Foods I can't taste....?

I've never tried this before but my BF knows I love spicy foods, he mentioned that it's really spicy and to just use a little so I did, but I couldn't taste anything. Then I kept using more and more until I can taste a little flavor and still no spice or anything just a little hint of garlic. But my boyfriend freaked out because the amount I was using was apparently more than an average person should be able to handle, and yet I couldn't taste a bit of spiciness. I even chewed the seeds to see if I'd get that kick, but still no punch in this spicy chili oil... am I completely weird or do you guys have certain foods you can't taste or have the same reaction to spicy foods as I do??
