Do you swan around in floaty dresses and carry a parasol to shield your skin from the mid-day sun?
Do you expect to be sent flowers for no reason, whisked away on surprise weekends in 5* hotels, find diamonds at the bottom of your wine glass, Godiva chocs left on your pillow after the bed has been strewn with rose petals?
Or are you simply looking for an occasional cuddle on the sofa, a kiss when you least expect it, words of love and appreciation that come from the heart, and to be told you're looking especially lovely before setting off for a party?
If it's the latter, how romantic are you when it comes to making these romantic gestures to your dh?
So, you're after "demonstrative" and perhaps to some extent, reassurance? I feel a bit sympathetic towards him when you've married him for who he is. Are there other people or activities that could satisfy your "dreamworldy" needs?
I don't think one bunch of flowers in 6 months is too bad, tbh, I only expect to get flowers on special occasions (birthday, valentines, mothers day etc.)
I was going to suggest the Love Languages test but misty beat me to it! Do have a look at it and ask your DH to also do it. You may find he is already doing things that express his love for you, just not in the way you might expect.
