi Dan Qu
A Kiss to the Prince
Penguin Kakumei

Some of those are a little cliche but not too bad.
